Simple, Delicious Amish Recipe
I love this oatmeal recipe because it is versatile. There’s no “stick to the recipe or else” admonishments. I hate when a recipe is too fussy that you can’t really deviate from the directions or you risk messing it all up. That’s not the case with Amish baked oatmeal. Think of it as your base to play with. Throw on fresh or dried fruit for a change of pace. Top it with whipped cream or make it into a parfait with a dollop of yogurt and your favorite fruit. Add in some wheat germ for an extra dose of healthy goodness. You know my Wheat Germ obsession–throw in 1/2 cup of that, too, if you want. Sprinkle in cinnamon. I love to add a bit of cinnamon to the batter as I am mixing it up. It smells even better as it bakes. The options are endless and only stop at your creativity.
You can make the full pan, as I usually do, because our two boys and I do enjoy it so much, or you can easily split the recipe in half. If you decide to bake up the smaller amount, you will need an 8 x 8 square pan (a 9 x 9 pan will also work). It can be perfectly halved without any trouble so feel free to bake up the amount that is right for you and your family, without worrying about whether or not the recipe will turn out. It will.
Nothing tastes better on a chilly morning than this Amish Baked Oatmeal recipe, summer, winter, or any season in-between. I’m not sure where this great Amish recipe came from, unfortunately. It’s been a family favorite for years. I’m sure it will become a favorite in your home, too.
