Baked Oatmeal Recipe

Erin (Hi Erin ::waving:: )asked for my baked oatmeal recipe. It is based on the baked oatmeal recipe from Money Saving Moms. I looked all over her blog and cannot find it, but I did print it several months ago, so I will post her recipe first, then mine.

MSM Baked Oatmeal:

4 eggs
1 Cup Oil
1 1/2 Cup Sugar
6 Cups Oats
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 t salt
cinnamon (optional)
2 Cups Milk

Let sit for 5 minutes so the milk will soak into the oats. Then pour into a greased 9X13 pan and bake at 350 for 25 minutes. If you like, you can sprinkle chopped apples and raisins and cinnamon on top before baking.

Here is how we make it here:

4 eggs
1 cup butter, melted
3/4 cup sugar
4 cups oats
1/2 cup white flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup flax meal, buckwheat flour, oat flour, wheat germ (I just put the 1/2 cup measure out and add these things until I get to the top of the measuring cup - basically what you are looking for is 2 cups of flour - we just break it down as noted)
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups milk (sometimes I replace part of the milk with a few tablespoons of pureed white or garbanzo beans to up the protein)

In addition to letting it sit for 5 minutes, you can refrigerate it over night before baking. This recipe makes so much that we only bake it once every 3 weeks or so.
