Left Over Oatmeal? No Problem.

We have come to love steel-cut oats and many days I will make more than enough.  Is anyone wondering what I do with all the left-over oatmeal?  Make baked oatmeal, oatmeal peanut butter balls, use it in breads or muffins, or make granola with all of it.

Basic Baked Oatmeal Recipe

After I have made oats from the previous day, I use all the left over oats (usually about 4-6 cups)
4 eggs, mixed well
2 cups yogurt, Kefir, or milk
1/2-1 cup melted butter
1 cup brown sugar or preferred sweetener
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2-1 cup chopped nuts
optional: fruit (this morning I added frozen diced peaches)

Mix all of the above ingredients and place in a 9x13 in. baking pan and bake at 375 degrees for 40-50 minutes.  Enjoy!
