My 2-yr old has always disliked oatmeal, so I thought I'd try a baked version - and he's eating it up today! He also has had an issue with gaining weight so I've fatted this version up - you can always use a lower fat milk, and even leave the oil out. Also, you could use 2 mashed bananas for the 1/2 cup of applesauce. I cut these into 8 strips and then wrap each one separately and put in fridge or freezer. They defrost easily in the microwave. You can also double the recipe and put in 8x8 pan.
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 1⁄2 cup whole milk
- 1 egg
- 2 tablespoons oil
- 1⁄2 cup applesauce
- 1⁄4 cup brown sugar
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Beat egg with milk.
- Stir in oil, applesauce, vanilla.
- Mix in oats, brown sugar and cinnamon.
- Pour into greased 5x9 loaf pan.
- Bake in 350 F oven for 30 minutes.
I used baby food peaches in place of applesauce, and butter instead of oil...
My 14 month old really likes this! The only thing I changed was to use melted butter in place of the oil. Thanks for a good toddler recipe!
Luckily, I realized this recipe was for toddlers and not adults, I didn't like it, but my kiddoes went nuts! My lil guys a bruiser, so I used 1% and omitted the oil.
