Baked Oatmeal With Raisins
Easy and delicious, hearty, and healthy -- what a wonderful way to start a morning. We love this, especially after chilly mornings after coming in from doing our barn chores. Enjoy !
1 1/2 cups oats (quick oats work best)
1/4 cup wheat germ
1/4 cup golden flaxseed (or substitute cornmeal or grain of your choice)
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
1 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2-1 cup raisins (optional - other dried or even frozen fruit could be used)
** Warm milk and fresh fruit for topping (optional)
Combine ingredients well.
Spread mixture in greased 9x13 baking dish.
Bake for 25-30 minutes at 350 degrees, or until edges are golden brown and top if "crusty".
When finished baking, spoon into bowls immediately.
Top with warm milk and fresh fruit if desired.
