Here is a breakfast casserole that’s a bit different from all the others. Baked oatmeal is a delicious way to start a day.

This is a recipe that will quickly become a family favorite. It’s an absolutely delicious way to eat oatmeal, and an easy recipe to make for your family or guests. The combination of apples, cinnamon, and brown sugar gives the oatmeal a wonderful taste.
Oatmeal is a healthy food. The fiber in oats is even better for you than wheat fiber, and helps to lower cholesterol. In addition, it’s packed with vitamins, minerals, and protein, including iron, a bit of calcium and folate (an important and necessary vitamin, necessary for a healthy brain, red cell production, helping with depression, etc.) Add to the health benefits of oatmeal the fiber and vitamins from the raisins and apples, and baked oatmeal becomes a healthy way to start the day.
Here’s your perfect weekend breakfast or the way your kids will eat their oatmeal. It is absolutely delicious!
