Rhubarb Baked Oatmeal

by Laura on May 26, 2011

It has rained and rained and then rained some more here this spring. So it’s put us in the mood for something warm and comforting for breakfast.  I sweetened my version of baked oatmeal with rhubarb sauce, and then a couple of days later with rhubarb conserve, and scattered the top with diced rhubarb, which roasts as the oatmeal bakes up.   If you don’t have rhubarb sauce or conserve, substitute an equal amount of sugar or any other sweetener you like.

That looks fantastic :) I was just thinking about making a rhubarb baked oatmeal, so I’ll give yours a try. I’ve been making so many things with rhubarb lately, I love it :)

What a beautifully simple dish that I’d imagine would really showcase the rhubarb. Gorgeous!

Me, too! I think I could eat rhubarb in just about anything.

This looks like the perfect breakfast.

Oatmeal is my total comfort food. I have just discovered rhubarb this year! I wish we would get some rain down here in Texas!

And I wish it would stop raining here in Minnesota!

Oh gosh. Rhubarb is one of the great loves of my life. And oatmeal, in any form, is my ultimate comfort food. Right now, baked sounds like the best possible way to consume it. Just beautiful.

Lizzi, we are kindred spirits. I have made some version of baked oatmeal every day for the last two weeks, and rhubarb baked oatmeal with several twists. Rhubarb blueberry was especially good. Our other favorites were brown sugar prune, and maple raisin. New favorite quick breakfast.

This is my go-to rhubarb recipe. Crisps and crumbles are too sweet; this is a perfect balance.

Thanks! I’m so glad you’re enjoying it.
