  2. Lightly grease a glass baking dish, and set it aside. Try to get something that is around 8 by 12 inches (20.32 by 30.48 centimeters) or 9 by 13 inches (22.86 by 33.02 centimeters).[4]

  4. In a separate container, whisk together the milk, eggs, and vanilla. You can use another bowl, or a large, glass measuring cup. Beat everything together until the yolks break, and you get an even color. There should be no streaks or swirls.

  7. Pour the rest of the oatmeal mixture over your filling. Gently sway the baking dish from side to side. This will help spread your mixture evenly across the baking dish, and help everything settle.

  8. Bake, uncovered, for 30 to 45 minutes, or until the top turns golden brown. The oats should be set; they should not jiggle much when you move them.

  5. Add the applesauce, cinnamon, milk, salt, and vanilla, and stir until evenly combined. If you don't like apple sauce, you can add un half of a sliced up banana instead.[5]

  6. Stir in the old fashioned olds and baking powder. At this point, try to use a "rolling" motion, so that you are bringing all of the ingredients from the bottom of the bowl to the top. This will help ensure that everything mixes in together evenly. When you are done, there should be no streak or swirls.

  7. Fill each muffin liner with ¼ cup (60 milliliters) of the mixture. If you'd like, you can add some toppings, such as raisins, peeled and chopped apples, berries, or ground cinnamon. Use a spoon to press the toppings into the oatmeal.[6]

  9. Let the oatmeal cups cool before you serve them. This will take about 5 minutes. They are perfect for eating on the go, if you are in a hurry to work or school. If you have any leftover, you can store them in the freezer in plastic sandwich bags.[7]



  • If you don't have any old fashioned oats on hands, try rolled oats; they are almost the same type
  • If the oatmeal is too firm after you bake it, soften it with a teaspoon of water or milk.[8]
  • Consider adding a variety of fruits to the baked oatmeal for more flavor.
