Baked Oatmeal with Apple and Cinnamon

I had no idea this tasted this good until I had it at my daughter's. It's one of those comfort foods that I could have for breakfast or for dessert. This can be prepared the night before; refrigerated and baked in the morning.

Ingredients:
  • 3 1/2 cups oats or quick oats (not instant)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup coconut (optional)
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 apple, grated
  • 1 cup milk

Method:
  1. Mix ingredients in order given and pour into greased 8X8 inch pan.
  2. Bake at 350 F for about 30 minutes
  3. Serve warm with milk and brown sugar.
 It's a piece of cake to wrap up for breakfast on the way, or lunch.


Good to the last crumb!

  3. I used to make a coffee cake every Sunday morning, but have switched to baked oatmeal. Yummy! I always nibble on the leftovers after church, too! :) I've used quick oats or regular, and add whatever I might have on hand -- almonds, coconut, raisons, ... It's always good.

  4. Beautifully photographed. Sounds and looks really good. I'm thinking maybe heavy cream in place of milk. :)

  5. Can one use apple sauce instead of grating an apple? How much? Looks yummy!

  9. My son in law introduced our family to baked oatmeal. It's wonderful. The kind he makes doesn't have apples but does include lots of raisins.

  16. Rolled (may be referred to long cooking) and quick oats require some cooking time to prepare. Instant oats are prepared by usually microwaving water to the boil then adding the oats, stirring a bit and serving. There is no real "cooking" time. That recipe looks like a 'must try':-) Thanks for posting!

  17. Baked oatmeal is out "Sunday morning special". I make it and let it bake while I am getting ready for church. Then once, it is ready, we each help ourselves, as we become ready. We make ours with chocolate chips instead of the apple and coconut. I have also made it with Saskatoon berries. I have also made this for big groups, such as school camp breakfast. They ALL loved it! But in our family we have to serve it with warm milk poured over top.

  18. Does anyone know the food values of this for people who are on a specific food regimen? It sure would help to know the carbs and etc.....

  19. I just made this and had it for breakfast today. I put it in a bowl, added a little milk and heated it in the microwave for about 30 seconds and then added a little brown sugar on the top - DELICIOUS!! I will be keeping it in my freezer in individual servings at all times.

  23. If you want a nutritional analysis of this or any recipe, try this website. You can cut and paste the recipe in, mark the number of servings (6 or 8) and hit analyze. It's a great help. http://caloriecount.about.com/cc/recipe_analysis.php

  24. Thank you so much for this recipe!! I've wanted to like oatmeal for it's nutritional value and it's "staying power" but I could never get past the texture.
    Well, I just took this out of the oven and I'm in heaven! I poured a little milk over it and sprinkled some maple flakes on top- wonderful!!
    Thanks again- you've made my day :)

  25. I am going to try this. I make a baked oatmeal (steel cut)from at site called the Nourished Kitchen. Soaking the oats overnight shortens the cooking time. I like the addition of coconut and apples in your recipe.
