Baked Oatmeal

I’ve never made baked oatmeal. I think I’ve had it before (Mom might have even made it at home), but I don’t really remember when. The only oatmeal I really liked (before this) is the stuff in packets, the maple & brown sugar flavor. I just saw this recipe while looking for something else and it kind of grabbed me, so I decided to try it. And, it was GOOD!!! It’s filling too! (with seconds, that is) 😉

It’s easy and quick too… you can get out of bed, make it in your pjs, put it in the oven and by the time you’re dressed and combed and have the bowls, spoons, and milk around, it’s ready to pull out of the oven. Make it tomorrow morning!

Add the baking powder and salt, then alternately add the oats and milk, mixing just until well blended. Pour into a greased 9×9 baking dish.

Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.

Serve this warm with milk for a breakfast dish or with ice cream for a dessert. When I got this out of the oven, Lexi thought I had made bars! We all really liked it, even the girls had seconds, which by the way is quite something… usually at mealtime we deal with “Do I have to eat all this?” instead of “Can I have more of that stuff?”

    I LOVE baked oatmeal! I always used to bake it in the oven, but was in a hurry one time and discovered it’s just as good done in the microwave for 7 minutes. My 16-year-old son was just asking for this the other night.

    Funny thing, the other day I wrote down a recipe that is the same as this one, except the salt is different. I also just wrote down the halved version of it beings I doubt Kait and I will eat that much. Now I am just waiting until I decide on a morning to make it. I saw the idea somewhere else, and I see JoAnn ^^ already uses it, to do it in the microwave. I think I am going to try that method.

    Welcome back to the blogging world, Kay!

    I’m hoping to return this weekend — we’ll see…I’m still trying to “adjust” to the stove and oven in my new house. (As in — my first post might be more of a disaster than a treat! LOL)

    yum! i love baked oatmeal, it’s a comfort food. it would have been perfect this morning. i cut the sugar in half, replace it w/honey add sliced apples tossed in the brown sugar with a little cinnamon too. i guess you can add any fruit or even filling, they used to do that at a restaraunt i worked at(way back when).

    I just made this on Sunday morning!! I like to put a layer of frozen blueberries in the bottom of the pan and top it with the oatmeal mixture and then bake it. Then I eat it vanilla yogurt instead of milk!! It’s so good.

    I took my own advice and made it again this morning. :) This time i tried it in the microwave, like you suggested, JoAnn, and it turned out great! Now I want to try it sometime with fruit in it and eating it w\ yogurt.

    One of my favorite things about this site is getting tips and ideas from you all! 😉

    I made it for breakfast in the microwave – turned out great. Then I took your idea for dessert at lunch by eating it with ice cream. Of course, I added chocolate chips to it. I liked that better than the breakfast version. I want to try it with fruit sometime too. Too bad I can’t say that my daughter just loved it. =(

    We love it with with 1/2 – 1 TB cinnamon in the recipe. We also like to eat it with frozen blueberries. The last time I made it, I used maple flavoring (about half the amount of vanilla) since I was out of vanilla, and it turned out very tasty!!

    This is a fairly frequent breakfast for us, but my recipe is different, I’ll have to try this one. I sometimes add apple chunks, and I love it with dried cranberries in it (especially at this time of the year!). We eat it with syrup drizzled over the top, and milk. I love the blueberries/yogurt idea above!

    Baked, or unbaked – oatmeal is not a favorite of ours. But, I am glad to see you’re posting again.

    I had some awesome baked oatmeal at a coffee shop in Arkansas. I don’t know what all they added but there were nuts and dried cranberries in it too. I’ve started adding either chopped walnuts or sliced almonds to my oatmeal as a way of adding more protein. I should do some experimenting with the baked oatmeal. I’ve started cooking my oatmeal in apple juice for a natural healthy sweetener. I love to add cinnamon, nuts, and dried cranberries if I have those on hand. I was needing to cut calories so I did this version to cut back on the oil and sugar.

    This is a favorite of ours. I make it for a quick and filling lunch. Try adding a teaspoon of cinnamon to the batter. Yum!

    I love baked oatmeal. It’s not at all like cooked oatmeal, which I also enjoy. It’s consistancy is more like a cake. I like to add cinnamon and raisins, or cranberries, and nuts of any kind. I also like to have leftovers, because you can warm it it the microwave, and its as good as freshly made.
