Tasty Tuesday - Baked Oatmeal, the Sequel

The baked oatmeal recipe I shared last week was a big hit!  I had several friends whip up batches of their own.  Yum!

This week, I took the baked oatmeal recipe and lightened it up a bit.  The original recipe is really sweet, and I wanted to take out some of that sweetness for every day eating.  I cut the calories from 360 (w/ 15 g of fat) to 230 (w/ 8g of fat) if you do 8 servings! :)

Here's the new ingredients:

  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup brown sugar  1/2 cup sucanat
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup fat-free milk
  • 2 eggs 4 egg whites
  • 1/2 cup melted butter  1/4 cup melted butter
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup dried cranberries 1 cup, unsweetened dried cranberries and/or cherries

  • Mix all ingredients together in a bowl, pour into a 9x9 pan or a pie plate, and bake at 350 for 40 minutes!

  • Also, this time I made mine in muffin tins to make portion control a little easier!  

  • My friend, Laura posted her adaptation to this recipe over at her blog, Start From Scratch

  1. Hi Jess,
    I found your blog from the Faithful Bloggers directory. I was excited to see your Oatmeal makeover. I then read your "About Me," and "My Prayer," and I was hooked. Thank you for sharing the moving story of Isaac. Congrats on your house. It's lovely. I'm now following your blog. Have a wonderful weekend! :)
