My toddler enjoys a warm piece for breakfast or snack-looks just like cake!-with a glass of goats milk.
What you need:
3 cups rolled oats
1 + 3/4 cups milk
dash of salt
2 apples peeled and chopped
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
about 1/3 cup dark brown sugar (we use Wholesome Sweeteners), reserving 2 tablespoons for topping
3 tablespoons butter, plus some extra for topping
1 teaspoon of baking powder (I don't know if this is needed)
9 inch baking dish
food processor, grater or Thermomix for chopping apples
How to assemble:
Combine oats and milk and salt. You can soak in the refrigerator overnight if you would like and then proceed with the rest of the recipe when ready to bake. For more about soaking grains, consult Wholefood for Children (book title and author in cookbook list). Soaking grains and flours is a new concept for me and I am working on incorporating this step into my recipes.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Butter your baking dish.
Peel and chop up apples. Combine with ginger, cinnamon, brown sugar and melted butter.
Add apple mixture to oat mixture and then add baking powder.
Mix everything together and add mixture to prepared baking dish.
Sprinkle with butter and remaining brown sugar.
Bake for about 45 minutes or until golden.
