Ingredients and Variations

OatmealUse rolled oats or old-fashioned oats for a thicker, chewier texture that absorbs the egg mixture and spices without getting soggy. Quick oats won’t have the same texture and will affect the cooking time.

Sweetener – You can substitute the sugar for your favorite sweetener or maple syrup. If using maple syrup, reduce the almond milk to 1 ⅓ cup.

FruitUse fresh or frozen blueberries (no need to thaw first). Don’t overload with too many berries or nuts. Dried fruit like raisins can be added as well.

NutsAny nuts or coconut will work! Almonds, walnuts, pecans, and even coconut will add a crunchy (and healthy!) bite to baked oatmeal.

Pro Tip: Toast nuts (and coconut) in a dry sauté pan before using to burn off some of the oil and make them extra crunchy!

Topping – Feel free to double up the batch of this super versatile streusel topping for your other favorite baked goods like blueberry muffins, blueberry buckle, or even on top of homemade no-churn ice cream. Omit the sugar altogether or use your favorite sugar-free replacement, if desired.

Variations

  • Try pitted cherries, cranberries, chopped apples, or pears. Thaw larger frozen fruits first or chop finely.
  • Stir in some peanut butter or chocolate chips.

Leftover Oatmeal?

  • Keep leftover baked oatmeal in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
  • Reheat in the microwave covered with plastic wrap and a little water to regain its moist texture. Or reheat in the oven in a small pan with a little water covered in foil until heated through.
  • Freeze individual portions of baked oatmeal for easy meals. Thaw in the fridge overnight and reheat as directed.

  1. I fixed the Blueberry Baked Oatmeal today for this month’s challenge. Delicious! Thanks for the great recipe.5 stars

  2. I made this recipe for the January Cooking Challenge and it was delicious! A perfect warm and hearty breakfast for a chilly morning. I especially like the crumb topping. I added a little dollop of greek yogurt and a drizzle of maple syrup. My family enjoyed this recipe for the whole week!5 stars

  3. This turned out great! It wasn’t too dry, unlike some others have commented. I poured some half and half over it to serve.5 stars

  4. It says this can be made in muffin tins. Did I just miss the directions for that? What would the heat and timeing be for muffin tins?
    I love your recipes and have unsubscribed from two others sites that I did have. You have many more meals that I don’t have to go buy ingredients for one recipe and it will never be used again. I am just a country girl and like that country kind of cooking. You have enough veriations to make a recipe “special” without overkill.
    Thank you so much!

    1. Thank you for your kind words Joy, I’m so glad you’ve loved the recipes. I bake these in muffin tins for about 25 to 30 minutes or until set.

  5. Made this for the January Cooking Challenge. It was really tasty and easy for a houseful of visitors. Loved the texture of the almonds and found any leftovers actually freeze well and can be gently reheated later. Thanks for another great recipe!5 stars
