Equipment

  • Mixing Bowls
  • Large spoon or spatula
  • 8 or 9-inch Baking Dish

Ingredients

  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 large eggs beaten
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • ¼ cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup vanilla Greek yogurt this is the same amount as a 5.3 ounce container
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut milk

Instructions

  • Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine the rolled oats, cinnamon, salt, and baking powder. Give the dry ingredients a couple of stirs. You want to distribute all of the spices and oats evenly, so there are no clubs when you pour in the wet ingredients. Set the dry ingredients aside.
  • In another large mixing bowl, whisk together the brown sugar and eggs until smooth. 
  • Into the sugar and egg, whisk in the yogurt, vanilla, and oil.
  • Then slowly whisk in the coconut milk.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and stir until everything is combined. If the oats seem dry, then add a little more coconut milk until it covers the oats. You want the batter to be wet but not soupy.
  • Spray an 8 or 9-inch baking pan with cooking spray and pour the oat mixture into the baking pan. Using a spatula or spoon and push down the oats so the liquid covers the oats.
  • Bake for 30 - 35 minutes or until the center sets. Stick a toothpick or sharp knife into the center of the oatmeal bake, and it will come out clean with only a few crumbs sticking to it when done.
  • Remove from oven and let cool for about 3 minutes. Serve warm with yogurt, fruit, and pure maple syrup.

Notes

How to Store
To meal prep
Baked oatmeal is genuinely a meal prep superstar. First, you can assemble the ingredients into a pan the night before, cover and store it in the refrigerator, and then remove the cover and cook the baked oatmeal when you wake up in the morning.
If you want the baked oatmeal to be ready for a fast breakfast during the week, then you can cook it on Sunday. After the oatmeal cools, cut into portions and either place into a glass container or storage bag. You can wrap individually in plastic wrap to quickly grab in the morning as your running out the door.
To reheat, place the baked oatmeal on a plate and heat on high for 45 - 60 seconds or until hot. 
To freeze
After the baked oatmeal cooks and cools, cut it into portions, wrap it in plastic wrap, and place it into a freezer bag. Frozen baked oatmeal will stay fresh in the freezer for up to 3 months. 
To reheat, remove the plastic wrap and place onto a microwave-safe dish, and heat on high for 1-2 minutes or until hot. It’s helpful to wrap in a paper towel to keep the oatmeal from drying out.
