Sorry for the long absence...life, germs, etc....sometimes it can't be helped.
OK, I've been promising this recipe to a friend for way too long. I finally ran across it today so that means I must post it today!
BAKED BLUEBERRY OATMEAL - adapted from food.com #335522 - 350F oven
Butter a 9x9 pan. I've used both metal and ceramic; comes out fine either way.
Mix together the following:
4 T butter, melted
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup applesauce, unsweetened
1 1/2 cups milk (I always use unsweetened almond Silk, vanilla if I have it)
Then combine the following and add to above mixture:
3 cups quick or regular gluten-free oats (regular is best!)
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 'loaded' tsp cinnamon
After combining the 'dry' with the 'wet' ingredients, add:
1 cup blueberries (I use frozen all the time; may add a few minutes to baking time)
Spread evenly in pan. Bake about 35 minutes. The original 'poster' said you can make this the night before and keep it in the frig til you want to bake it. It goes together so quickly that I've never bothered to make it ahead. If you do, though, it will take a few extra minutes to bake if pulled straight from the frig.
I always serve this with homemade blueberry sauce! I have an older More with Less cookbook that has a great recipe for it! But there are plenty of options online!
I can eat this stuff all day long.....so I don't make if very often!
