This baked oatmeal reminds me of a HEALTHY peach cobbler – what better thing to eat in the morning! Loaded with health benefits though, this baked oatmeal is sure to please anyone and everyone – even kids! I, of course, add some vanilla protein powder to my baked goods as this adds an extra “filling factor” to help stabilize blood sugar and keep you fuller longer, and of course add to that protein count for the day! I love to make a baked oatmeal for the week because it’s a perfectly quick breakfast and there are endless varieties!
Here is the recipe.
2 cups old fashioned oats
2 scoops vanilla protein powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 – 1 full cup crushed raw walnuts/pecans mixture
1 can light coconut milk
2 tbsp ground flaxseed
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp pink salt
1/4 cup maple syrup
2 tbsp melted and cooled butter OR coconut oil
10 oz froze peaches, roughly chopped, (or fresh peaches – about 1.5 cups)
Preheat oven to 375. Grease with spray oil or butter or coconut oil a medium-sized baking dish. Take a large mixing bowl and add your dry ingredients. In a smaller bowl whisk the melted and cooled coconut oil or butter, coconut milk, eggs, and vanilla. Then add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir well – before pouring in the fruit. Give everything a good stir to thoroughly mix the fruit. Pour into the baking dish and bake at 375 degrees for about 40 minutes. Let cool 5-10 minutes before cutting and serving.
Enjoy with full fat yogurt! Yum. This makes about 6 servings.
