I like easy breakfasts, some of my favorites include egg muffins, chia pudding, and this tasty baked oatmeal. This is one of my favorite recipes for a healthy and satisfying breakfast.
When I look for a breakfast option to feed the masses, I often turn to baked oatmeal. It's easy to prepare and serve, you can customize the flavors in many different ways, and it's totally delicious!
How is baked oatmeal made?
This recipe begins with a combination of oatmeal, baking powder, cinnamon, brown sugar, applesauce, milk, eggs, butter, and vanilla extract mixed in a large bowl. You want all the ingredients to be evenly distributed. Gently fold the berries into the mixture. Be careful not to crush the berries.
Pour the oat mixture into a greased baking pan. Put some berries on top in the pattern you want. Then, bake the oatmeal until golden. Remove the oatmeal from the oven and cut it into squares to serve.
Tips for Baked Oatmeal
- Be sure to use old-fashioned oatmeal, not fast oatmeal. The quick oatmeal will go soft on this plate.
- You can make a dairy-free version of this recipe by substituting almond milk or coconut milk instead of regular milk and coconut oil instead of butter.
- This oatmeal can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. When you want to reheat the oatmeal, simply microwave it for 30 to 40 seconds.
- You can also freeze baked oatmeal. Cut the oats into squares, then cover each square with plastic wrap and freeze for later use. Thaw squares before reheating.
Do you have to refrigerate the oatmeal in the oven?
Baked oatmeal contains dairy and eggs, which means it must be stored in the refrigerator. Cover your baking dish with aluminum foil or plastic wrap, then place the oatmeal in the refrigerator until you're ready to enjoy it.
The best thing about oatmeal is that it can be a canvas for any flavor you want.
