Years ago, my daughter was having a lot of stomach issues and a naturopath we were seeing told us that it is important to warm up your “fires” every morning. One good way to do that is with a warm bowl of oatmeal. In looking for a little variation on the oatmeal theme I made a batch of baked oatmeal. You see, truth be told, I don’t care for oatmeal. It’s mainly the texture I don’t like but it’s just not a very pretty food either! But I discovered, when you bake it, not only does it have better texture but it’s a whole lot prettier too! And it is a perfect way to warm up those “fires” in the morning.
I also love the versatility of baked oatmeal. The variations are only limited by what you have in your pantry. Add in fresh fruit, dried fruit, nuts, and chocolate. The possibilities are pretty endless. Besides the flexibility, it comes together in minutes and after it is baked it stores great in the fridge for several days and is easy to reheat. Sounds like the perfect breakfast solution, doesn’t it!?
How to Make Baked Oatmeal
The recipe uses old fashioned oats which is different from quick oats in the shape, texture and cooking time. Old fashioned oats are flatter and take longer to cook than quick oats.
- Mix together the honey, melted butter and eggs. You can use brown sugar instead of honey.
- Add in oats, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, vanilla and milk. You can substitute almond milk for regular milk if you prefer.
- Add in fruit. For this recipe I used blueberries but you could get creative with the fruit you add in. You could use diced apples, strawberries, raspberries, bananas, or mangos.
I have never been a big oatmeal fan, it’s a texture issue for me. But I was pleasantly surprised with the Baked Oatmeal. I tried it and I liked it and I felt so healthy eating it. I think I may be an oatmeal convert!
