Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal

We've been having baked oatmeal fairly often lately, but this is the first time I've branched off from existing recipes. It was fantastic! Almost like a coffe cake that you pour milk over and eat with a spoon. :)  nightskyre was thrilled, since it's less than 450 calories per serving. Not bad for a sweet and hearty breakfast!

  • 4 cups old fashioned oats

  • 3/4 cup brown sugar, divided

  • 1 cup milk

  • 1 tablespoons butter

  • 2 eggs

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • 3/4 teaspoon salt

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice

  • 1/2 cup natural applesauce

  • 2 apples, diced

In a large bowl mix together all ingredients except for ¼ cup of the brown sugar.
Spread into a greased 9×13 pan. (You can store in the fridge overnight at this point)
Sprinkle remaining ¼ cup brown sugar on top just before baking.
Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes.

Serves 6.
