Baked Oatmeal

We try to eat a healthy breakfast every day. We usually eat whole wheat pancakes once or twice a week (I make a big batch for leftovers), we have scrambled eggs, turkey bacon, and toast on Sundays, homemade oatmeal with fruit twice a week, and cereal (Kashi Go Lean) the other days.

Sometimes I like to shake things up a bit and make a pan of baked oatmeal for the kids and me.

I know, living on the wild side, what can I say?

One dish of this lasts us for two breakfasts. We all really like this version, made with raisins and brown sugar, and walnuts on my part.


3 cups regular oats
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup ground flaxseed
1/2 cup coconut oil (or butter), melted
2 eggs (or 4 egg whites)
2 cups milk
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
Optional Add-Ins: raisins, dried cranberries, blueberries, apples, bananas, chopped nuts, etc
Optional Toppings: milk, whipped cream, extra brown sugar, yogurt, etc

Preheat oven to 375˚F.
Butter a 13×9-inch pan. In a large bowl, mix all ingredients together. Pour into the buttered pan and bake for 25 minutes.
Serve hot with optional toppings.
