Truly, this recipe for Amish Baked Oatmeal with Apples is comfort food at its finest.

My parents have been visiting this week. And have fallen in love with this dish. I make it at night, and we might nibble a bit while it’s warm, but then it keeps in the refrigerator and is perhaps even more delicious cold the next morning. It is the perfect thing to keep around when you have house guests as it is so easy to make ahead!

While there are many Amish style baked oatmeal recipes (have you tried my Blueberry Amish Baked Oatmeal recipe yet?), this is the one I come back to time and time again.

I have quick cooking oats, can I use that in place of the old fashioned?

You can use quick cooking oats in this recipe, but the texture may be more creamy than if you were to use old fashioned.

Description

Amish Baked Oatmeal with Apples, a simple bread pudding type breakfast casserole, perfect to make ahead and serve on busy mornings. Or warm, straight from the oven on lazy weekends.


Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped (or nut of choice)
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 2 sweet baking apples, peeled and chopped into 1/2-inch pieces

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325° and coat an 8 or 9-inch baking pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine oats, brown sugar, nuts, raisins, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.
  3. With a small bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, vanilla, and melted butter. Add it to the oats mixture and combine.
  4. Spoon apples evenly on the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Then pour the oatmeal mixture over the top, spreading evenly. If desired, sprinkle a few more chopped nuts on the top. Bake in a 325° oven for 40-45 minutes, or until the oats are golden brown and set.
  5. Serve warm, room temperature… or, my favorite way, cold from the refrigerator.
  6. Store covered in the refrigerator.

    1. Hi Sarah! I have not tested this recipe using any substitutions for the eggs. As you know, the eggs bind it together. However, I found a great article on ideas substituting eggs. One idea is to use 1/3 cup of applesauce for every egg – which flavor wise would work well here! I’m going to put it on my baking list to try. If you try, I’d LOVE to hear the results! Here is a link to the article from Huffpost I was referring to: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.huffpost.com/entry/7-ways-to-substitute-eggs-in-vegan-baking_n_55c2558ae4b0138b0bf4ccb7/amp

        1. Hi Tiffany! I love that it works with flax eggs. Thank you so much for letting me know — and I’m glad the boys loved it!
