Thanks to whoever posted it! It's going to become our new favorite breakfast, I'm sure.
This is what I copied from the original post:
Not crockpot, but have you tried baked oatmeal? It is freakin GOOD!! It is not mushy at all, more like a cake texture.
1/2 cup applesauce (or veggie oil)
3/4 cup sweetner of your choice (sugar, Splenda, whatever)
1 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon baking powder
3 cups regular oats
1/2 cup raisins
1-2 tablespoons brown sugar (I personally use the brown sugar splenda)
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Beat together applesauce and sweetner of choice. Mix in eggs, milk, salt, baking powder, oatmeal. Beat well then stir in raisins. Pour into a lightly grease pie pan. Sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon. Refrigerate overnight.
The next morning, preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Bake in preheated oven until firm, about 35 minutes. Serve hot.
I like mine served with milk and a drizzle of honey over the top!!
Can I use anything other than apple sauce or veg oil. I would hate to put 1/2 cup vegetable oil in there but I don't have any apple sauce. Maybe a mashed banana?????
4-5 cups oatmeal (soaked overnight in about 1-2 cups yogurt or kefir, plus 1-2 cups warmish water)
1 cup sweetner of choice (can use less)
3/4 cup oil (can use less)
1-2 cups milk
2 tsp. vanilla (optional)
1 TB cinnamon
1 TB baking powder
1-2 cups fresh, frozen, or dried fruit, such as blueberries, strawberries, cherries, raisins, cranberries, rhubarb, etc.
1. Soak oatmeal overnight in yogurt or kefir. In the morning, preheat oven to 350F.
2. Combine eggs, sugar, oil, vanilla, cinnamon and baking powder. Mix well. Add milk (start with the smaller amount, and adjust to get the consistency you like), and mix again. Add fruit, and mix again.
3. Add oatmeal to egg mixture, and mix well.
4. Pour mixture into a 9" X 13" pan. Bake at 350F for about 1 hr., or until set. You can bake it on a lower temp. for longer, or a higher temp. for less time, if necessary. I've done it both ways.
5. Serve warm with yogurt, cream, milk, or applesauce. Very good cold, or reheated.
The amounts I've listed are flexible. I usually just do this pretty free-form, so it's never really quite the same. It's always very good, though. Feel free to experiment. It comes out quite custardy, and sooo yummy! I just made it for a friend with a new baby.
6 C oats
1/2 C oil
3/4 C sugar (it originally called for 1 3/4 C but i cut it down)
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 C milk
Mix all ingredients together. Bake in 9 X 13 inch pan for 30 mins (usually takes more than that) at
Keeps in the refrigerator 7-10 days (mine didn't last that long!!).
It freezes well.

Do you have to overnight it or can you bake it asap? I'm too tired to go mix it now but would love to try it tomorrow for breakfast. I think my girls would love it! How big is a serving?
Mama to 9 so far:Mother of Joey (20), Dominick (13), Abigail (11), Angelo (8), Mylee (6), Delainey (3), Colton (2) and Baby 8 and Baby 9 coming sometime in July 2013. If evolution were true, mothers would have three arms!
Oh, and I like to put chopped apples in it, too. Just depends on what I have in the freezer, dried, or fresh.
