Amish Baked Oatmeal

9 servings
40 min

I've been baking all of the oats over here in my little kitchen, but no one is complaining.

Both my husband, and my 16mo son enthusiastically approve and could down an entire batch at one sitting if I didn’t sneak in a bite here and there 😁.

I came across this needle of a recipe in the haystack of @pinterest by @foodlovinfamily. I made a few changes (as I do 🤪). I added 1/2 C of raisins & 1/2 C of pecans. I feel like the flavor and texture of both added a lot. Also, the 2nd time I made it I was out of brown sugar, so I used coconut sugar, and it was still really good.

One of the things I like about baked oatmeal is that it reheats so well. I usually refrigerate or freeze a few portions to pull our for a quick breakfast or snack for my son (or husband, who’s just as big a fan).

I’m all about simplicity and ease, and if you are too, you’ll want to save this to try for yourself!

    • To Aileen - yes T = tablespoon. Just Google, there are many free and printable kitchen charts that provide the abbreviations. Very helpful for those that do not cook or bake often. Enjoy!
