Berry Baked Oatmeal
If you are looking for the most perfect winter breakfast, or a cozy after school snack, this is the treat for you. It is something between the texture of regular stovetop oatmeal, and a muffin. But it's weird, you pour milk over it, so really it's unlike anything I've had before.
*This recipe can easily be modified to be gluten and dairy free by using gluten free oats, your favorite milk alternative like almond milk, and dairy free butter or margarine.
3 cups of quick-cooking oats
3/4 cup of brown sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
2 large eggs
1 cup of milk
1/2 cup of butter, melted.
1 1/2 cups of frozen berries. (My favorite combo is blueberries and raspberries)
It also tastes amazing with peeled and chopped Macintosh apples.
1/4- 1/2 cup of hemp hearts for up the nutrition component.
Depending on your mood you could add chocolate chips, pecans, walnuts,... the list goes on!
Lets get started!
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
In one bowl mix the first 5 ingredients.
In a separate bowl mix the last ingredients.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredient bowl and mix together.
Pour into a 9" square greased pan.
Flatten the top just enough so it all bakes evenly.
Bake for 40-45 minutes. The oatmeal on the edges of the pan will be golden brown.
Serve in a bowl with milk poured over top.
And then tell me how much you love it!
