Baked Oatmeal Recipe

Oatmeal is incredibly filling and can make a great breakfast to keep you satisfied for hours without a need to snack. It is important to use whole oats, not the quick cooking type.

Whole oats (organic is best) are high in both soluble and insoluble fiber, vitamins, and essential minerals, including manganese, phosphorus, magnesium, iron, zinc, and folate.

Oats are also a great gluten-free whole grain alternative for those on gluten-free diets.

Research shows that oatmeal is packed with health benefits, including better blood sugar control, reduced cholesterol, weight loss, and more.

Here's a hearty breakfast recipe for cold mornings or really any morning.  Filling, healthy and so easy to make ahead and pull out just what you need for a quick breakfast.  Recipe below!

Ingredients 

  • 3 1/2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats

  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

  • 1/4 cup light flavored olive oil or grapeseed oil

  • 3 eggs

  • 1 1/2 cups milk (I use raw milk that has lots of cream)

  • 1 cup raisins (optional)

  • 1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

 

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 10-inch pan with butter or coat with cooking spray. Combine the oats, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon in a large mixing bowl. Stir to combine. Add the oil, eggs, and milk and stir to combine. Add the raisins or nuts if using, and stir once more.

  • Scoop the oat mixture into the greased pan and bake for 30 minutes. The oatmeal should be lightly browned, slightly crisp on top and around the edges. A knife inserted will come out mostly clean with wet crumbs. Remove from the oven and let cool for 10 minutes before serving. Slice into servings or scoop servings with a spoon.

  • We serve with warm milk on top and fruit of all types.  Enjoy!

 

FREEZER MEAL: Let the oatmeal cool completely and then cut or scoop into portions. Store the oatmeal in airtight freezer bags or containers. Reheat in the microwave or oven and pour some warm milk on top.
