Variations on Baked Oatmeal

I have shared the hearty and very nutritious gingerbread version here.

her are some variations:

 

Raisin Cookie Oatmeal

Beat four eggs, set aside.

in a bowl combine 6 cups of oats, 1 – 2 cups brown sugar (or a combo of brown sugar and molasses or maple syrup, but add the liquids later, with the milk), a tsp of salt, a Tablespoon plus a tsp of baking powder and a teaspoon of cinnamon  Stir well.

Add a cup of melted butter (or other fat), 2 cups of milk, 4 beaten eggs, 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract

Mix well.

Stir in 1 1/2 cups of raisins (don’t be pernsnickety about the exact amount, it doesn’t matter, I’ll be picking them out anyway).

Bake in a large (9X13) greased cake pan or casserole dish for about 45 minutes to an hour.  It shouldn’t be really liquidy, but it could be a little loose in the middle.  Edges will be browned.  You can also split it between pie pans and bake it a bit faster.

Store any leftovers in the fridge, have them with milk for an afternoon snack.

 

Fruity Oatmeal Bake

Everything above is the same, EXCEPT no raisins or cinnamon, and use a different sweetener- white sugar, honey, a carton of frozen juice concentrate of the flavor that seems good to you.  Add a couple cups of fruit, diced, fresh, frozen, sliced your choice.  You might like a couple bananas and a cup or two of blueberries.

Tropical:
Everything above is the same, except no raisins or cinnamon.  Use sugar or frozen concentrated pine-apple juice for sweetener (or add some honey).  Stir in a couple cups of diced frozen tropical fruits- mango, pineapple, papaya, etc. Use fresh if you have it and it’s good.  Add coconut if you like the texture (I do, many people do not).

 

Peaches and Cream:

Everything in the first recipe EXCEPT for spices use a tsp of cinnamon and 1/2 a teaspoon of nutmeg, then stir in two cups (more or less) of diced fresh peaches or diced frozen peachs.

Tip: If you use frozen fruit add to the baking time or let the fruit come to room temp first.

    I sometimes add mashed banana to the wet ingredients and cinnamon to the dry. I also store in walnuts at the end. Yum!
