Cold and Snowy, Make baked Oatmeal
Nothing too exciting to look at, but oh so very yummy. I am not a fan of cooked oatmeal and neither is my son. I love granola, but sometimes it is a bit tiresome to chew, so this is what we like. I bake it very thin, I use my rectangle pizza pan or you could use a jelly roll pan.
I lift it up with a spatula, crumble in the bowl and pour milk over top, and nut, raisins, whatever. I don't add any extra sugar. You could eat it plan but it does crumble a bit. The original recipe says to bake it in a 9x13 pan, which I am guessing would be easier to cut it and eat it that way. You can play around with the recipe. I use half the sugar and instead of butter use half the amount in oil. Sometimes I put in a banana or applesauce in place of some of the oil. I did find out that quick oats are better for little ones, the old fashion tend to be too chewy. Enjoy!!

1c. brown sugar
