BM# 51 — Baking Marathon: Day 16
Bake of the Day: Breakfast — Baked Oatmeal
Baked oatmeal for breakfast is a great way to start any day — it’s easy to put together, quite healthy and can be made for 1 or for a crowd in almost the same time.
I tasted baked oatmeal with raspberries at a cute little restaurant in Harrisburg last year and it has been on my mind ever since. I actually wanted to try the same recipe with raspberries but I couldn’t find any good berries in the store. So ended up making this chocolate version because the kids would prefer this version over the berries.
It is very simple to put together — mix all the ingredients, pour into the baking dish(es) and bake. The batter is quite liquidy to begin with so it takes a good 40~45 minutes to bake. I haven’t tried it but I’m thinking that assembling the dish overnight and baking in the morning for breakfast would also work.
I skipped the egg and used egg replacer instead — ground flax seed whisked with water would also work. When served with extra milk and maple syrup — it tastes almost like a dessert and kids would love it.
