Baked oatmeal

My sweet oldest boy was sent home early from school two days last week due to an icky tummy. We cannot figure out why his stomach (seemingly) randomly becomes so upset. We have removed so many of the "bad" things from his diet, so what else could it be? Is it reacting to the adjustment? Or is it something we're not thinking of? At any rate, I'm on a mission to feed him nothing but goodness as we figure out the culprit.

I threw this baked oatmeal into the oven last night for the boys' dinner and they were so excited about the idea of having breakfast for dinner. BREAKFAST FOR DINNER?! Mama, that's sooo silly! But guess what. Elijah, my very very picky eater, ate two HUGE bowls of it. He loved it, and that is one big, gigantic endorsement. No joke.

Preaheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a medium circle or 9x9-ish baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.

In a large bowl, combine:

2 cups old-fashioned oats

1 tablespoon wheat germ

1 tablespoon flaxseed

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon sea salt

Mix well and set aside.

In a medium bowl, combine:

1 1/2 cups milk

1 peach, peeled, pitted and mashed (substitution: 1 banana, peeled and mashed)

1 egg

1/4 cup honey

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Mix well. Add to the oats mixture and stir until thoroughly combined.

Line the bottom of the prepared baking dish with 3/4 cup of fresh blackberries. Pour the entire oatmeal mixture evenly over the top.

Evenly pour 1/2 cup of additional milk over the top of that.

Top with another 3/4 cup of fresh blackberries.

Bake in the preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until the oatmeal is cooked through. Serve warm! 

Have a great week and thank you so much for reading! Assuming I will find the time, I have a very fun giveaway coming up later in the week. Exciting! I love giveaways!

Just thought I would mention having your son tested for an IBD such as crohn's if you are still having trouble with his eating. Many doctors don't test for it unless pushed to do so. Hope he is feeling better soon.
