Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal

This one was GOOD.
We gobbled it up and there wasn't much leftover!
Peighton told me it tasted like apple crisp and I'd have to agree!
She often eats like a bird....but she ate two bowls of this!!!!
What a great breakfast to have before I sent her off to Kindergarten.
Since I made it on a school morning, I combined the wet ingredients and the dry ingredients the night before in seperate containers.
Then I just had to dump it all together in the morning and throw it in the oven.
And since it only bakes for about 20 minutes it was a pretty quick breakfast to throw together.
I like that there are lots of chopped apples in it as well as applesauce.
We didn't add any additional toppings but we did discuss what other fruits we'd use for next time!
Bananas, blueberries and pears were on our list!
Recipe from: Here
2 cups old fashioned oats-not quick oats!
¼ cup light brown sugar
1½ teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
1½ cups skim milk
½ cup applesauce
1 tablespoon melted butter
2 egg whites
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 large Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored and diced
Optional Toppings:
brown sugar
dried cranberries
chopped almonds
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat an 8-by-8 inch baking dish with cooking spray and set aside. In a large bowl, combine oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, baking powder and salt. In a medium bowl, whisk together milk, applesauce, butter, egg whites and vanilla. Pour wet ingredients over dry ingredients and stir until combined. Gently stir in diced apples. Pour oatmeal mixture into prepared pan. Bake for 20 minutes or until oatmeal is golden brown and set. Remove from oven and serve warm. Add additional toppings to baked oatmeal, if desired.
