Amish Baked Oatmeal


Have you tried Amish Baked Oatmeal yet? Well do it! You won’t regret it. You’ll love that you can make it on Sunday and rewarm it and enjoy it for breakfast for the next few days too (if you have a small family that is, if you don’t, sorry it will go in no time). It’s a hearty, delicious way to start any morning!

I don’t really get into new years resolutions. I mean how often do they actually last longer than a period of two weeks?

I do however believe in a balanced diet. One full of nutritious breakfasts, high protein, fiber packed lunches, a dinner my family can all agree on (that won’t clog our arteries immediately following) and some sort of dessert (key to a balanced diet :), even if it means two miniature candy bars).


I just will never be one of those people that can give up sweets. Addicted? Maybe. Okay with that? Yes.

Baked Oatmeal is One of the Best Ways to Make It!

The great thing about this delicious Amish Baked Oatmeal is that it can fit in to nearly all of the above categories. It’s a nutritious breakfast full of fiber and a fair amount of protein (if you serve it up with more milk).

It’s not high in fat, especially once divided out among 8 servings (sometime I want to try it with coconut oil versus butter, but oh butter how I love you!).

This is a breakfast my whole family can agree on, and it’s just sweet enough that I can actually eat it and enjoy it (versus choking it down like some health foods you may find). It is actually my new favorite way to make it!

Amish baked oatmeal is such a unique type of oatmeal, with a texture and taste unlike any of the microwave, stovetop, slow cooker or Instant Pot versions you’ve tried. So finally an oatmeal that has some structure to it!

It’s not just some baby food mush that slides off your spoon. This stuff holds it shape! We are going places people. Bonus, it’s super easy to make and if you’d like you can even prep it the night before and pop it in the oven the next morning.

How to Make Amish Baked Oatmeal

To make this oatmeal all you have to do is mix oatmeal with a few food staples – eggs, milk, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, vanilla and butter then pour it in a baking dish and let the oven do the rest. So easy! (The order in which I add things is a little different than that but you get the idea :)).
