Raisin Pecan Baked Oatmeal

6-8 servings

My kids love this! It tastes like a cross between granola and a muffin and you eat it crumbled in a bowl with milk. In addition to reducing the sugar and the fat, and changing the butter to oil, I adapted it for the microwave so it’s fast enough to eat on busy school mornings, especially if you mix the wet and dry ingredients in separate bowls the night before and combine just before cooking.
¼ c. oil
½ c. honey or sugar
2 eggs
1 t. vanilla
3 c. oats (regular or quick)
2 t. baking powder
1 t. salt
½ t. cinnamon
1 c. milk
½ c. raisins
½ c. chopped pecans

Mix all ingredients in a microwaveable bowl until well combined. Cover and microwave on high for 3 minutes. Stir. Cook on half power for 4-5 minutes or until oats are tender and mixture becomes drier. Spoon into bowls and serve warm with additional milk.

If you prefer, you can bake it in the oven for 25-30 minutes in a greased 13x9 pan.

Note: add more sugar if it's not sweet enough for you--the original recipe called for 1 c. sugar but I like to cut back as much as possible. I often only use 1/4 c.
