Absolutely delicious! No wheat, no flour, very little sugar. We used olive oil instead of canola oil and we add chopped apples or raisins. We added a bit more brown sugar. Very healthy, moist and easy to fix! A keeper for this health conscious family!

Baked oatmeal is a favorite in my family. However, as other reviewers have discovered, this recipe needs a lot of adjusting due to dryness and no flavor. Here are my adjustments: 3 cups quick cooking oats, 1/4 cup white sugar, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 2 tsps baking powder, 1/2 tsp salt, 3 tsps cinnamon, 1/4 tsp cloves, 2 eggs, 1/4 cup melted butter, 1/2 cup applesauce, 1 cups milk, 3/4 cup raisins or craisins and 1/2 cup chopped pecans or sliced almonds. I bake it in a greased 9x13 at 350 for 25 minutes. I let it cool, then cut in 12 servings. The texture and taste is like a soft oatmeal raisin cookie. It's good cold or warmed up with milk on it. I've done a lot of testing to get a good baked oatmeal recipe. We really like this "adjusted" recipe. Try it and see what you think.

I have been eating oatmeal for breakfast daily. I wanted to try this as an easy way to make a lot ahead of time. It sure does make a lot!! As with the previous reviewer I used almonds instead of walnuts. I also sprinkled cinnamon on top for extra flavor. The texture of this is much more dense and chewy than a bowl of oatmeal. I have been heating up in the microwave with milk. With the warm milk it reminds me of Indian pudding, an old settler recipe which I used to love as a child.

I make this every time I need to feed breakfast to a crew. I add 3 apples, coarsely chopped, and a bunch of cinnamon, some nutmeg, and a pinch of ground cloves. Everyone loves it, and I will continue to make it again and again.

This was really good and very moist! I liked it because it was not too sweet. Don't expect it to be sugary and sweet, it's not. It has a very mild, subtle flavor. I will make again!

I added extra milk and apple chunks to this and it was still pretty dry. I also added some cinnamon and allspice to give the flavor a kick but it still needed a bit more. It would have been good drenched in maple syrup but I didn't want the extra sugar. I think I will continue to play with this adding more egg and less oatmeal a bit more brown sugar and spices maybe adding a bit of nutmeg and cardamom too.

My husband and I really liked this. We made a few adjustments based on other reviews: doubled brown sugar and added apple chunks. Only had chopped almonds on had, which worked just as well. Didn't think was dry-think it is supposed to be kind of crumbly. Served with warm honey on top with a sprinkle of powdered sugar. Will definately make again-was great with morning coffee-yum! Will try different fruits...banana next?

Easy to make. Love the no flour. Very flexible as to type and amount of sweetening. AND.. best of all...makes oatmeal a do-able breakfast for me because a regular bowl of oatmeal leaves me hungry all day. This has very good flavor and texture and doesn't leave me looking for the next thing to eat all day long. I followed some of the suggestions ie; adding apple sauce, cloves, cinnamon, and kept in the vanilla from the original recipe. The whole family enjoyed it for breakfast this morning.
