Amish Baked Oatmeal {with Apples and Cinnamon}

Amish baked oatmeal is one of those serious comfort foods in the winter time.

I don’t exactly know why it is called Amish baked oatmeal.  I am assuming it is a major staple in Amish homes.  There are tons of recipes out there on how to make the dish, but today I thought i’d share my spin on it.

Baked oatmeal is very versatile.  This recipe incorporates apples and cinnamon in it.  For some reason we seem to always have apples looking like they are on their way out, so it is a perfect way to use up those apples the kids didn’t quite get to in time.

The other thing with baked oatmeal is that you can serve it how you want.  Serve it hot, serve it cold.  Serve it with milk, serve it with maple syrup, or without anything.  Make it the night before or make it the morning of.  Prepare it the night before and then cook it in the morning if you prefer.

For our house, I like to cook it the night before, and we like to eat it cold the next morning.  The reason I cook it the night before is because my kids are those type of kids who jump out of bed and the minute they are up ask what’s for breakfast?  And you know, before I’ve had my morning tea or coffee, I’m one of those moms who walks around in zombie-state.

I really want to be one of those moms who hops out of bed hours before the kids wake up, singing all the way.  But I’m not.  I’m just not.  I keep holding out that one day I will be, but I feel like it is going to happen when it’s too late.  You know, when the kids have moved out of the house.

So we bake the oatmeal the night before.  Everyone is happy.  And the kids love it cold.

Also, we are trying to limit our cereal intake.  My kids LOVE cereal.  And truth be told, I love the convenience.  But it’s a box of empty calories.  Even the less-sugary ones are full of sugar.  It isn’t really cheap, either.  I mean, we buy the knock off brands, but still.  Oatmeal is so much cheaper.

This is a frugal breakfast to make.  I’ve added flax seed, but you could definitely leave it out for a cheaper dish. You can also cut back the sugar to 1/2 a cup but I find with the 3/4 cup we don’t put any maple syrup or sugar on to as it is sweet enough as it is. This dish is incredibly easy too.  I love any recipe that allows me to mix everything in the same bowl.

So, Anyways, let’s get to this apple cinnamon baked oatmeal already!


Preheat the oven to 350 Farenheit.

Crack two eggs in a big bowl and whisk them.  Add the brown sugar and stir well. Mix in the baking powder, cinnamon, vanilla, and salt.

Melt the butter.  Add it in, then add the milk in. Add the oats and flaxseed.  Mix again.  (Do you see a theme here? add, mix, add mix….)

Pour into a greased pan.  I like to use a pie dish, but you can use any casserole dish that is roughly a 9 x 9 or 8 x 8 size.


Bake for 30 minutes.  Let cool.  and eat!
