Baked Oatmeal Recipe

Barbara modified this recipe from an old Amish Baked Oatmeal recipe found in a cook book from her collection. The ingredients are basic pantry staples – vegetable oil, eggs, rolled oats, milk, baking powder, salt and sugar.  We always have these ingredients on hand so it’s a great recipe to pull out when you need a last minute warm breakfast.

Barbara’s girls are obsessed with oatmeal of any kind, especially this baked oatmeal recipe. She loves making this the night before so it’s ready to pull out of the refrigerator and put right into the oven.  As a mom, she loves sneaking this heart-healthy, high in fiber grain in their diets. Did you know that oats are gluten-free? This is a great breakfast option for people with a gluten-intolerance.

What’s your favorite part of baked oats?  Barbara loves the crispy outside where the sugar gets caramelized.  She may even eat all around the edges while leaving the center for everyone else. Shhh, don’t tell.

Notes About Baked Oats Recipe

  • Easily modify this recipe by replacing the white sugar with brown sugar or adding simple ingredients like raisins or cinnamon prior to baking.
  • Eat it plain or serve with golden raisins sprinkled on top and with a splash of milk or be decadent and go with a splash of cream or half and half.
  • Any way you eat it, this Baked Oatmeal is delicious. In the rare case that there are leftovers, Barbara takes it to work for breakfast and eats it cold.  The oatmeal should stay good for 4 to 6 days as long as you cover it properly.
  • Make this recipe in a 9-inch pan, a 2-quart square baking dish or a rectangle 2-quart baking dish.  If you use the 2-quart rectangle, it may not take quite as long to bake because the layer of oatmeal is thinner.
  • You could easily make Baked Oatmeal Bars out of this recipe.  Let the baked oatmeal casserole cool completely, and then refrigerate.  Once cold, cut into bars or squares. These are perfect served cold. If you want a firmer baked oatmeal bar, then add an extra egg to the recipe.
  • Barbara often times reduces the amount of sugar to 1/2 cup.  This allows you to add the desired amount of sweetness right before serving.  She loves drizzling with real maple syrup. A little goes a long way.
  • You do not have to make this a make ahead baked oatmeal recipe.  It works just the same if you bake it right away in the morning after preparing.

HOW TO MAKE BAKED OATMEAL CASSEROLE

Mix together all ingredients. Cover tightly and store overnight.  In the morning, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Generously grease a 9-inch square baking dish or a 2-quart square or rectangle Corning Ware dish with non-stick cooking spray. Bake for 35 minutes or until golden brown.

In a hurry? Crank up the oven to 450 degrees F, and keep a close eye on it.  It will bake much quicker but you have to be sure not to over bake the top.  Barbara has been known to do this trick when the kids are hangry – hungry and angry!
