I’m not much of a cook, so when I do make things they have to be easy – ridiculously easy. (That’s why my husband does most of the cooking at our house.)
When I stumbled across this baked oatmeal recipe, I couldn’t help but get excited. Although it takes a while to cook, it only takes a few minutes of prep time and some stirring.
It’s the perfect recipe to make on those lazy days where you want something hot
but don’t want to spend hours in the kitchen.
- 3 Cups Quick-Cooking Oats
- 1 Cup Packed Brown Sugar
- 2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
- 1 Teaspoon Salt
- 1 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
- 2 Eggs
- 1 Cup Milk
- 1/2 Cup Butter or Margarine, Melted
- 1/3 cup nuts (I like walnuts)
- 1/2 cup dried fruit (I’ve always wanted to try apple, but some people like cranberries, raisins, etc.)
- Preheat oven to 350° F.
- In a large bowl, combine oats, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon (dry ingredients).
- In a smaller bowl, combine eggs, milk, and butter (wet ingredients).
- Stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients. Add any optional ingredients according to taste.
- Pour mixture into greased 9″x 9″ pan.
- Cook for 40 to 45 minutes or until set.

Look At Me Cook!
I feel I should contribute something unique to this recipe other than repeating what’s undoubtedly been shared countless times before. As with any good cooking blog, I included pictures for your benefit.
In case you were wondering if I actually was capable of cooking such a yummy recipe, here is the photographic evidence of my experience.
First, I gathered my materials.
Then, I mixed my dry ingredients together.
And, I mixed the wet ones together, though they look a little bit gross by themselves.
Here’s the “mixture” all ready to go in the pan.
And Voila! My beautiful tasty baked oatmeal – Omnomnom!
Warning: This will be hot and crumbly and delicious.
