Servings: 6servings (number of heart shapes will depend on your pan and your cookie cutter)
3 1/2cupsold fashioned rolled oats
2/3cupcraisins or dried cranberries
1/4cuplight flavored olive oil
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a 10" square (or 9" square or 7x10 or or 9x13 pan, you really can use almost any size) baking pan with parchment or foil, leaving enough extra to stand up around the sides. and set aside. Stir all the dry ingredients together and then stir in the oil. Then add the eggs and stir to combine. Add the milk last and stir again. Pour the oatmeal mixture into the prepared pan.
Bake for 30 minutes, or until an inserted knife comes out mostly clean with just oat crumbs on it. Remove from the oven and let cool in the pan for at least 10 minutes. Carefully lift the oatmeal out using the ends of parchment or foil. Set on the counter and slice or use a cookie cutter to create the shape you want. Enjoy!
*If you are not going to cut your oatmeal into shapes, skip the parchment paper and simply grease the pan. Serve hot from the oven and scoop with a spoon or let it cool a bit and then slice it.
MEAL: Let the oatmeal cool completely and then cut or scoop into portions. Store
the oatmeal in airtight freezer bags or containers. Reheat in the microwave
