- 1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- A pinch of salt
- 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon raisins
- 1 tablespoon chopped walnuts
1. Preheat Your Oven
Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Ensure your oven rack is in the middle position.
2. Prepare the Baking Dish
Use a small oven-safe ramekin or dish (approximately 8-ounce capacity) and lightly grease it with cooking spray or a touch of butter to prevent sticking.
3. Combine Dry Ingredients
In a mixing bowl, combine the old-fashioned rolled oats, brown sugar, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, and a pinch of salt. Mix these dry ingredients together until they are well incorporated.
4. Add Wet Ingredients
Add the unsweetened applesauce, milk (use your choice of dairy or non-dairy milk), and vanilla extract to the dry mixture. Stir until everything is well combined.
5. Fold in the Goodness
Gently fold in the raisins and chopped walnuts (if using). The raisins will bring a natural sweetness, and the walnuts add a delightful crunch to your baked oatmeal.

I haven’t posted a new baked oatmeal recipe in quite some time, so I proffer this one to remedy that issue!
Although I typically opt for stovetop oatmeal – and most recently steel cut over traditional rolled oats – every now and then I’ll make myself a souffle-like baked oatmeal. An egg white and a bit of baking powder allow the oatmeal to puff up in the oven without becoming too dense, and the flavor/add-in options are endless.
With this go-around, I decided on an oatmeal raisin cookie-inspired flavor profile and was more than pleased with the results.
Now, this is definitely breakfast and not dessert… in other words, this baked oatmeal pays tribute to the flavors and texture of oatmeal raisin cookies while remaining a healthful way to start your day.
If you’d like a bowl of baked oatmeal on rushed weekday mornings, you could certainly try baking a few over the weekend and reheating them throughout the week. Although I haven’t personally tried this technique – and therefore cannot testify to how the reheated oatmeal is – I bet that it works just fine.
My typical bowl of stovetop oats is almost always crowned with a spoonful of almond or peanut butter, but this particular baked oatmeal just begs for a generous drizzle of maple syrup!
