Strawberry Rhubarb Baked Oatmeal


It's rhubarb season and I can't believe this was the only thing I've made so far with it!  What's awesome about rhubarb, it pairs so well with so many fruits.  Blueberries, peaches, strawberries, whatever.  They are good alone but adding rhubarb just brings it to another level and changes it so well!


I loved, loved, loved this oatmeal. I ate way too much of it, I just couldn't stop. It was like eating a healthy dessert for breakfast. 


I chose to use splenda to keep the calories down. It worked well and at 265 calories for a big portion, it rocked. Incredibly delicious and very filling!



Strawberry Rhubarb Baked Oatmeal
Adapted from $5 Dollar Dinners

2 cups diced rhubarb
3 cups diced strawberries
2 large eggs
1/4 cup applesauce
1/4 cup canola oil
1/2 cup splenda (or sugar)
1 1/2 cups milk
3 cups quick cooking oats
1/2 cup whole wheat flour (or gluten free blend)
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1/2 cup brown sugar, for sprinkling

Spray a 9 x 13 in. pan with cooking spray.  Toss the rhubarb and strawberries in the baking dish.  In a mixing bowl, whisk togther the remaining ingredients, except the brown sugar.  Pour the batter over the top of the fruit and stir gently to combine the fruit.  Sprinkle the brown sugar over the top.  Bake in oven at 350 for 30 - 35 minutes.  Serve with vanilla yogurt if desired!
