I made my own applesauce, but it just stuck to the pan and burnt!
I used instant oats which dad said wouldn't matter, but I don't know if rolled oats were better. I didn't have ripe bananas-- in fact, these bananas had just arrived-- so they weren't mashing so mum suggested to microwave it. I did, for about 30s, and I mashed it, but it totally congealed......
So that wasn't very good.....
Everything was looking and tasting fine and I made 2 batches of small ones. I made some with peanuts, some with almonds , some with a bit of nature valley crunchy bar on top, and quite a few with some peanut butter stirred in (I have always thought that peanut butter would taste great in oatmeal, so why not in this?)
They looked great, but when mum tried them she said they seemed under cooked.
I tried one....... Yuck yuck yuck yuck yuck........ It was like raw play dough!!!!!
Dad thought the problem was a lack of sweetness.
So we dissolved some powdered sugar in warm water on a stove and drizzled that over the muffin things and baked them some more. Better.....
I have them warmed and that's ok. But definitely not my best.... They looked so appetising on the website! So fun, so cute, so oatmeal-muffin-y.... I guess maybe her toppings were sweeter, her oats were different and her banana was better.... But I dunno....
Baked Oatmeal To Go

Note: I used regular milk, regular salt, butter instead of cooking spray, a regular egg and regular oats are fine (no need for gluten-free, unless you want/need it).
