We went from empty nesters to a full house a couple weeks ago and I’m guessing many of you are in the same boat. We are all trying to coexist and we’re making the best of our “staying safe at home” time. I love having my family all together, even under these crazy circumstances and I’m trying to vary our food choices as much as I can.
I am definitely a savory oats breakfast kinda girl, but I have to admit, I am getting a little tired of those so I came up with this comforting warm oatmeal breakfast that I can make ahead and we can reheat for a healthy breakfast choice.
This recipe is super easy to make. You probably have all the ingredients in your house already. The frozen fruit is totally your choice. I used a mixture that had berries, peaches and pineapple. If you only have a bag of frozen berries, those will work just as well.
One Bowl Baked Oatmeal Cups
- 2 c. Rolled oats
- 2 c. Unsweetened almond milk
- 1 t. Vanilla extract
- 2 T date paste or other sweetener of choice (maple syrup)
- 1-2 T ground flaxseed
- 1 T. Saigon Cinnamon
- 2 cups frozen mixed fruit ** see notes
Preheat oven to 375. Spray muffin tin or use liners. I used a silicone muffin pan that I placed on a sheet pan. Mix all the ingredients (except fruit) in a bowl. When well mixed, add the fruit and then fill the muffin pan. I baked for about 45 minutes because my mixture was on the wetter side, but check at about 40 minutes and they’re ready when the tops are browned and moisture is absorbed. They should also be bubbling when done.
**Note: I used a bag of mixed fruit that I found at Aldi-it had berries, peaches and pineapple, which made a great mix. Feel free to use any frozen fruit you like. I guarantee they’ll be great!
These are delicious when they’re fresh from the oven. After they have cooled, please store them in a covered container in the fridge. I like to have mine warmed up with a few spoonfuls of Forager Cashew yogurt on the side. It’s almost like having an warmed oatmeal crisp for breakfast…..mmmmm, so yummy!
Hang in there everyone. Let’s stay positive. Keep eating healthy meals and snacks. Stay home, wash your hands and I’ll see you in the kitchen soon,
