Baked Oatmeal Vs. Stovetop

Baked oatmeal is quickly growing in popularity as more recipes are being shared in mainstream media. This method of cooking enables a nice firm and chewy consistency, with a golden, crispy exterior. Many people find this much more palatable than mushy stovetop oats.

This recipe is the perfect solution for chilly mornings when you don’t want to spend a lot of time on breakfast prep. Without having to stand over a stovetop pot of oatmeal, you are free to continue your morning routine while this healthy breakfast bakes in the oven.

Tips & Tweaks

I love oat milk in this recipe but feel free to swap it out for any milk of choice (dairy or non). Dairy milk and vanilla soy milk are great for adding in some additional protein. Several different types of nut milks are available to add unique flavor and nutrient profiles.

If you aren’t a fan of the espresso flavor or you are serving it to kids, it can easily be omitted.

You could also mix an egg into the ingredients before baking. Not only does this add protein, but it also acts as a binding agent to give the oatmeal a more casserole-like consistency.

This meal could easily be scaled up and baked in a large casserole dish for an early morning gathering or work event. This warm and comforting dish is sure to be a crowd favorite and is easy to divide up and serve to several people.

Leftovers can be kept in the refrigerator for a few days and reheated as needed. You may need to add in another splash of milk when reheating to keep the original consistency.
