Bake Your Heart Out Recipe Review and Giveaway

The wonderful folks over at Lucky Leaf have given me the chance to sample some of their products and review a recipe. I received one of their new cookbooks, "Bake Your Heart Out". It's a full color, 43-page cookbook that is brimming with recipes that are as easy to make as they are to eat. I was so impressed with not only their products, but with the cookbook as well.

Here is a picture of the cookbook:

Isn't it nice? Love it. Now, Lucky Leaf also sent me a few different pie fillings to try out, and boy let me tell you~ there are so many good looking recipes in there to choose from. Deciding what to make was like torture. Should it be Cherry-Chocolate Macaroon Pie? It's the one pictured on the cover. How about Layers of love Choco Trifle? Hmmm.....Simple and Sweetie Blueberry Cobbler?

I had the hardest time trying to pick but I finally settled on Sweet Apple-Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal. I've been wanting to try baked oatmeal for quite some time and this seemed like a good time to try!

This stuff right here folks?

This is the stuff dreams are made of. My kids gobbled it up, I love it and I actually think it's quite tasty now that it has had some time to cool off.

Sweet Apple-Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal

3 cups old-fashioned oats
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1 (21-ounce) can Lucky Leaf Premium Pie Filling
4 eggs, beaten
3 cups milk
1/4 cup canola oil
1 Tablespoon Vanilla
Milk or half-and-half

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

IN a large bowl combine oats, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt. Stir in Lucky Leaf Premium Apple Pie Filling.

In a second large bowl stir together eggs, milk, oil and vanilla. Stir egg mixture into oat mixture until combined.

Pour mixture into a 3 quart (I used a 9x13 Pyrex pan) rectangular baking pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 45-55 minutes or until oatmeal is set.

Serve warm in bowls with milk or half-and-half.

So easy and so good! Down in the corner of the page it says, "For a different taste, try substituting Lucky Leaf Premium Peach or Blueberry in place of the apple." Yum!

You can bake this up for breakfast on a busy school day the night before and re-heat it, or make it on the weekend as an easy but delicious breakfast. What about Christmas morning? This could be baking away while you tear into your gifts :)

Because the folks over at Lucky Leaf are as amazing as their products, they have graciously offered to provide me with 2 of these fantastic little books to give away.
