It’s no surprise that we absolutely LOVE baked oatmeal in our home. They are so easy to prep in advance, and they last well in the fridge to enjoy through the week.
I often make baked oats for brunch when we are entertaining friends because it’s so good at feeding a crowd, and again – you can prep it in advance. (See the common theme here? I love a good meal-prep recipe! haha).
All-in-all, this comforting breakfast recipe satisfies all eaters, vegan or not, and can be prepared for all sorts of occasions! I really think you’re going to love it.
Now, let me get into how to make this simple bake!
It’s so easy to make this baked oatmeal recipe. Anyone can do it, which is why I have given it my Newbie Cook stamp of approval.
First, we’ll add all of our dry ingredients (oats, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, hemp hearts, ground chia, and walnuts) to a rectangle 8×11-inch baking dish. Mix together.
Next, we’ll add all the wet ingredients (shaved apple, apple sauce, almond milk, avocado oil, vanilla and maple syrup) to the dish. Whisk everything to combine.
Top with apple slices and walnuts and bake in the oven at 350F/180C for 30-35 minutes, or until golden on the edges.
I’m often asked what type of oats to use in my recipes. There are so many different types of oats, and it can be confusing to know which variety you need.
For this recipe, and in most of my recipes, I’ve used rolled oats.
Rolled oats are very popular and verqsatile. They have a chewy, soft texture, and a creamy consistency when cooked.
My oats brand of choice is One Degree Organic Foods, Sprouted Rolled Oats. They bake beautifully in this recipe!
I love supporting One Degree Organic Foods because of their 100% transparency in production process from their farm to your table. You can even scan the QR code on each package to find out about the farmers who made your oats! Like, how cool is that?
One Degree Organic Foods believes in sustainable farming practices and 100% organic ingredients. All-in-all, I love the initiative of this company for creating oats that taste good, and that are good for you, the farmer, and the planet.
As mentioned above, One Degree Organic Foods have sponsored this blog post. I only work with companies that I know and love.
In fact, this recipe was inspired by one of the farmer’s behind One Degree Organics, Kristen, from River Valley Specialty Farms. A Canadian hemp farm in Manitoba.
River Valley Specialty Farms is owned and operated by James and Kristen, a brother-sister team committed to organic farming and sustainable farming practices. They have successfully transitioned 2,000 acres of land, originally used by their parents to grow potatoes and conventional grains, into organic production.
