Serves 4

Ingredients:

-2 cups rolled oats
-1/2 cup granulated sugar
-1 teaspoon baking powder
-Pinch salt
-1 1/2 cups low fat milk
-1 large egg, beaten
-2 tablespoons melted butter
-1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
-1 2-inch piece vanilla bean, split lengthwise

Method:

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Combine the oats, granulated sugar, salt, and baking powder in a medium bowl. In a separate bowl, combine the milk, egg, melted butter and vanilla extract. Scrape the seeds of the vanilla bean into the egg mixture reserving the bean for another use. Stir the oat and milk mixtures together and then fold in the chopped orange confit.

Bake for 30-35 minutes, until a nice crust has developed and the oatmeal is lightly brown around the edges. Serve warm.
