I got a recipe from friends after tasting it (divine!) but was a little aghast at how much sugar and butter was required. I made it a few times, adjusting the amounts each time, and this is where I've ended up... and it's healthy enough for an everyday treat for us rather than just special occasions. (I also added cinnamon and nutmeg because I love that oatmeal-cookie taste.) Note: The original recipe says it serves six. Ha. In our house, it's more like three. Delicious with yogurt, fruit, ice cream, or any combination of the three.
- 1⁄2 cup milk
- 1⁄4 cup coconut oil (or butter)
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 3⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)
- 1⁄4 teaspoon nutmeg (optional)
- 2 tablespoons raisins (or nuts, also optional)
- 1 1⁄2 cups oatmeal (rolled or quick oats, I use rolled)
- Mix the liquids and egg, stirring well- the butter/coconut oil will start to congeal again quickly, so get the liquids moving to break it up.
- Add the sugar and powders. Stir well, then dump in the oatmeal and raisins/nuts.
- Pour into an 8x8 (a little cakey) or 9x13 pan (crispier) and bake 25 min at 350 degrees.
- Serve alone or with yogurt, fruit, or ice cream.
