I am about the only person in my family that likes, or eats, oatmeal. I can’t understand why because it’s honestly really good stuff. That being said I can totally understand that for some Oatmeal is a weird texture and a total turn off.
If this describes you, I have a solution!
All of the goodness, none of the weird lumpy grainy milk stuff.
Baked Oatmeal is reminiscent of a soft cookie or piece of cake, but probably a bit better for you, minus the brown sugar. Now my picky family members can enjoy it via a cake like substance and I can douse it in some warm milk and enjoy it a bit more old fashioned.
Baked Oatmeal Recipe
- 3 cups of quick oats
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup milk
- 1/2 cup melted butter
- Preheat oven to 350
- Combine your dry ingredients… oats, baking powder, brown sugar, cinnamon and cinnamon and stir. Add your wet ingredients, milk, melted butter and eggs into another bowl and mix. Combine both bowls and stir together until mixed up.
- Spread in a greased square pan (I used an 8 inch glass) and then bake for 40-45 minutes. I layered some warm milk in a bowl and added my baked oatmeal and a little fruit while my son ate his by the square!
Enjoy for breakfast or even an afternoon snack!
PS This isn’t a bakery item so you don’t have to worry about me exploding it all over the kitchen in #fail. This recipe is easy, difficult to screw up, and it’s Scrumdumpintasty. (thanks Can Can for that description)
