Baked Oatmeal

Baked Oatmeal recipe by Barefeet In The Ktichen

Baked Oatmeal is one of the easiest breakfasts I make and luckily, it's loved by every member of the family. As a result, we make it at least a couple times a month. It is simple and filling and the leftovers keep very well in the refrigerator or freezer. Not that we usually have any leftovers, but it's happened once or twice.

Baked Oatmeal
(printable recipe)

3 cups oatmeal
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup raisins
1/3 cup melted butter or oil
3 eggs
1 1/2 cups milk

Combine all ingredients and pour into a greased 8x8 pan. Cook at 350 for 35 minutes. Serve warm.

Side note: The uncooked pan of oatmeal can be stored in the refrigerator overnight. When I wake up, I turn on the oven and bake it while I am getting ready. Yes, I even put it in the oven before it is preheated, just add about ten extra minutes. I love the simplicity of this breakfast!

FREEZER MEAL: Cool completely and then portion into individual servings. Store in airtight freezer bags or small containers. Reheat in the microwave with about a tablespoon of water.

  1. I've never made baked oatmeal before... it looks wonderful.

  2. If you try it, let me know what you think, Pam. Heaven knows, I've used dozens of your recipes. Thanks again!!

  3. Another point, it's really healthy too, besides looking and sounding delicious:)
    I love healthy food, what a hearty breakfast this would make;)

  4. I love oatmeal, but I've never baked it. Looks great!

  5. Have you ever subbed the eggs? Or at least 1 -2 of them? I was thinking applesauce for youngest son has an intolerance to eggs, 1 should be okay in this dish, but not 3. Hmmm.....may have to try tweaking it, looks good!

  6. I made it once without the eggs. I started making it before I realized we were out of them. It was ok and we all ate it, but it honestly just wasn't the same. The eggs help form a thin custard-like layer across the bottom of the dish. So, the texture was quite different. If you try it with applesauce or another alternative to eggs, let me know how it turns out. Thanks!
