I absolutely love baked oatmeal. It has a wonderfully dense, chewy texture. If you tend to like thick oatmeal, you are going to love baked oatmeal.

Because this baked oatmeal is made with old-fashioned oats, it has lots of good nutrition and will keep you full until Lunchtime.

How To Make Cinnamon Roll Baked Oatmeal

  1. Combine the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
  2. Combine the wet ingredients in a medium bowl.
  3. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and add the walnuts.
  4. Transfer to a greased 9-inch square baking dish.
  5. Bake for 28 to 32 minutes. Go a little shorter on the cooking time if you want it to be really moist and longer if you want a drier, chewier baked oatmeal.
  6. Let the oatmeal cool some before adding the glaze.

Recipe Tips

  • If your baked oatmeal is too dry for your taste, pour a little warm milk over it to soften it up.
  • The walnuts can be left out if you have a nut allergy or you can use pecans or almonds instead.
  • Try adding 1/2 cup of mini chocolate chips to the batter for some chocolate flavor.

How To Store, Freeze, and Reheat Baked Oatmeal

Leftovers can be refrigerated in an airtight container for 5 days or you can cut it into squares, wrap it well in plastic wrap and freeze it for up to 3 months. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator and then reheat in the microwave.
