Plain Baked Oatmeal with Old-Fashioned Oats

I'm not a morning person, so breakfast is always an issue for me during the work week.  I have to be at work before 7:00, and my commute is about three times as long as it was before last year.  (Maybe that's an exaggeration.  Have I mentioned that I'm not a morning person?)

I have been on the hunt for easy-to-throw-together breakfast items that won't leave me hungry halfway through my morning.  This baked oatmeal certainly fit the bill.  I made it on Sunday night, intending to heat up a piece each morning.  Instead, I've gotten hooked on eating it cold.  (Straight out of a sandwich baggie.  I'm classy like that.)  
It looks an awful lot like a granola bar, but it's not.  It's very soft and moist and would remind you of a super soft oatmeal cookie.  But with only 1/4 cup of sugar and no butter or oils to speak of, you don't have to feel guilty about nomming down on it for breakfast.

3 cups old-fashioned oats 
2 eggs 
2 cups milk 
1 tsp vanilla 
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tsp baking powder 
1 tsp salt
Dash cinnamon (optional 

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Mix all ingredients together and spread into a 9x13 buttered (or sprayed) metal pan.

Bake for 25 minutes.
