Oatmeal can be bland, but this is fabulous. The apples and nuts give it that extra crunch and the cinnamon and vanilla gives it a great flavor.
1 Cup Oats – Regular oats not instant
1 Cup Milk
1 Apple, peeled, cored and diced
¼ Cup + 2 TBSP Walnuts, chopped
½ Cup + 2 TBSP Light Brown Sugar
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1 Egg, lightly beaten
2 Tablespoons butter, melted
Pinch of Salt
Preheat oven to 350º. Grease the bottom of a baking dish or ramekins. Mix the oats and milk together to soak.
