 BAKED OATMEAL

I don’t post about food too often here (my husband is the chef of our family) but I wanted to share our new experience with baked oatmeal for breakfast. My youngest (8) is not a fan of oatmeal at. all. I’m not talking about the mushy instant stuff. I’ve only made old fashioned or steel cut (because that’s what I like) but it’s his very last choice for breakfast and even then he’ll only take a bite or two.

I thought I’d finally try out baked oatmeal. I went with a basic recipe from Taste of Home

It was a HUGE hit. I couldn’t believe he was eating bite after bite but the jaw dropper was when he asked for seconds. This kid NEVER asks for seconds lol! It was such a great texture (I think that was his issue with oatmeal the “old” way) and this has such a great texture – we served it as shown with milk and all of us really, really enjoyed it. I used a bit less sugar but I’m excited to try out some healthier versions. AND take a photo for you next time!

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 cups old fashioned oats
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted

DIRECTIONS

Night Before: In a large bowl combine the oats, brown sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Whisk the eggs, milk and butter in a seperate bowl. Pour into the bowl with oat mixture and mix together well. Cover and place in the refridgerator

Morning: Pour into a greased 9-in. square baking pan. Bake at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until set. It will be golden brown on the edges. Serve with milk.

My friend Becca from Beccas Crazy Boys has an apple cinnamon recipe and My Blessed Life has a pumpkin spice version that looks good!

Just wanted to pass on something that might work for one of you – it reheated great this morning and both the boys scarfed up the leftovers!

  1. I absolutely can’t wait to try this out. Much like your 8 year old son, I have never been too fond of oatmeal and would also take 1 or 2 bites, 3 at the most haha. For so long I had wished that I did like it, maybe because it just seemed healthy. But I love the sound of baked oatmeal and I’m sure my nephews would too, so I shall see how this goes. Wish me luck
