Baked Oatmeal

This is a simple, easy to assemble recipe to make in the morning.


3 cups rolled oats

1/4 cup whole cane sugar (Sucanat or rapadura)

1/4 cup maple syrup

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1 cup milk

2 eggs

1/2 cup melted butter or coconut oil

2 teaspoons vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, mix together oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt. Beat in milk, eggs, melted butter, and vanilla extract. Stir in any extras you want to add. Spread into a 9×13 inch baking dish.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes.

Suggested adaptations: this is very sweet (and I cut the sugar in half from the original recipe!).  You can easily reduce the sugar.  Use 1/4 to 1/2 cup of any kind of sweetener you like – honey would be a great sub for the maple syrup and whole cane sugar.  You could also add nuts and/or dried fruit.  You can soak the oats ahead of time.
