This Baked Oatmeal recipe came from a good friend of mine that is a celiac. It is the best Baked Oatmeal that I have ever had. It is so moist and perfect, probably because the oats are ground first. I changed a few of the ingredients to make it safe for Jazlyn and to suit our family's tastes. This recipe is so good and easy to prepare that it would be perfect for breakfast, dessert or an anytime snack.
Baked Oatmeal with Blueberries
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 cups ground oats (I just put oats in the blender and ground them until they were powdery)
3/4 cup soy milk
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp salt
3/4-1 1/2 cups frozen blueberries
Combine the brown sugar and applesauce. Add the oats, soy milk, baking powder, vanilla and salt then stir to thoroughly combine. Stir in the blueberries. Transfer to a sprayed 8x11 baking dish. Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes or a toothpick inserted in the center comes out mostly clean and the edges are just starting to become golden.
* Chopped frozen strawberries, peaches, pineapples, etc. can be used in place of the blueberries.

My daughter, Jazlyn, is anaphylactic to egg, dairy, peanuts, and tree nuts. When she was first diagnosed, I found it very difficult to find recipes and foods that didn't taste like "allergy" food. Over the last 12 years I have had a lot of fun developing and changing recipes so that they are safe for her. I love to share my recipes so that other families can realize how yummy "allergy" foods can taste. You don't have to sacrifice taste or your favorite foods, you just have to rethink how to make them. I made a promise to Jazzy that I would do my very best to find a way for her to eat any food she wants to try. So far I have been able to keep that promise. I hope your family enjoys these recipes as much as we do.
