Baked Oatmeal

I received a bag of oats in my farm share. It wasn't a small bag. It was a bag of oats. What was I going to do with a bag of oats? I read if I put them into a food processor and pulse about 4 times then I would make quick cooking oats since they would be a little smaller in size. I figured I would make some oatmeal with it. I will disclose my children are not the biggest fan of oatmeal so they weren't very enthusiastic about this breakfast. They said they didn't like it. They stirred in more milk since they want their oatmeal creamy. Did this surprise me? No but I liked it. My husband loves oatmeal and he liked it so I figured I would share. It is an easy recipe and great for a cold morning.
