Great to make ahead for a crowd—or make half the recipe, as this serves 8-10 people. I like to leave out the sugar, and let folks spoon up as much as they want from the pan before adding the sweetener of their choice: honey, maple syrup, sugar, or artificial sweeteners work well. Have extra milk on the table.
2- 2/3 C. old-fashioned rolled oats
1/2 C. raisins
1/3 C. packed brown sugar
1 T. ground cinnamon
4 C. milk
2 medium apples, chopped (2 C.)
1/2 C. chopped walnuts
Preheat the oven to 350º. Spray a 2-quart casserole or a 9×13” pan and mix all ingredients in the pan. Bake uncovered 40 to 45 minutes or until most of the liquid is absorbed.
Kitchen Hint: Serve immediately—or, cool and keep covered in the fridge. Keeps for 3 or 4 days, and can be reheated in the oven, covered, or microwaved one bowl at a time.
