Family Favorite, Baked Oatmeal

This is definitely a family favorite, baked oatmeal. I love it because you can prepare it the night before, and cook it in the morning. I have to also tell you, I am not such a fan of regular homemade oatmeal, but I love this. Try it out, it healthy and easy!

Baked Oatmeal

  • 1 C. oil (or applesauce, or you can use half and half~ all applesauce seems not enough for this recipe, so I wouldn't do more then half applesauce/half oil)

  • 1 1/2 C. sugar

  • 4 eggs

  • 6 C. Oats (Old Fashioned)

  • 4 tsp. baking powder

  • 1 tsp. salt

  • 1 (heaping) tsp. cinnamon

  • 2 C. milk

* we add frozen blueberries that we picked last summer. You can also add any other fruit that you would like.

Combine all ingredients together, in order. Pour into a 9 x 13" pan. (at this point you can put, covered, in your refrigerator to bake in the AM) Bake at 375 degrees for 30-40 minutes, until lightly browned. Can serve topped with butter, brown sugar & milk. We love it topped with milk! (You can also refrigerate left overs, and heat and eat the next morning!)

The total cost of this is less then $2 to make! This feeds my family for 2 breakfasts!

And if you would like to see what else I am doing this week, I am blogging over HERE at Happy to be at Home~ Kitchen of the Week. So all week long follow me HERE and see what we are doing in the kitchen!

This sounds great for cold mornings! How much fruit do you add? 1-2 cups?

Rita- I usually add frozen blueberries, and they are probably a cup to cup and a half. Other larger fruits might take 2 cups.
