Basic Baked Oatmeal
{Dairy-Free Soaked Version}

3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons water.
2 tablespoons lemon juice or whey
2 cups old fashioned or quick cooking oats

1/3 cup 
coconut oil
2 eggs
1/4 to 1/3 cup whole cane sugar, 

(sucanat), real maple syrup, honey, or regular sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla, optional
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Mix the water, lemon juice or whey, and oats together in a container with a lid or a bowl and covered with plastic wrap and set in a warm place or on the counter for 12-24 hours. 

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Poor the batter into the pan. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until the edges start to brown. 

Serve with milk or milk substitute, plain yogurt with a drizzle of real maple syrup or honey, chopped fresh fruit, dried fruit or nuts.

Preparation time: 10 minutes plus 12-24 hours to soak the oats. 
Bake time: 30 minutes. Servings: 4-6.
