Thank you--baked oatmeal rules!

post #1 of 171
Thread Starter 
I made the baked oatmeal recipe that was posted here a few weeks ago, and it is SO good! And easy, too.

Thanks to whoever posted it! It's going to become our new favorite breakfast, I'm sure.

I don't remember who posted this originally. Please come back and take credit for this awesome recipe so we know who to thank! I'm going to try it with dried blueberries and maple syrup next weekend.

This is what I copied from the original post:

Baked Oatmeal

Not crockpot, but have you tried baked oatmeal? It is freakin GOOD!! It is not mushy at all, more like a cake texture.

1/2 cup applesauce (or veggie oil)
3/4 cup sweetner of your choice (sugar, Splenda, whatever)
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon baking powder
3 cups regular oats
1/2 cup raisins
1-2 tablespoons brown sugar (I personally use the brown sugar splenda)
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon


Beat together applesauce and sweetner of choice. Mix in eggs, milk, salt, baking powder, oatmeal. Beat well then stir in raisins. Pour into a lightly grease pie pan. Sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon. Refrigerate overnight.
The next morning, preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Bake in preheated oven until firm, about 35 minutes. Serve hot.

I like mine served with milk and a drizzle of honey over the top!!

MMmmm sounds good. I have one that is slightly different, and it's one of my family's favorite breakfasts, also. I will post that recipe, if anyone is interested.

Are the eggs really necessary? I would love to try a version without eggs, if anyone knows how to do it...

Yummm I'm going to try this too, probably tommorow though.

Can I use anything other than apple sauce or veg oil. I would hate to put 1/2 cup vegetable oil in there but I don't have any apple sauce. Maybe a mashed banana?????

BG - I make it with coconut oil and it's fabulous.

Jadzia - the eggs bind it together - it's sort of a dense bread pudding consistancy so you would need another binder.

This sounds so good! I am wondering, though, if you use applesauce, do you really need 3/4 cup sugar? Sounds like such a lot. Maybe I will use oil and Splenda. Or else just the applesauce and no sweetener...trying to limit sugar here!

Ok, here it is. It is from a friend, who got it, I think, from an Amish family.

4-5 cups oatmeal (soaked overnight in about 1-2 cups yogurt or kefir, plus 1-2 cups warmish water)
4 eggs
1 cup sweetner of choice (can use less)
3/4 cup oil (can use less)
1-2 cups milk
2 tsp. vanilla (optional)
1 TB cinnamon
1 TB baking powder
1-2 cups fresh, frozen, or dried fruit, such as blueberries, strawberries, cherries, raisins, cranberries, rhubarb, etc.

1. Soak oatmeal overnight in yogurt or kefir. In the morning, preheat oven to 350F.

2. Combine eggs, sugar, oil, vanilla, cinnamon and baking powder. Mix well. Add milk (start with the smaller amount, and adjust to get the consistency you like), and mix again. Add fruit, and mix again.

3. Add oatmeal to egg mixture, and mix well.

4. Pour mixture into a 9" X 13" pan. Bake at 350F for about 1 hr., or until set. You can bake it on a lower temp. for longer, or a higher temp. for less time, if necessary. I've done it both ways.

5. Serve warm with yogurt, cream, milk, or applesauce. Very good cold, or reheated.

The amounts I've listed are flexible. I usually just do this pretty free-form, so it's never really quite the same. It's always very good, though. Feel free to experiment. It comes out quite custardy, and sooo yummy! I just made it for a friend with a new baby.

Ohhhh this sounds good! Would it work with steel cut oats?
post #14 of 171
hehe, I havea different variation too!

6 C oats
4 eggs
1/2 C oil
3/4 C sugar (it originally called for 1 3/4 C but i cut it down)
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 C milk

Mix all ingredients together. Bake in 9 X 13 inch pan for 30 mins (usually takes more than that) at
350 F.
Keeps in the refrigerator 7-10 days (mine didn't last that long!!).
It freezes well.

Those two new recipes will be nice for those days when I can't put the whole thing together the night before. Thanks! Nice to know it freezes, too.

Oh YUM! These all sound SO good, and I especially like the one that I can mix together the night before, so I have a hot, fresh breakfast with little to no effort!

need to do this but will wait until winter. too hot for the oven! I love the soaked one b/c that is how I do it too but I only use about 2 TBSP of yogurt per cup of water and oats.
