Cinnamon Raisin Baked Oatmeal

We’ve been alternating between Budget Bytes pumpkin baked oatmeal and the banana baked oatmeal. I’m ready for a different flavor and I remembered the abundance of raisins we found while cleaning the cabinets. And the half-eaten jar of applesauce in the fridge.

My kids didn’t used to like baked oatmeal but now they eat it all the time. They’ll have it for snacks (as seen here) or breakfast. I apologize for the lighting in this photo because it’s dark and rainy here lately.

I eat baked oatmeal for breakfast every day. Sometimes I even eat it with a bit of maple syrup as a dessert. And when we travel, I make a batch (or two!) to take with us. I like that it’s a relatively fool-proof recipe – just add stuff to bowl and bake. Sometimes when I’m feeling super-lazy, I’ll just mix everything right in the pan. (I also measure dry ingredients first so I only dirty one measuring cup)
