We have this for breakfast at LEAST once a week. It is a favorite of all of the kids and I love that it makes enough for leftovers for the next day. I didn't realize just how much we ate it until we took a month long trip back to the States...and I was without my recipe card box. You know me, even though I make it every single week, I can't cook anything without the recipe. This is adapted from this recipe so I was able to look up the original and re-figure out how I make it but I thought maybe it was a sign I needed to hurry up and post it. Makes you wonder what other things I have hidden away in my recipe box, doesn't it?!
- 3 cups uncooked oatmeal
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/3 cup natural sweetener (I use sucanat)
- 1 1/2 cups applesauce or mashed banana
- 1 1/2 cups milk of choice
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/3 cup chocolate chips
- 1/4 cup peanut butter (or coconut oil/butter/other nut butter)
ONE: Preheat the oven to 380 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray a 9x13 pan or muffin cups with cooking spray.
TWO: Mix everything together and pour into prepared pan. Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden brown and the top springs back.
