Baked Oatmeal

The other evening, I was at church, making noodles with some other "church basement ladies". It was lots of fun and I learned some things. I've made pasta before but I'll do much better next time! Anyway, we had lots of egg whites left over and were splitting them up amongst us. I mentioned that I'd probably use some to make baked oatmeal and no one had ever heard of it! 

I make it often and I love having it in the freezer ready to go for breakfast. 

I use the Mayo Clinic's recipe. You can see the recipe and the nutritional analysis at this link.

Mayo Clinic's Baked Oatmeal
Serves 8


    1 tablespoon canola oil
    1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
    1/3 cup brown sugar
    Egg substitute equivalent to 2 eggs, or 4 egg whites
    3 cups uncooked rolled oats
    2 teaspoons baking powder
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    1 cup skim milk


In a good-sized bowl, stir together oil, applesauce, sugar and eggs. Add dry ingredients and milk. Mix well. Spray a 9-by-13 baking pan generously with cooking spray. Spoon oatmeal mixture into pan. Bake uncovered at 350 F for 30 minutes.
My notes: Sometimes I use 2 egg whites and 1 whole egg. I freeze individual pieces, wrapped and stored in a ziploc bag. I pop a frozen piece in the microwave for 60 seconds. If the piece isn't frozen, 30 seconds in the microwave is perfect.


  1. We love oatmeal here. And even though I'm usually up pretty early, I'm not a morning person - it takes me a good while before I'm ready to stand at the stove cooking oatmeal. This will be a perfect solution - I can fix breakfast quickly and easily without having to wait. ;-)

  2. You have mentioned this before and I have yet to try it! Will be making it tomorrow afternoon as I am scheduled many days in the upcoming 2 weeks at the pharmacy (what was I thinking????!!!!!). Thanks for the post. Hmmmmmlove homemade noodles---served with anything (or just butter!).

    1. Our church sells homemade noodles at it's bazaar. We keep all of the "pieces" and a few more for a beef and noodle dinner each year. They really are good! ~Jeanne
