Tasty Tuesday - Baked Oatmeal

With winter in full swing, it's time to break out the warm, hearty oatmeal for breakfast!  Rather than reaching for instant packet oatmeal, why not mix up a batch of this EASY and DELICIOUS baked oatmeal?  It's also great for brunch parties!


  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup dried cranberries


1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2.  In a large bowl, mix together oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt.

3.  Beat in milk, eggs, butter, and vanilla.  Stir in cranberries.

4.  Spread into a 13x9 pan or deep pie plate.

5.  Bake in a preheated oven for 40 minutes

I made mine Sunday night and just reheat in the morning!  It's good with a splash of milk on top and a cup of hot coffee!

(I also added a few tablespoons of wheat germ and flaxseed)



  1. We love baked oatmeal at our place. It's delicious with yogurt too.
