Hi everyone. I am new to the group, and have a recipe I wanted to share. My husband and I participate in the Daniel Fast every January with our prayer group and you can only pretty much have fruits, vegetables and whole grains. As such, I am always hard pressed to find things for breakfast. We are allowed to have oatmeal on the fast, but I don't like the texture of oatmeal. Well, I found a recipe for baked oatmeal and decided to try it. My husband absolutely loved it and so did I. When it finishes baking, it has the consistency of bread pudding.
1 and 1/2 cups of rolled oats 1/4 cup of apples (the original recipe called for apricots, which I don't like) 1/4 cup of raisins 1/4 cup of pecans or walnuts 1/2 tsp of cinnamon a dash of salt 1/2 cup of unsweetened applesauce 1 and 1/2 cup of unsweetened almond milk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine all ingredients and transfer to a baking dish lightly coated with olive oil. Bake for 55-60 minutes or until slightly crispy on top.
Once the Fast is over, I will probably add a little sugar to the recipe, but not much. It make a great grab-and-go breakfast.
