pure goodness = baked oatmeal.



so you dont want bread.
but you want something bready.
but you dont want pudding.
but you want it oatmeal-y.
but you dont want smushy oatmeal.
but you dont want granola-y oatmeal.
but it you arent sure if you want it warm or cold.

i know what you want!!!!

BAKED OATMEAL!!!

mmm you can eat it hot with milk on top, or cold like bread, or warm like a muffin, or even toasted with butter (toast under a broiler though)... this is the amazingly versatile food that fulfills any breakfast craving. you can put in any fruit, nuts, even bacon if you want! And you can season it just like anything else! You could make it cinnamon, or brown sugar and maple, or banana chocolate, or apple peanut butter... im telling you... this. is. pure. awesomeness.

And the even awesomer part, is that the recipe is basically the way you make oatmeal.
All i did was pour some oats, brown sugar, sliced peaches & apples in a bowl. Then i combined some rice milk (you can use regular or soy milk for that matter... even water) and vanilla extract (some times i add almond or maple extract) it should be semi liquidy but not as liquidy as when you make smooshy oatmeal. ... and then bake at 350ยบ until firm! Voila.

Eat it warm or cold with milk. or eat it like bread. or with a spoon. or with honey. or with peanut butter. or put on some bacon and syrup...

im telling you.

this is fabulousness to the extreme.
