Why I Love This Cinnamon Roll Baked Oatmeal

There is nothing I love more than being able to feed my kids healthy, delicious and filling meals with very little prep time. Just mix the ingredients and bake! You can make it the night before and bake it in the morning.

Finally, it’s downright delicious. Fast and healthy is great, but does it really matter if it doesn’t taste good?? You probably don’t think you’re sinking your teeth into a glorious butter-and-sugar-filled pastry. In fact, you’re guaranteed to lose some major credibility points if you try to sell it that way. Even topped with a drizzle of sweet vanilla, the table is full of smiles. It is crunchy and slightly crispy with brown sugar on the edges. It’s just GOOD.

Ingredients for cinnamon baked oatmeal

Ingredients for baked oatmeal cinnamon rolls

  • barley– Use regular rolled oats and they work best with this recipe.
  • milk– We used 2% milk, but almonds, oats, or other dairy-free alternatives are also effective.
  • egg– If you have an egg allergy, you can add one tablespoon Flax meal. It helps to bind the oatmeal instead of the egg. But you have more spoonable oatmeal.
  • apple sauce– I used regular unsweetened applesauce.
  • butter– I used salted butter. Coconut oil makes a really tasty substitute!
  • vanilla extract– You can also add 1/4 teaspoon of almond extract for a fun and delicious twist.
  • brown sugar– You can easily substitute your favorite sweetener here without affecting the final product.
  • cinnamon– This recipe calls for 1 tablespoon of ground cinnamon. After all it is cinnamon roll baked oatmeal! If you’re not a big fan, you can reduce it by a teaspoon or so.
  • baking powder – Baking powder adds lightness and improves the texture of freshly baked oatmeal.
  • salt– I used kosher salt. This balances the sweetness and improves the overall flavor.
