I remember as a child crying because I had to eat thick and goopy oatmeal. I hated it for years until I discovered the warm goodness of Baked Oatmeal. Over the years, I have tried different recipes for Baked Oatmeal. Most are too sweet, dry, bland, or just gross. This is a tried and true creation of mine. I lovelovelove it and and so does my husband. It tastes just like a warm sweet oatmeal cookie. Let me know what you think!
~Stephanie's Baked Oatmeal~
3 large Eggs
3 cups Oats
3/4 cup dark Brown Sugar (you can substitute other comparable sweeteners if desired)
2 sticks melted salted Butter
a pinch sea salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 teaspoons Baking Powder
1-2 teaspoons Vanilla
1/2 cup raisins or craisins (optional, but it will definitely make it more moist)
1/4 cup chocolate chips or chunks (optional)
Dash of nutmeg (optional)
Mix all ingredients and pour into a buttered 9x13 dish. If batter seems too thick or dry to you, try adding 1/4 cup milk (as needed). Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes (make sure it is not liquid in the center but you also don't want it overdone either).
