Baked Oatmeal Recipe

In my quest to be a Gluten Free I ran across some problems at breakfast. If I go somewhere and sit down I’m okay, eggs and potatoes will do, but what about my jaunt into the local coffee shop? No muffins, bagels, croissants or biscotti for me.

Recently I went to my local coffee shop St. Thomas Roasters and they had Baked Oatmeal. I asked about the recipe and it was gluten free, yay! Their oatmeal was very simple, just some brown sugar. As I sat there I couldn’t help thinking of all the better things I could put into my own baked oatmeal… so I did!  I made my first attempt with peaches, and it was good but it needed a bit of tweaking. Here is the recipe I used for my second (and very successful attempt).

Baked Oatmeal with Blueberries and Bananas

Baked Oatmeal IngredientsDry Ingredients

  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1.5 teaspoons cinnamon
  • a dash of salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar

Liquid Ingredients

  • 2 cups milk ( I used Organic Fat Free)
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon agave syrup (or maple syrup). If you don’t have agave, add more brown sugar.
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter, slightly cooled

The Add-Ins
You can use whatever fresh fruits, dried fruits, or nuts that you like. Here is what I used:

  • 2 fresh Bananas, sliced
  • 1/2 cup fresh Blueberries
  • Grated peel of one small Lemon
  • Juice of 1/4 lemon wedge.

Preheat your oven to 375. Butter an 8×8 pan and set it aside.
Combine all the dry ingredients in a bowl and set aside.

Dry Ingredients

Combine all the liquid ingredients, leaving 1/2 the butter in the dish. Mix them with a whisk and set the bowl aside.

Wet Ingredients

Mix your Add-Ins together in a small bowl.

Diced Bananas and Blueberries

Next, add the fruit mixture to the dry ingredients and combine. Then move them into the buttered baking dish.

Mixed Fruit and Oats 2

Pour the liquid mixture over the oat mixture. Use your spoon or scraper to gently move the liquid around, making sure all the oats are covered.

Ready to Bake

Next I took 1/3 cup of crushed almonds and spread them over the top, then drizzled the rest of the melted butter over the top.

Put in the oven and bake 35-45 minutes. Let it cool a bit and enjoy!

Baked Close Up - Copy

I usually cut mine into 9 pieces. Each piece will have around 200 calories depending on what you add and how much sugar you use. In the fridge it will keep about a week, I like to warm my piece in the microwave and drizzle a little milk on it. If you make your own version, please let us know what delicious combos you’ve tried!
