I think I made baked oatmeal

by Molly Sams

So lately my mom has been making these amazing muffins that are chock full of oatmeal, fruit, and plenty of healthy yummy goodness to start your day. I love having one of these when I stop by the hill (as well as the rest of her food) and I decided to try to make them myself.

So the first thing I realized was that I lacked a muffin tin. I thought, "well I could go out to the grocery store, spend money, and come home only to still need to bake or I could improvise!" So I did. I got my purple pyrex casserole dish out, plenty covered it in butter and got to mixing the ingredients.

My new A Team

First I mixed the dry stuff:

3 c oatmeal
1 c brown sugar, packed
1 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
1 T ground cinnamon
1/4 c dried cherries
1/4 c dried cranberries
1/2 c dried blueberries

Then the not-so-dry:

2 eggs
1/2 c olive oil
1 banana
1 1/2 c milk
2 T vanilla extract

Slimy yet satisfying.

After that I poured the soupy mix into the casserole dish. Preheated the oven to 350 Fahrenheit and let it bake for about 45 minutes (give or take time to sample.)

And holy shizsnacks, gang! I love it! I stress you properly mix the wet stuff separately and be sure to mash the banana to a pulp but seriously - it was so moist and delicious I had to try a bite right away. It was best mixed with a splash of milk and I cannot wait to try it with coffee on the side tomorrow.
