Am I oatmeal crazy? Because in my opinion, that may just be the best kind of crazy.
Now before you all go oatmeal bashing, I think that you shouldn't judge this plain Jane breakfast until you have tried it baked.
I have been making so many baked oatmeal recipes on my blog when I noticed that I haven't actually made just a plain, no frills, baked oatmeal. So this recipe is definitely way past due.
Though this is not my favorite baked oatmeal (which is currently my ginger nectarine baked oatmeal) it is a solid, no fail breakfast.
Okay, actually maybe not no fail. The first time I made this, I forgot to add the sugar. Biggest mistake ever. It tasted awful!
But as long as you follow the recipe, and eat it, preferably warm, this will help you get through the last month of winter.
What you'll need:
- 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
- 1/4 white sugar
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1/4 cup melted butter
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl until well combined. Pour into an 8x8 baking dish and smooth the surface.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown on top.
