Baked Oatmeal

Breakfast food is my least favorite type of food which is why I’m perfectly happy to just drink my green smoothies for breakfast.  But this baked oatmeal right here…Mmm, mmm, mmm.  This is one breakfast item I love.  It makes me feel warm and cozy.  It makes the house smell good as it’s baking and it tastes like dessert.  We usually have this on Wednesdays in my house (meal planning makes life easier).

oats

2 cups Old Fashioned Rolled Oats

1/3 cup Chopped Walnuts

2 tsp Baking Powder

¼ tsp Salt

1 tsp Cinnamon

½ cup Evaporated Cane Juice or Demerara (natural unrefined sugar)

2 cups Almond Milk

1 Egg beaten

5 tbsp Oil (any neutral flavor will do)

2 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract

2 Baking Apples (Granny Smith, Pink Lady) peeled, seeded, diced

 

 

Preheat oven to 350.  In a large bowl combine oats, nuts, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. In another bowl whisk milk, egg, vanilla, oil, and sugar.  Stir wet mixtures into oat mixture. Place apples into greased 9×11 baking pan then pour on mixture.  Bake 40 minutes or until set and golden on the top.

 

*To boost nutritional value I replace the egg with ground flax seed and water mixture known as a flax egg.  I use coconut oil for the oil in this recipe. I also sub out the fruit for whatever is seasonal.  In the summer peaches and in the fall and winter pears. This baked oatmeal recipe is super flexible so have fun making it your own.

      Because steel cut oats take so long to cook, it would not be a directly swap out but you could to this in a crockpot overnight with steel cut oats and increase the liquid just a bit. Also grease the inside of the crockpot 1st.
