Basic Baked Oatmeal With Soaked Oats

This recipe can be cut in half for two servings and baked in a 5x9 inch bread pan, or doubled for a crowd and baked in a 9x13 inch pan. The bake time is the same. This recipe is Nourishing Traditions approved.

Basic Baked Oatmeal
{Soaked Version}

1 1/4 cup yogurt
2 cups old fashioned or quick cooking oats

1/3 cup 
coconut oil or melted butter
2 eggs
1/4 to 1/3 cup whole cane sugar (sucanat), real maple syrup, honey, or regular sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla, optional
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Mix the yogurt and oats together in a container with a lid or a bowl and covered with plastic wrap and set in a warm place or on the counter for 12-24 hours. 

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

In a mixing bowl combine the soaked oats and the remainder of the ingrediants. It mixes best with a hand mixer, but a sturdy wooden spoon also works. Using coconut oil or butter, lightly grease a 8x8, 9x9, or 9-inch round pan. Poor the batter into the pan. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until the edges start to brown. 

Serve with milk, plain yogurt with a drizzle of real maple syrup or honey, chopped fresh fruit, dried fruit or nuts.

Note: Because the oats are soaked this recipe is lighter than the other baked oatmeal recipes here and is less filling. It serves 4 people.

Preparation time: 10 minutes plus 12-24 hours to soak the oats. 
Bake time: 30 minutes. Servings: 4-6.


  1. Just put a half batch in the oven for me and my husband's Sunday Brunch. And the baby will get a taste. I'm looking into better ways to eat grains as I don't think I'm ready to eliminate them all together right now.

    I just realized I didn't half the eggs. Oh well, it will be an eggy version.

    1. Delicious! We enjoyed ours with some strawberries and cream and a nice cup of coffee.

    2. Glad you enjoyed it! Revolutionizing oatmeal, I tell you!
