Baked Oatmeal Recipe


Why I love this breakfast, it’s:

  •  a all-in-one-bowl recipe, easy clean up
  • QUICK to prep and “hands off” just throw it in the oven and do something else
  • nutritional (you can make it with as much or little sweetener as you want, and switch out the maple syrup for a sweetener of your choice)
  • EASY to make DAIRY FREE by substituting cows milk for almond milk. I actually think the subtle, sweet, nuttiness the almond milk adds is a bonus to this dish.
  • GLUTEN FREE if you use gluten-free oats
  • a great “base” recipe, let your imagination expound upon it! Add a mashed banana to the mix? Cocao nibs sprinkled on top? Add chia seeds and flax seed to the batter?
  • breakfast for DAYS if you make a double batch
  • great reheated (yay!)
  • easy to keep it diverse by adding all sorts of toppings and fresh in season fruit you want to keep it diverse
