We LOVE Baked Oatmeal around here. In fact, it’s one of the most popular recipes on this website. We eat it at least once a week…..sometimes more if we’re lucky. I like to make it in advance sometimes, especially if it’s going to be a hectic morning and I know I won’t have 30 minutes to wait for something to bake.
We also have to eat on the run occasionally and it would be nice to be able to take Baked Oatmeal with us on those days. It’s pretty easy to eat in its original state, but I thought I could make it even easier……so when I knew I needed a meal on the go, I decided to try muffin cups for the oatmeal. It worked GREAT!!! I’ll be doing it more often. It is very easy to eat in the car.
I used the same recipe, I just poured it into 8 muffin cups instead of the 8 inch pan. The recipe makes 4 servings, so each person could have two…..or like Annie, just one. Actually, I could eat them all myself. I might regret it later though. I used cup liners for ease of toting, but you wouldn’t have to do that if you didn’t have any.
These bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Once cool, they come out of the paper very well.If you wanted to make the Fruit On The Bottom Baked Oatmeal version, you could just put your fruit mixture in the bottom of each cup and bake 20 minutes. That might be a little messy for the car though…..unless you like adding “character” to your car like I do.
