Baked Oatmeal

Like I mentioned in my last Menu Plan, I've been trying to menu plan our breakfast's. This was my second trial into Baked Oatmeal, as the first Peanut Butter Baked Oatmeal was a big hit at our house. I liked that this recipe incorporated fruit, and that it made enough for two breakfasts.

I am also sharing this at Tasty Tuesdays, Tempt My Tummy Tuesdays, and Tuesdays at the Table. Please stop at those sites for some neat recipes!

The verdict?
This made a TON! Enough to last three breakfast's for our family. It was an almost cake-like oatmeal, and very sweet compared to how we normally eat our bland oatmeal. My son said about ten times "That was good oatmeal, mommy!" so I think it passes the test of the pickiest eater.

I've made it twice, the second time reducing the sugar down to 1 cup, without any noticeable change, and I used fresh strawberries. It was still just as big of a hit! 

This recipe is now included in my Creatively Domestic's Freezer Meals ebook for sale on Amazon. To view this recipe and many others, please visit (and buy if you're interested) from that site.


  1. That looks really good! Did you serve it in a bowl with milk?

  2. @ Candi-
    We don't really like our oatmeal too "wet" so I served it on plates. The oatmeal is pretty firm, so it cuts into very solid pieces. But milk on top would be yummy!

  3. I also don't like "wet" oatmeal - I've followed a different recipe and eat mine with yogurt - it's the right amount of "milk" without making anything soggy.

    I'll be trying this one and the PB version as well - this has become a HUGE hit at our house. We also tried sliced frozen strawberries and found they worked wonderfully too!

  4. Oh that looks great!! What a great twist on oatmeal. I am definitely going to give it a try - my kids LOVE oatmeal.

  5. Can you use quick cooking oats?

  6. @ Anonymous - I think quick cooking oats would work just fine, but a overnight soak might be too long for them. The Peanut Butter Baked Oatmeal recipe that we like originally called for quick oats, so I wouldn't know why they wouldn't work in this recipe.

  7. I threw this together the other night and it was a hit with our 3 year old, 5 year old and even my husband who doesn't like oatmeal! I halved the recipe and used a combo of instant oats and Irish oats. I omitted the applesauce, but used a grated apple, blueberries and strawberries. I also halved the sugar and used organic cane sugar. It was delish smothered in vanilla yogurt!
