Baked Coconut Oatmeal

By Saturday, December 14, 2013 , , ,

Another variation on my baked oatmeal recipe, this is warm and comforting on a cold winter's morning. It looks like you've made something quite incredible, but really it's just a regular bowl of oatmeal in the oven. This breakfast is ultra filling and satisfying and it's definitely worth the extra effort. For a little bit of decadence, I even drizzled a little raw chocolate on the oatmeal before serving!


You will need:

1/2 cup oats
1/4 cup canned coconut milk
1/4 cup water
1 ripe banana
1/2 tsp baking powder

    Firstly preheat your oven to 180C and allow it to warm up whilst you cook. Soak your oats in a bowl with the coconut milk and water for 10-15 minutes so they can soften up. Meanwhile, mash your banana roughly with a fork, then combine the oats, baking powder and banana in a bowl. Pour into a small baking dish and bake for approximately 15 minutes or until crispy and lightly browned on the top, then top with raspberries and blueberries and enjoy!

    1. I was wondering if I could substitute almond milk instead of using coconut milk? :-)

      1. Yes, but if you did, it wouldn't taste of coconut! I have a recipe for regular baked oatmeal using almond milk on my blog already :)

    3. Do you eat it hot from the oven or could you let it cool down to eat later? I leave my house really early in the morning for University and I don't fancy breakfast at that time and wait until I have arrived at Uni to have my breakfast so I am always looking for different options!

      1. I eat it hot from the oven, straight away.
        I'm not sure what it would taste like cold, it might be a bit chewy? Give it a go though :)

      2. I guess I keep thinking of it as a big breakfast muffin, which is why I thought it might be ok to eat later on, but I think you're right, it could be a bit chewy! I'll let you know if I do try it though

    4. Could you give an approximation for the size of the baking dish? I don't want to dirty too many dishes through trial and error (:

      1. Hey!
        Since you've got 1/2 cup oats and 1/2 cup liquid, plus let's say it's around 1/2 cup mashed banana, you'd want about a 1 1/2 cup sized baking dish, so about 350-400ml? :)

    5. Is it possible to substitute the banana for any other fruit?

      1. Other fruit doesn't really mash up the same! You could probably use applesauce, or just use some liquid sweetener instead
