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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you substitute the eggs in this recipe?

I have not tested this recipe using any substitutions for the eggs. However, some readers have told me this recipe works with flax seeds, and I’ve also found a great article on ideas substituting eggs. If you try any substitutions out, I’d LOVE to hear the results!

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.

Can I freeze Amish Baked Oatmeal?

Absolutely! To freeze this dish, bake it as directed and let it cool. Then, tightly cover and freeze for up to 3 months. When ready to serve, defrost in the refrigerator for 24 hours and then reheat, covered with foil, in a 325°F oven until hot.

Ingredients 

  • 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 ½ teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups milk (dairy or non-dairy)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon butter melted
  • 2 sweet baking apples peeled and chopped into 1/2-inch pieces

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 325° and coat an 8 or 9-inch baking pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  • In a medium bowl, combine oats, brown sugar, nuts, raisins, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.
  • With a small bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, vanilla, and melted butter. Add it to the oats mixture and combine.
  • 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.
  • Serve warm, room temperature… or, my favorite way, cold from 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!
