Baked Oatmeal

My favorite meal of the day is definitely breakfast. I love waking up and coffee in hand start frying bacon or put pancakes on the griddle. I can’t think of many things I love more than when mornings move slow and you can see the sun rising through the kitchen window.  I have shared a few breakfast recipes in the past on my blog, and I believe this recipe is the easiest one yet. Even if you can’t take the time to enjoy a slow morning, this recipe is quick! Not only that but it is so good. I love to make it alongside a breakfast casserole or just eat it alone. It smells amazing in the oven and I like to think it is even good for you!

I have to admit I’m not the biggest fan of regular oatmeal, but this is completely different! I promise you cannot go wrong with this yummy baked recipe.

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups oatmeal
  • 1/2 cup butter (melted)
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • Sprinkle of Cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • Berries (optional)

Instructions:

Mix all together and spread out in a 9 x 13 dish. Bake at 325 for 30-35 minutes.

Serve warm in a bowl! I love to add sliced fruit on top, such as strawberries and blueberries. To make it decadent, pour a little heavy cream or a splash of milk over it. This really softens up the oats and makes it oh-so yummy!

I make this oatmeal frequently at the ranch and love how hearty it is. You could easily make this over night and leave it in the fridge, so all you have to do in the morning is stick it in the oven.
