I made this for my granddaughter and she is the one who has rated this. She loves the taste of it when it's new from the oven but after it sits she thinks it could've used a little more sugar. When it went into her lunch she said that it was so very crumbly that it was hard to eat. She was also surprised that it had applesauce in it because she didn't taste that at all. She was hoping I could come up with a way to make it stick together more. Any suggestions would be helpful! Thanks Margaret N!
This is a great base recipe. I've made it 3 times adding dried cranberries and chopped walnuts each time substituting applesauce for the oil and only using 1/4 cup brown sugar for both sugars. (The second time I bought steel cut oats by mistake -- would NOT recommend that.) The 3rd time I mistakenly dumped a container of applesauce in before realizing I forgot the eggs and it still turned out great! We've finished a pan in a matter of days and my eaters are all 4 and under.
I made this for my son he's a fussy eater. He really liked it and so did we. It was almost like a cake nice and moist without being overly sweet. Really simple and delicious. I liked it straight from the oven and we have been eating it cold from the fridge in little squares. I made it exactly as listed and would make it the same again and would try variations with nuts or dried fruit thrown in. A keeper.
This oatmeal is quick easy and feeds my large family which is great. The kiddos and hubby love it. I only make a few minor changes: I use all applesauce in place of the butter leave out the white sugar and add in fruit nuts and seeds. To speed up breakfast I often bake it before bed and then warm it in the microwave in the morning. It reheats great.
This is the best baked oatmeal I have made. I just used regular applesauce since I did not have any chunky. I did decrease the butter to 1/4 cup and just did scant measuring for the sugars. This will be my new baked oatmeal recipe. It's great the way it is and the possibilities for additions are endless. Thank you MARGARET N for sharing your recipe.
I cook for a small summer camp and we are looking for healthy and interesting options for our menu. I never had baked oatmeal before and wanted to try it first for my family before making it for others- liked the idea that this would be more like a bar or cake than sloppy/gummy oatmeal. Good texture and flavor though I would have liked it to be a bit more bar/cake like- took longer than stated to cook but that could be pan size. Will definitely try this at work for a 4H group this week! Update- this has become one of our favorite go-to recipes for camp breakfasts! I love the added protein of the milk (sometimes even sub yogurt) and the applesauce in place of oils/fats. I make it in full sheet pans and the texture is great- holds together well- still best eaten with a fork but can be picked up by hand as well.
Meh. I guess I was envisioning something like a crisp which this definitely is not. I made half with raisins and half plain. The flavor was okay but I didn't like the consistency and ended up eating it with milk. I don't see the value in taking the time to bake it (and adding unhealthy ingredients like eggs sugar and butter) over just cooking it on the stove and adding some milk and honey. I think I will try it again with strawberries and some almonds (to give it a crunch because it was too soft for my taste). My son liked it though.
