We always manage to get pounds and pounds of apples when we go apple picking...often more than we know what to do with. This year I told myself I would try out a few new recipes other than the standard apple pie and apple bread. This baked apple oatmeal was the first one I tried, and I automatically ruled it a success. Since the weather is getting a little chilly, it's nice to wake up in the morning and have a warm bowl of oatmeal with crunchy apples. Enjoy!
Oh, and just for giggles...here are some pictures of us doing the Limbo. We're not very talented:
- 2 2/3 cups old-fashioned oats
- 1/2 cup raisins
- 4 cups milk
- 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
- 2 tbsp. butter or margarine, melted
- 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 2 medium apples, chopped (about 2 cups)
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, if desired
- Additional milk, if desired
Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
In 2-quart casserole, mix oats, raisins, 4 cups milk, the brown sugar, butter, cinnamon, salt and apples.
Bake uncovered 40 to 45 minutes or until most liquid is absorbed. Top with walnuts. Serve with additional milk.
