Raspberry-blueberry baked oatmeal for breakfast? Yes please!! and yes, is healthy too. Although I don´t count calories, I thought you'd be interested to know that each serving has only 144 calories!
In this recipe I used applesauce instead of oil/butter. Before you leave this blog because you don´t have any applesauce or you can´t get it where you live, wait !! keep reading! I can´t get applesauce here either, but there is an easy, quick and cheap solution. Just cut a red apple, take the core out, if you want you can peel it, I use everything, put it in a small saucepan with a little bit of water, just to cover the fruit, and cook it until soft. Add everything to the blender and you have applesauce! now there is no excuse, you can make this recipe :).
At home we eat a lot of baked oatmeal for breakfast. I usually bake a few trays, and when they´re cold, I cut them into individual portions and freeze it for other breakfasts.
I don´t always have raspberries and blueberries on hand. If I have more apples, I cut some and add them with a pinch of cinnamon and nutmeg; or some sliced bananas. What if you don´t have any fruit? You can make it anyway! just plain baked oatmeal, brown sugar gives it a caramel-like flavor, so it still delicious!
