With all the blackberries growing I have to come up with ideas to use them in my cooking, so today I made a baked oatmeal. This will serve a large family or leftovers for the week.
Layer bottom of dish with fruit.
Pour oat mixture over fruit and top with more fruit and sprinkle with coconut.
Bake for about 40 minutes at 375°F.
Here is the recipe:
•2 cups large flake oats
•1/4 cup shredded coconut
•1 tsp baking powder
•2 tsp cinnamon
•Pinch Himalayan pink salt or sea salt
•1/3 cup coconut palm sugar or sweetener of choice
•1-3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
•1 whole egg
•2 egg whites or 1/4 cup
•2 tsp pure vanilla extract
•2 Tbsp coconut oil, melted
Bottom and topping:
•2 Cups blackberries
•1 ripe banana, sliced
•6 strawberries, chopped (optional – I had some really ripe ones I decided to throw in)
Preheat oven to 375ºF. Combine dry ingredients I large bowl and mix well. Whisk together wet ingredients in separate bowl and mix well. Pour wet into dry and stir until well incorporated. Line bottom of glass dish with banana slices, strawberries and blackberries saving some for the topping (I used two small ramekins and a 8×8 Pyrex dish – an 8×8 glass dish will work just fine for this). Pour oat mixture over fruit and top with more banana slices, strawberries and blackberries. Sprinkle tops with more shredded coconut. Bake for appx. 40 minutes. Let cool 5-10 minutes before serving. Serves 6.
