One Healthy “Baked” Oatmeal

photo 2I love weekends. I love breakfast. I love oatmeal. I love oatmeal almost as much as I love pancakes. Why do I feel the need to express my love for oatmeal? It’s just such a classic, timeless, never-gets-old, filling, healthy, energy-packed, adaptable breakfast! Here’s an adaptation you may not yet have tried. Even if you’re not a fan of oatmeal’s soft, thin, texture, you WILL be a fan of this crunchy, nutty baked version. Plus, it takes THREE minutes to make, can you swing it?!

One Healthy Baked Oatmeal: (makes one serving)

  • 1/4 cup oats (old-fashioned, steel cut, or both!)
  • 1 egg and 1 egg white
  • 2 tablespoons almond milk
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 teaspoon real maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Mix all ingredients in microwave-safe bowl. Either pop in the micro for 2.5 minutes or, if you’re really patient, bake in oven in pan for 20-25 mins. This one’s sweet enough to enjoy solo, but feel free to add your fave oatmeal toppers. Dig in!
