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
(don’t forget to Pin me for later!)
- 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)

These look SO delicious, I wish my kids liked oatmeal because this would be perfect for school mornings.
I use a lot of oatmeal around here so this is right up my alley.
Oh! Healthy and yummy sounding! Love your pictures!
It looks super yummy =) I love oatmeal and my family is like yours, I have a hard time convincing them to even consider trying it. But since they love oatmeal cookies I make I think they will love this.
I’ve never tried making baked oatmeal before, but I’ve been meaning to for a while. This looks awesome!
Great idea, Trisha. Maybe something to try this summer when the kids don’t want a big bowl of warm food, too.
This looks so good but then again I love oatmeal in any form. Can’t wait to try them.

I love oatmeal, but never would have thought to bake it. Definitely going to put it on my “things to try” list.
Wow Trisha, looks good! I have never made oatmeal baked, might have to try 🙂
