Baked Oatmeal

A few months ago, as I was learning my way around a slow-cooker, I tried to make Baked Oatmeal.  It didn't turn out so well.  I think it cooked too long.  It came out more like granola.  However, I keep reading about it online and I decided to give it a try again in the oven.  I came across the best recipe for it at Our Best Bites.  I simplified/adapted a bit, but it's really good.  Scott poured milk over his.  I put chocolate chips on top and stuck it in the microwave for 30 seconds to melt the chocolate.  To each his own...

Baked Oatmeal
Dry ingredients:
3 cups of old-fashioned oats
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 t. salt
2 t. baking POWDER
2 t. cinnamon
3/4 cup chocolate chips

Wet ingredients:
2 eggs
1 t. vanilla
1 cup milk
1/3 cup melted butter
2/3 cup applesauce

Mix the dry ingredients together.  Mix the wet ingredients together.  Be sure to let the butter cool a bit before you add it to the eggs.  They'll scramble if the butter is too hot.  Now mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients.
Pour into a greased 9" pie plate or 8x8" pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.  Eat immediately!


  1. That sounds really yummy and I'm going to have to try it for sure!

  2. There's a variation here that I forgot to add...Substitute 1/2 of the butter with applesauce. Using a whole stick of butter kind of negates the purpose of making this "healthy" dish!
