Simple Baked Oatmeal

You guys know I love my baked oatmeal. Absolutely love it! And I am obviously here for all the fun and unique flavors, but I need a home base. You know? And that home base is this Simple Baked Oatmeal. It has the perfect level of sweetness, a vanilla flavor you can jazz up with the toppings of your choice, and is an extremely healthy breakfast option! It is loaded with complex carbohydrates to keep you full, omega 3 fatty acids from chia seeds, and even has a little protein boost.

What you need for this Simple Baked Oatmeal!

You guys, this recipe is actually SO simple that I wasn’t even sure I should post it, but then decided I need to share it with the world. When I say simple, I mean seven ingredients, less than 30 minutes, and breakfast ready for the week simple. Then all you have to do is top with some seed or nut butter, honey, and fresh fruit for pure deliciousness!

  • Oats: Pretty self explanatory! I used old fashioned.
  • Vanilla Protein Powder: I love to use protein powder in my baked oatmeal and even in my regular oats! It adds a nice sweetness and flavor to the oats and also obviously a protein boost. I like to use vegan protein powder. Here is my favorite kind!
  • Pure Maple Syrup: If you do not know about my love for pure maple syrup at this point, then you don’t know me at all! Okay possibly a dramatic statement, but it is kind of true. It is my favorite refined sugar free sweetener! I used just a touch to sweeten things up in this recipe. You could swap with honey or a different liquid sweetener of your choice!
  • Almond Milk: I prefer unsweetened vanilla almond milk, but you could totally use the milk of your choice here.
  • Chia Seeds: Chia seeds are a magnificent little seed that have so much nutritional value! They are a great source of omega 3 fatty acids, antioxidants, and fiber. But they are mostly used in this recipe for their absorbing abilities! They thicken things up and help make a great texture in these baked oats.
  • Lastly Vanilla Extract for some more flavor and Baking Powder for a little rise.
