I’ve never heard of Baked Oatmeal until I stumbled upon Lynn’s Kitchen Adventures. She had a lot of recipes for baked oatmeal and I figured it was worth a try. As we all know, oatmeal is healthy but somewhat boring so having a new recipe won’t hurt.
We had it for breakfast last Sunday and we could hardly wait for it to be ready as it smelled so good. I had to adjust the recipe a bit though, since I used a smaller dish. It was just enough for our family of 4. It’s a very easy dish that even the kids can mix.
We used rolled oats so it is a bit chewy. I initially didn’t want to put in chocolate chips but the kids saw what I was doing and they mixed in the chocolates. We tried it both with and without milk and I preferred having it with milk. I also think I’d add more milk and eggs next time, for added calcium and protein.
All in all, it was a great recipe and something I’ll definitely do again. It would be great for breakfast, brunch and snacks. Would you like to try some?
