Basic Baked Oatmeal
1 cup whole milk, coconut milk, sugar-free nut or rice milk, water, or 1 1/4 cup yogurt*
1/3 cup melted coconut oil or melted butter
1/4 to 1/3 cup whole cane sugar (sucanat), real maple syrup, honey, or regular sugar

2 cups old fashioned or quick cooking oats
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder*
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
In a medium mixing bowl combine the first five ingrediants. Stir in the remaining ingredients. Using coconut oil or butter, lightly grease a 8x8, 9x9, or 9-inch round pan. Poor the batter into the pan.
Bake for about 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.
