Blueberry Baked Oatmeal

Breakfast, Desserts, Recipes, snacks

I know I say this a lot…but this WILL be the easiest recipe you will ever make. It’s also absolutely delicious!

This is now my go to breakfast in the morning. I personally love a healthy delicious grab and go breakfast on days when I don’t feel like whipping something up from scratch and this is perfect. You can heat this up and serve it…or even eat it cold. It’s delicious both ways!

Baked Blueberry Oatmeal

  • Servings: 6
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

Yields: 6 Slices

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 banana (half mashed, half sliced)
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1 1/2 cup almond milk (unsweetened is my preference)
  • 5 egg whites or (1/2 cup liquid egg whites)
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup *optional
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder

DIRECTIONS:

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F, and grease a baking sheet with nonstick spray or grease with coconut oil/ butter.
  • Pour the two cups of uncooked rolled oats evenly at the bottom of the baking sheet. Cut your banana in half and slice that half (if you haven’t already).
  • Place the slices on top of the oats, and then aesthetically place all of the blueberries evenly around then set the baking sheet aside.
  • In a separate bowl, mash the other half of the banana and add the almond milk, egg whites, maple, vanilla, cinnamon, and baking powder. Beat the ingredients together then pour it directly on top of the baking sheet with fruit/ oats.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 35 minutes or until the top is set. Allow it to cool completely, then slice and serve with yogurt, more berries, and a drizzle of nut butter, or maple syrup. Endless topping possibilities 🙂

*Notes*

*These store well in the refrigerator 5 days, you can also individually wrap and freeze/ defrost for up to 2 months*

Enjoy!

Oat Tortillas (OATILLAS)

Dinner, lunch, Recipes

These have to be my FAVORITE tortillas yet! So delicious, incredibly easy, and versatile. You can use these to make burritos, tacos, my delicious Chicken Enchilada Casserole– you name it.

I strongly believe that oats are the ULTIMATE super food/ pantry staple. There’s practically only ONE ingredient in this recipe. All you need is a little bit of kneading, and rolling, and you’ve got delicious and healthy homemade tortillas! Yay 🙂

Oat Tortillas

  • Servings: 5
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

Recipe: Yields 5: 7-inch Tortillas

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 Cup Oat Flour (Rolled Oats Blended Into Flour)
  • 1 Cup Boiling Water
  • 1/4 -1/2 Teaspoon Fine Salt

Directions

  • Start by boiling 1 cup of water and heating up a pancake griddle or skillet.
  • Mix the oat flour, and salt together in a bowl then gradually add the hot water with a fork until everything is combined and the dough starts to form – the dough will be sticky and warm.
  • Let the dough cool slightly for about a minute or two. With your hands start forming the dough (it will pull away from the bowl).
  • Take the dough out of the bowl, and place it in a silicone mat or on top of your counter and form a log.
  • Slice the log into 5 equal pieces, and form those pieces into balls.
  • Making one tortilla at a time, place parchment paper on top of the ball, press down with your hand, then roll it out with the rolling pin to form the tortilla.
  • gently remove the parchment paper from the tortilla and place it onto the hot skillet and cook it for about a minute per side.
  • Place the cooked tortillas into a plate, and repeat until you’ve made them all!
  • Store the tortillas in an air tight baggie in the refrigerator for about a week.

Enjoy!
