This month, Country Choice Organic has asked fans to share their favorite oatmeal recipes. Not the five-minute breakfasts or quick midday snacks, but the slow-cooked, baking-for-fun kind of recipes. Because – as we like to say – a good recipe doesn’t just take time, it makes time. Slowing down allows us to connect with our food and with one another. And it’s those connections that build traditions.
With the Slow Down with Country Choice Organic Recipe Contest, we’ve connected through your touching stories and delectable recipes. And you’ve inspired us to share to share some of our own traditions.
John DePaolis, Chief Cookie Officer for Country Choice Organic (yes, you read that right – and yes, it is the best job ever) has been spending sub-zero weekend mornings with his wife and daughters this season making baked oatmeal. It’s a family favorite and never fails to provide a warm start to the day…even in the heart of Minnesota.
Winter Warming Baked Oatmeal
3 cups Country Choice Organic Old Fashioned Oats
3/4 cup organic brown sugar
1/2 cup organic butter
2 organic eggs
2 cups organic milk
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp organic cinnamon
Now, here comes the fun part. Add whatever you want…raisins and walnuts, blueberries, etc. You can’t mess it up!
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Mix together all ingredients with a spurtle and pour into 13 x 9 inch buttered pan. (You can also bake in a greased muffin tin, but watch the cook time!)
Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes.
