Baked Oatmeal To Go!

2 1/2 cups Old Fashioned Oats (uncooked) *can use quick
½ cup brown sugar, packed
½ cup craisins
1/4 cup walnuts, chopped
1 tsp. baking powder
1 ½ cups milk
½ cup unsweetened applesauce
2 tbsp. butter, melted
1 large egg, lightly beaten

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  

Spray muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.

Combine oats, brown sugar, craisins, walnuts, and baking powder in a medium bowl.  Stir.

Combine milk, applesauce, butter, and egg in a small bowl and stir.  

Add milk mixture to the oat mixture and stir to combine. (I like to let it set for a few minutes to thicken the milk mixture)

Fill muffin tins to the top, as mixture doesn’t rise much. 

Bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean and edges are brown.

Allow to cool for 10 minutes then use a butter knife to loosen edges before removing from muffin tin.

Store in refrigerator for up to a week.  To re-heat microwave for 1 minute.

Note:  You can make 12 small muffins or use a larger muffin tin and make 6.
