I will be making this very soon! It looks so yummy! And the possibilities are endless when you start adding different toppings. Thanks for another yummy idea!!


wow - this is a great idea - and I like that it is kid-approved - we are big oatmeal eaters.


We love oatmeal and THAT looks delicious! I have a recipe I've been wanting to try for Cherry Almond Baked I'm inspired! :)

Jamie | My Baking Addiction

What a great idea! I eat oatmeal every morning and never thought of baking it!

Jen @ My Kitchen Addiction

Yum! Is it wrong that I think this would be delicious topped with chocolate ganache?


I just want to crawl up with a bowl of this right now.


I have been keeping an eye on this blog for a little bit even though I am not a mom. I am jealous of the fact that you have people to test all these fun recipes out on. I live with just one other person who doesn't like sweet breakfasts very much and I have two questions. I really want to try it since I love oatmeal.
1. How sweet did this turn out?
2. Would 5 minute quaker oats work?



I make a baked oatmeal that I love, but I will be needing to try this because I have a family who LOVES peanut butter! And basically, you are eating an oatmeal cookie for dinner or breakfast or whatever! YUM!!!!!

ali @ an ordinary mom

Hmmm, we love baked oatmeal but have never tried it with peanut butter! (and I like to make it with honey in place of the dry sugars, though in a lesser amount because honey is sweeter)


Also saw this on Tidymom and now I am going to make it for sure! Mmmmm with blueberries!

Beautiful Blog!!!!!! Simply love it....
I have been keeping an eye on this blog from last few days...even though I am not a mom...but am planning to implement this great idea of baking oatmeal with some raisins ..asap for my hubby dear...

WE love baked oatmeal...been making it for a couple of years is the recipe we used with a couple of variations...
THis one involves leaving part of it on the counter overnight...this helps the enzymes to something that helps with better digestion...if that bothers you, just do it all in on step and bake when mixed...
1/2 cup butter, melted
3/4-1 cup sucanat or brown sugar...I have used both with good results, but use just 3/4 cup
3 cups rolled oats
2 cups milk, kefir or buttermilk- I have used both milk and buttermilk with good results...buttermilk has a slight more tang in the finished product.
1 tsp. cinnamon
Let set overnight in a bowl covered with a tea towel
2 eggs, beaten
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
this is what I do...
add a couple of glops of vanilla (I NEVER measure vanilla)
about 1/4 c. chocolate chips-we like milk chocolate
about 1/2 c. coconut

my friend does:
1/2 cup raisins
OR 1 tart apple diced

Bake in a greased 11x 7 pan at 350 for 25-30 minutes.
I DOUBLE THIS RECIPE AND PUT INTO A 9X13 pan...both because I don't have a smaller pan and I have a larger family....

A Christmas variation is to use eggnog for the milk and add vanilla, 2-1/2 tsp. cinnamon, and 1 tsp. nutmeg...if that is too rich, just add a smaller amount of eggnog...say 1 cup...


Oh how I wish that I had a yummy bowl of this right now!!


I made it and it was SO GOOD!!


That looks so goof! We love oatmeal for breakfast so I'm sure we'd love this too. Thanks for sharing!


Whoops I meant good not goof, haha!


My husband was just asking about baked oatmeal the other day. I will ABSOLUTELY be trying this recipe. Thank you!!!


Oh why oh why did I not see this before this morning, I could have made it for Jacob's special birthday breakfast, oh well. He had Vanilla spice oatmeal (his request). I'm so going to make this, this week!!!!


I think I know what I'm making on this Snowmagedon are too too sweet Amanda! .......and Happy Birthday!


I made this! SO SO GOOD!!!


would these keep a few days or would they freeze well?


Okay, how did I miss this recipe? ADDING TO RECIPE FILE! =) Thanks for sharing.

I *heart* baked oatmeal! Sucanat is excellent in it, and I'm sure turbinado would work just fine too. I also replace some of the rolled oats with steel cut (about 1/2 cup). It's a very forgiving recipe, and there are tons of variations. And, like someone else mentioned earlier, soaking the oatmeal in some sort of "buttermilk" or kefir overnight helps the grain release the phytic acid so it's even more easily digestible and increases mineral absorption.


Looks really delicious. I have got to try and make me this. Thanks a lot!


could this be made ahead and frozen?? anyone tried that??

What a great looking breakfast!!!


I made this yesterday and it tastes great, but it came out a little more crumbly (is that a word?) than I expected. I live at a somewhat higher elevation than most (about 4000 feet) and am a novice baker. Can someone help me adjust this recipe? My thoughts are to reduce the baking powder a little or add an egg, but my preference is to have someone with more experience with such things give me some guidance before I start experimenting.
Thanks in advance!
