Mason Jar Amish Baked Oatmeal

Updated: Oct 10, 2023

After years of searching, I (Marie) finally found an oatmeal recipe that the entire family loves. This has the sweet crunch of a hearty oatmeal cookie and when paired with fresh fruit and milk makes for a fabulous warm breakfast. Prepare these jars in advance and you have a quick, well-loved, oatmeal breakfast at your fingertips.

Amish baked oatmeal is a traditional and comforting Amish breakfast made like a casserole. Unlike regular oatmeal, which is made on the stovetop and has a porridge-like consistency, baked oatmeal is made in the oven and has a crumbly texture and is reminiscent of an oatmeal cookie.

I (Emmaline) am very excited to try this recipe out on my husband. He works as a project manager in the construction industry and needs a hearty breakfast every morning to keep him going for the hours before lunch. For the past 22 years of our marriage, he has preferred Oatmeal. Sure, a few times I’ve tried to make something else for him to eat, but he says he gets hungry too fast. Nothing sticks with him like good ole’ oatmeal.

Update: I would like to report that my husband loved this recipe and we are adding this oatmeal variation to our weekly breakfast routine. Amish Baked Oatmeal is such a unique type of oatmeal, with a texture and taste unlike any of the microwave, stovetop, slow cooker, or overnight oat versions you’ve tried.

Finally, oatmeal that has some structure to it!
