Amish Baked Oatmeal

This baked oatmeal is a warm and hearty breakfast perfect for those cold winter mornings. 
I found this recipe for Amish Baked Oatmeal in a cookbook I purchased at a market about 10 years ago, and has been a staple in our home ever since. This baked oatmeal is easy to prepare, only requires a handful of basic ingredients and tastes like a warm, baked oatmeal muffin. 

If you don't like oatmeal because of the consistency, I recommend giving this recipe a try. It's nothing like the oatmeal that you make on the stove top. This oatmeal is baked in the oven and turns out a bit more crumbly with the consistency of bread pudding.  

We like to scoop the baked oatmeal into bowls and serve with a bit of warm milk. This helps the oatmeal cool down a bit from baking and also softens it some. You can serve it as is or add fresh bananas, apples, berries, or maple syrup. No matter the add-ins, you're sure to love this oatmeal. If you have any leftovers, this oatmeal is just as delicious reheated in the microwave. 

These are the ingredient you will need: 

  • Oatmeal: Old Fashioned or Quick Cooking oats can be used. 
  • Brown Sugar: to sweeten the oatmeal. The amount of brown sugar can be adjusted or 1/4 cup maple syrup can be substituted. 
  • Baking Powder: helps to raise and lighten the texture of the oatmeal.
  • Salt: helps to round out the flavor
  • Cinnamon: in addition to cinnamon, apple pie or pumpkin pie spice can also be used
  • Eggs - helps the mixture bind together
  • Milk: I like to use whole or a combination of whole milk and half & half 
  • Melted Butter: You can use salted or unsalted

To start pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine the dry ingredients and set aside. In a separate large bowl, combine the wet ingredients together and whisk.  

Add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture.  

Mix well until everything is combined.  

Pour the oatmeal mixture into a greased 8x8 inch or 9 inch baking pan. 

Sprinkle a bit of cinnamon sugar over the top and bake for 40-45 minutes. 

Serve warm with milk and additional butter, maple syrup or fresh bananas, apples or berries.
