Microwave Baked Oatmeal



Mornings... Some of us love mornings, and we hit the ground running..
Some of us don't like morning as well.. We want to wake up leisurely, we don't want to have a conversation for at least the first hour...
And no matter if you love or don't love mornings, as a mom, chances are you will have to learn to live with 'the other kind'.
I love mornings... My husband doesn't..
2 of my children love mornings and 2 wake up very slowly!!!!
So mornings can sound pretty hairy in our home..
Add lunches and healthy breakfast and by the time everyone is safely delivered to school I feel like I've accomplished a full marathon!!
Healthy breakfast... It doesn't have to be time consuming..
Here is our family's favorite:
Baked Oatmeal:
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
 
Whip butter, sugar and eggs with wire wisk in glass or microwavable bowl.
Add:
 
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 1.5 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 cups quick oats
  • 1/2 cup ground flax seed
  • 3/4 cup milk
Stir until mixed together well and microwave for 5 min. stir and microwave for 5-7 min more.
serve with ice cold milk.
Even more delicious when served with fresh fruit!!
 
Keep left overs in refrigerator a sealed container and reheat or serve cold the next morning.  
 
Don't like the taste of ground flax seed? buy a small electric coffee mill and buy your whole flax seed and grind them right before you use them.. (flax contains lots of oil and turns rancid quickly, the taste of pre-ground flax seed is a lot stronger than the mild taste of fresh ground flax seed!
