*Disclaimer- I have been super lazy when it comes to pictures lately... I promise to get out my "real" camera and focus, change f-stops, and try to be a legit blogger one of these days... I hate to tell you today is not that day SORRY!*
You don't need great pictures to share great food and that's why I am here today. I have finally made a version of Baked oatmeal that I am willing to share... (it took a few times to get a recipe that was blog worthy)
Blueberry Baked Oatmeal
What you need:
3 cups oats
1 cup dried unsweetened coconut - feel free to used sweetened
1/2 cup sliced almonds or nut of choice
1 cup fresh blueberries
2 Cups almond milk or milk of choice
1 egg white
1 6oz vanilla greek yogurt- any flavor would work
4oz apple sauce
* you can make this vegan super easily by switching out the egg white for a flax egg*
What you do:
Pre Heat oven to 375
-Mix all ingredients in a large bowl until everything is equally incorporated.
-Pour into a greased casserole dish.
-Once the oatmeal is oven ready sprinkle the top with chia seeds. This will add a little crunch and some extra nutrients. You can't really ever go wrong with chia seeds
-Bake on 375 for 25-30 min or until the top is golden brown.
-Once cool portion out your baked oatmeal for easy breakfasts for the week.
*cooking side note- I do not add sugar to my baked oatmeal so if you are someone who likes sweet oatmeal then before baking mix in some honey, agave, stevia*
When the time comes to eat these wonderful bars of joy get creative...
I heat mine up and spread on some of my homemade chia jam, sliced fruit and some protein icing.
*mix protein powder and almond milk to a constancy you want and drizzle on top*
Brian and I ate this 3 times this week. It is an easy way to have a home cooked breakfast at 4:30am without having to cook :o)
