Let’s spice up your oatmeal game. This is great for families, a brunch with friends, or if you want to just try something a little different. Baked oat meal is one of those great meals for groups.
150 g Rolled Oats
1 Tbsp Cinnamon
½ Tsp Nutmeg
100 g walnuts (or any nuts)
1 Tbsp Vanilla Extract
Pinch of Salt
¼ Cup Applesauce
500 ml Milk
3 Over Ripe Bananas
150 g Berries
Milk for serving
This is a pretty simple recipe. In a bowl we’ll get our 150 grams of rolled oats.
Mix in one tablespoon ground cinnamon and half a teaspoon of nutmeg. Add 100 grams of crushed walnuts.
Get in there with your fingers, play a bit, make sure it is well combined. Toss in a little salt. atoss it a bit more.
Smell it. Cinnamon just smells so good, even before you do anything with it.
Now, in a separate bowl squeeze out that overripe, juicy banana filling from its little banana tube home. I know they don’t look the best, but they are delicious and overripe is a must. The flavour is different.
I keep a bunch of these in my freezer for these occasions. Mush these up and add a quarter cup of applesauce. No more fingers, we’ll use a whisk now.
Add in a tablespoon of vanilla extract and 500 milliliters of milk. It will be pretty loose, but it will firm up as it bakes.
Add 150 grams of blackberries. I’m using frozen, you can use fresh or a different berry. Make it your own.
Be sure you grease your baking dish. I didn’t. That was future me’s problem, I guess. Save future you the pain and grease your pan.
Bake at 350 F for about 35 minutes or until the oats have absorbed all the moisture and it is golden brown on top.
Now plate her up. It will be very hot.
A drizzle of milk, a sprinkle of coconut, and some sweet, sweet honey.
