Amish Baked Oatmeal – A Delicious Breakfast

This healthy baked oatmeal is a great way to start the day. Try serving with an iced vanilla latte and yogurt parfait for a tasty breakfast everyone will enjoy.

  • This is a wonderful meal for a group, making 8-9 servings. Easy to cut, individual slices make it simple to serve.
  • Forget the mushy texture, this oatmeal has a great texture and chew.
  • Can be made the night before for a quick breakfast the next day. Cover and bake in the morning or bake at night and reheat in the morning.


  • Oats – Old fashioned, rolled oats are used for this recipe.
  • Eggs – Binder to help hold oats together.
  • Brown sugar – This adds a nice sweetness to the dish.
  • Baking powder – Helps with the volume and texture.
  • Cinnamon – Add a warmth to the oatmeal. You can also substitute with apple pie spice or pumpkin pie spice for a little twist.
  • Salt – Balances the sweetness.
  • Vanilla extract – Another layer of flavor.
  • Butter – I prefer using unsalted, sweet cream butter.
  • Milk – Use whatever milk you have on hand like 2%, almond, or soy.
  • Sugar – Combined with cinnamon, this sugar adds a little extra sweetness to this dish.

How to make Amish Oatmeal Bake

How to store

Store: If you have leftovers, let the dish completely cool and then cover or place remaining baked oatmeal in an airtight container. Store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

Freeze: This does freeze well. Cut into individual portions. Place each piece in freezer safe bags. Freeze for up to 3 months. To reheat, let thaw in the refrigerator and reheat in the microwave.


If you would like to change it up, try adding 1/2 cup of chocolate chips, diced apples, sliced bananas or chopped nuts into the mixture before baking.

Recipe tips

  • If you prefer your oatmeal less sweet, feel free to omit the cinnamon sugar topping.
  • Make sure to use rolled oats or quick cut oats, not steel cut oats.
  • You can tell it’s done when the oatmeal doesn’t jiggle and outer edges will be slightly golden brown.

Amish Oatmeal Topping Ideas

I love this Amish cinnamon sugar baked oatmeal plain but it’s also delicious with a variety of toppings. Here are a few of our favorites:

  • Warm milk or cream
  • Whipped cream
  • Fresh fruit like sliced bananas, apples, blueberries, strawberries and more.
  • Maple syrup
  • Honey
  • Chopped nuts like pecans, walnuts, and almonds.

Amish Oatmeal Bake Muffins

You can make this recipe into muffins by adding 1/2 cup sweetened or unsweetened applesauce to the mixture.

Spray muffin tin with non-stick spray or line with paper cups and divide mixture into 12 muffins. Bake for 25 minutes. Let cool at least 5 minutes before removing from tin.
