Baked Strawberry Oatmeal

I’ve been craving baked oatmeal and I had some luscious looking strawberries waiting to be used.  It was time for more fruit baked oatmeal!  I love the way it can be eaten warm or cold, whatever I’m in the mood for.  I really prefer to eat my baked oatmeal cold because it’s more like a crispy oatmeal cookie with milk.

I measured my oats and cut up the berries into quarters since they were large berries.

I mixed the eggs, applesauce, oil, sugar and milk together in a separate measuring bowl.

I whisked together the whole wheat flour, baking powder and salt in a separate bowl then stirred in the oats and berries.  Finally I stirred the wet ingredients into the dry and pour them into my sprayed 9×13-in baking pan.

I baked this oatmeal a little longer, about 40 minutes, for a little extra brown crispiness around the edges.  I wanted even more of a cookie feeling this time.

It looked and smelled heavenly!  I scooped some warm oatmeal into a dessert dish and added a little soy milk and had a midnight snack.  I couldn’t wait until morning to eat this deliciousness!

I’ve never been a big oatmeal fan but the baked varieties have me hooked.  Summer or winter, they’re great to have on hand for delicious bowls of goodness.
