Choose from four tasty options (or try them all!)
apple cinnamon with raisins and sunflower seeds
peanut butter banana and chocolate chip
tropical delight - pineapple, coconut, dried mango and slivered almonds (my personal fav!)
Enjoy this baked oatmeal cold or warm it up and add some milk. My kids love adding a scoop of vanilla yogurt. YUM!
Whip up a batch on Sunday and enjoy all week. It's the perfect morning treat!
Makes 6-8 servings
2 1/2 cups large flake rolled oats
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup milk (or milk alternative)
2 tbsp melted butter
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 tsp salt
Choose from one of these four flavour options:
2 apples, diced, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 cup raisins, 2 tbsp sunflower seeds
1 cup frozen or fresh blueberries, 1/4 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
1/4 cup peanut butter (melted), 2 sliced bananas, 1/8 cup chocolate chips
1 cup canned pineapple tidbits (drained), 1/8 cup dried coconut flakes, 1/8 cup chopped dried mango, 1/8 cup slivered almonds
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Grease a 9x9 baking dish.
In a large mixing bowl, mix oats, baking powder, and any 'dry' flavourings you are using (ie. nuts, seeds, cinnamon, dried fruit, etc.).
In another large bowl, whisk together milk, eggs, melted butter, vanilla, sugar and any 'wet' flavourings you are using (ie. fruit, peanut butter).
Pour the wet ingredients into the dried and mix well.
Pour oat mixture into greased dish.
Bake for 40-45 minutes (until it is set).
Let cool slightly before eating.
Serve warm with milk and/or vanilla yogurt. You can easily re-warm in the microwave in the morning.
This dish also travels well. Put it in a glass dish with a tight fitting lid and add a little milk then re-heat at work for a late breakfast or even lunch!
Store in the fridge for up to 5 days.
This is a fantastic recipe to make with your kids. Let them measure, stir and even chop the fruit. They will love being involved and will be more likely to give it a try if they've had a hand in making it.
I hope you enjoy 😊
