Author: 
Recipe Type: Breakfast, Dessert
Serves: 8 servings
 
Baked oatmeal can be assembled the night before and put in the oven in the morning. It’s topped with a coconut crumble, perfect for brunch or dessert.
Ingredients
  • 2 cups old fashioned rolled oats
  • 2 cups milk of your choice (I used almond milk)
  • ⅓ cup sweetener of your choice (I used maple syrup)*
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1½ cups fresh or frozen blueberries (thawed if frozen)
  • For the crumble:
  • 1 cup old fashioned rolled oats
  • ½ cup flour*
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • ½ cup coconut oil, melted*
Instructions
  1. Place the oats, milk, sweetener, and cinnamon in a medium to large bowl and stir. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate over night. Do not add the egg or baking powder.
  2. The next morning, preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease an 8x8" square baking dish. Set aside.
  3. Whisk the beaten egg and baking powder into the oatmeal mixture until there are no lumps. Stir in the berries. Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish and bake for 20 minutes or until the majority of the liquid is absorbed.
  4. While the oatmeal bakes, prepare the crumble. Stir the oats, flour, and sugar, and pinch of salt together in a medium bowl. Stir in the melted coconut oil and let stand until the oatmeal has absorbed most of the liquid. Top the oatmeal evenly with the crumble and continue to bake for 20-30 minutes, or until puffed, bubbly, and golden brown.
  5. If the oatmeal is puffed and bubbly but the crumble hasn't browned, place it on the middle rack under the broiler for a few minutes until golden.
  6. Remove from heat and let stand 10-15 minutes. Serve and enjoy!
