Baked oatmeal is a simple yet different way to make this breakfast classic.
I eat oatmeal pretty much everyday. It's a staple on my diet and I love that it makes me feel full for longer without too many calories or sugars.
I have a few oatmeal recipes that you will love. If you like to add protein to your oatmeal check my method for achieving the perfect texture, no grainy protein oatmeal here.
You will need some oats. I like to use old fashioned but any kind will do.
I used apple sauce and a banana to sweeten this recipe and add moisture. It also has yogurt and almond milk but you can use any milk you want.
I decided to use the egg white only but you can add the whole egg.
- Milk (I used Almond Milk)
- Apple Sauce
- Ripe banana
- Peanut Butter (Optional)
- Apples to serve
Tips and tricks
The main tip is to make sure all your wet ingredients get throughly incorporated before you add them to the dry ingredients.
This oatmeal takes only 25 minutes to bake and you will know it's ready when you get a firm, lightly golden top.
I love to serve this baked dish with a few slices of fresh apple, a dash of cinnamon and a drizzle of maple syrup.
