Last year i discovered baked oatmeal (and that's kinda sad b/c it's a common dish in my area) which is great b/c even tho i trained myself to like oatmeal i'm still not a big fan of its texture. I've been making many different flavors of baked oatmeal but i've still stuck to the same basic recipe so does anyone have any delicious breakfast bake, bar, etc recipes to share?

Here's what i've been making. I'm not a great cook and my taste buds are a bit weird so take that into consideration if you want to follow any of my recipes. I welcome any suggestions for improvement.<br><a href="http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Baked-Oatmeal-II/Detail.aspx" target="_blank">This</a> is the recipe that inspired me. I veganized it and left out the sugar. Between all the sugar form the OJ, craisins, and applesauce the cranberry orange recipe is really sweet, i think, but the other recipes might not be sweet enough for some people. I used vinegar* and baking soda* to make it rise a bit; i have no idea how much to use but the recipe seems to work; the baking soda also reacts with the vanilla and applesauce (and the OJ, which is why there's no vinegar in that recipe). I usually add protein powders, 6 T brown rice and 3 T pea, with the dry ingredients.<br><br><br><b>Baked Oatmeal Recipes<br>
Cranberry Orange</b><br>
3 cups rolled oats<br>
2 teaspoons baking powder<br>
2 teaspoons baking soda*<br>
1 cup orange juice<br>
3/4 cup apple sauce<br>
1/4 cup oil<br>
2 teaspoons vanilla extract<br>
1 cup dried cranberries/craisins (i soak the craisins in an additional 1/4 cup of OJ because otherwise i find them to be too dry)<br>
(walnuts and/or orange zest (especial if the extra OJ's not used) would probably make a nice addition)<br><br><b>Cinnamon Raisin</b><br>
3 cups rolled oats<br>
2 teaspoons baking powder<br>
2 teaspoons baking soda*<br>
2 teaspoons cinnamon<br>
1 cup water or non-dairy milk<br>
1 tablespoon vinegar*<br>
3/4 cup apple sauce<br>
1/4 cup oil<br>
2 teaspoons vanilla extract<br>
1 cup raisins<br><br><b>Cinnamon Apple</b><br>
3 cups rolled oats<br>
2 teaspoons baking powder<br>
2 teaspoons baking soda*<br>
2 teaspoons cinnamon<br>
1 cup apple cider, apple juice, water, or non-dairy milk<br>
1 tablespoon vinegar*<br>
3/4 cup apple sauce<br>
1/4 cup oil<br>
2 teaspoons vanilla extract<br>
1 cup chopped apple<br><br><b>Banana Nut</b><br>
3 cups rolled oats<br>
2 teaspoons baking powder<br>
2 teaspoons baking soda*<br>
1 cup water or non-dairy milk<br>
1 tablespoon vinegar*<br>
3 bananas, mashed<br>
1/4 cup oil<br>
2 teaspoons vanilla extract<br>
1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans<br>
(some sweet spices would probably be good)<br><br><b>Chocolate Chip</b><br>
3 cups rolled oats<br>
2 teaspoons baking powder<br>
2 teaspoons baking soda*<br>
1 cup water or non-dairy milk<br>
1 tablespoon vinegar*<br>
3/4 cup apple sauce<br>
1/4 cup oil<br>
2 teaspoons vanilla extract<br>
1 cup chocolate chips<br><br><br>
1. Preheat oven to 350º F (175º C)<br>
2. In a large mixing bowl, mix together oats, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon (if used). Mix in liquid, vinegar (if used), applesauce/bananas, oil, and vanilla extract. Stir in fruit, nuts, or chocolate chips. Spread into a 9x13 inch baking dish.<br>
3. Bake 30 (if you want it really moist) to 45 (if you're like me and want it well-done) minutes.<br>
Makes 6-8 servings<br><br>
It's common to pour (non-dairy) milk over the baked oatmeal but i don't like how mushy that makes it so i just eat it as a bar.

so you're really making granola bars then? REgular oatmeal is usually just cooked on the stovetop or in the microwave, with about twice as much liquid as the oatmeal. That's how I make it (a wet oatmeal)<br><br>
Here is a no added fat granola that tastes good too that I use. <a href="http://redmangos.blogspot.com/2011/03/crunchy-granola.html" target="_blank">http://redmangos.blogspot.com/2011/0...y-granola.html</a>

I don't think so; it's not crunchy, it's more similar to the cereal part of Nutri-grain or Kashi fruit filled cereal bars than granola.<br><br>
That recipe looks good, too bad granola's tough on my mouth. For me regular oatmeal is too wet and soft and granola is to dry and hard- baked oatmeal is just right. Now i'm gonna watch out for bears.

I'd like to personally thank faded_amaranth for the recipes. I tried the Cinnamon raisin one this morning, and they were SO GOOD!!! I tend to eat in smaller portions so was able to get at least 15 small portions that I can freeze, and take on the road with me as a healthy snack. Now if only I can get the kids to eat my ultra healthy foods, I'd be happy (they are junk food junkies, but do like my baking, if they don't know that it's healthy). Can't wait to try the other recipes out. Thanks again for the great recipes!!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/broccoli.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":bobo:"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/broccoli.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":bobo:">

I've just recently fallen in love with soaked oats. You just take regular rolled oats and soak them overnight in milk. I add dried fruit and nuts and cinnamon and maple syrup. It's great for summer! It doesn't get gloopy like oatmeal (which I like hot! not cold), and the oats have a really hardy chewy texture that I enjoy.

This is my favorite Oatmeal recipe ( I actually like it raw)<br><br>
Almond Delight:<br>
6 cups regular rolled oats<br>
1-2 cups raisins (Can use 1 cup of the regular and then 1 cup white raisins)<br>
1 cup chopped dates<br>
2 cups coarsely chopped almonds<br>
1/2 cup sunflower seads<br>
1 cup small or medium flake unsweetened coconut<br>
1 Tblsp. Cinnamon<br><br>
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and store in an airtight container.<br><br>
Serve with a small amount of pure maple syrup and nut milk.<br><br>
One batch usually last me about a week, so it's really pretty inexpensive
