Easy Like Sunday Morning Baked Oatmeal

 

My Mom has been in town for the weekend and she will be headed back home later this morning. This makes me sad, but I want to send her off with a tummy full of good food! I kept reading about people making baked oatmeal*. I combined a few different recipes, tweaking to include what I like (and had on hand) and cutting out additional fats. Here is what I came up with.

Food - Baked Oatmeal 002

Easy Like a Sunday Morning Baked Oatmeal with Berries (totally deserves the long-ass name)

2 cups quick cooking oats

2 cups skim milk

2 tsp vanilla extract

1/4 cup raisins

2 tsp cinnamon

1/4 cup Sugar Free Maple Syrup

3 tsp Splenda Brown Sugar Blend

1/2 cup frozen mixed berries (optional)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees and spray an 8x8 pan with non-stick spray. Combine all ingredients above in a bowl and pour into prepared baking pan. Place in the oven and bake for 30-35 minutes until desired consistency.

Remove from oven and cut into 6 sections. I topped ours with frozen mixed berries that I put in the microwave for 2 minutes (stirring every 30 seconds) and sprinkled with Splenda. What resulted is a filling, yummy breakfast that looks pretty too! This was quick to throw together and I usually have everything needed on hand.

I hope you are enjoying your Sunday morning!
