Description

A warm and comforting breakfast treat. A delightful change from the everyday oatmeal.

Ingredients

  • ½ cups Butter
  • 3 cups Old Fashioned Rolled Oats
  • ¾ cups Maple Sugar, Maple Syrup, Or Sweetener Of Choice
  • 2 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 cup Whole Milk
  • 2 whole Eggs, Slightly Beaten
  • 2 teaspoons Pure Vanilla Extract

Preparation

1) Preheat oven to 350° F. Place the butter in a square (9×9 or 8×8-inch) baking dish and place in the oven to melt while the oven preheats. Make sure to keep an eye on the butter, or it will burn! Remove it from the oven once melted.

2) In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the oats, maple sugar, baking powder, and salt. In a separate bowl, mix together the milk, eggs, and vanilla.

3) Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix well, making sure all of the oats are moistened.

4) Remove the pan with the butter from the oven. Pour the oats mixture into the pan and stir, mixing until most of the butter is incorporated, but leaving some unmixed at the edges and bottom of the pan.

5) Bake in the preheated oven until the edges are golden, about 30 minutes. Serve hot with cream.

This baked oatmeal is amazing! I’ve made it several times this winter. The custardiness of the final result is so good. I’ve decreased the amount of sweetener a few times and it was still delicious. Works well with added ingredients as well.

This was so delicious! Made it using exactly what the recipe called for (maple syrup vs brown sugar) and added raisins. My daughter and I LOVED it- and my husband even wanted a bowl after tasting ours. Definitely a keeper recipe- will try adding other ingredients next time (cranberries, apples, pecans, etc).

I wish I could rate this even higher it was that good. MMMMM. Definitely a keeper! Super simple, it’s homey and delicious. It can easily be changed up with dried fruit etc. I did tweak it a little using brown sugar instead of maple syrup, as I discovered I was almost out of it. I used 1/4 dark brown sugar and a 1/4 cup light brown. It was plenty sweet. (You could probably use less if you go the brown sugar route.)I can’t wait to try it made with maple syrup. Thanks!

This recipe will be in my recipe book forever! I first found it in October and I have probably used it 10 times since then. I hardly ever use a recipe twice, but this one is worth it! I always add dried cranberries and light vanilla yogurt to mine. Sometime I will add fresh fruit or nuts as well. I have converted “oatmeal haters” into “oatmeal likers” with this recipe. The last time I made it, I used half the amount of butter and used 2 oz. baby prunes and 2 oz. applesauce instead of the other half, and I added 1/2 cup wheat germ. The vanilla is necessary and brown sugar seems to taste better than only maple syrup. Thank you!

Excellent. A very nice change from mushy, boiled oatmeal. The texture was almost like a granola. I reduced the sugar to half a cup and thought it was perfect. I also added dried, unsweetened coconut and raisins. Thank you so much for the new idea! I will definitely be making this again and again.
