Baked oatmeal's great to have around right now. A piece can easily be eaten one-handed (i.e. while the other hand is busy holding Ellie, which it usually is in the morning). And oatmeal is a galactagogue so with my voracious little munchkin, I figure it can't hurt. :)
Sometimes I throw in some extra cinnamon, or another spice like cardamom or nutmeg.
I Love Baked Oatmeal
3 cups rolled oats
1 2/3 cups whole milk
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1 cup applesauce
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 large ripe banana, chopped
1) Stir together oats, milk, yogurt, and applesauce in mixing bowl. Cover with a clean towel and let sit on counter for 10-24 hours.
2) Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9x9 square pan.
3) Add eggs to oat mixture and whisk briskly until smooth. Stir in remaining ingredients.
4) Pour into pan and bake for 40-50 minutes, until firm and golden. Serve warm with milk or yogurt, or let cool and cut into bars to eat at room temperature. Refrigerate if you will have it around for more than 2 or 3 days.
