I've been a believer in oatmeal bakes ever since I made this recipe. Recently, I've been flirting with the idea of eliminating dairy products from my diet so when I saw this recipe here I figured I could make it vegan really easily. I eliminated the butter from the recipe and substituted almond milk for regular milk....and it is SO good. The recipe makes a lot and it is so hearty. So far we have had it for breakfast two times and I'm thinking we'll be able to have it at least two more times!
Here is what you need:
4 cups almond milk
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 cups old-fashioned oats
2 cups peeled and chopped apples
1/2 cup walnuts
1 cup dried cranberries
What you need to do:
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
2. In a large saucepan over medium heat, combine the milk, brown sugar, salt, and cinnamon.
3. Stir occasionally until the mixture is well combined then stir in the remaining ingredients.
4. In a lightly sprayed 2-quart casserole dish, pour the oatmeal into the casserole dish, cover, and bake for 45 minutes.
