What is Baked Oatmeal?
Baked oatmeal is a heartier version of regular quick boiled oatmeal. This version comes out delicious with a little bit of a sweet crust.
We love it because it’s easy to make (and reheat) and easily feeds a crowd!
Add in your favorite fruits, nuts, or even chocolate chips!
Old fashioned oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, eggs, milk, butter & vanilla are all mixed together to create the oatmeal.
Brown sugar, oats, and butter are combined and sprinkled on top of the oat mixture for a sweet crumble.
