(My suggestions are in italics)
1 cup oil (can substitute applesauce, which lowers the fat and calories significantly and still tastes very yummy!)
1 1/2 cups sugar (can use 1 cup of sugar)
6 cups oats (quick oats taste better than old-fashioned oats in this recipe)
4 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 cups milk (I've used skim milk to lower fat and calories and it tasted just the same as when I used higher fat milk)
Combine all ingredients in the order listed. Pour into greased 9x13- inch pan. Bake at 375 for 30-40 minutes until lightly browned. Can refrigerate overnight before baking. Serve topped with butter, brown sugar, and milk (we usually just top it with brown sugar).
Yields: approximately 8-10 servings
