How to Make Baked Oatmeal
As you can see in the recipe below, it only takes three easy steps to make these baked oats. That first step is perhaps the easiest of them all since you just need to preheat that oven! You’ll bake this Chai Baked Oatmeal casserole at 350 degrees.
While the oven is preheating, combine all the ingredients in a bowl and then pour them into a greased baking pan. Of course, you’ll need some old-fashioned dry oats. To hold it all together, we use nonfat plain Greek yogurt, eggs, baking soda and applesauce for extra moisture and fall flavor. To add some texture, pour in some pecans and golden raisins.
And finally, the flavor! We created our own chai spice blend by combining vanilla extract, cinnamon, allspice, ground cloves, cardamom, ground ginger and black pepper. You can feel free to swap out whatever spices work best for you and whoever else will be eating this oatmeal.
Throw it all in the oven and bake your oats for about 30 to 35 minutes. When it’s finished, let it cool and slice it into squares or granola bars. You can package them up into individual containers for easy grabbing and going! This recipe makes nine servings, so it’s great for your weekly meal prep. Even your family will love these sweet and spicy granola bars!
