After reading about so many people making baked oatmeal, I thought I should try it. I have oatmeal for nearly every breakfast, and there are so many different ways to prepare it. I want to try as many different options as I can. This recipe is inspired by Kath, but I’ve made a lot of changes and I’ve also veganized it.
2 cups old fashioned oats
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup water
1 cup soymilk
1/2 cup applesauce
other sweetener – sugar, honey, etc… (optional)
1 banana, sliced
brown sugar for sprinkling (optional)
1. Preheat oven to 375F.
2. Mix together the oats, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, and sweetener, if using. Add the water, soymilk, and applesauce. Mix well.
3. Spray two 8-inch round baking tins with nonstick cooking spray, or line them with parchment paper. Pour half of the oats mixture into each. Top with sliced bananas.
4. Bake at 375F for 30 minutes. If you want to add some sweetness, sprinkle some brown sugar on top of the oatmeal and turn it to broil for the last 5 minutes.
5. Eat! These are great with peanut butter, margarine, syrup, agave nectar, soy yogurt, or fresh fruit. You can cut them up and freeze them for a quick breakfast.
