Amish baked oatmeal is a warm, hearty breakfast. Lightly sweetened with brown sugar and topped with a light sprinkle of cinnamon and sugar.
Amish Baked Oatmeal – A Delicious Breakfast
- 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
- Prepare: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray an 8 x 8 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
- Stir: In a large bowl, whisk together eggs and brown sugar. Mix in baking powder, vanilla, cinnamon and salt. Add in melted butter and milk.
- Oats: Stir in oats to combine.
- Pour: Pour mixture in prepared baking dish and spread out even. Sprinkle the top with cinnamon and sugar mixture.
- Bake: Bake for about 30 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool about 5 minutes before serving.
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.
- 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
- 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.
Baked oats have a different texture than oatmeal. Oatmeal is creamy while baked oats have more of a cake texture.
Your baked oats may be soggy if they have too much liquid or haven’t been baked long enough.
Yes, you can bake raw oats.
Baked oats have lots of health benefits, however, the amount of sugar and butter used can affect the nutritional value.
