A healthy Baked Oatmeal recipe that will fill the air with the smell of freshly baked oatmeal cookies. Use your favorite dried fruit for a hearty, filling breakfast.
A few weeks ago, we enjoyed a day of 65 degrees weather. We went to sleep and woke up to 15 degree weather! Luckily, I had just seen this recipe for Baked Oatmeal and had the ingredients on hand. This is a great recipe! It smells like a big oatmeal cookie baking in the oven. Bob loved this – he said “it’s the perfect amount of sweetness, and the raisins just burst in your mouth.” The leftovers keep for many days and reheat well. This recipe is definitely a keeper, and I think craisins would be a good substitute too!
My oven is possessed, so I had to bake this much longer to get it to the right consistency, but it was worth the wait! This is originally a Cooking Light recipe.

This looks great, Meg! I think even Aunt Effie would enjoy this “OAT-meal.” 🙂
Great recipe – just made it last night and it was just as good this morning too. I added a sprinkle of cinnamon on top. Yummy! Thanks for the idea!
