OatMEAL that’s actually good

Recipes

Working full time, keeping the house clean, paying bills, trying to stay fit and healthy…this can all be difficult to time manage. However the one thing that we can’t go without paying attention to is that you must eat! Therefore, finding quick and easy recipes that you don’t have to make everyday is key. 

Welcome: the breakfast oatmeal casserole! Healthy, quick, and satisfying. Here is the recipe below, which can be modified in many ways (see my modifications below). I used all organic ingredients and swapped out the dairy where I could. On a scale of 1 to 10, I would give this an 8! Very easy, inexpensive, filling, and tasty!

Ingredients:

  • 2 Cups All Natural Oats
  • ⅓ Cup Brown Sugar 
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • ½ Cup Chocolate Chips (dark chocolate)
  • 1 Cup Strawberries (raspberries)
  • ⅔ Cup Blueberries
  • 1 Ripe Banana
  • 2 Cups Milk (vanilla almond milk)
  • 1 Large Egg
  • 2 Tbsp Butter (organic melt buttery spread)
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 1 1/2 tsp Chia seeds
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Spray a 10×10 casserole dish generously with cooking spray.
  3. In a large bowl, mix oats, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, half the chocolate chips, & half the berries. Stir well and pour into casserole dish. Add the other half of the berries & chocolate chips to the top of the mixture. Then, slice the banana & add to top. Sprinkle on chia seeds. 
  4. In a separate bowl, combine milk, egg, butter, & vanilla. Whisk thoroughly. Pour on top of oatmeal mixture, making sure the all oats are soaked evenly. 
  5. Bake for 30 minutes. Then, remove casserole & add a tablespoon of brown sugar to the top of the casserole for added sweetness (optional.) Bake for an additional 5 or 10 minutes or until the top of the casserole is golden brown.

Some modification ideas:

  • Try adding chia or flax seeds to the mix
  • Lessen the sugar and butter
  • Swap one cup oats for one cup freekeh
  • Try different berries, like raspberries
