Baked Oatmeal

6 cups organic rolled oats
1 cup Raw Agave Nectar (can sub honey or sucanat)
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
5 cups Raw milk, or plain kefir (more if you use it to soak the oats too)
(you have sub....filtered water with 3tbs of whey....if you do this than I drain and mix together with the milk after the soaking)
2/3 cup coconut oil (or less)
4 eggs, slightly beaten

In a bowl combine rolled oats & milk/kefir/yogurt. Use enough liquid to get all the oats wet. This is usually 2-2 cups for me. Soak overnight up to 24 hours on the counter .

In a large bowl, combine the rest of the ingredients. Then mix together with oats & milk/kefir. Pour into a greased 9x13x2 baking pan (or 2 oval corningware dishes) .

Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 35-45 minutes or until set.

Serve with additional milk, yogurt, butter, maple syrup, fresh fruit, whipped cream as needed.

Have fun with it. You can make it as fancy as you want. You could add in all kinds of dried or fresh fruits like raisins, blueberries, cherries, figs, dates, etc. Depending on your taste some cinnamon, nutmeg, or ginger would be a great addition.

This FREEZES great. We usually have extra leftover so I freeze it in individual portions for quick breakfasts. Heat on the stove/oven with a little milk to make the right consistency.
