Just thought this up one morning and couldn't find any others like it on the site. Still in the tinkering/perfecting process so any suggestions are welcome :) (Thanks to Maito for some wonderful suggestions already!) Also, note that the type of oats you use will change the consistency of the oatmeal... quick oats will yield a cake-like oatmeal, whereas old fashioned oats will be a little more liquidy
- 1⁄2 cup old fashioned oats
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 3 tablespoons brown sugar or 3 tablespoons Splenda sugar substitute
- 1 -2 tablespoon chocolate chips
- 1 tablespoon chopped nuts (optional)
- 1⁄4 cup skim milk (See note about water or milk combo)
- 1⁄4 cup water
- 1 tablespoon Egg Beaters egg substitute
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease well an individual sized oven-proof dish/ramekin (at least 12 oz, this will bubble a bit).
- In a small bowl, combine first 5 ingredients (oats through chocolate chips, plus nuts if you're using them).
- In a separate bowl, combine remaining wet ingredients (milk through vanilla).
- Mix together wet and dry ingredients. Pour into baking dish.
- Bake 30-40 minutes or until top is crispy and oatmeal is relatively firm (quick-oats will firm up more than old-fashioned). Let cool 5-10 minutes.
- NOTE: Alternately, all milk can be used, but this may make the oatmeal a little looser in consistency, since oats absorb water a little better than milk. If you choose to use all milk, quick oats may be a better choice :).
- Also, If you want a larger serving size, use 3/4 cup oats and increase water to 1/2 cup.
This was the first time I have ever had baked oatmeal and it was sooo good! I made a few changes by using all water, omitting the chocolate chips, and using splenda. With these changes the calorie amount comes to about 250. Thanks for a great recipe!
Thank you. This was perfect, and saved me from making and eating a whole batch of cookies. No egg beaters, and one whole egg worked fine.
Originally reviewed April 12, 2008. This made it into my book#207955. This was so incredible! It contains some of my favorite ingredients, and I love how you get chocolate chips in every bite (even with the lower amount). I used quick oats, just a pinch of salt, double the nuts, and about half the sugar (I do not like things too sweet). I only cooled it 2-3 minutes, I was afraid it would get cold if I waited 5-10 minutes. You have a winner here! Thanks for incorporating my suggestions. :)
