Baked oatmeal is requested multiple times a week in my house. Whenever I say we’re having oatmeal, the immediate response is “are we having baked oatmeal?”
A few months back I was desperate for some new, inexpensive, ideas for breakfast. We were getting tired of the three or four options, so when I came upon this recipe on Money Saving Mom‘s website I was thrilled. It’s so easy to make, and the best part is you make it the night before and just pop it in the oven in the morning. Most times Joel wakes up before me and puts it in for me allowing me time to wake up or feed the baby.
This picture shows just how much we love this stuff. Our family of five cleans the pan. I’m thinking I’m going to need to increase the recipe by 50% so we can have a little bit leftover, maybe.
1/3 cup Butter, melted
2 large Eggs
3/4 cup Raw or Brown Sugar
1 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2tsp Vanilla
3 Cups Oats
1 Cup plus 2Tbs Milk
Beat Eggs, sugar, and butter together. Mix in baking Powder, cinnamon, salt, and vanilla.
Stir in milk and oats. Pour into a greased 9×13 baking pan and cover well. Place in frig overnight. In the morning bake at 350 degrees for 35-45 minutes until set in the middle. If you want to freeze this for later you can either pour it into a greased foil pan and cover well before placing in the freezer or you can pour it into a freezer bag. When you are ready to use take it out the day before and place it in the frig. If it’s in a freezer bag you will need to dump it into a baking pan and cover before you go to bed.
Joel and I prefer it just by itself, but my girls like it served with milk. Either way you are in for a treat!
