Fall is back and it is time for a new baked oatmeal recipe. We’ve had delicious Clementine Cranberry Baked Oatmeal and Zucchini Baked Oatmeal. Now it’s time for an allergy friendly and easy to make baked oatmeal. Egg-free, dairy-free, nut-free and no sugar added, Applesauce Baked Oatmeal is easy enough that even the kids could make it.
It seems hard to believe that just a week ago I was surrounded by fresh produce. There were fruits and vegetables as far as the eye could see, and then some. I had the privilege of working with Mucci Farms leading up to and during The Produce Marketing Association’s Convention and Expo, Fresh Summit.
