Baked Oatmeal is a family favorite because it is healthy, but tastes just like dessert. This gluten free and dairy free baked oatmeal can be personalized however you would like. Anything goes, but we loves ours with peanut butter, chocolate and coconut.

Sometimes, when I first wake up in the morning I just want a little sweetness to tide me offer while I drink my coffee. I definitely can not get by on just this, but it is nice to enjoy while I am waiting for my coffee to kick in and give me the motivation to make my eggs and sweet potatoes.

The beauty of baked oatmeal is its not just for breakfast. It is also an excellent excuse to have some dessert for breakfast. Sure, you could leave this plain, or just fill it up with the usual oatmeal mix-ins (raisins, brown sugar, nuts). I love my baked oatmeal loaded with chocolate, coconut and peanut butter.



I make this big tray and for at least 3 days we can all have a square first thing in the morning, or in the afternoon with a cup of tea. I also put these in lunch boxes for a sweet and filling, but healthy dessert.

This would be the perfect tray of treats to bring to someone who needed a pick me up, or for an afternoon tea or brunch. These are perfect for a potluck. Beware though, these babies are addicting.

    How can I make these without peanut butter? We have a nut allergy in our family.

      You could try it with sunbutter although I haven’t used it yet. It should work just the same.
