What is Baked Oatmeal?

How to Make Morning Glory Baked Oatmeal

For the full recipe, scroll down to the recipe card for a list of ingredients and instructions.

Preheat & Prep

First, preheat the oven to 350ºF then spray an 8×8-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.

Mix Dry Ingredients

Add the dry ingredients to a large bowl and whisk until completely combined.

Mix Wet Ingredients

Place all the wet ingredients (except for the coconut oil!) to another bowl and mix until combined. 

Why wait on the coconut oil? You’ll want to wait to add the melted coconut oil until right before you transfer the batter into the baking dish to ensure that it gets evenly mixed in and doesn’t solidify first.

All Together Now

Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. And then finally add the coconut oil to the batter and mix.

Bake to Perfection

Transfer the batter into the baking dish and bake at 350ºF for about 30 minutes or until the top begins to brown.
