I feel like I have been in a breakfast rut since my boys have been out of school.  We have been eating the same things and it was time for a change.  My boys love oatmeal and eat two packs at a time.  I loved the idea of baked oatmeal and couldn’t wait to try this out for breakfast.

This takes minutes to mix together.  It is quick and easy!  And let me tell you.  It is easily one of the best breakfasts that we have had!


It is filled with all of the delicious things about a cinnamon roll.  Brown sugar and cinnamon give this baked oatmeal such great flavor.

I am not a breakfast person and I could easily eat it every morning!


The cream cheese glaze drizzled on top is the best part!  I mean really.  Isn’t that the best part of a cinnamon roll?  It ended up being the perfect finishing touch to this baked oatmeal.

My kids devoured it.  The entire pan was gone in a matter of minutes.  They said it was the best thing that I have made!

This is the perfect breakfast for throwing into the oven at a moments notice.  It is sure to become a favorite at your house and I know that you will make it again and again!

  1. This looks delicious. I’m going to try it soon, but I’m wondering if it can be doubled and put in a 13X9 dish? Have you tried that? I have to make breakfast for 9 people, so I need lots of it.

  2. Alyssa, this recipe looks delicious. I do, however, have a question about the glaze. The directions say to melt the butter in a pan. Then to whisk the cream cheese, vanilla, and powdered sugar together. Drizzle over baked oatmeal. My question is: do I add the cream cheese mixture to the melted butter or drizzle the butter and the cream cheese mixture over the oatmeal separately? Thanks for the great recipes! Julie
