Maple Brown Sugar Baked Oatmeal is filled with brown sugar, maple syrup, cinnamon, and vanilla and is a perfect autumn or winter breakfast! Make a big batch at the beginning of the week and have breakfast all week long – just reheat and drizzle with a little milk.
Like many of us, I grew up eating lots of packets of oatmeal for breakfast. Oh and toaster strudels. But today, we’re talking about oatmeal. Even now, we give the kids a packet of instant oatmeal here and there, but I really do love making it from scratch best. Even better, I enjoy making baked oatmeal, because it can be made ahead of time and just reheated in the morning rush. I have Zucchini Baked Oatmeal, Peanut Butter and Jelly Baked Oatmeal, and Apple Baked Oatmeal recipes, and now this Maple Brown Sugar Baked Oatmeal to add to the mix!
Maple Brown Sugar Baked Oatmeal is all of the flavor that you’d find in the packets, but is 100% homemade. It’s lower in sugar than most baked oatmeals, and less butter than other recipes I’ve tried, too!
This recipe comes together very quickly. To start, preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9×13″ baking dish.
Then in a big bowl, mix together the dry ingredients – the oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt until they’re well combined. To the bowl, add the milk, eggs, maple syrup, oil, and vanilla. You want to mix it well so the eggs are whisked. Pour the mixture into the prepped bowl and bake for 35-40 minutes. You’ll want the edges to be slightly golden and the middle cooked through.
Finally, serve! I like topping mine with pecans or almonds, some berries, and a drizzle of milk. Other ideas are bananas, any berries, cream, maple syrup, nut butter, walnuts and sliced apples.
As mentioned, this breakfast recipe for baked oatmeal is great for meal prepping a week of breakfasts. It’s also a great addition for a Sunday brunch with friends or a cozy weekend breakfast with the family. They will love it!
