I love apples, and oatmeal. You may use quick or old fashioned oatmeal for this — just whatever you have. Try this with some frozen blueberries or any other dried fruit. I used Craisins and frozen raspberries often. This is another recipe from the wall of our old house. Which means, I have no idea where it came from after 7 years. I'm posting these because they are my favorites if they made it to the wall. As one reviewer said, it holds well in the fridge, because I usually make mine on a Sunday night, then the kids have something hearty and warm in the morning before the mad dash to school!
- 1 1⁄3 cups oatmeal
- 1 cup raisins

- 1⁄4 cup walnuts, chopped
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Mix everything together in a greased 1 quart casserole.
- Bake, uncovered, for 30 minutes or until milk is absorbed.
- Serve with milk or cream. Add more sugar or other toppings to your heart's desire.
Absolutely wonderful. I change the recipe depending on what I have and what I want. Sometimes I use pecans, sometimes I make it sugar free with splenda for my mom, sometimes I use bananas...you just can't miss with it! Fantastic as a leftover too!
I just finished eating a bowl of this oatmeal. It was delicious. I made 1/2 the recipe and baked for about 25 minutes. I doubled the amount of apples and nuts. In the future I will cut down on the sugar as it was very sweet.
So good! Almost more like a pudding, than breakfast. I reduced sugar to 2/3 cup and raisins to 1/2 cup.
