By Cathy Fisher
Baked oatmeal is delicious for breakfast or as a snack bar when cooled. Baking oatmeal results in a spongy texture, much like bread pudding. It's easy to make and customize with your favorite fruit and spices.

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 3/4 cups nondairy milk (plus more, for serving)
  • 1 apple, cored and chopped (peeled or unpeeled)
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup raisins

Directions

Preheat the oven to 375F. Mix all ingredients together in a medium bowl.

Spread evenly into an 8x8-inch baking pan, and bake uncovered for 30 minutes until lightly browned.

To serve for breakfast, spoon into bowls with a little nondairy milk. To serve as snack bars, allow to cool completely before cutting into 16 squares.
