Up and Out the door!

Baked Oatmeal!

This month we’re coming to you with an easy summer breakfast reci-pea! Our Baked Oatmeal can be quickly prepped at night and baked in the morning for a warm healthy breakfast to fuel the family for all their daytime activities!

We decided to use quinoa flakes in our reci-pea to add more protein and fiber. When then replaced the butter, normally found in an oatmeal bake, with pumpkin puree! Lastly, this reci-pea is a great way to use up any aging fruit on your counter like bananas, nectarines and/or strawberries! Enjoy making this dish. Your kitchen will smell divine and you will have breakfast set for a few days.

1 cup rolled oats
1 cup quinoa flakes
1 ½ cup milk
1 cup coconut milk
1 egg
1 tsp baking powder
1.5 tsp cinnamon
½ cup pumpkin puree
1/3 cup maple syrup
2 tsp vanilla
1 tbsp brown sugar
3 ripe bananas, sliced

Preheat oven to 350. Spray an 8x8 pan with non-stick cooking spray. Line the bottom of the pan with the banana slices or other fruit, and sprinkle with the brown sugar.

Mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl and mix all the wet ingredients together in a bowl (both can be done the night before, just give the liquid mixture a good whisk in the morning.)

Evenly spread the dry ingredients over the bananas. Next, evenly pour the wet ingredients over the oats. Give the pan a good thwack on the counter to help liquid disperse and remove air. Bake for 45min, or until the center is set. Enjoy warm! Store in the refrigerator for up to a week.
