Baked Oatmeal

Here in the Midwest we've been experiencing some really cold weather in the last week. We'd been sort of spoiled with temps in the 30's and 40's but last weekend it just got too darn cold! My girls are big oatmeal eaters, we make it for breakfast at least once or twice each week. It's filling, cheap and I love sending them off to school after they've enjoyed a warm bowl, knowing their tummies are full.

I've made a few other fruity baked oatmeal recipes but my girls always like this simple brown sugar and cinnamon kind better. I love to add raisins to mine but they always enjoys their portions plain with a little milk. Use this as your base and add whichever toppings you like best; dried cranberries, chocolate chips and even coconut would be great additions. It's just as good the next day too. We ate half the pan yesterday and finished it off this morning. It's seriously a great start to our day.

Baked Oatmeal

3 c old-fashioned oats
1 c brown sugar
2-3 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 c milk
1 stick butter, melted
2 tsp vanilla
2 eggs

Combine oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Add in milk, butter, vanilla and eggs and stir to combine. Pour into a greased 8x8-inch baking dish. Bake at 350 for 40 mins or until top is golden brown. Serve immediately with a little bit of milk and desired toppings.


  1. So glad you posted this - I've been looking for a baked oatmeal recipe - looks delicious!

    I know, our weather has been crazy- I live in the NW suburbs of Chicago - this morning it was 1 degree when I woke up!

    1. Thanks for stopping by! I'm in Iowa and we've had way too many mornings lately when the temp is below zero or in the single digits.
