Maple Brown Sugar Baked Oatmeal; a Kid Favorite

Maple brown sugar baked oatmeal is a kid favourite in our house. So many ways to eat it; straight out of the oven or as bar later. My kids love oatmeal; they love instant oatmeal, oatmeal cookies, oatmeal cooked in the microwave and oatmeal cooked on the stove. The kids, however, are often impatient and want breakfast NOW! This is where baked oatmeal comes in handy, I can prep it the night before and bake it when I get up. It is ready in 30 minutes. Or, I can bake it the night before and it is completely ready to serve when they get up, because who am I kidding… I am not getting up at 4 am to make them oatmeal.

The kids love to help me make this as well, I can set them to work while I am making supper and then they can prepare their own breakfast for the next day. They can crack the eggs, measure the ingredients and place everything in the bowl stirring it all together. I just need to assist with locating the ingredients and reading the recipe as they are just learning to read.

Once they have everything all together we decide if they want to eat it fresh out of the oven the next day or if they want to cook it that night so they are not hangry in the morning.

Maple brown sugar baked oatmeal is a kid favourite as wells as a mom favourite. It gives mom a couple more sips of coffee in the morning before things get crazy allowing for a much calmer and more organized morning.

Meal planning

This oatmeal is almost always a part of our weekly meal plan. See an example of how I use this in my meal plan. Usually, it occupies one breakfast as well as a couple of snacks later in the week.

Oatmeal Preparation

Making this oatmeal is fairly simple, I have even mixed all the ingredients together in the pan that I cook it in. I (or the kids) put all the ingredients in a bowl, mix and then pour into a greased pan, then into the oven for 30-35 minutes. I love using a stoneware pan like this one from amazon for baking.

Once out of the oven I love to serve this with a little cream and some fresh fruit. I love it best straight out of the oven, but it is also great to freeze it individually as a grab and go breakfast. Pair it with some fruit and you are on your way.
