Overnight Baked Oatmeal Recipe

My husband and I spent a long weekend at a bed-and-breakfast not far from our home. The owners shared this delicious recipe with me, which I've made my own after a couple of simple changes.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + chilling Bake: 45 min. YIELD:8 servings


  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3 cups 2% milk
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1/4 cup dried blueberries
  • 1/4 cup dried cherries
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds


  • 1. In a large bowl, whisk together first six ingredients. Stir in oats, blueberries and cherries. Transfer to a greased 8-in. square baking dish. Refrigerate, covered, 8 hours or overnight.

"I love this recipe! Has anyone tried using fresh or frozen blueberries instead of the dried ones?"

"Great!!! I eliminated the brown sugar, replaced it with unsweetened applesauce, used cashew milk and reduced it to 2 cups (to accommodate the extra moisture in the applesauce), added 1/4 cup of chia seeds, and added sliced apples drizzled with honey on top!!! SO GOOD, what a great idea, especially to make and keep in the fridge for a few extra days of breakfast."

"I'm usually a cereal kind of girl every morning but I've been trying to break that. This was a great change! I did use dried cranberries in place of the dried blueberries."

"Fell in love with baked oatmeal! Why have I never had this before... it has a creamy custardy flavor while the top gets crunchy and sweet. This is the perfect baked oatmeal recipe for a scrumptious breakfast - perfect for holidays to share with guests and family. Prepare the night before, pull out and bake... presto! easy and lovely breakfast in the morning."
