I make this on the weekend for the kids to eat through the week. I double the recipe with no problems. It is a great way to use up the applesauce in the fridge.

Easy and healthy! I have made it about 4 times now and completely eliminate the butter. I double the recipe and make it in a 9x13 pan and then again double the applesauce to eliminate butter - so I add 1 cup of applesauce. Then I add lots of cinnamon and use vanilla soy or almond milk and about 1/4 cup of chia seeds. Delicious! Thanks for a great recipe!! Read More

I made this as written plus 1t cinnamon & used old fashioned oats as I didn't have quick oats on hand. I thought it was dry. Read More

EASY recipe and lots of compliments at our church breakfast potluck. I doubled the recipe and it easily fit into the 9x13 pan. Also, I used twice as much applesauce as it called for, added cinnamon for extra flavor, and cooked it a few extra minutes. Success! Read More

This made my whole house smell so good! I added a 1/2 tsp of cinammon and a few handfuls of chopped pecans for some protein. I also baked it in a 9x9 square pan instead of a 9x13...it seemed much too thin to spread evenly in the larger pan, and I like my baked oatmeal to be a little heartier and thicker. This recipe was great, as I felt like it was healthier than others I've seen that call for 3 times the sugar and butter. It didn't lack in taste though - was delicious with a cold glass of milk (and didn't taste like I was eating dessert for breakfast). Hubby and I will eat on this for the rest of the week - thanks so much! Read More

If you follow the recipes with no portion adjustments it's too little for a 9x13 pan. The first time I made it I doubled the recipe the next time I placed it in a smaller pan. Both times we loved it. I think this has become our new standard baked oatmeal recipe. Read More

Baked this in an 8 x 8 pan which is correct size for this quantity. Used 1/2C unsweetened applesauce & 2T butter instead of the 4T butter. Read More

Thank you for a great base recipe.Recipe is very good with no alterations to the ingredients or you can personalize with nuts fruits spices etc... I agree with other reviewers comments on size of baking dish. 9 x 13 is too big. We used a smaller dish. Read More
