I don't like oatmeal and still thought this was very good. It doesn't have that make you gag mushy oatmeal texture and that is great. It was more like a crisp. I can't wait to try again with some blueberries mixed in. I placed in ramikins and baked 40 minutes.
I love trying oatmeal recipes because I decided to teach myself to enjoy it. I've gone way beyond that to truly loving oatmeal, if prepared properly. This is a great way! It is different from my baked oatmeal recipe in that it does not get dry like a thick cookie consitency (and has no oil!) I scaled the recipe to 2 servings and baked in a loaf pan. I used old fashioned oats. I love the texture, the grains soft and wet (as you said, jiggly!) but still separate grains instead of the mush that I grew up with. After cooling my brown sugar topping turned crunchy and was delicious. I think nice variations could include raisins, apples, walnuts, or cinnamon. Thanks for a great recipe!
I love this recipe. Oh and blueberries with oatmeal. Thank you. Perhaps banana nut next time. My wife may like this with peaches. My son with strawberries. The possibilities are endless.
