The first time I had this treat was at a bed-and-breakfast in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. To me, it tasted just like a big warm-from-the-oven oatmeal cookie! —Colleen Butler, Inwood, West Virginia

"I quadrupled this recipe for a brunch gathering, added 1-1/2 cups mixed berries and 1 tsp. cinnamon, halved the salt. Baked in a 13"X9" pan. Made nice thick pieces, very moist, very tasty."

"This was very good, but I would decrease the amount of sugar was too sweet for my taste. I added dried cranberries and i baked in a 8 by 8 pan, it was very good. Will make this again."

"I make this recipe on a regular basis, but I usually add dried blueberries, cherries, cranberries or a combination of fruit. Great tasting and healthy. Don't forget the brown sugar! P.S. I use an 8x8 pan to bake it in."

"Good. I used the 9X13 inch pan and the oatmeal BARELY covered the bottom. I'd say double or maybe even triple the recipe. I also used brown sugar. This was delicious, and I will make it again."

"I don't know if this is truly Amish, but oh my goodness, is it ever delicious! I followed ingredient list, method, and a 9x13 pan as written in the recipe."

"I loved baked oatmeal and this is a wonderful basic recipe. I've added fruit to it or top with maple syrup and whipped cream."

"Good flavor but nothing to cheer about , Hard to understand why you would use a 13x9 dish I used a third smaller and still had enough size. Would not make again."

"I agree with other reviewers: cut the sugar and butter in half, and change the size of the baking dish. I use 1/4 cup of pure brown cane sugar, and substitute 1/8 cup of coconut oil for the butter (just my preference--healthier, and adds a hint of coconut flavor). I bake it for 20-25 minutes in a glass bread loaf dish. FREAKING DELICIOUS! Only serves 2, maybe 3 people. The 4 star rating is not for taste, but because of the adjustments needed with sugar, butter, baking dish and number of servings. Those need to be pretty close for 5 stars. That said, with the adjustments, this is the best oatmeal I've ever had!"
