Soaked Baked Oatmeal

I found this recipe one day while blog-hopping and finally tried it last night/this morning!  It was awesome!  If you like oatmeal, you should try this.  It was just as tasty as pancakes, but a whole lot healthier.

Here’s the recipe but you can also find it on the original post.

The night before, mix the following in an 8×8 pan:

2 cups oatmeal (I used quick-oats)
1 cup yogurt  (I used plain)
1/2 cup water

Cover with a kitchen towel and let soak overnight on the counter.  (Read more about soaking grains on her site and also at Kitchen Stewardship).

In a bowl, mix:
2 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup oil (I used coconut oil)
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup milk
(can add 1-2 cups fresh, frozen, or dried fruit)
Add this mixture to the soaked oats and mix well.  Bake at 350 for 40 minutes.

Serve plain, or top with yogurt, milk, or applesauce. (We used jam and maple syrup)

Hurray for nutritious and delicious!  Also, if you want to find out more about the health benefits of maple syrup, go here.
