Today I'd like to share a recipe for low fat baked oatmeal.
I know..the words low fat and oatmeal aren't very exciting...but this was really good!
I've never had baked oatmeal before but I've seen many recipes for it. I have several copied down, and finally made this one last weekend for breakfast.
I'm glad I tried it! It was delicious. Every bite was full of tender baked apples and cranberries, with cinnamon and maple syrup. I drizzled alittle bit more maple syrup on top of Brent's..he doesn't even like oatmeal..but he liked it this way!
Another bonus...one whole cup was only 224 calories, 2 fat, and 4 fiber!
Low Fat Baked Oatmeal
2 c. old fashioned oats
1 3/4 c.boiling water
2 c. fat free milk
1 1/2 c. chopped peeled apples
3/4 c. dried cranberries
1/4 c. maple syrup
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
Place oats in a bowl, cover with boiling water. Let stand minutes. Stir in remaining ingredients. Bake at 350 in a 11x 7" greased pan. Cover for 40 minutes, uncovered for 10 until bubbly and set.
