Amish Baked Oatmeal

Original Recipe here.

So good on a cold morning! This serves about 6.

Converted to fit our needs below... ;)

1/3 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk alternative (I've used both soy and almond with good results)
2 tablespoons milk alternative
3 cups oatmeal (regular or quick)

Melt coconut oil.

Grease 1 1/2 quart baking dish and add applesauce. Add brown sugar, baking powder, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt. Mix well, no lumps.

Whisk in coconut oil and both measures of milk alternative, then add oats. (The coconut oil will start solidifying again and that's fine.)

Stir well, and refrigerate OVERNIGHT.

Bake, uncovered, at 350 for 35-45 min, or until set in the middle.

Serve hot with warm milk alternative poured over. (My boys also like a little extra brown sugar sprinkled on top.)

To reheat, just put in the oven again at 350 until desired warmth.
