Baked Cinnamon Roll Oatmeal

oatmeal2The perfect breakfast for a chilly morning!  This cinnamon oatmeal was delicious, but the cream cheese icing is what really added that cinnamon roll flavor. Perfection!  This was the first time I have baked oatmeal, and I really liked the texture it had.  I’ll definitely be doing this again, but next time I think I’ll add fresh apples.

  • 1 cup dry oats
  • 1 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar, packed
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • pinch of salt
  • additional brown sugar for sprinkling
  1. Mix everything together in a small-medium sized bowl.
  2. Pour half into a each of two 1 cup oven-safe dishes, I used Pyrex glass   bowls.
  3. Bake at 375 for 15-20 minutes in the middle rack, move it to the top rack and broil for couple minutes to get the top nice and crispy if you want.  You could also microwave it if you’re short on time; I’d say about two minutes.
  4. Sprinkle with brown sugar and top with cream cheese icing (recipe below).

  1. Microwave cream cheese for about ten seconds to soften it up.
  2. Add powdered sugar and vanilla and mix with a fork or whisk (a fork works just fine since it is such a small amount).
  3. Drizzle over oatmeal.
