Apples and Oatmeal Breakfast Casserole

This is something I came up with while tweaking a recipe from the Lots of Kid's recipe page.

4 cups rolled oats
1 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
pinch of ground clove
pinch of all spice
3 t cinnamon
1 1/2 cups milk
4 eggs
1 cup unsweetened apple sauce
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
2 apples cored & sliced thin
1 t vanilla extract

Measure the oats into a large bowl, add the baking powder & spices, set aside. In another bowl mix the milk, eggs, apple sauce & brown sugar. When the sugar is dissolved well, add the apple slices. Slowly pour the liquid mixture into the oat mixture, add the vanilla. Stir until everything is well mixed being careful not to smash the apple slices. Pour into a 9 x 11 greased baking dish.

Bake in a 350 oven until the top is golden...approx 45 minutes. Serve hot with milk like traditional oatmeal or let it cool & slice into squares to be eaten like a snack cake.
