Well now fall is in the air. It was a brisk 52 degrees this morning. And it surely made you want to get up and get going. We had so much heat to deal with this summer that we somehow thought the cool air would never return. But it seems that some things never change, as the lord knows just what we need and when we need it.
And this morning I must say I did a bit of that myself. I knew it was cool outside and that we needed something warm in our tummy's to get us going. So I pulled out a recipe that we enjoy and have not had since the hot weather had arrived. A real comfort food indeed!
This called Baked Oatmeal and let me tell you it is divine. It is soft and gooey on
on the inside and a cookie bakes on top. You can tweak this recipe to suit your
tastes by adding any fruit or nut combo you would like.
1/3 cup regular oats
1/4 tsp. baking powder
2 T. cookie butter or Biscoff Spread
1/3 c.milk or cream
1 egg white
1/4 tsp. vanilla
Take a small one serving size oven proof dish and coat with a small amount of oil. Measure all ingredients into bowl and mix well. You can stir in fruit or nuts to your liking at this time. I have used peaches, blueberries, apples and raisins. I have also added walnut, pecans and almonds. I have used almond and maple flavoring instead of vanilla. So work with this recipe and make it your own! Bake in a 350* oven for 20 minutes or until it is puffed and set.
