We love this! It is filling and fairly healthy. I do reduce the butter to 1/4 c., the (dark) brown sugar to 1/2 c., and increase the cinnamon to 2 tsp. I started by making the recipe as written and have made modifications noted above as well as a variety of fruits, both fresh and frozen. I have found the fruits as written work the best. This is breakfast for several days for my husband and I. Yummy!

My husband thought it was one of the weirdest coffee cakes I had ever made. But, since then he has discovered that he loves baked oatmeal!

Love this recipe. I did cut the brown sugar in half (use 1/2 c.). It works great with 1 1/2 cup finely chopped rhubarb and 1 cup blueberries instead of peaches and apples. Will try apples when in season however. When it comes out of oven, I drizzle maple syrup on top. It's good for several days in refrigerator ... if it lasts that long.

This is a hit with my family, I use less sugar than called for (1/2 c.), 2% milk & whatever fruit is on hand. Wonderful hot out of the oven, but excellent when reheated for breakfast the next day.

Very good. I used dark brown sugar which made it even better. Will make it again.

I can't begin to tell you how much I love this breakfast. I have been trying to find an alternative to boring oatmeal and this is it! I've made it at least 6 times now, have switched up the fruits a lot, reduced the sugar at times, made it with almond milk as well as water, and it always turns out great. My granddaughter wanted this for dessert one night she likes it that much. This is a keeper.

My first time making baked oatmeal and it is very tasty. Made recipe exactly as written but in a quest for a healthier version wondering about eliminating eggs and melted butter - not understanding their purpose in baked oatmeal. Has anyone made a version without eggs and butter?

Great recipe! Have made it twice now. First time as recipe stated. Second time reduced brown sugar by half, and substituted frozen sweet cherries for the apple. Hubby & I loved version 2 better. Reheats great the next day.

For me, this is soooo awesome! I love it. I didn't have other fruits so instead, I used 1 1/4 cup of blueberries. At first I thought it was a dessert and realized it is for breakfast. But, it can be eaten for breakfast or as a dessert. I like either warm or cold. Awesome!

Very good. I used grapes, blueberries and strawberries and baked it in a cast iron skillet. Turned out great!
