Clean Eating Cookie Dough Baked Oatmeal

Makes 8 servings

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?! My sister, Anthea, doesn't find that funny at all. She accuses me of hoarding all the good stuff ;)

  • 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.
