Baked Oatmeal

Through the years I have tried to learn to enjoy boiled oatmeal.  I can tolerate it, but it is still not on my list of favorite foods.  However, baked oatmeal, in my opinion, is delicious.  I was first introduced to baked oatmeal while volunteering with the summer home-repair program, Sharing With Appalachia People (SWAP).  On Sunday mornings, baked oatmeal has become a stand-by recipe for our family.  I have adapted the original recipe to have more natural ingredients, less sweetener, and soaked grain.  Our family enjoys it, and I hope you will to.

Baked Oatmeal

4 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats

1/4 cup oil

1/4 cup plain yogurt

1/4 cup honey

1 1/2 cups milk

3 eggs

3 tsp. baking powder

Combine oats, oil, yogurt, honey, and milk.  Cover and let set on counter over night.  The next morning, stir in eggs and baking powder.  Bake in a greased 9″x13″ pan at 350 F for 30-35 minutes.  You may serve with cinnamon, brown sugar, peaches, raisins, etc.  Leftovers reheat nicely in a toaster oven.
