This weekend I found a great recipe for Baked Oatmeal in an old
Mennonite cookbook. It needed a little modification to be fat-free,
but turned out to be fantastic and will be a family favorite from now
3 C. oatmeal
1/2 to 1 C. brown sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 C. applesauce
1 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs worth Ener-g egg replacer equivalent
1 C. rice milk
1/2 to 1 C. raisins or blueberries
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix the dry ingredients in one bowl. Mix the wet ingredients in another bowl. Stir the wet and dry ingredients together and add the raisins or blueberries. Spread in a 9x9 pan, lightly sprayed with nonstick spray. Bake 20-30 minutes. Serve as-is, or top with some sort of milk.
Notes: This turns out almost like a cake. One cup of sugar made it way too
sweet for me; I'll use 1/2 cup next time. I did use egg replacer and had good results. I also used rice milk instead of regular cow milk. Maybe soy milk would work just at well.
When my dh travels, I always send him with canned goods that he can eat at room temp like green beans, corn, kidney beans, etc...
Fresh fruit, cut up veggies will last a couple days...you could also keep things in your car (now that the weather is getting cooler).
Great job planning ahead! Let us know how it goes! And enjoy the retreat!
