I really want to make these this week, but just realized I don't have quick-cooking oats. Do you think it would work anyway?

This is the recipe that I make. I use half quick-cooking and half regular because we like that texture. Sometimes we slice apples in the bottom of the dish, sometimes we heat up applesauce and put a tablespoon or two on top when we serve it. I like the blueberries in it, but it's more like a dessert and my dh doesn't like it that way. I cut the sugar amount slightly, too, so it is more healthy and not so sweet. I used to live in Lancaster Co., PA and Baked Oatmeal was a very big deal there!

I am sorry that I did not see your comment sooner, Mer. I usually use quick oats for this recipe, but either is good. Thanks for your interest in the recipe. Hands down, the banana choc chip would be declared the all-time favorite!!!!
Although the first time I had it, it was simply the spiced version with fresh peaches and whipped cream...wonderful!!!!
