Tips for making this recipe perfectly

  • I recommend using rolled oats for a chewy oaty texture, but you can also use quick oats if that’s what you have on hand. DO NOT use steel-cut oats in this recipe. It won’t turn out.
  • To make this recipe vegan, use a flax egg instead of an egg. Mix 1 tbsp ground flax seeds together with 3 tbsp of water. Let the mixture sit for 5 minutes to gel.
  • If you’re wondering how to tell when your baked oatmeal is done, It should look browned around the edges, and cooked around the centre. If it looks at all gooey around the centre of your baking dish, then you will need to put it back in the oven for a few minutes. Mine usually takes about 40 minutes total.
  • To make this recipe gluten-free, make sure to use gluten-free certified rolled oats.
