Baked Oatmeal

>> Wednesday, June 8, 2011

I know I have already professed my love with Heidi Swanson's recipes but here is another one I wanted to pass along to all of you.  I have company staying with us this week and since weekday mornings tend to be a bit busy, you know with school and work and carpools and everything, I wanted to have something ready made for breakfast and everyone could grab a bite as they got hungry.  I also wanted it to be healthy so the kids could have some before school and if I do nothing else that day at least I know they had a good breakfast :)
First you need some oats....

Then some fruit

Put it all together and add some milk ( I used half almond milk and half regular)
Then bake.  When served I melted some butter in maple syrup and drizzled it over the top.
Here is a link to the recipe  http://www.lottieanddoof.com/2011/04/baked-oatmeal .  And if you click on Heidi's website the oatmeal muffins she just posted about look great too!  I think I might be making some for this weekend to take camping.  I'll let you know how it goes.

That looks incredible!!!! Healthy and tasty ~ your company will be so delighted :)

I make a similar baked oatmeal dish when I have company. Instead of fruit mixed in before you bake with mine you add pureed fruit on top - typically strawberries.

I need to try one of these baked oatmeal recipes. They look really good. I'm not quite sure my kids would think so.

This looks great! I have lots of blueberries in the freezer from last year's pickings, and my kids love baked oatmeal. Love Heidi's recipes too.

Finally circling back to thank you for this post and the link to the recipe. I baked it for the July Fourth weekend with a few modifications. I needed to omit the nuts (diverticulitis - sigh), but thanks to a bumper crop of raspberries in my garden, I managed to have a nice red-white-and-blue breakfast to celebrate Independence Day. Your idea of using half almond milk was great; it helped overcome the lack of nuts in my version. Oodles of thanks! Have a great summer.
