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 (or two full servings depending on the serving size)
1 tsp baking powder
3/4 – 1 full cup crushed raw walnuts or pecans or mixture
1 can light coconut milk
2 tbsp ground flaxseed or more (sometimes I add 2-3 tbsp chia too)
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 frozen 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. I used a Pyrex 7 x 11 inches glass dish.
Take a large mixing bowl and add your dry ingredients. In a slightly smaller bowl whisk the melted and cooled coconut oil or butter, coconut milk, eggs, and vanilla and maple syrup. 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 plain yogurt! Yum. This makes about 6-8 servings.
