With all the yummy choices of breakfast items, my children still love cereal. There HAS to be some healthy alternatives to cereal that can go beyond egg whites, and green shakes. And I'm on a mission to find as many as I can.
A friend of mine gave me this recipe for baked oatmeal. The recipe calls for the baked oats to be eaten warm (from the oven) with warm milk but I've found that I really, really like it cold, with cold milk and strawberries. It really is good. Really. If I don't have fresh strawberries I defrost some frozen ones and add them into the mixture (liquid and all).
Here's the recipe.
2 1/2 cups combo of quick and old fashioned
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 cup skim milk
1/4 cup butter, melted
2 tsp baking powder
some salt shakes
2 tsp vanilla
Combine ingrediants and pour into a greased 9 X 13in pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes at 350F.
Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge.
