Oatmeal Bake

I’ve been making this Oatmeal Bake pretty routinely for more than a decade—before I had kids, and back when a batch of it would last me at least a week, if not two.

My husband would take some to work, and I’d snack on them throughout the day. Now when I make it, the girls gobble it up, and I often double it and freeze some so I don’t have to make it as often.

If you like oatmeal, and want to eat it "on-the-go," then this Oatmeal Bake needs to happen in your life ASAP!

If you like oatmeal, but want to eat it “on-the-go,” or just don’t want to eat it with a spoon, this Oatmeal Bake needs to happen in your life sooner than later.

Even though they look like muffins in the picture, keep in mind that they’re not traditional muffins; they don’t really rise.

Also, play around with the extra ingredients you add in; use what you have on hand already!

The amount you’ll get in a batch will also vary depending on your add-ins.

I’ve changed the way I’ve made it over the years a little bit.

I started out baking it in a casserole dish (and would dish it out into a bowl), then I moved on to muffin tins (complete with muffin cups, as you see in the photo), and now my favorite way to make them is in a Brownie Pan (with no liners) since they come out easy enough for little hands to hold.

My point is: make them in whatever vessel you’d like!

If you like oatmeal, and want to eat it "on-the-go," then this Oatmeal Bake needs to happen in your life ASAP!


  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup butter melted (can use butter substitute)
  • 1/4 cup agave nectar or honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons flax seeds optional
  • 2 Tablespoons or more Brewer's Yeast (optional if nursing!!)
  • 4 ounces applesauce one container or one small squeeze pouch
  • 1 apple peeled and grated
  • 1 1/4 milk
  • 3 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts optional, but gives GREAT texture
  • 1/2 cup dried fruit optional; I like dried apples and dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen fruit optional; I add blueberries or mixed berries. If frozen, I don’t thaw before adding


  • Preheat oven to 375f (180c). Spray whatever vessel you’re using with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl stir together all ingredients except oats and add-ins. Once everything is combined, mix in oats nuts and dried fruit. Carefully fold in fresh or frozen fruit.
  • Let oat mixture sit and soak for 30 minutes at room temperature. After 30 minutes, scoop/pour mixture into your pan.
  • Bake for 15-20* minutes or until the tops are golden brown, a toothpick inserted into the muffin comes out clean, and it looks like it's set. Cool completely on a cooling rack.
  • Will keep in the fridge in an airtight container or Ziplock bag for up to a week.

I’d love to know if you make this, so feel free to tell me what you think!


  1. These sound so yummy! I pretty much love anything with oatmeal though so… 😉 I love when you find that recipe that yo continue to make over and over through the years! So nice to have a favorite standby that everyone in the household loves. So smart to add the Brewer’s Yeast if you’re nursing, you’re a genius!
