You might be wondering why this baked oatmeal is for ninjas.  Well, there are two reasons.

One, a ninja made it as evidenced here:

He might look like Spiderman to you, but he is a ninja.  That is a ninja sword.

And two, this breakfast will stealthily find its way into mornings of your future.  In other words, it’s perfect to make on Sunday, eat some, and pack the rest up for breakfasts throughout the week.

I plan on taking mine to work, but you could certainly eat it at home.

Even if you eat breakfast at home, this makes delicious, homemade oatmeal as easy as cereal and let’s face it, oatmeal is yummier (especially when it’s cold out), and better for you.

This recipe makes just enough for my kid cook and me to eat a little on Sunday, and then pack up 5 portions, one for each day of the work week.

Ingredients:

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 c applesauce – try homemade!
  • 1 c milk
  • 3 c quick oats
  • 1 t salt
  • 1 T baking powder
  • 1 c blueberries
  • 1 t cinnamon
  • 1/3 c chopped pecans

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F and spray a 9×13 baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Whisk together eggs, applesauce, and milk.
  3. Stir in oats, salt, and baking powder.
  4. Fold in blueberries.
  5. Pour mixture into pan.
  6. Sprinkle cinnamon and pecans on top.
  7. Bake 20-25 minutes.

Here are some ideas to get your “kid cook” involved with this recipe:

  • Have him do all the mixing.  “Poking the eggs” is a favorite in our house.
  • He can sprinkle the cinnamon and nuts on top.
If your kid cook still wants to help after putting it in the oven, put him to work on the dishes.
