Gluten Free Baked Oatmeal

Almost twenty years ago, we attended a family event in Great Barrington, MA. We stayed at an adorable Bed and Breakfast with my extended family taking up all of the rooms. One of the mornings, the owners served Baked Oatmeal for breakfast. This dish is almost a cross between a cake and a loaf, with all the delicious flavors you’d find in an oatmeal bar. The owners were very friendly and hospitable, and after my whole family’s rave reviews of the dish, they shared the recipe with my mom. While the Bed and Breakfast has since closed, their recipe for Baked Oatmeal has lived on and continues to make a regular occurrence at Sunday family breakfasts and brunches.

Typically, this recipe is made in a loaf pan, and the measurements provided are for that quantity. However, the picture (below) shows the recipe made in a larger dish, with the recipe doubled.

Additional Serving Suggestions:

I like to add milk to the baked oatmeal, and usually finish it off with a little almond milk, which adds to the flavor. Last time I made Baked Oatmeal, I finished with sliced bananas (pictured above). I sprinkled the bananas with a little bit of cinnamon sugar and nutmeg, cooked them for a few minutes, and add them to the baked oatmeal. The dish is very universal, and can be finished with any desired toppings.
