When You Want Your House to Smell Really Good Baked Oatmeal!

Baked-Oatmeal-with-Apples-and-Raisins

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats (not instant)
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 cup pecans, divided
  • 1/2 cup raisins (I didn’t include raisins.  It was still delicious.)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, plus more for greasing the dish
  • 2 tart yet sweet baking apples, such as Honey Crisp, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch chunks (about 2 cups)

PREPARATION INSTRUCTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 325°F. Grease an 8 or 9-inch baking dish with butter.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the oats, brown sugar, 1/2 cup of the nuts, raisins, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Mix well.
  • In another bowl, break up the eggs with a whisk; then whisk in the milk and vanilla until well combined.
  • Add the milk mixture to the oat mixture, along with the melted butter.
  • Scatter the apples evenly on the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Pour the oatmeal mixture over top and spread evenly. Sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup nuts on top. Bake for 40-45 minutes, until the top is golden and the oats are set. Serve warm or at room temperature.
