A while back, on the "cheap food for college students" thread, someone posted a recipe for baked oatmeal. I made it, and it was good. But then I started to think about the fact that the recipe had an entire cup of sugar and half a cup of oil in it. Since I'd been dividing it into 4 servings, that meant I was eating a quarter cup of sugar and 2 T oil each time. Ick.

So I made a couple modifications:
Lighter Baked Oatmeal:
3 cups oats
2 t baking powder
1 t salt
1/4 cup sugar
1 t cinnamon (this is also a new addition)

Mix and add
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup oil
1/2 cup applesauce
1 cup milk (I use soy)
1/4 cup raisins

Pour into 9x9 pan
Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.

Then, the other day, I had bananas that were too soft to eat. So,
Banana Nut baked oatmeal
3 cups oats
2 t baking powder
1 t salt
1 t cinnamon
Mix and add
2 bananas, mashed
3/4 cup milk
2 eggs, beaten
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup walnuts

Pour into 9x9 pan
Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.

This is not very sweet, but sugar can be added. This is even healthier than my first version because you get half a serving of fruit per serving. No added fat (except the walnuts), and no added sugar!

Now I can feel good about eating baked oatmeal. This is great since it will really keep you going until lunch. I eat the first quarter the day I make it, then put the rest in the fridge and heat for a couple minutes in the microwave.

I'm not much of an oatmeal fan (in fact, I can barely say "oatmeal" without immediately adding "ew") but the banana-nut version sounds really good.  I'd like to leave out the eggs or figure out a substitute because I almost never have eggs around -- any thoughts/ideas?

I think vegans use flaxseed ground up and mixed with water, but I'm not sure about proportions, method, etc.

These taste kind of like Quaker breakfast squares. I like to heat them up and add maple syrup on top, but jelly is also a good topping. Let me know how the egg-substitute thing works out. Then I'd have a breakfast option I could serve vegans (if I ever had to feed vegans, but whatever.)

Will do!  I've done a bunch of different egg substitutions in the past (including flaxseed  Wink) and actually, now that I think about it, one of them somehow involves mashed bananas.  I'll look it up and probably try it this weekend.  Thanks again for posting!  (It's a longtime quest of mine to learn to like oatmeal...)

Does it become portable? I mean, I LOVE oatmeal for breakfast, but I usually have to eat breakfast on the go (usually while i drive to work or school) and oatmeal just doesn't work in the car! Would this be something I could eat in the car? (even if it isn't, i'm still gonna try it for a desert or something)

It's a little crumbly. I'd say make it and see. I've stuck a square of it in a plastic box and warmed it up at the office.

I made a batch. Dee-lish!! My boyfriend even liked it, and he is such a picky eater! It was a little crumbly, but i could def. eat it if the boy was driving (probably too messy to try to eat if I was driving. I didn't risk it.) I will def. make this again. (with more raisins next time, per the boy's request.)
