In an attempt to get all my recipes and cooking talk in one place, I’ll be periodically re-posting recipes from my time writing on the Kitchen Mirror here. In some cases I may update pictures & proof-read, but for the most part it will just be a re-posting of what I had there. The posts are not in chronological order – I’m trying to post holiday appropriate recipes near the holidays they go with & fill in others around them.

A couple weeks ago I decided to try out a recipe for baked oatmeal after hearing about it from other people. And, well, I like oatmeal, so I figured this would be a good change of pace.
The recipe I used was one I found online at Penzey’s(who make great spices, by the way). In my version, I used pecans because I always chose them over any other nut in baking & craisins because I had some leftover from another baking escapade.This recipe made 8 servings as I made it at about 235 calories. It was really good, definitely a remake on my list. It even reheats well & I have a few servings leftover in my freezer & we’ll see if they are still good later.
I was trying to keep this somewhat healthy, so I didn’t top it with anything, but I bet it would be delicious with whipped cream. Or, y’know, maybe with the optional fruit & yogurt they suggest on the recipe page.
Edit: As the recipe is no longer available where I found it, I’m posting it below.
