This recipe, as written, serves at least 8, not 4. No wonder the nutritional info was sky-high for calories, fat and carbs. Baked oatmeal is a favorite breakfast or mid-day snack for everyone in my family. My changes: 1/4 cup Splenda and 1/4 cup brown sugar (1 cup of sugar is way too much), 1/4 cup melted butter and 1/2 cup applesauce, 3/4 cup raisins, add 1/4 tsp cloves, 1/4 cup oat bran and 1/2 cup chopped pecans. I only bake it for 25-30 minutes at 350. Just right. Not dry. Baked oatmeal is great as a "breakfast-on-the-go" for anyone who doesn't have time to sit down and eat breakfast before going to school or work. A square of it can be eaten cold or nuked in the microwave to warm it up a bit and then, you're out the door. I like to cut a piece in half and have it with a cup of coffee or tea around 3 PM. So Good!!!

I make this frequently. We love it. I vary the recipe each time slightly. Instead of cramberries, I have put in cherries, blueberries, chopped apples, drained canned peaches or fresh when in season. I also use olive oil or canola oil, eliminate the butter and add applesauce, and decrease the sugar by 1/2 to make it healthier.

very yummy, i used half the brown sugar, soy milk instead of regular milk, 1/2 c applesauce instead of the butter and raisins instead of cranberries. delicious

This is one of my all-time favorite recipes! I had something similar when I went to the PA Amish country and changed up this recipe a bit to be more like that one. I use 3 tsp cinnamon instead of 2 tsp. I also use fresh or frozen blueberries (whatever is on hand) and put 1/2 cup on the bottom of my pan and 1/3 - 1/2 cup mixed in with the batter. This helps it be more moist and tastes so good! We also like this served warm with some milk poured over it. Overall, a great recipe and is wonderful for when you have guests over. I have also made these into muffins by adding 3/4 - 1 cup of flour to the batter. Enjoy! We sure do!

I just moved to Pennsylvania (Lancaster County, Amish area) and this recipe is an old old favorite of my husbands family. The card reads by Marge Weaver, 1946. lol Cool huh? Only thing is, it calls for 2 tsp of Baking Soda, not powder. Sometimes instead of cranberries we do raisins and nuts, or during the summer, dried strawberries, dried pineapple or even dried papaya chunks. Layed out in a 13x9 pan, it is done a little crispier and used with milk as cereal, or in a couple small 3x8 pans, as a deep dish goodness. Really wonderful stuff.

We enjoyed this. However, I had to cut the sugar way back to 1/3 c. When I saw that it called for a full cup of sugar I almost gagged -- it would be so overwhelmingly sweet (more of a dessert like another reviewer said) with that much. You'd be eating 1/4 c. sugar for breakfast! (It actually made more like 6 servings, but even at that, it would still be almost 3 tablespoons of sugar per serving) Anyway, with the lower sugar it was a nice alternative to everyday oatmeal. It baked up nicely and we've been snacking on the leftovers. Thanks for the recipe!

This was the first time I made baked oatmeal. I had it for a group of ladies I had over for a Prayer Connection and everyone said they really enjoyed it. Then 2 days later I had my Sister-In-Law (a long time fan of baked oatmeal) and a friend over for some leftovers. My Sister-In-Law said it was the best baked oatmeal she ever had. It was nice and sweet with the brown sugar, and the cranberries just made it a little tart also. I will definitely make it again. It froze well and I just thawed it out and popped it in the microwave.

All 6 of my children LOVED this recipe. It turned out like a soft granola bar. I tried some of the suggestions in the other reviews. We used 1/2 cup brown sugar instead of the cup. We used 1/2 cup applesauce instead of the butter. We substituted soy milk for the milk. We added golden raisins instead of cranberries. So, basically it is a very versatile recipe.
