Preheat oven to 350oF.
In ONE bowl mix together:
- 2 tbsp oil
- 2 tbsp maple syrup (or honey)
- 2 eggs (or ½ cup flax eggs)
- 1 cup of milk (of choice)
- 2 tsp of pure vanilla
- 2/3 cups of apple sauce
- pinch of salt
- 1 tsp of cinnamon (or to taste, I doubt I ever only put one)
3 cups of quick cooking oats
mix in 1 tbsp of baking powder and then mix in with wet ingredients
Stir in: 1 cup of blueberries; 1 or 2 apples, peeled & chopped.
Top with – nuts and seeds of choice
Bake in a greased 9×9 pan for 50 minutes.
Note: many baked oatmeal recipes recommend preparing the night before and simply putting in the oven the next morning. This works well for a big crowd!
