Baked Oatmeal

This is the baked oatmeal dish mentioned in yesterday’s post….it has become one of my “staples”. Enjoy!

Baked Oatmeal

 from The Simply Gourmet Diabetes Cookbook

Makes 8 servings

“For oatmeal fans who want more protein in their breakfast, adding milk and egg white does the trick, making it somewhat like bread pudding. Since baked oatmeal keeps for several days in the refrigerator, you can make a batch on the weekend and reheat it during the week when you want a quick breakfast.”  Carolyn’s comment: it’s great!

Vegetable oil cooking spray

2 ¼ cps quick oats or 2 ¾ cps old fashioned rolled oats

½ cp firmly packed brown sugar

1 tsp ground cinnamon

½ tsp sale (optional)

3 1/3 cps skim milk

4 egg whites, slightly beaten, or ½ cp egg substitute

1 TBS vegetable oil

1 TBS vanilla
