Welcome to #ChristmasSweetsWeek 2020! Co-hosted by Terri from Love and Confections and Christie from A Kitchen Hoor’s Adventures! What better way to celebrate the holidays than with food and fun? 21 bloggers from around the country have come together to share some of their favorite sweet Christmas recipes!! Deck the halls and get ready for very merry sweet treats, like fudge, cookies, Christmas morning breakfasts, layer cakes, cocoa, and more! Follow along on social media with our #ChristmasSweetsWeek hashtag. Happy Holidays!

This is a wonderful baked oatmeal variation - it's absolutely perfect for the Holidays! It is chock full of warm spices and tastes just like a big soft oatmeal gingerbread cookie! If you want a little extra sweet you can make the optional icing and drizzle over the top. I didn't think it really needed it, but it would be a nice touch and would look very pretty.

I love how versatile baked oatmeal recipes are - so many flavor options out there; if you love baked oatmeal as much as we do, and you love the flavors in gingerbread definitely give this one a try!

Gingerbread Baked Oatmeal

2 cups milk
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
3 large eggs
3 tablespoons molasses
1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste or vanilla extract
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
3 cups old fashioned rolled oats
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves

Icing (optional)
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 teaspoons half and half
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees, and spray an 8 or 9" baking dish with nonstick baking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, melt the butter and whisk in the milk, eggs, molasses, vanilla extract, and balsamic vinegar until blended.
  3. Add in all remaining dry ingredients: oats, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. Whisk until well combined.
  4. Pour mixture into the prepared baking dish.
  5. Bake 40-50 minutes, until set in the middle and dry just around the edges. Allow to cool and set for 15-20 minutes before slicing and serving.
