I like oatmeal! I love this recipe! If you have a picky eater that won’t try it, they might this one.
I cook every summer for a youth residential summer camp. I cook this every year and every year I have kids how have never tried oatmeal eat this and come back for more.
I cut the recipe in half as it is for 50 people. I cook it in my large crock-pot and when it is done, I freeze it in Ziploc bags for an easy breakfast later in the month.
- 1 cup of Oil
- 1 1/2 cup of Applesauce
- 3 cups Sugar (can use half brown sugar and half white)
- 8 Eggs, beaten
- 10 cups Oats
- 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
- 4 tsp Salt
- 4 1/2 cups Milk (I use soy or almond milk)
- 2-3 tsp Cinnamon (optional)
- 1 cup Wheat Germ (optional)
Lightly spray crock-pot with cooking spray.
Whisk eggs, sugar, and oil/applesauce together. Stir in milk and dry ingredients.
Cover and refrigerate for 6 hours.
Bake in crock-pot for at least 4-6 hours. Check after 2 hours, stir, adding in extra milk if needed for texture.
Now when I eat it throughout the month I can add honey, raisins, fruit, brown sugar, or granola to it before I reheat in the microwave.
I have also started to add 1/2 tsp of vanilla, microwave it and once it heated for 2-3 minutes I add 4 TBSP of yellow cake mix.
