This was submitted to the local newspaper many years ago by the Texas Pecan Growers Association. It's a warm and delicious breakfast treat!
- 1⁄4 cup oil
- 1⁄2 cup brown sugar
- 1 egg

- 1 1⁄2 cups oatmeal
- 1⁄2 tablespoon baking powder
- 1⁄2 cup skim milk
- 1⁄4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Combine oil, sugar, egg, and pecans in a medium bowl. Add oatmeal, baking powder and milk and stir until blended.
- Pour into a lightly-greased 8x8 baking dish. Sprinkle with nutmeg and cinnamon.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Cut into squares and serve hot or cold with milk and/or fruit.
Delicious! I read the reviews about the dish being on the dry side & considered altering the milk, eggs or adding applesauce, but instead I just baked it in four 6-oz ramekins instead of an 8x8 dish. I reduced the timing to 20 minutes & they were perfect. Moist on the inside & slightly firm to crunchy on the top. The only real changes I made to the recipe were to add about 1/2 cup pomegranate flavored dried cranberries & stirred in the spices instead of sprinkling on top. I did that because it wasn't actually me making the dish, but my DH & toddler DD. I stood by, barking out orders & filing my nails. LOL This recipe is super easy & breakfast was on the table in less than 30 minutes total. We're so happy we tried it & made a family affair out of it! :) Thanks for posting, loof! Made & enjoyed for Zaar Stars tag game.
Delicious! My family loves baked oatmeal so I am always looking for different ways to make it. This goes together very quickly and easily and turned out perfect. I was a little surprised at previous reviewers who said that this was dry. Isn't that the way baked oatmeal is supposed to be? The whole idea is to scoop it into a bowl and add milk to it...right? This was a huge hit with my family. I guess that we have larger appetites than most as this would have only made 2 servings for my family. I'm glad that I doubled the recipe. I made this as written, except that I stirred the spices into the mixture instead of adding them on top, and I added a large handful of fresh blueberries. We really loved the addition of the chopped pecans. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe...it is definitely a keeper!!

YUMMO. . .what a great way to start the day. . .and it was so easy to throw together! Perfect for this rainy fall morning. Next time I will use 1/4 cup sugar and see how that works, as it was a little too sweet for my taste. Of note, I used 2 T melted vegan margarine and 2 T walnut oil with great results. Also stirred my spices into the mixture instead of sprinkling them on top. This is an attractive and easy breakfast perfect for a weekday OR for company. THANKS! Made for Photo Tag.
