  1. I doubled and put in a 13x9 pan. Used half applesauce and half butter plus 1/2 cup of raisins. Baked for 45 minutes. Thank you for the recipe, Josh. It is fabulous and my boys adore it!
  2. This is my favorite recipe and I change it up every time depending on what's in the fridge. Today I added a cup of applesauce and cut the butter to 1T and the milk in half. I also cut the brown sugar in half and didn't miss it. I added apple and banana as well - Read more ...
  3. Alright: I have made several baked oatmeals from Allrecipes and up until this one, the one with blueberries was a hit in our home. We just had this for breakfast this morning. I made it with a few common changes in baking: replaced half the butter with applesauce. Lowered the brown sugar to about 1/2 - Read more ...
  4. I will be giving this one another try! I think I cooked it too long bc it more so turned out as a oatmeal loaf rather than being a creamy yet thick oatmeal like i was expecting. The flavor was still good and went well with out breakfast supper we had.
  5. My family loves this recipe! I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out great. Since then I have added my own twist. When I have over ripe bananas is when I make this oatmeal the most, better than banana bread. :). I add 1/2 c stevia and 1/4 c coconut sugar instead of brown - Read more ...
  6. I make this often and for groups as large as 30. A few tips, use applesauce in place of butter and egg whites in place of whole to reduce fat. I also add diced granny smith along with the cranberries and sometimes add pecans. Go either/or on the brown sugar/maple syrup, can make it too - Read more ...
  7. The family pronounced it delicious, so this recipe is a keeper. I decreased the sugar to 1/2 cup. I love the addition of the maple syrup! You really have to get all natural maple syrup that actually came from the tree. Makes a world of difference. I added wheat germ to get some nutrients in - Read more ...
  8. This is a very nice oatmeal prep. My husband described it as an oatmeal cookie in a bowl with milk:) The next time I would cut the sugar and salt in half but otherwise very tasty and an easy make ahead breakfast. Thanks for sharing.
  9. Delicious! We used apples instead of cranberries but I think both would have been nice or a tart apple. We also skipped the maple syrup and found that the oatmeal was the perfect amount of sweet.
  10. Instead of cranberries, I used raisins. I also increased the amount to a heaping half cup as we REALLY like raisins. This is seriously decadent--like eating dessert for breakfast. EXTREMELY rich. I poured a touch of cold milk over the top of each serving which cut the sweetness a bit. We absolutely LOVED this. NO - Read more ...
