Crispy Baked Oatmeal

2 eggs or egg substitute equivalent
1/3 c vegetable oil
¼ c packed brown sugar
3 c old-fashioned oats
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
¾ tsp ground cinnamon
1/3 c flaked coconut
1/3 c raisins
1/3 c craisins
1/3 c walnuts

In a bowl, combine eggs, oil and brown sugar. Combine the oats, baking powder, salt and cinnamon; add to egg mixture, stirring until just moistened. Stir in the coconut, raisins and craisins.

Spoon into a greased 13x9x2 inch baking dish. Bake, uncovered, at 350 for 20-25 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Serve with milk or yogurt if desired.

Yield: 4-6 servings

I love granola, but haven't had much success with traditional recipes. This one is perfect every time. It is delicious and filling. I found this recipe in a Quick Cooking magazine and played with it a lot to decrease fat and sugar while adding dried fruit that we like. Play with it to accommodate your tastes!
