Works For Me Wednesday: Baked Oatmeal

One of my goals for this year is to stop buying cereal and switch to breakfast foods that are healthier and homemade. Baked oatmeal is something that is easy to make, healthy, and can be made in advance.
One recipe makes a 9″x13″ pan and will last for several days. I will bake it on the first day and then re-heat it as needed.

Baked Oatmeal
1/2 c butter, melted (I have been using applesauce and it turns out great)
1 c brown sugar (I am trying to cut back on the sugar each time I make it, 2/3 c works fine)
2 eggs, beaten
3 c rolled oats
2 t baking powder
1 t salt
1 c milk
Cream together first 3 ingredients. Add all the rest to creamed mixture. Bake in 10″x10″ or 9″x13″ pan at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes. Can be mixed the night before. The eggs can be omitted.
Variation: use 1/2 c sugar and add raisins.

Microwave: Combine melted butter, 2/3 c brown sugar and eggs. Add remaining ingredients, using only 1/2 c milk. Place in 1 1/2 quart casserole dish. Microwave on full power for 6-7 minutes. Stir several times.

I'm seen a few baked oatmeal recipes, but none with eggs in them. Interesting. My friend puts a dollop of peanut butter on the top of hers to make it more hearty.

Yum! that sounds great - maybe you could cut down the sugar even more by adding a banana - or even eliminating it by topping the oatmeal with a touch of real maple syrup or honey. But this sounds perfect for cold winter mornings :)

that looks lovely! I love oatmeal and quinoa for breakfast but can't eat either unfortunately.

I'm a big fan of oatmeal in the morning - I make it daily and it sticks with me til lunch. I also like to make oatmeal scones but I may try switching up the butter with applesauce and see what happens:)
