Baked Oatmeal

Last year during Ramadan, I made baked oatmeal to eat at the morning meal before fasting all day.  It did not get eaten and neither A (my husband) or I really liked it.  I knew that it had potential and that I liked the idea of having the oatmeal with a less runny consistency.  A few months ago, I made baked oatmeal to take to a friend's for a brunch which everyone, including myself, loved.  I forgot about baked oatmeal again until I started seeing recipes on Pinterest (which I love) for baked oatmeal.  This morning, I wanted something yummy for breakfast and decided to try one of the recipes.  I used this recipe from the Taste of Home website for my base.  I used 1 cup of not packed brown sugar because I'm trying to cut down my sugar intake.  Next time, I think I'll cut it down to 1/2 cup.  I also added 1t of vanilla extract and used 2t of cinnamon.  It's truly delicious.  I poured a little bit of hot milk over my serving and mmmm!  The leftovers will make good breakfasts for those mornings that I don't feel like making anything.  I hope I can convince A to try it (and like it).
