Baked Oatmeal

When I saw the delightful breakfast concoction on TidyMom's Blog I was smitten.  I didn't even need to try it to know I would love it! (it sure doesnt hurt that I love everything she makes!)

The directions seemed easy enough for even me… put all ingredeints in a bowl and stir.  Um yeah. I can do this!!

It really is that easy too.

Here is TidyMom's perfect recipe, and when I say perfect I am not kidding.  It is wonderful exactly as is! 

  • 1-1/2 cups quick cooking oats
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter

*I used organic eggs, organic peanut butter, and organic vanilla.  

Next time I would like to try 1/4 cup turbinado sugar in place of the brown sugar.  Cause there will be a next time.  Like, soon.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Put all the ingredients is a bowl and mix until combined.  I used a 8×8 glass baking dish because I wanted a soft and gooey texture.  If you use a 9×13 pan they will be a little thinner and less gooey, but also more familiar and delicious. (think warm granola bars)

Cook for 20-25 minutes or until edges are golden brown.

These are TidyMom's other serving suggestions, and seriously, I can't mess with them.  She is brilliant!

Other serving suggestions

  • slice bananas on top then pour warm milk
  • sprinkle with a few mini chocolate chips
  • add yogurt and a little maple syrup

I would also love these with a fruit puree, similar to what you would serve over waffles and pancakes.  And then a big ole dallop of whipped cream!

This was Colton and Parkers favorite way to eat it. Well, I should clarify. 

This was their favorite way to eat their second helping. 

The first was just baked oatmeal and a fork!  The second was covered in organic vanilla yogurt and honey and raisins.

With as easy as this is, you gotta try it.  With as delicious as this is, you will want to try it again and again!  

And be sure and visit TidyMom and thank her for ruining boring old oatmeal forever. Or, I mean, you could be a lot nicer than me and just say thanks. ;)

    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?
    Thanks!

    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!!!!!

    WE love baked oatmeal…been making it for a couple of years now…here 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
    IN THE MORNING ADD:
    2 eggs, beaten
    2 tsp. baking powder
    1 tsp. salt
    THEN THE VARIATIONS:
    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…
    Enjoy!
