Reviews for Baked Oatmeal
"I was searching for a basic baked oatmeal recipe just to have a ratio for liquid to wet ingredients but with plans to doctor it up. This recipe worked great, and as I only wanted it as a base, I cut back on the sugar a lot. Maybe 1/4-1/3 cup is what I used. If I hadn't further doctored up the oatmeal it would have been kind of bland. However, I still think the recipe is solid that way as half the fun of baked oatmeal is the doctoring you do when you eat it - add milk, fresh fruit, some type of syrup, dried fruit, nuts, on and on with the options. For doing that this is a great recipe as is. I really like the texture but I'd still cut back on the sugar in that case.For my purposes this time around I added a middle layer of prune puree I had leftover from another recipe in the middle and also sprinkled walnuts over that. This added the sweetness to eat the oatmeal on it's own.Wow, did my house smell delicious while and after it was baking!I added cardamom spice along with cinnamon, a few tablespoons of chia seeds and flax seed meal to the dry mixture.Made it in a 11x7 pan, and also used 4 tbsps butter and 1/4 cup coconut oil instead of 1/2 cup butter.Makes plenty so we'll be eating this for a few days. Awesome!"
"This was very delicious, but like others have said, a bit too sweet. I like the other suggestions of reducing the sugar and adding banana. I'll try that next time."
"Add finely chopped walnuts and it becomes as familiar as a box of Grapenuts, but sweeter and more delicious. I love making this on a Sunday night knowing That I have breakfast all week. Superb!"
"Great recipe . However, I reduced the sugar to 1/2 cup and added 1 sliced banana. I also doubled the amount of cinnamon."
"Recipe is all that reviews say. Tasty way to serve oatmeal. easy to add fun toppings and ingredients. More or less fluid changes consistency depending on preference. Made as directed and mine cut out of pan in neat squares. I liked it but my family of oatmeal breakfast eaters was not wild about. Thus the 4 star - just not for us."
"This is excellent, my family loves this baked oatmeal. easy to dress up too, with fruit."
"Made this for breakfast this morning, this was very good and it was nice to have a change from regular oatmeal (I don't buy the expensive boxes of oatmeal). I did sub 1/4 cup applesauce for half of the butter and cut down slightly on the brown sugar, 3/4 cup instead of a full cup. Served it with a little milk poured over it, it mostly got soaked up by the oatmeal. Thanks for all the suggestions of all of you who tried it before. I think I will try it with some chopped apples next time!"
"I have been making this for years. However, I just got back from Amish country and while I was there I had a baked oatmeal that had diced strawberries and chocolate chips. So I made this with about 3/4 cup strawberries and a quarter cup mini semi sweet chips. I did add about 1/2 cup extra milk. I also only used 3/4 cups brown sugar and 2-3 tablespoons of butter so it is a little more healthy. I crank the heat up to 400 so it will bake much quicker (a mom of 4!), and it was perfect. 20-25 minutes instead. We love the milk in it as well. We ate so much we skipped lunch!"
"Love this! If I close my eyes and ignore the brown sugar, it's even healthy! Tips: You don't need to add the extra milk that others mention. If you substitute applesauce in place of the butter, it makes it nice and moist (and healthier!). It could use a bit extra flavor though. Next time I'll add some vanilla and maybe a bit more cinnamon."
