Weekly Recipes: December 12

Only one this week. But it's a good one for cold winter mornings and can be prepared the night before and popped in the oven before you shower in the morning. This is also a great way to reclaim apples or pears that are getting mealy.

Baked Oatmeal

2 cups steel cut oats
2 cups raisins(or other small dried fruit, like cranberries or cherries or chopped apricots)
2 cups chopped apples or pears
water to cover
2 1/4 cups milk
3/4 cup honey
1/2 cup coconut oil
3 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups chopped nuts

Butter a 9" X 13" pan well. Pour in oats, raisins and chopped apples (or pears). Stir to combine. Cover with water and let soak on the counter overnight.

In the morning, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Mix the milk, honey, coconut oil, eggs, vanilla, cinnamon, baking powder and salt together well (I use a stick blender, but if you are doing it by hand, whisk the dry things into the honey and coconut oil, then whisk the eggs in, then whisk in the milk and vanilla). Pour over soaked oat mixture and mix well. Carefully stir in nuts. Bake for 30-45 minutes.
