Baked Oatmeal

By 10:22 , , ,

Baked oatmeal rarely ever fails! ☺ And each can be prepped and baked within 30 minutes. To start you off, here are some of the variations I’ve tried. Each serves 1. Spices refer to cinnamon, nutmeg and ground ginger. Use as much as you’d like! If you’d rather have a denser baked oatmeal, omit the baking powder.

Cranberry-Orange Baked Oatmeal

Tangy, citrus-y and juicy!
Ingredients:
· 1 medium orange (it seems like navel oranges tend to get slightly more bitter after baking, so you may like to use another variety)
· ½ cup rolled oats
· 2 tsp chia seeds
· ½ tsp vanilla essence
· ½ tsp baking powder
· 1 tbsp chopped dried cranberries
· Spices
· Optional: 1 tbsp carob/cocoa powder

Method:
1. Hollow out the orange. I find it easiest to cut around the white pith and between the segments, then scoop them out with a spoon.
2. Puree the orange flesh.
3. To the puree, add the oats, chia seeds, vanilla essence, baking powder, dried cranberries and the spices.
4. Scoop into the orange skins. I mixed in 1 tbsp carob powder into half.
5. Bake at 180°C in a preheated oven for 10-15 minutes.
 
 
Banana-Berry Baked Oatmeal
Bananas make everything taste so good. Especially warm, melty, caramelized bananas! This is topped with chocolate chia sauce, tahini, hemp hearts, cacao nibs and raspberries.
Ingredients:
· 1 large banana
· ½-3/4 cup rolled oats
· ¼ cup berry puree (I used frozen raspberries)
· Spices

Method:
1. Lay out 1/3 of the banana, sliced in a small non-stick ramekin or pan.
2. Mix the oats with puree of the remaining 2/3 banana and the berry puree.
3. Stir in the spices.
4. Pour into pan and bake at 180°C in a preheated oven for 10-15 minutes, or until juices flow out of the pan.
 
 
Apple Pie Baked Oatmeal

So simple, yet it really does taste like apple pie! A crumbly and crunchy top with moist, juicy and plump oats within! And yes I did eat all of it. By the way, the apples will only ‘crinkle’when you open the oven door! At least, that’s what happened for me.

Ingredients:
· 2 large apples (or medium)
· 1/3 cup rolled oats
· Spices
· Optional: 2 tsp black sesame powder

Method:
1. Hollow out the apples.
2. Puree the apple chunks and add the oats and spices
3. Scoop back into the apple cups. I added the black sesame powder to half of the mix.
4. Bake at 180°C in a preheated oven for 20-25 minutes.

 
Banana, Walnut & Fig Baked Oatmeal

Topped with tahini, cacao nibs and mint leaves. This was so good. Very. So moist and sweet at the bottom and crispy and rich at the top!

Ingredients:
· 1 medium banana
· ½-3/4 cup rolled oats
· About 4-5 walnuts, chopped
· About 2 dried figs, chopped
· ½ tsp baking powder
· Spices
· Optional: 1-2 tbsp water/milk

Method:
1. Lay out 1/3 banana on the base of a small ramekin or pan.
2. Mash the other 2/3 banana and add the next 4 ingredients.
3. Add a few tbsp. water/milk if it’s too dry.
4. Pour into pan and bake at 180°C in a preheated oven for 10-15 minutes, or until juices flow out of the pan.
