I have been hinting towards a baked oatmeal recipe for some time but I finally felt that I could share it after some testing.
Making recipes can be a daunting thing.
When I first started this blog, I would just make something, guess the amounts for the ingredients that I used and post the recipe. Too bad if they weren’t right because I figured everyone was at the same level of cooking as me and they would figure out how to fix the recipe to suit them.
Fast forward a year and after doing consults and seeing my friends cook, I realize that this isn’t the case.
I have been cooking meals for my family since I was 14, that means that I have done a lot of trail and error in that time. I’ve made meals that were not edible at all!
And one time, I served a semi-rare pork roast because I was too stubborn to admit to my Dad that I was wrong and the roast needed to go back in the oven for 20 minutes. What a shit of a kid haha!
Now, I feel like I have a pretty good grasp on cooking. If the recipe doesn’t taste right, I know the little tricks to fix the flavours. I know how long to cook things without burning or overcooking them. I am also a bit more humble and will admit when I am wrong or the meal I made isn’t that great (it still happens from time to time.)
So here is my baked oatmeal recipe for you.
I have tested and tasted it at least 7 times. With different oats, different fruits and different cooking times. I love this recipe for breakfast because I make it, put it in the oven and then have a shower. By the time I’m dressed, the oatmeal is ready to eat and my house smells delicious.
You can also make this recipe in the microwave, which is MUCH faster and works if you are running out the door.
If you like this recipe, I love to hear from you in the comment section below.
And if you really love it, make sure to share it with your friends!
Have a great weekend,
