Fruity Baked Oatmeal

 I have wanted to try making baked oatmeal for a while now. This recipe from Taste of Home, caught my eye because it looked so easy.  When I'm making breakfast on a weekday, I'm always looking for something easy.  This was really good, but as suggested in the comments of the recipe, I used a lot less brown sugar (I think only about a 1/2 a cup) and used more fruit than listed.  I used frozen strawberries instead of an apple, because, to be honest, it was easier than peeling and chopping an apple at 5 in the morning.  I also added some ground flax seed for some extra goodness.  This was also great reheated in the microwave for the next couple breakfasts.

NOTE:  I have a banana in this picture, not sure why, I used Blueberries, not a banana.

Fruity Baked Oatmeal
From: Taste of Home

3 cups quick-cooking oats
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup fat-free milk
1/2 cup butter, melted
3/4 cup chopped peeled tart apple or frozen strawberries
1/3 cup chopped fresh or frozen peaches
1/3 cup fresh or frozen blueberries

1. In a large bowl, combine the oats, brown sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon Add 1-2 Tbsp ground flax seed if desired.

2. Combine the eggs, milk and butter; add to the dry ingredients.  Stir in fruit. (I defrosted the peaches and strawberries, but did not thaw the blueberries).

3. Pour into an 8 in. square baking dish coated with cooking spray.  Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.  Cut into squares and serve with milk.
