Baked Cinnamon Oatmeal

I tried folks, I really tried to like oatmeal.  I made several different ones i the last week and I discarded quite a bit of food because of this.  So I decided to bake my oatmeal instead to see if I liked it any better.

I made Baked Cinnamon Oatmeal for dinner last night.

The consensus is that I liked it baked a thousand times better than on the stove.

It’s a good start of the day, quick grab and go breakfast.  Especially if you are running late or don’t  make the time to have a healthy breakfast in the morning.

So go out and get your oatmeal going.  I have many other oatmeal treats to test out.  In the mean time, What I would like to know is:

What would you add to your baked oatmeal?

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

  1. I love adding fruit and nuts. I only really like oatmeal when I make it on the stove. I make it so it’s very thick, still has it’s oaty integrity and isn’t slimey or liquidy at all. Kind of uh, like baked oatmeal on the stovetop really! I tried to get on the pb wagon but I just don’t like pb or chocolate in oats.

    • LOL. I might have to give your method a try Shannon. I like the fruits and nuts part and agree that as much as I like chocolate and pb, not sure I would want it in my “cooked oatmeal. Unless it’s a peanut butter chocolate chip and oatmeal cookie. Yum.

  2. This sounds delicious! I was never a huge oatmeal fan myself, but I’ve learned to like it as a quick, fiber-rich breakfast since getting on a healthy eating plan. Love that this is baked and able to be portioned . . . might have to give it a whirl soon!

  3. I’ve never tried baked oatmeal…but I’ve seen it popping around everywhere lately so I really should give it a go. The cinnamon is definitely such a perfect pairing for oatmeal!

  4. Marlene,
    I’m a traditionalist, I admit it. I like raisins and brown sugar on my oatmeal. But I don’t usually eat it. My spouse eats oatmeal probably 5 mornings a week, zapped in the microwave and topped with a big ol’ spoonful of PB.
    Thanks!
