Amish Baked Oatmeal Recipe
Looking for a great Amish recipe? Amish Baked Oatmeal is Kid #1’s most favorite breakfast food. If he got his way, we would eat this every single day!

I love it because it’s versatile–and because it smells like cookies while it’s baking! Think of it as your base to play with. Throw on fresh or dried fruit for a change of pace.

Nothing tastes better on a chilly morning than this Amish Baked Oatmeal recipe, Summer or Winter! You know my Wheat Germ obsession–throw in 1/2 cup of that, too, if you want. I’m not sure where this great Amish recipe came from, unfortunately.
