I’m a carbs for breakfast kind of person. When I have my coffee, I “need” some grains. Its just the way I feel my morning coffee should be paired. So the dilemma is finding ways to have the mental satisfaction of eating a donut for breakfast without the effect of daily donuts on the waist line 😉
Last week I had some baked oatmeal that rocked my world at a local cafe. I decided I needed to come up with a recipe I could make at home that would be wholesome and something I could eat frequently without consequence. First go at recipe development was quite a hit in my opinion I’ll be making many more varieties of this and sharing but I’m hoping you will be as pleased as I was with this first one. Here we go.
Baked Blueberry Oatmeal
3 cups of Quick Oats
1/2 cup Sliced Almonds
1/2 cup Coconut Sugar
1/2 tsp salt (I use pink Himalayan)
2 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg (I like fresh ground)
3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 coconut oil, melted
1 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
Mix the dry ingredients (first 7 ingredients).
In a separate bowl mix the melted coconut oil, eggs, vanilla and almond milk
Stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients until well blended (will be thick like cookie dough). Fold in blueberries.
