For the Food on Fridays carnival, any post remotely related to food is welcome—though we love to try new dishes, your post doesn’t have to be a recipe. We’re pretty relaxed over here, and stories and photos are as welcome as menus and recipes.When your Food on Fridays contribution is ready, just grab the broccoli button (My daughter doesn’t quite have the new one ready, and now a second daughter wants to battle it out by offering her own version! Until they’re ready, grab the big one above or smaller option at the bottom) to paste at the top of your post. It ties us together visually.Then fill in the boxes of this linky tool to join the fun!

Great for a special breakfast or brunch, baked oatmeal is delicious served plain or with a few spoonfuls of yogurt.Here’s the version I’ve made:Baked Oatmeal
- 3 C. oatmeal
- 1/2 to 1 C. brown sugar
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/2 C. applesauce
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 2 eggs
- 1 C milk (rice or soy milk is fine)
- 1/2 to 1 C. raisins or blueberries (but blueberries are way better)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix the dry ingredients in one bowl. Mix the wet ingredients in another bowl. Stir the wet and dry ingredients together and add the raisins or blueberries. Spread in a 9×9 pan, lightly sprayed with nonstick spray. Bake 20-30 minutes. Serve as-is, or top with yogurt or some sort of milk.
Oooh, this looks delicious! I have a peanut butter version, but I’m going to have to try this one. My kids LOVE blueberries!
Peanut butter? Great idea to get some protein mixed in!

I just put in my Baked Oatmeal link for the second time — couldn’t resist since you were posting one, too!
Cool! I’m glad we share a love of the stuff! Will check out your link.

I’m not a fan of oatmeal but this looks tasty. The ingredients could change the mind of my taste buds with this recipe.
Hi, Janis! It bakes kind of fluffy and ends up tasting less like oatmeal and more like a muffin or a healthy cake. Maybe you’d like it?
We love baked oatmeal. It’s so easy and you can make changes according to taste and what’s in your pantry: dried fruit, nuts, coconut, cinnamon, vanilla, maple flavor…there are endless combinations.
Jenny, thanks so much for this reminder that the mix-ins can vary based on what is available. Inspiring!
Ahh..this looks lovely baked oatmeals with the blue berries, though not a huge fan of oatmeal, but I would like to try this.
First time here and has shared a post on grilled shrimps

So glad you have joined Food on Fridays–anyone who posts about shrimp is welcome here, regardless of how they feel about oatmeal! 🙂

Oatmeal is one of my favorite simple breakfast treats. Your version sounds and looks delicious! My contribution today does not have a recipe with it, but it is a story (blush) about my tiny apple tree.
I can’t wait to hear about your tiny apple tree. I have TWO tiny apple trees, and they are indeed tiny. 🙂

I have always struggled with traditional oatmeal – I want to like it, but I just can’t. However,your baked recipe with the blueberries just looks so good! I think I will finally be able to enjoy this good for you treat! I know my family will love it. Thank you for sharing the recipe and for hosting. Have a lovely weekend!
Thanks for hosting Ann! That oatmeal looks scrumtious. I’ve got to try it!
