My favorite breakfast is fresh, fast and healthy. That’s one reason why I love oatmeal. We love topping this delicious and heart healthy breakfast grain with seasonal ingredients. My Baked Oatmeal is loaded with even more protein than the traditional stove top version thanks to skim milk and wholesome eggs. The berries and maple syrup gives this a little sweetness for the kid in us and the nuts add a great crunch. Olivio Buttery Spread adds a delicious buttery richness with the healthiness of California Olive Oil. Make this at the beginning of the week and enjoy on the go hot or cold the rest of the week. What a wonderful way to start the day! Note: This dish is toddler approved too:)
2 cups Old Fashioned Oats
1 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Baking Soda
1/4 tsp Salt
1 Tbs Flax Seed
1/4 cup Brown Sugar
2 cups Skim Milk (sub for nondairy milk for dairy-free!)
2 Extra Large Eggs
1/4 Maple Syrup
1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
2 Tbs Olivio Original or Ultimate (Dairy Free) Buttery Spread, melted
1 cup Berries or Diced Fruit
1/2 cup Almonds, sliced or coarsely chopped
A light dusting of powdered sugar gives this dish an appetizing finish.
Top individual bowls with additional fruit and a splash of milk.
This dish is a great make-ahead meal for the week and is even yummy served cold or at room temperature. Enjoy!
