Baked and Soaked Oatmeal

(originally from, but I changed a few things)
(soaking oats and whole grains helps to break down phytates, which impair digestion and can block mineral absorption)

The day before:
·         3 cups rolled oats
·         1/2 cup melted butter or coconut oil
·         1/2 cup sucanat
·         1/4 cup shredded coconut (unsweet)
·         1 cup cultured milk product (I use 1/2 cup plain yogurt mixed with 1/2 cup water, but you can use buttermilk or kefir as well)

1.       Mix well, cover with kitchen towel, and leave sitting on counter until the next morning (do this 12-24 hours in advance).

The next morning:
·         2 beaten eggs
·         2 tsp. baking powder
·         1/2 tsp. salt
·         1/2 tsp. cinnamon

1.       Mix and smooth out.
2.       Bake for 30-40 minutes, or until lightly browned and crisp on top.
