Baked Oatmeal

Updated on February 3, 2015


Cast your vote for Baked Oatmeal

This dish originally came from Lancaster county, from an Amish family farm. The original recipe called for heavy cream and more eggs and was perfect for eating a sustainable meal before heading out to the fields for 6 hours.

A rural Pennsylvania bed & breakfast adapted the recipe and shared with its patrons. A friend of a friend acquired the recipe in this way, and I further adapted it to be a little more heart-healthy and not quite so sugary-sweet.

I recommend it for a holiday weekend with the family. Prepare the day before guests are due to arrive and refrigerate, uncooked, in a covered Pyrex dish.

Cook Time

Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 25 min
Ready in: 35 min
Yields: serves about 6-8 hearty helpings; can be doubled


  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil, (preferably canola)
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs, (beaten)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract, (to taste)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • pinch salt, (to taste)
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 3 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1 cup nuts, (optional)
  • other mix-ins, if desired


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a medium sized mixing bowl, mix all wet ingredients (oil, milk, vanilla extract, beaten eggs, maple syrup) together with the sugars until mixture is uniform.
  3. Mix in cinnamon, salt, and baking powder.
  4. Mix in oats, ensuring all oats are sufficiently wet. Consistency should be slightly more watery than oatmeal cookie dough, unless you put in a different amount of oats.
  5. (Optional) mix in nuts and any other addition you like. See below for ideas!
  6. Grease a 2 quart glass baking dish (can use other sizes and materials if desired) using butter or cooking spray.
  7. Pour mixture into baking dish and use a spatula to ensure it's spread evenly.
  8. Bake for 25 minutes (adjust time depending on size, depth, and material of baking dish), or until a toothpick comes out clean. Should rise slightly and brown.
  9. (Optional) serve with cream or fruit topping.
