What Is Baked Oatmeal?

Baked oatmeal is a combination of oats with a variety of other ingredients, such as milk and sugar. To this, you can add a variety of other mix-ins. Finally, the oats are baked in the oven and dished up either in bowls or on plates.

The taste and consistency of baked oatmeal often vary from recipe to recipe. This is because most baked oatmeal recipes contain different ingredients at differing ratios, which can cause textures to be dissimilar. One baked oatmeal recipe may be gooey in the center (similar to that of normal oatmeal), while another may resemble a soft-baked granola bar.

It really just depends!

Now that you know what baked oatmeal is, let’s discuss a few tips for making cookie dough baked oats.

As you might imagine, making cookie dough baked oatmeal includes all the usual suspects for traditional oatmeal, but also includes, you guessed it, chocolate chips!

Follow these tips for making scrumptious cookie dough baked oatmeal the next time you get the craving!

  1. Use old-fashioned oats for thicker, chewier, and heartier baked oatmeal. Choose quick oats for thinner or gooier baked oatmeal.
  2. Only use a blender for your baked oats if your recipe calls for one. As previously mentioned, baked oat recipe results can vary dramatically. Therefore, be sure to follow the directions to a tee to achieve the intended outcome.
  3. Baking times will affect the consistency of your baked oatmeal. You’ll notice that some cookie dough baked oatmeal recipes will call for you to cook the oatmeal for more or less time, depending on the texture you want. Be mindful of this when following recipe instructions.
  4. Lastly, most of the upcoming recipes will ask that you mix in your chocolate chips into the oatmeal before cooking. Still, you should feel free to add additional chocolate chips to the top of your baked oats once baked.

Coming up, we’ve got a handful of different baked oatmeal recipes for you that are inspired by deliciously satisfying cookie dough, such as the chocolate covered cookie dough bites I have on the blog. Each recipe is a little different from the others in terms of ingredients and directions, so be sure to read each one closely.

FAQs

Can I add oatmeal to store bought cookie dough?

You can if you wish. Just know that doing this may be best suited for cookie mix rather than premade cookie dough. Adding it to premade cookie dough may make it difficult to fully incorporate in the batter, and also, may cause the oats to drastically change the texture of your cookies.
