Baked Oats – Cinnamon Roll + Birthday Cake Variations (Gluten-free, Dairy free, Refined Sugar Free)
birthdaycakeoats

You likely know by now how I love my oats.

I love them in breads.

I love them in crisps and cobblers.

I love them in cakes.

I especially love them blended with fun flavors and baked until puffed and golden for breakfast.  This brings me to these Baked Oats recipes that I’m so excited about!

 

When oats are blended, they become oat flour, and when oat flour is combined with egg, milk, baking powder, and flavor additions it essentially becomes a cake.  

This means, yes, we can eat cake for breakfast.  How great is that?

Two of my favorite variations are this Cinnamon Roll Baked Oats, where I use coconut yogurt for a glaze, and Birthday Cake Baked Oats which is like a healthy Funfetti cake (and who doesn’t love that)?

You want to bake these long enough for the inside to fully cook through, anywhere from 30-45 minutes depending on your oven and depth of your baking dish.  This will make the texture more cake like and less like oatmeal.

“What else can I use?”

  • I sometimes use my Orgain vegan protein powder in place of the coconut sugar in these baked oats.  2 scoops can be subbed in for the coconut sugar.
  • If you don’t have coconut sugar, regular sugar works just as well.
  • Fruit is wonderful in these baked oats, and takes them more into a muffin territory which is delicious.

I can’t wait to hear what you think, and what combinations you come up with.  Please tag me on social media and share your creations, I love to see them!  Enjoy!
