Recipe of the Week II: Baked Oatmeal

I can't understand why I forget about this recipe, because it's so good! But when I'm on the ball, the kids are happy kids (at least in the morning!).

Baked Oatmeal

3 cups rolled oats
1 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
2 eggs
1/2 cup melted butter
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3/4 cup dried cranberries

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

In a large bowl, mix together oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt. Beat in milk, eggs, melted butter, and vanilla extract. Stir in dried cranberries. Spread into a 9x13 inch baking dish.

Bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes.

This morning we left out the cranberries and added a cup of shredded coconut and a cup of white chocolate chips (what the heck--it's still summer time!). Delicious!

Buon Apetito!

Great recipe!! We tried it this morning. When I said oatmeal for breakfast they all scowled. Now, after eating oatmeal this way - they want more tomorrow!
