Today I’m sharing an eggnog spiced oatmeal that makes the perfect comforting and warm breakfast. It’s great both fresh out of the oven on a lazy, cozy day and also just as tasty reheated on busy mornings. You can also double the recipe if baking for a crowd!
Here’s the fun how-to video!!
Baked oatmeal is not only a delicious and filling breakfast, but it can be made so many different ways with just a few ingredients. I’ve done everything from Baked Banana to Pumpkin and Coffee here on the blog. This particular version is made with milk, cream, nutmeg and an extra Eggland’s Best egg to give it eggnog flavor. Of course, you can substitute your favorite eggnog for the milk and cream for an even more indulgent and seasonal version!
The oatmeal comes out soft, not crunchy, so don’t let the bar shape fool you into thinking this is a granola bar. You could cut it in pie slices or even fun shapes for the kiddos!
Like most baked oatmeal, this recipe is straightforward. It starts with the basics – oats, milk, Eggland’s Best eggs, a little sugar, and holiday spices. Thanks to a special blend of feed, when compared to ordinary eggs, Eggland’s Best eggs contain six times more vitamin D, 25% less saturated fat, more than double the omega-3s, ten times more vitamin E, and more than double vitamin B12. Eggland’s Best eggs are also an excellent source of vitamin B2 (Riboflavin) and vitamin B5.
Mix your dry ingredients together first in a large bowl.
In a separate bowl, beat the eggs, then mix in the milk and cream (or eggnog if using). Pour the liquid mixture into the dry ingredients and stir to combine. It will look nice and thick!
Spread into your greased or parchment-lined dish. It fits nicely in a square baking dish or a pie dish.
Bake, then try to let cool slightly before cutting and eating 🙂 You can store leftovers in the fridge in – they are great reheated for breakfast or a snack on the go!
