Last weekend, my wife and I were at State College, PA and stopped into The Good Day Cafe for breakfast. My wife ordered the Baked Oatmeal, which was so delicious we thought we would try to find a good baked oatmeal recipe that we could make at home.
No one would ever describe me as a chef, but I do venture into the kitchen from time to time and can even use the stove and the oven, although the microwave is my kitchen appliance of choice.
When I do try to expand my culinary skills, I have a few guidelines that I follow. The recipe must be simple, easy to prepare, be on the healthy side and serve enough so I have leftovers.
The Baked Oatmeal recipe I found was from HappyHealthyMama.com. I used blueberries instead of the three types of berries in the recipe, substituted Almond Milk for regular milk and added walnuts for some crunch. I also doubled the recipe so there would be enough for leftovers. The prep time was under 10 minutes
Here is the recipe that I used and the link to the original recipe.
4 cups old fashioned oats
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups almond milk
1/2 cup maple syrup
2 large eggs
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 cups blueberries
1 cup walnuts
Prep and Cooking:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Grease a medium baking dish and set aside.
Mix together the oats, baking powder, and salt.
Add the milk, maple syrup, egg, and vanilla.
Stir in the berries.
Pour the mixture into your casserole dish.
Bake for 20 minutes.
I asked SFL trainers Natalie and Joe to sample the finished product and am happy to report that both gave the recipe a thumbs up.
