Apple-Berry Baked Oatmeal

 

We are always looking for ways to mix up breakfast, especially that pesky weekday breakfast that I find so hard to turn into a healthy habit. I love this because it not only tastes delicious, but you can make it and have it ready for the entire week. Efficient + Tasty = one happy meal planner.

AND … that’s not all. This is super healthy – you’ve got fruit, heart-healthy oats, hemp seeds, and a low sugar content. The hemp and wheat germ/flax seed will give you more nutritional bang for your buck, but feel free to omit – the recipe will bake the same. Feel free to mix this recipe up with all sorts of frozen or fresh fruit. This is great with peaches for a peaches and cream take on oatmeal. Enjoy!

    This sounds amazing. I wonder if it could be made with steel-cut oats? I have some called “Coach’s Oats” from Costco that are a quicker cooking version of steel-cut oats. What do you think? Thanks!

      I’ve never used quick cooking steel oats, but I bet they would work. If they are regular steel cut oats I would recommend soaking in hot water for about an hour and then drain and make the recipe as directed. Steel oats take a lot longer to become tender so just keep that in mind when working with them. The texture might be different too, but if you know you like steel oats you should be fine.

    Also, do you have nutritional info for this recipe?

      Sorry Patti, I do not have nutritional information. But there are websites you can use (google “figure out nutritional information for a recipe”) for any recipe/ingredient.
