Baked Oatmeal Squares with Dried Cherries

from, Adapted from December 2007 Gourmet magazine’s Baked Oatmeal recipe, repinned by the Meal Makeover Moms, slightly adapted by me

Hearty and chewy.

  • 3 cups old fashioned oats
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup plain nonfat yogurt
  • 1/2 cup nonfat milk
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 3/4 cup dried cherries
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8×8-inch baking pan with foil letting edges extend beyond the pan to serve as handles.  Spray the foil in the pan with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together oats, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and dried cherries.
  3. In another bowl, whisk together yogurt, milk, applesauce, oil, brown sugar, eggs and extracts. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients, mix until just incorporated.
  4. Pour batter into baking pan and spread evenly in pan.
  5. Cook for 35 minutes or until golden brown on top. Cool in pan before lifting out the whole thing, peeling off the foil, and cutting into squares.
