Gluten Free Morning Oatmeal

This recipe comes to you from Cookie & Kate and our partner, Maine Grains. It is gluten free, and loaded with fiber. Fresh fruit, honey, spices, and organic rolled oats…it’s a healthy breakfast that tastes like it shouldn’t be! We have what you need.

Ingredients:

  • ⅔ cup roughly chopped pecans
  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ž teaspoon fine-grain sea salt (or ½ teaspoon regular table salt)
  • Âź teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 ž cups milk of choice (oat milk)
  • ⅓ cup maple syrup or honey
  • 2 large eggs or flax eggs
  • 3 tablespoons melted unsalted butter or coconut oil, divided
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 12 ounces or 1 pint fresh blueberries (or 2 ½ cups of your preferred berry/fruit, chopped into ½” pieces if necessary), divided
  • 2 teaspoons raw sugar (optional)
  • Optional toppings for serving: plain/vanilla yogurt or whipped cream, additional maple syrup or honey for drizzling, and/or additional fresh fruit

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Once the oven has finished preheating, pour the nuts onto a rimmed baking sheet. Toast for 4 to 5 minutes, until fragrant.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the oats, toasted nuts, cinnamon, baking powder, salt and nutmeg. Whisk to combine.
  3. In a smaller mixing bowl, combine the milk, maple syrup or honey, egg, half of the butter or coconut oil, and vanilla. Whisk until blended. (If you used coconut oil and it solidified in contact with the cold ingredients, briefly microwave the bowl in 30 second increments, just until the coconut oil melts again.)
  4. Reserve about ½ cup of the berries for topping the baked oatmeal, then arrange the remaining berries evenly over the bottom of the baking dish (no need to defrost frozen fruit first). Cover the fruit with the dry oat mixture, then drizzle the wet ingredients over the oats. Wiggle the baking dish to make sure the milk moves down through the oats, then gently pat down any dry oats resting on top.
  5. Scatter the remaining berries across the top. Sprinkle some raw sugar on top if you’d like some extra sweetness and crunch.
  6. Bake for 42 to 45 minutes, until the top is nice and golden. Remove your baked oatmeal from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes. Drizzle the remaining melted butter on the top before serving.
  7. I prefer this baked oatmeal served warm, but it is also good at room temperature or chilled (I’ll leave that up to you!). This oatmeal keeps well in the refrigerator, covered, for 4 to 5 days. I simply reheat individual portions in the microwave before serving.
