I realized this past weekend that it had been way too long since we had baked oatmeal. So long it had been since we were in our old house! After making this batch up, Alistaire happily ate TWO servings of it for breakfast!
Packed with fruit and vegetables, and plant-based as well, your body will thank you!
Pumpkin Cherry Banana Baked Oatmeal
- 3 cups old-fashioned oats
- ½ cup brown sugar, packed
- ¾ cup Dried Cherries
- 2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
- 3 Tbsp flaxseed meal + 9 Tbsp water
- ½ cup pumpkin purée (canned is fine)
- 1 ripe banana, mashed
- 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
Heat the oven to 350°, spray a 9×13″ glass baking dish with cooking spray.
In a large mixing bowl combine the oats through cherries.
In a medium mixing bowl whisk the milk through vanilla together, pour over the dry and stir till mixed.
Scrape into the prepared baking dish and bake for 40 minutes.
Eat warm or let cool and chill in the refrigerator.
Reheat in the microwave uncovered for 1 to 2 minutes on high (it stores well for a couple of days for easy breakfasts).
