Baked Oatmeal

This is from my good friend Megan, and it is wonderful! The consistency is sort of between an oatmeal bar cookie and an actual bowl of oatmeal. Definitely pour milk over top like you would cereal when you serve it (in bowls). My kids love this. We only use the 1/2 cup of brown sugar (and we use the vanilla since we're using less sugar), and it was plenty sweet enough--if your kids are used to super sweet breakfasts, you might up it to the full cup. Experiment with less (as Megan so aptly said)!

  • 1/2 c. oil
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2-1 c. brown sugar
  • 3 c. old-fashioned oatmeal
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 c. milk
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. vanilla (optional)

Combine all ingredients and spread in greased 8 or 9-inch square pan. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes and serve hot with milk. (Cold leftovers are also good with milk, or you can reheat.)

Serves 6-8 or so.... depends on how hungry those kiddos are and what you're serving with it; my 3 kids and I nearly polished off the pan!
