I love baked oatmeal on cold mornings, so I came up with a way to share it as a gift. This fresh-from-the-oven breakfast is guaranteed to warm everyone up from head to toe.—Jennifer Bistline, Confluence, Pennsylvania


  • 3 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, optional
  • 1/2 cup raisins, optional
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 cup 2% milk
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. In a small bowl, mix oats, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. In a wide-mouth 1-qt. glass jar, layer the oat mixture, brown sugar, sugar and, if desired, walnuts and raisins in the order listed. Cover and store in a cool, dry place up to 3 months. Yield: 1 batch (about 4 cups mix).
  2. To prepare baked oatmeal: Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, whisk eggs, milk, butter and vanilla until blended. Gradually add oatmeal mix, mixing well. Spread into a greased 13x9-in. baking dish.
  3. Bake 25-30 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Serve warm.
