Oatmeal is good for cholesterol.

Just wanted to share a recipe for baked oatmeal from Cooking Light Magazine 2003.
Let me start by saying I hate oatmeal. I knew it was good for me but I just couldn't swallow it. I hated the texture. I decided to try this recipe and now am in love with it. I have it every morning for breakfast. I have it for afternoon snack sometimes also. It is like having dessert but it is healthy. Try it once and let me know if you agree.
My husband makes me a batch Monday morning and it lasts me through Friday.


5 servings (serving size: 2/3 cup)


  • 2 cups uncooked quick-cooking oats
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup raisins
  • 1 tablespoon chopped walnuts
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 1/2 cups fat-free milk
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • Cooking spray


Preheat oven to 375°.

Combine the first 5 ingredients in a medium bowl. Combine the milk, applesauce, butter, and egg. Add milk mixture to oat mixture; stir well. Pour oat mixture into an 8-inch square baking dish coated with cooking spray. Bake at 375° for 20 minutes. Serve warm.
