Amish Baked Oatmeal

I wanted to make something different and special for breakfast on Saturday morning, so I whipped up a recipe I had been planning on testing for a long time, Amish Baked Oatmeal.

Pin It

It made such a nice breakfast, and was so easy to put together first thing in the morning. I was thinking it would be a great Thanksgiving or Christmas morning breakfast! I think for the holidays, I will adjust the recipe with apricots and dried cherries to make it extra special. Yum!

The adjusted recipe is as follows:


  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup dried cranberries (I subbed raisins.)
  • 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts


  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 dried cranberries and walnuts. Spread into a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes. 


  1. What a great breakfast! Tasty and healthy! I love the vanilla and cranberries and think that cherries would be a great substitution.

  2. This looks so good to me right now, and the healthy is a perk. Looking forward to trying it.

  3. I make this at home and our favorite way to eat it is with a can of crushed drained pineapple. Other favorite add-ins are frozen blueberries or sliced apples.

    This is terrific and anyone who likes coffee cake or oatmeal cookies will like this one, I think.

  4. Will def. being trying this one out. Thanks for sharing yum.

  5. This was great - I did tweak a little to "health" it up...I added 3T ground flax, cut the butter by half and substituted out applesauce. It was dynamite--my daughter thought we should have it with ice cream because it was so treat-like! I will try cutting the sugar a little next time, but it is sooooo good just this way. Thanks for the great breakfast "treat" recipe!

  6. I have a similar baked oatmeal recipe, and it really is a wonderful breakfast for holidays, or when we have company visiting from out of town.

    Happy FF.
