Baked Oatmeal

I know I have been really neglecting the blog lately and I feel pretty guilty about that. Truth is, I've been running around, eating out, and not cooking. And there isn't much to report in cooking news. However, last night I got out my handy dandy recipe clippings book and my Pinterest foodspirations board and came up with a menu for this week. That is, a menu through Wednesday night, because Thursday I'm going to see my favorite people in the whole wide world (that live in Denver)!!!

So today, in excitement for my Denver family visit, I made Jack-attack's baked oatmeal. Shout out!

One time when my awesome studio apartment was being fumigated, Sprinkles the cat and I took up residency at Jackie's awesome studio apartment. And like a good mom, Jackie made me breakfast. It was the world's most delicious version of oatmeal you will ever eat. So I have recreated it today with a few healthy omissions and substitutions. Just as delicious as Jackie's!

Baked Oatmeal
9 Servings - 4 WW P+ each

  • 3 cups uncooked oats
  • 1 egg + 2 egg whites
  • 1/2 c. white sugar
  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 1/4 c. unsweetened natural applesauce
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • Preheat oven to 350F
  • In one bowl, combine oats, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon
  • In another bowl, combine eggs, sugar, almond milk, melted coconut oil, applesauce, and vanilla
  • Combine the two bowls and mix until incorporated
  • Pour into a greased 9x9 glass baking dish
  • Bake for 40 minutes
  • Eat with fresh fruit and more almond milk poured over the top

I topped mine with blueberries and banana.

You could make this recipe with any milk you choose, but I think the almond milk adds a little nutiness. Also, feel free to use vegetable oil instead of coconut oil, but again, I think it adds a little extra flavor.

You could also mix fruit into the mixture before baking. If I recall correctly, Jackie mixed in dried apricots and blueberries and it was bomb.com
