Brian loves this oatmeal! Definitely one of his favorites. He could eat it every day. The kids all enjoy it too and it is such a wonderful smell to greet you in the morning!
1/2 cup applesauce
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tablespoon baking powder
3 cups regular oats
1/2 cup craisins or raisins
Mix all together. Pour into a 9 x 13 inch baking dish. Sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon, if you'd like. Refrigerate overnight.
The next morning, put it in a cold oven and set it at 350 degrees. Bake about 40 minutes.
This is a little cake like, not like regular oatmeal.
This is going into some of the gift boxes I'm making too-- it fits great into a jar. I put powdered milk into the mix, so I'll just tell them to add applesauce, eggs and water.
