I’ve been on an oatmeal kick lately, trying different recipes and different types of oatmeal. This Amish Baked Oatmeal recipe is my favorite so far! Baking the oatmeal changes the texture of the oatmeal and it tastes more like an oatmeal cookie.
You make it the night before and pop it in the oven the next morning. It’s super easy and so delicious! My kids prefer cold cereal in the mornings, so I usually make up a batch, cut it into six squares and then freeze the squares and just warm them up in the microwave each morning. It is a perfect breakfast for me, just a little sweet, and the protein and fiber keep me full until lunch.
Amish Baked Oatmeal
- ¼ cup butter melted
- 2 large eggs or ½ cup Egg Beaters
- ⅔ cup brown sugar
- 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1 ¼ cup milk
- 3 cups oatmeal regular or quick
- ¼ cup dried cranberries Craisins
- ½ cup fresh blueberries
- In a mixing bowl combined eggs, brown sugar, baking powder, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt. Mix well, no lumps. Whisk in butter and milk. Add oats and fruit, stir until combined. Pour in to greased 9×9 baking dish.
- Refrigerate overnight, covered. (If you’re using quick oats, you do not need to refrigerate overnight.)
- Bake, uncovered, at 350 for 35-45 min, or until set in the middle. Serve hot with warm milk poured over.
Maria, Two Peas and Their Pod, recently posted a Bruleed Steel Cut Oats recipe that looks fabulous and I’ll be making soon.
Carol, at Songberries, has a yummy Baked Oatmeal recipe that doesn’t require making the night before. Hers is a bit sweeter and my husband really liked it.
Wow Barbara! Thanks so much. My four-year-old granddaughter was recently diagnosed with type I diabetes. We are counting carbs for all of her foods. This site helps a lot.
Do you have nutritional information on this recipe? Or should I do it myself by ingredient?

This looks amazing! I love the idea of freezing it in squares. Since I leave the house at 7am I hardly ever have a good breakfast. Thanks for the idea!

Really nice recipe I must say. It is also very great for health I can say. Backed oatmeal is really very tasty and also good for health. So I will surely try it out. Thanks for the wonderful recipe.

I have a fear of oats as cereal. I think it's because I ate it once when I was real sick and didn't react too well to it.
Yours looks yummy. definitely not the porridge-y type consistency I'm so adverse to! Thanks for a new perspective!
