Scrumptious Baked Oatmeal

The first time I heard “baked oatmeal” I had to stop and think about it. Was that a good thing or a bad thing? Well, I couldn’t make an informed decision without trying it first – GOOD THING!!

It almost felt like I was eating dessert for breakfast, but with some really good things for you in it. It is a very hearty breakfast with some good brain food for the kiddos. It is important they get their protein in the morning and this oatmeal has at least 8 grams of protein.

The best part of baked oatmeal is that it is easy to put together, the leftovers can last a long time, and it smells great! In fact, I can smell it now as it is baking in my own oven. Nothing better on a chilly Texas morning.

Scrumptious Baked Oatmeal

Step 1: Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees

Step 2: Gather Ingredients

1  1/2 cups quick cooking oats
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
1 tsp pure vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon (more or less depending on your likes)
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup melted butter
1/2 cup peanut butter

Step 3: Begin mixing up your ingredients.

Step 4: Butter a 8 x 8 pan, or a 7 x 9 pan.

Step 5: Spread mixture into pan.

Step 6: Bake for 20 to 25 minutes,  until it is golden brown.

Serve plain for a crumbly oatmeal, or with warm milk for a creamy oatmeal. Enjoy!!!!

    Yummy! I love that you can make this ahead of time and then use the leftovers all week. Perfect for me since I am always too rushed in the morning to actually make something! Thanks for sharing!

    Ahhh! I’m totally making this for my family during Christmas. I’ve venturing out this year and “domesticating” myself. Cooking more and trying new things! Do you bake a ham on Christmas? Excited to see your Christmas dishes!

    • Sarah, That is great! I am going to do the 12 Days of Christmas Goodies right before Christmas. I don’t usually do a ham, since the baby I eat Prime Rib. I have always been a turkey kind of girl, until pregnant, and then I couldn’t stand any type of poultry – only red meat – thus the Prime Rib. I can always give you some good recipes.

  3. heck Ya! I gotta try this!
