Two Peas and Their Pod: Recipe for Baked Oatmeal

Thursday, April 30, 2009

Recipe for Baked Oatmeal

I am a cereal girl. I never get sick of it. I could eat it for every meal if I didn't love my vegetables so much:) Cold cereal is good, we always stock up when there is a sale, but I really enjoy my hot oatmeal. It is so comforting! I like it cooked on the stove top or in the microwave, but if I want a special treat, I bake it.

There is something about baked oatmeal that just hits the spot. I use applesauce to replace most of the butter and use less brown sugar than most recipes. It's breakfast so I want it to be somewhat healthy:) I also add in cinnamon, vanilla, raisins, and dried cranberries.

I still don't have my passion for food back yet, but I made oatmeal the other day and my tummy was very happy! Baked oatmeal, I love you!

You can double this recipe if you want to make a big batch, in a 9x13 pan. The 8x8 is plenty for us. Don't forget to play around too, there are lots of fun add ins for oatmeal. Try other dried fruits, berries, apples, nuts, coconut, nut butters, etc. Have fun and enjoy!

Baked Oatmeal

(Printable Recipe)

2 cups uncooked old fashioned oats
1/3 cup packed light brown sugar

1-2 teaspoons of cinnamon (I like a lot)

1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup raisins

Handful of dried cranberries
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 cups milk (I use skim)
1/2 cup applesauce
1 1/2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 large egg, beaten

1 teaspoon vanilla

1. Preheat oven to 375°.

2. Combine the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Combine the milk, applesauce, butter, egg, and vanilla in a separate bowl. Add milk mixture to oat mixture; stir well. Pour oat mixture into an 8-inch square baking dish coated with cooking spray. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden. Serve warm. I always add a dash of cinnamon to my bowl!

Sounds yummy! Maybe I will make this for Josh this weekend! He is a HUGE oatmeal fan. I like it too but for some reason it doesn't agree too well with my body

Sorry to hear you are still not feeling well. Sorry to hear you are still not feeling well. I am a cold cereal kind of girl. I eat it every day for breakfast and sometimes for lunch or dinner :) My boyfriend loves oatmeal though so perhaps I will make this for him.

Maria! Sometimes when I read your posts, it really reminds me of me. I love cereal too!! When there's sale, we stock up on fibre 1 and all bran although I like fibre 1 more. I usually like to make cereal mixes where I add a little bit of oatmeal crisp for some sweetness and some dry oatmeal. This might sound crazy, but I went to target once, just to buy Quaker's oatmeal squares when we passed by one on our way shopping in US. For some reason, it tastes different than the kind in Canada. I love vegetables and fruits too, especially apples. When we do grocery shopping, the chips are for my brother and the apples are for me..haha. I don't bake as healthily (if that's a word) as you do though. It's so much harder and it doesn't always work for me so I just try to choose recipes with less butter or cut some down if I can

What a neat idea! I never would have thought to bake oatmeal before.

Blogger Rachelle S said...

Mmm sounds delish! Do you add milk to eat with it when it's done too?

Another similar recipe I saw, it was cut into bars.

I love oatmeal- I made a "carrot cake" oatmeal that was really good last Fall. My husband loves it with cinnamony apples.

I've never had baked oatmeal, but it looks so simple.

We really like this. My SIL taught me how to make it and she likes to serve it at her brunches with a pitcher of warm milk on the side. So good!

"i am a cereal girl." are we supposed to read this in a sing-song voice to the tune of "material girl"? cause that's what i found myself doing. :)
i love cereal, i love this. what's best about it is that you can make it the night before and then pop it in the oven in the morning. :)

I'm glad you posted this. I've always had this issue with baked oatmeal being too sweet or too indulgent for breakfast (or ever) and hadn't been satisfied with my own tinkerings, so I'm definitely trying your recipe. Thanks!

Never tried baking oatmeal before. I agree oatmeal should be hot and cereal cold and crispy. However, I can only eat it for breakfast past that psychologically I can't do it.

Happy to hear you are starting to feel better.

Mmm, this baked oatmeal looks delicious! I'm so glad to hear that you're starting to feel a bit better--or at least, that your tummy is happy to have this oatmeal in it. Keep getting better!!
