Baked Oatmeal is a wonderful breakfast recipe that is filling and full of fiber. It is a welcome change from regular cooked oatmeal. Baked oats are buttery, sweet, and a bit crumbly. My kids love these warm breakfast oats. We pour milk over it, and top with fruit. But some of my kids eat it without milk, and it’s good like that, too!
Baked Oatmeal Recipe
This recipe is so simple, you cannot mess it up! First, place the butter, eggs, sugar, milk, and vanilla into a mixing bowl, and stir.
Next, add the oats and baking powder and salt. Stir again. Pour into greased 7×11 pan, and bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes at 400.
It will look mostly dry on top when it is finished baking, and the edges will be golden brown. It does not fall like a cake, so you don’t have to be so careful with it. You can stick a toothpick into the center and if it is mostly clean when you remove it, then the oatmeal is ready.
How do you eat baked oatmeal?
I like to eat it with milk and fruit. Sometimes I like a big spoonful of yogurt on top. Some people prefer to eat it plain. Any way you eat it – it’s good!
You can add nuts, raisins or fruit to the oatmeal before you bake it for some interesting and delicious flavors! My sister adds chocolate chips to her oatmeal. My kids like Aunt Jane’s oatmeal the best! Haha! (of course they do!)
How to store leftover baked oatmeal
Place in airtight container and store in the fridge up to three days. To reheat, simply warm in microwave or oven.
Can I prepare baked oatmeal ahead of time?
Yes! Mix the batter in the evening, cover with plastic wrap and store in the fridge overnight. In the morning, preheat the oven and bake as directed.
