Baked Oatmeal

Now that everyone has started back to school, the rush is on to get kids out of bed, dressed, and fed before sending them out the door.  This recipe is great for something different to eat during the week that doesn't require a ton of work or time.  And, it's hearty and healthy!

When I lived overseas, at various times, boxed cereal was always very expensive, at least $5 for a small box, and usually Corn Flakes was the only kind available.  This oatmeal recipe became a favorite alternative, and we had it often.

4 cups of oats
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sugar or 1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup oil
1 1/2 - 2 cups milk
dash of cinnamon, if desired

Mix all together and place in a pie pan or casserole dish.  Bake at 375F (190C) until firm, about 30 minutes.  Serve warm, with milk, if desired.
