Baked Oatmeal

(originally from, but I changed quite  a few things)

(Soaking oats and whole grains helps to break down phytates, which impair digestion and can block mineral absorption.  It's just like soaking beans.  It really helps with digestion.)


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)

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


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