Simple Overnight Oatmeal Bake

This is a wonderful BASE RECIPE for overnight oatmeal. We love this as a weekly breakfast and it's great when you have overnight guests and you want a hot breakfast for them in the morning. Make this the night before and omit the kitchen mess in the morning!

Servings 6 people


  • 2 lg eggs
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 c butter or coconut oil, melted
  • 1/2 c apple sauce
  • 1 1/4 c milk
  • 3 c old-fashioned oats


  • Prepare liquid ingredients in a bowl
  • Add oats and sprinkle with dry ingredients (baking powder & cinnamon)
  • Mix until combined
  • Pour into a greased (I use butter to grease my pan) 2 quart pan. If you double the recipe, use a 9x13 dish.
  • Cover in plastic wrap. Press it down on top of the oats so they don't dry out. Refrigerate overnight.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake in a preheated oven for 30 minutes.
