This delicious baked oatmeal recipe is a hearty, healthy breakfast I know you’ll enjoy. When I was in Minneapolis a couple weeks back, Lindsay from Pinch of Yum served a yummy baked oatmeal dish. I pinch myself for not having asked for her recipe, but when I came back home I felt so incredibly inspired to delve right into recipe creation. I headed to my pantry and started pulling out some of my favorite ingredients. I whisked together this unique baked oatmeal recipe that will delight family and friends. The consistency and flavor is amazing!
What you’ll love about this baked oatmeal recipe is that it’s so versatile. If you have special dietary restrictions, this recipe can be easily modified. Although I used coconut milk you can substitute cow’s milk. I used fresh blueberries and fresh lemon juice, but if these are not in season frozen blueberries and bottled lemon juice will do just fine. I used maple syrup, but you can use honey. I love coconut, but if you’re not crazy about it – skip it! When my baked oatmeal came out of the oven I drizzled two tablespoons of melted butter over the top. But if you don’t do dairy – skip this step too. Your baked oatmeal will still taste incredibly scrumptious. And possible toppings? Whoah…just wait until we get to that part!
This healthy breakfast recipe is very easy to assemble. Start by whisking the milk, eggs, coconut oil, maple syrup, Mexican vanilla and lemon juice together in a large mixing bowl.
Add in the oats, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and shredded coconut. Mix everything together until fully incorporated. Scrape the bowl a few times with a spatula just to make sure.
Grease the bottom and sides of a square baker. Arrange half of the blueberries on the bottom of the baking dish.
Pour the oatmeal mixture on top of the layer of blueberries. Level it out with a spatula.
Sprinkle the remaining blueberries on top of the oatmeal mixture.
Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes or until the top of the baked oatmeal is beautifully golden. Remove from the oven and place on a trivet or wire cooling rack. Cool for 5 – 10 minutes before digging in.
In the meantime, drizzle a bit of melted butter evenly over the top. Mmm… And if you love coconut as much as I do, sprinkle with beautiful coconut flakes.
Wow. Just look at this beauty. This baked oatmeal tastes just as yummy as it looks.
Now here comes the fun part. The toppings! There are no rules when it comes to topping off homemade baked oatmeal. Let your imagination run wild. Here I’ve chosen sliced strawberries, sliced bananas, raspberries, blackberries, sunflower seeds, walnuts, and pieces of chopped chocolate.
And again, because there are no rules – I added a generous dollop of homemade whipped cream! So flavorful. So festive.
Take a closer look at this scrumptious baked oatmeal all dolled up like this. Ahhh…I know exactly what you’re thinking – super scandalous, right? No worries. You can tone things down and keep it prim and proper by adding a healthy scoop of refreshing Greek yogurt instead. Yum!
