Baked Oats for Breakfast
January 26th, 2013
If I eat oatmeal, I always cook old fashioned oats on the stove with spices, dried fruit and nuts, but I liked this slow-baked version even better. It is less like a porridge and more like a dessert, and I can handle that! I made this recipe with blueberries I had frozen from summer. Most baked oatmeal recipes I have seen have eggs in them and it is really not necessary. You can even add ground flax seeds and water for a vegan version.
You can bake a few herbed eggs while the oats are cooking, and with that you have a fresh breakfast and little to clean up. This is so delicious and along the lines of what I cook, that I am shocked I didn’t think of it before!
I am not much of a breakfast eater, but I know I should be and I am trying to be again. I’ll be baking my oatmeal more often with fruits now, so I enjoy more breakfasts!
