Baked Oatmeal

Baked Oatmeal with RaisinsWith the weather plummeting everywhere this winter, I thought it appropriate to post a warm and hearty breakfast.   This baked oatmeal is just such a breakfast.  It will “stick to your ribs” and get you through the freeze outside.

Baked Oatmeal with RaisinsI adore this stuff; it’s slice-able oatmeal.  You can eat it on a plate or wrap it in a napkin and eat it on the go.   I interchange the fruit, switching out raisins for other dried fruit or frozen blueberries or sauteed apples.  If you love nuts, add a half cup of chopped walnuts or pecans.  With my handy bag of gluten free oatmeal, I am set until the “arctic blast” that has hit us is gone.

  1. Your baked oatmeal is beautiful! I just want to reach out and pick off a piece while no one is looking. :-) This is something that I can totally make reality on a school day…if I get up right on time.

    1. I hope you do make it…Baked Oatmeal is such a handy breakfast to have in your lineup. You can make it the night before and just warm up a slice in the microwave if you are pressed for time!

  2. Another winner that positively JUMPS off the screen! This looks terrific, doable and something everyone would enjoy! Yum!

    1. Thanks, Ann. It certainly was a good breakfast for those crazy cold days we had here. Florida is supposed to be WARM!!

  3. This looks amazing! I only need to cook for myself, and I’m wondering if this would work well as a makeahead breakfast for a week, and if so, if you’d recommend storing it on the counter or in the fridge? Or possibly if it’s something I could bake, slice, freeze, and then reheat a slice when I need one? Thanks!

    1. This lasts in the fridge for at least two or three days. I don’t know about freezing it, but I think it would work that way, too.

  4. In an attempt to cut out processed foods and limit sugar intake, this recipe was wonderful! I am trying with all my might to incorporate oatmeal in our mornings. I have never liked the smell or texture of it in a ‘hot cereal’ form and my girls feel the same. I used ‘no sugar added’ applesauce and blueberries instead of raisins and it was absolutely delicious! Thank you so much!!!

    1. Thank you so much for taking the time to come back and leave your comment! I am so glad you liked the baked oatmeal.
