Baked Strawberry Mango Oatmeal

Baked Oatmeal ++ the pear and plum

ingredients:

  • 1.5 Cups milk
  • 1Tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2.5 Cups Old Fashioned Oats
  • less than 1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1.5 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 2 Tbsp Butter, softened
  • 1 Cup of chopped frozen mango &  strawberries (i’m going to try other variations too….peaches, apples, etc)

directions:

  1. Whisk together milk, vanilla, and eggs.
  2. Add oats, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt and mix together.
  3. Stir in softened butter and mango
  4.  Pour into baking dish. [I used a round pyrex baking bowl] Let it sit for at least three hours or overnight. [I actually didnt have that much time so I let it sit for about a half hour. The end result may have been a firmer texture if i had let them sit but it still tasted great.]
  5. Place cold dish in cold oven. Set oven to 350 degrees and bake for 30 to 45 minutes or until oatmeal puffs up and is golden brown.
  6. Let cool a bit before serving.

good to know:

+ I used Trader Joes frozen mangoes for the above and it was DELICIOUS.

+ You can do a pumpkin version by using 1 can pumpkin, 1 tsp Allspice and increasing the oats to 3 cups. I may increase the cinnamon too depending on how you feel about cinnamon. The cooking time seemed to increase significantly but you’ll just have to experiment.

+Coconut Almond Blueberry : 1/2 Cup shreaded coconut, a couple almonds (chopped fine), 1/2 Cup frozen blueberries
