baked oatmeal

baked oatmeal? i was intrigued the first time i read it in the money saving mom blog. as long as it's healthy food & i have the ingredients on hand, i'm giving it a go.
~ 2 eggs
~ 2 cups applesauce
~ 5 cups, old fashioned oats
~ 1/4 cup brown sugar
~ 1 mashed banana
~ 2 3/4 cups skim milk
~ 1/4 cup ground flaxseed
~ 1 tbsp ground cinnamon
~ 3 tsp baking powder
~ 1 tsp vanilla
~ 1 tsp salt
~ 1/2 tsp nutmeg
~ fruits or nuts (optional)

1) mix oats, salt, baking powder, flaxseed, cinnamon & nutmeg in a bowl.
2) in a separate bowl, mix eggs, applesauce, banana, vanilla & sugar.
3.) add dry ingredients to wet ingredients. then pour milk & mix well. fold in fruits or nuts [i added fresh mangoes].
4.) [i used an ice cream scooper]. place batter in cupcake liners. bake for 25-30 minutes [or until set] in a preheated oven at 350F.
the oatmeal was tasty. i sometimes eat this topped with bumbleberry spread. i'm adding this to my arsenal of healthy treats.
