This Gingerbread Baked Oatmeal is such a great make-ahead breakfast for the holidays!  All the great flavors of classic gingerbread in a comforting and healthy oatmeal bake!

In my opinion there are only 2 kinds of breakfasts worth getting out of bed for; ones that are already made and you just have to heat up or ones that someone else is making for you.  And, in the case of the latter, hopefully they are delivering it straight to you in your warm bed and you don’t even have to get up!

Although I only have 2 oatmeal bake recipes on this site, we eat a lot of oatmeal bakes in this house.  I love them because you can get really creative and add any flavor you like.  I have this ginger peach flavored oatmeal bake that is great for the summer and then the classic peanut butter and banana oatmeal bake that is good for any time of the year!  And now I’m sharing with you my favorite winter time oatmeal bake: this delicious and comforting Gingerbread Oatmeal Bake.  It has all the great flavors of classic gingerbread like molasses, ground ginger and cinnamon.

I have my main oatmeal bake formula pretty down pat these days, but I did make one change to this Gingerbread Oatmeal Bake, instead of using my regular unsweetened almond milk I decided to shake things up a little bit and used the new Almond Breeze Almondmilk Cashewmilk Blend.  It is so perfect for oatmeal bakes  because it is a little thicker than regular almond milk and so creamy!  They have a few different flavors, but the vanilla one gave this baked oatmeal such a great sweet flavor.  It would also be great for smoothies, creamy soups and all of your baking needs!

Ingredients
  • 4 cups + 2 tablespoons old fashioned oats, certified gluten free if necessary
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • ½ teaspoon ground cloves
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • Optional toppings: ground cinnamon, coconut whipped cream or regular whipped cream
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. In a medium sized bowl mix together all of the dry ingredients. In a large bowl whisk together the almond milk, brown sugar and molasses until brown sugar is dissolved.
  2. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until combined. Grease a large baking dish, about 9x13 inch, and pour oatmeal mixture in. Spread the top out with a spatula to make sure everything is even. Bake oatmeal until firm, about 30 minutes.
  3. Oatmeal bake can be reheated in the oven or microwave so you can enjoy it all week long! Top with ground cinnamon and whipped cream if desired.

    I totally agree with you on those two kinds of breakfasts! This baked oatmeal sounds delicious, Izzy! You are reminding me that it’s been too long since I’ve made this dish. I love the gingerbread flavor in here. So cozy for the season!

    Hahaa! We’ve got baked oatmeal on the brain, Izzy! No doubt this is one I love to make and reheat over and over throughout the week. I’ve not tried Gingerbread however, and will have to give it a go! So delicious and perfect for this time of year! 😀

    Baked oatmeal is the best for lazy breakfast people like me! And especially when it’s gingerbread flavored! This looks so delicious and would be a perfect holiday breakfast. :)

    Hahaha, SO true! My top-favourite is the breakfast someone is making for me though, which is why my husband has to get out of bed before me most days 😉 Your gingerbread oatmeal bake looks like the perfect breakfast for chilly winter mornings, I need to get him onto that 😉

    Has anyone tried this with regular milk? I want to make this for someone who has a nut allergy and I am sensitive to soy so I’m wondering how it comes out with cow juice?
