I'm sure I've mentioned this before, but I am not the greatest fan of oatmeal - at least when it is cooked in milk the usual way : the lumpy look and the weird smell and the mushy texture really put me off. However, I am a good friend of oatmeal in mŘesli, and in cookies, and in this baked oatmeal recipe.

The original recipe is brought to us by the good people at Quaker Oats, and it caught my attention as it went through a bout of extreme popularity on the Cooking Light billboards a little while ago. It originally calls for oil but I omit it because it's really unnecessary, and I like to add more fruit than just raisins or dried cranberries : an apple, a banana, a pear, a peach, dried blueberries or dates or figs are great additions, and it is really nice with nuts of any kind, too.

A slice of this oatmeal flan for breakfast is a delightful way to start the day : tasty, filling and healthy. A great item to serve for brunch, it also freezes beautifully : you can make a batch of it and then store individual servings in the freezer, to thaw, reheat and eat when you feel like it.
