Baked Oatmeal

This is a very simple recipe that can easily be adjusted to fit your tastes. I added a teaspoon of peanut butter to my portion and it was delicious.

2 cups uncooked quick-cooking oats
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup dried fruit (I used cranberries.)
1 tablespoon chopped nuts (I used almonds.)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 cups fat-free milk
1/2 cup applesauce
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 large egg, beaten
Cooking spray

Preheat oven to 375°.

Combine the first 5 ingredients in a medium bowl. Combine the milk, applesauce, butter, and egg. Add milk mixture to oat mixture; stir well. Pour oat mixture into an 8-inch square baking dish coated with cooking spray.

Bake at 375° for 20 minutes. Serve warm.
