Absolutely delicious! No wheat no flour very little sugar. We used olive oil instead of canola oil and we add chopped apples or raisins. We added a bit more brown sugar. Very healthy moist and easy to fix! A keeper for this health conscious family! Read More

Baked oatmeal is a favorite in my family. However as other reviewers have discovered this recipe needs a lot of adjusting due to dryness and no flavor. Here are my adjustments: 3 cups quick cooking oats 1/4 cup white sugar 1/2 cup brown sugar 2 tsps baking powder 1/2 tsp salt 3 tsps cinnamon 1/4 tsp cloves 2 eggs 1/4 cup melted butter 1/2 cup applesauce 1 cups milk 3/4 cup raisins or craisins and 1/2 cup chopped pecans or sliced almonds. I bake it in a greased 9x13 at 350 for 25 minutes. I let it cool then cut in 12 servings. The texture and taste is like a soft oatmeal raisin cookie. It's good cold or warmed up with milk on it. I've done a lot of testing to get a good baked oatmeal recipe. We really like this "adjusted" recipe. Try it and see what you think. Read More

I have been eating oatmeal for breakfast daily. I wanted to try this as an easy way to make a lot ahead of time. It sure does make a lot!! As with the previous reviewer I used almonds instead of walnuts. I also sprinkled cinnamon on top for extra flavor. The texture of this is much more dense and chewy than a bowl of oatmeal. I have been heating up in the microwave with milk. With the warm milk it reminds me of Indian pudding an old settler recipe which I used to love as a child. Read More

I added extra milk and apple chunks to this and it was still pretty dry. I also added some cinnamon and allspice to give the flavor a kick but it still needed a bit more. It would have been good drenched in maple syrup but I didn't want the extra sugar. I think I will continue to play with this adding more egg and less oatmeal a bit more brown sugar and spices maybe adding a bit of nutmeg and cardamom too. Read More

This was really good and very moist! I liked it because it was not too sweet. Don't expect it to be sugary and sweet it's not. It has a very mild subtle flavor. I will make again! Read More

I make this every time I need to feed breakfast to a crew. I add 3 apples coarsely chopped and a bunch of cinnamon some nutmeg and a pinch of ground cloves. Everyone loves it and I will continue to make it again and again. Read More

My husband and I really liked this. We made a few adjustments based on other reviews: doubled brown sugar and added apple chunks. Only had chopped almonds on had which worked just as well. Didn't think was dry-think it is supposed to be kind of crumbly. Served with warm honey on top with a sprinkle of powdered sugar. Will definately make again-was great with morning coffee-yum! Will try different fruits...banana next? Read More

Easy to make. Love the no flour. Very flexible as to type and amount of sweetening. AND.. best of all...makes oatmeal a do-able breakfast for me because a regular bowl of oatmeal leaves me hungry all day. This has very good flavor and texture and doesn't leave me looking for the next thing to eat all day long. I followed some of the suggestions ie; adding apple sauce cloves cinnamon and kept in the vanilla from the original recipe. The whole family enjoyed it for breakfast this morning. Read More

I really didn't care for it. I looked forward to making it b/c it sounded good but it was disappointing. The texture was too coarse and it tasted too eggy. Other than the abundance of eggy taste there wasn't much other flavor. Maybe it would be better if you poured cream and/or maple syrup over it? I'll give it another try but I'm going to have to tinker with the recipe a while. Read More
