For a quickie recipe, this is pretty good! A 'rip' from a few recipes found on-line, I can't help but mess with what was probably a good thing already! But here's how we're eating it right now! (Actually, I'm eating most of it...because if I stick it in the back of the frig and it suddenly becomes invisible, I can lay claim to most of it "honestly"!! Hey, a gal's gotta do what a gal's gotta do, right?!?)
Baked Cran-Apple Oatmeal - I used a sprayed 9x9 metal pan - 350F oven
3 cup unsweetened vanilla almond Silk Combine Silk and brown sugar in
1/4 cup brown sugar in small pan; bring barely to a boil.
1 1/2 cups GF rolled oats Combine next 5 ingredients in medium bowl.
2 tsp ground cinnamon Spread evenly
1 cup (loaded is fine) diced apples (I like yellow Delicious) in pan. Pour
1/2 cup (loaded is fine) dried cranberries (mine were sliced) heated mixture
1/2 cup coarsely chopped pecans over oatmeal mixture.
Bake til liquid is absorbed, oatmeal is cooked, 30-35 minutes. I sometimes turn the oven off at 30 minutes and let it "coast" that last 5 minutes. Otherwise, I bake it for 31-32 minutes.
Optional: You can add a little butter (1T) to the Silk/sugar if you want a slightly creamier texture and "smoother" flavor. Good but not necessary. Any "milk" will probably work just fine, too. I might try coconut milk with a mango/dried pineapple combo with macadamia nuts someday! With toasted coconut to top? Yum!!
You can top it any way you like or eat it plain!
