This recipe is a family favorite. Last week we had an evening where our plans changed and I needed to come up with a quick dinner. 2 kids had strep throat and the baby had a virus so we needed something easy. My kids are huge fans of having breakfast for dinner so we enjoyed omelets with a berry baked oatmeal.
1 stick of butter or half a cup coconut oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup honey or sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoons salt
3 cups of oatmeal
1 cup of milk
1/2 – 1 cup of fruit
Preheat the oven to 350. Mix the melted butter, eggs, vanilla and sugar. Add dry ingredients. Mix thoroughly then add milk. I like to add the fruit to the bottom of the 8×8 dish. Bake for 30-45 min (until golden brown on top).
You can make so many different versions of this dish – blueberry and cinnamon, banana and walnut, peanut butter and chocolate chips, diced apples with spices. Enjoy!
