On cold winter mornings in Wisconsin, Mom warmed us up by serving this deliciously sweet cereal. Winters are mild here in North Carolina, but this oatmeal is still one of my favorites.

This was fabulous. Great flavor. I didn't have wheat germ and didn't miss it. The nuts were the best touch. Thanks! Read More

This was really good for a nutritious breakfast. I love anything that incorporates wheat germ so I had to try this. I added more spices - additional cinnamon, nutmeg and a bit of cloves. Read More

Yummy!! I thught this was great. It had a wonderful apple cinnamon flavor and the house smelled great while it was baking. I did use pecans instead of walnuts because I had them on hand. I also cut back on the sugar a bit. My hubby had his with milk poured over the top. I will make this again. My whole family enjoyed it. Thanks for the healthy breakfast! Read More

Nice and flavorful. I "changed" the recipe amount to serve 4 and placed the oatmeal in ramekins. Unfortunately, this oatmeal was a little dry compared to a lot of baked oatmeal recipes I've had before, so maybe I'll add more milk than the recipe called for. Otherwise, it was the right sweetness and flavor. Addition: For a creamier and slightly sweeter taste, substitute the milk with soy milk and increase by at least a half a cup. e.g. in a recipe serving six, increase the milk from 4 to 4 1/2 cups.

Yum! This is not aesthetically pleasing at all (it looks like brown glop), but it sure tastes good. I omitted the raisins and ground up the walnuts in a food processor. I like making this because it gives me enough for breakfast all week--I just microwave a bowl of it each morning. I think I'll try decreasing the sugar a bit next time to make it a little healthier.

I've tried many of the baked oatmeal recipes on this site and others since I run a bed and breakfast. This is by far the best one I have made, and the recipe was requested by guests. I used almond milk to keep the cholesterol level down and I didn't have wheat germ so I simply used extra oatmeal (I used the old fashioned kind and let it sit for an hour before baking). This will be my "go-to" baked oatmeal recipe from now on. Thanks for the great posting! Read More

This recipe was VERY good. My kids love it. Straight out of the oven, it is very reminiscent of bread pudding. I emailed the recipe to a bunch of friends because nutritionally is has so many good ingredients. If you have leftovers, reheat in the microwave with additional milk, as leftovers are otherwise a little dry. I added extra apples I was trying to use up, and more cinnamon than was called for. I'll probably do that again. Read More
