1/2 c rolled oats
1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Step By Step Baked Oatmeal & Gingerbread Topping Recipe Directions:
Step 1: Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Step 2: Combine raw oats, spices, applesauce, Betsy’s Best Gourmet Almond Butter, salt, and liquid.
Step 3: Pour into a small baking pan, loaf pan, or 1-cup ramekin (or, for mini boats, two 1/2-cup ramekins).
Step 4: Cook for 15-20 minutes, or more until it’s firm.
Step 5: Meanwhile mix all of the gingerbread toppings in a bowl and stir to combine and set aside.
Step 6: When the baked oatmeal is finished cooking set your oven to “high broil” and coat the top of the oatmeal with the gingerbread topping and cook for 1-2 more minutes (or simply just bake longer, but broiling gives it a nice crust).
Step 7: Remove from oven and garnish with a gingersnap cookie and cool whip.
Step 8: Enjoy your baked oatmeal with gingerbread almond butter topping!
Optional topping: gingersnap cookie, cool whip, additional almond butter
