Warm and satisfying, this healthy baked oatmeal is the perfect wake-up call for a busy morning.
1/2 cup pecans, coarsely chopped
2 and 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
1 and 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. sea salt
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1 and 3/4 cups milk
1/3 cup maple syrup (or honey)
2 large eggs
4 tbsp. melted butter, divided in half
2 and 1/2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries (half for bottom of the dish and half to sprinkle on top)
2 tsp. maple sugar (optional to sprinkle on top)
- Start by preheating the oven to 375F.
- Toast pecans for 3 to 5 minutes. Once you notice that nutty aroma, it's time to pull them out and let them cool.
- In a medium mixing bowl, combine nutmeg, oats, nuts, cinnamon baking powder and salt.
- In a small glass bowl (I love to use my glass measuring cup for this step), whisk together milk, maple syrup, eggs, vanilla and 2 tbsp. of the melted butter. (the other 2 tbsp. will be brushed on top once it's done cooking).
- Grease an 8x8-inch baking dish and arrange half of the berries in the bottom of the dish.
- Cover blueberries in baking dish with the oat mixture.
- Pour wet ingredients evenly over top of oatmeal mixture.
- Scatter remaining berries over top of oat mixture.
- Sprinkle with 2 tsp. maple sugar or brown sugar (optional but tasty).
- Bake in 375F oven for 45 minutes.
- Drizzle remaining 2 tbsp. of butter over top. Another sprinkle of maple sugar on the warm baked oatmeal gives it a bit more sweetness.
- Cool for 5 minutes before serving.
- Serve plain or topped with yogurt or maple syrup.
- Store leftovers in the refrigerator for 3 to 5 days. Warm up in the microwave for 60 seconds.
Fruit - add a mixture of fresh or frozen raspberries, blackberries, strawberries.
Nuts - substitute the pecans with walnuts or sliced almonds.
