I cut the recipe in half and used almond milk instead of milk. Delicious! Thank you, Jennifer, for sharing this recipe.

A little on the sweet side (my dried fruit was also sweetened) but FABULOUS! Cut salt back to 1/2 a tsp for my taste also. My husband loved it and it is good warm or cold.

I actually had the wrong recipe out for baked oatmeal, but decided to try this recipe. The smell of it baking was wonderful and filled the house with the warm smell of cinnamon. The taste was fantastic. I served it to my grandson first and he did not want to share with his parents. Good thing that it makes enough for all.

Our son and his wife are entertaining a house full of family just before the holidays and, since I love to cook and live just down the street, I've been planning to make several meals, so they won't have to spend time in the kitchen. I never considered breakfast, but can't wait to do take this over and put a couple dishes of it in the fridge, so they can pop it in the oven Saturday morning and relax. I think all they'll need is coffee for the adults and hot chocolate for the kids to top it off!! Sounds perfect!!!

Sounds DIVINE!! But SUZANNE... Really? Healthy? Not by any means! If you want healthy, eat the oatmeal plain

I've made this recipe several times for my family and guests. It is a breakfast treat and is a hit with everyone. Sometimes I use different dried fruits just to mix it up. (Chopped apricots are great alternative.) I toss English walnuts on top once in a while, too. It doesn't matter. Make is suit your tastes or cravings. It is always delicious and satisfying!

I made this for overnight guests. I was unable to find dried cherries so I made it without. It was still delicious and definitely a hit! However, next time I will use less sugar.

I made this with instant oatmeal, non-fat milk, and omitted the sugar. I added dark chocolate chips instead of the fruit. I wanted something healthy for myself to eat, but I would follow the recipe for guests and special occasions. I chilled it in the frig for several hours before baking. It turned out good.

This is excellent! However, I made a lot of changes just because that's what I had on-hand and because I wanted to lower the saturated fats and cholesterol. (But good to know this recipe is so versatile.) I used the following: .5c egg whites, 3c unsweetened soy milk, .5 c fresh blueberries, .5c fresh blackberries, 2c quick-cooking oats, 3/8c brown sugar (we found it to be plenty sweet). I figured the saturated fats are <1g/serving, cholesterol is 0, and about 15g carbs/serving. Thanks for sharing!
