When the Winter winds are blowing or the snow outside is dumping (as it is here), it is time for some Baked Oatmeal.

I love any recipe I can stir up the night before and pop in the oven the next morning and Baked Oatmeal fits the bill. It is a very forgiving and adaptable recipe and you don’t have to stand around and stir the pot to make sure the oatmeal doesn’t burn. Enjoy!

3 cups of rolled oats
2 cups milk (dairy, nut or coconut milk)
1 Tbs. vinegar, lemon juice, or yogurt (the acid helps break down enzymes…if you can presoak these three ingredients for several hours it helps with digestion).

Add in
1/2 cup of butter or coconut oil
2 eggs
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 Tbsp. brown sugar
spices to taste; Cinnamon, nutmeg, chopped fruit etc.)

Pour into a 9×13 greased pan. Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes. Serve with maple syrup, honey or any sweetener.
