I wanted to make a baked oatmeal and chose this recipe because I was out of eggs. I'm so glad I did try it! I really liked that the oatmeal gets most of its sweetness from the dried fruits, not from tons of added sugar. For the fruit I used dried cranberries and raisins, and served it with only a bit of milk on top to reduce the fat content. I think next time I would bake it a bit longer to get more of a toasted oat flavour, but this is a wonderful recipe sure to be made again. Thanks for posting it!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°; butter a medium baking dish.
  2. Add the oats and butter to a heatproof mixing bowl.
  3. Pour 1 ½ cup boiling water over them and let stand 5 minutes.
  4. Stir in the milk, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt.
  5. When well mixed, stir in the apples.
  6. Spoon mixture into the prepared dish.
  7. Cover and bake for 35 minutes, then uncover and continue to cook for 5-10 minutes, until thick and bubbly.
  8. Spoon into bowls (it will be stickier than boiled oatmeal) and serve hot with cream drizzled around the cereal and a dusting of cinnamon.
