I found this recipe and totally adapted it. I wanted to give credit since I adapted her recipe for my creation.
4 TBSP Butter (melted)
1/4 cup olive oil (or coconut oil)
2 TBSP Crunchy peanut butter (or any other nut butter would work)
3/4 cups sugar
2 TBSP molasses
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup milk
1/4 cup whole flax seeds
1/2 cup shredded apple
1/2 cup sliced whole cranberries
3 cups oatmeal *edit* (How could I forget to tell you how much oatmeal? chalk it up to being excited to share this recipe with you!)
In a medium sized bowl mix the oats,flax seeds, spices and baking powder together and set aside. In another bowl mix melted butter (and coconut oil if you use that) the eggs, peanut butter, sugar, milk (yes you can use coconut milk, flax milk, almond milk or rice milk) and vanilla together. slice your cranberries in half and then add them into the dry ingredients. Add shredded apple to the wet ingredients and then blend the wet into the dry. This looks a little soupy but it bakes up wonderfully.
Preheat oven to 350* and bake for 30 minutes.
I heated the milk up and added 1 tbsp of honey to it to sweeten it slightly. Then when the baked oatmeal was done I served it up in a bowl with a pouring of milk over the top.
The results were a grin from this happy boy.
