To Die For Baked Apple Oatmeal (Lighter Version)
I decided the original was just a tad too fattening and full of sugar, so I decided to try to lighten it up a bit. It was a success. I have made it twice now. It is great to mix up the night before and then place in the oven in the morning.
- 1/3 cup oil (smart balance or vegetable oil)
- 1/4 cup white sugar
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 1/4 cup milk
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 Tbsp baking powder
- 3 cups oatmeal
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 apple, diced
- 2 Tbsp brown sugar
- 2 Tbsp butter
