Plum-Topped Oatmeal

Serves 4
-2 cups rolled oats
-1/2 cup packed brown sugar
-1 teaspoon baking powder
-Pinch salt
-3 tablespoons cinnamon chips
-1 1/2 cups low fat milk
-1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce
-2 tablespoons melted butter
-1 large egg beaten
-1 teaspoon vanilla extract
-5 prune plums, sliced and pitted

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Combine the oats, brown sugar, salt, baking powder, and cinnamon chips in medium bowl. In a separate bowl, combine the the milk, apple sauce, butter, egg, and vanilla extract. Stir the oat and milk mixtures together and pour into a loaf pan or 8-inch square baking dish. Top with the sliced prune plums cut side up. Bake for 35 minutes. You’re looking for a nice crust and softened plums, but still a creamy oatmeal-like interior. Serve warm.
