2 1/2 cups any type of oats

1 tsp baking powder

1 cup milk (or milk alternative)

3 eggs

2 tbsp melted butter or canola oil

1 tsp vanilla

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/4 tsp salt

Ingredients to make baked oatmeal - laid out on a wood cutting board

Choose from one of these four flavour options:

  1. 2 apples, diced, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 cup raisins, 2 tbsp sunflower seeds

  2. 1 cup frozen or fresh blueberries, 1/4 cup chopped walnuts or pecans

  3. 1/4 cup peanut butter (melted), 2 sliced bananas, 1/8 cup chocolate chips

  4. 1 cup canned pineapple tidbits (drained), 1/8 cup dried coconut flakes, 1/8 cup chopped dried mango, 1/8 cup slivered almonds


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

  2. Grease a 9x9 baking dish.

  3. In a large mixing bowl, mix oats, baking powder, and any 'dry' flavourings you are using (ie. nuts, seeds, cinnamon, dried fruit, etc.).

  4. In another large bowl, whisk together milk, eggs, melted butter, vanilla, sugar and any 'wet' flavourings you are using (ie. fruit, peanut butter).

  5. Pour the wet ingredients into the dried and mix well.

  6. Pour oat mixture into greased dish.

  7. Bake, uncovered, for 40-45 minutes (until it is set).

  8. Let cool slightly before eating.


  • Serve warm or cold with milk and/or vanilla yogurt.

  • This dish also travels well. Put it in a glass dish with a tight fitting lid and add a little milk then, reheat at work or school for a late breakfast or even lunch!

  • Refrigerate for up to 4 days.

2 Plates of Baked Oatmeal - one with Apples and one with Blueberries

This is a fantastic recipe to make with your kids. Let them measure, stir and even chop the fruit. They will love being involved and will be more likely to give it a try if they've had a hand in making it.

I hope you enjoy 😊
