Baked Oatmeal with Fruit

This warm breakfast is so tasty and comforting, you’ll forget it’s heart-healthy too.

3 cups quick-cooking oats 
1 cup brown sugar, packed
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
½ tsp cinnamon
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup skim milk
½ cup light margarine, melted
½ tsp vanilla
¾ cup diced, peeled apple (try Granny Smith)
1/3 cup fresh or canned peaches, diced
1/3 cup fresh or frozen blueberries (thaw if frozen)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare 8x8 baking dish with cooking spray.

In a large bowl, combine oats, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. In a separate bowl, gently beat together eggs, milk, margarine, and vanilla. Slowly pour wet ingredients to combine with dry ingredients, mixing until completely combined. Fold in apples, peaches, and blueberries.

Pour mixture into baking dish. Bake, uncovered, 35-40 minutes, until cooked through in the center. Cut into squares and serve warm.
