Now I stated before, we try to eat as much whole, unprocessed food as possible and while there are a trillion upsides to this type of diet the one (unfortunate) downside is the cost. So, when planning meals during the week I try to balance our food budget by throwing in some meatless options, like eggs, beans, coconut flour pancakes and oatmeal. And while regular oatmeal with all the toppings is a kid favorite around here, baked oatmeal is a more adult favorite!! It's super easy, in fact you probably have all of these ingredients in your house right now!
Baked Nut Butter, Banana and Blueberry Oatmeal
2 cups old fashioned rolled oats
1 3/4 cups milk (preferably raw or low pasteurized, non-homogenized)
1 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp sea salt
2 cups blueberries (fresh or frozen) divided
2 tbsp grass fed butter, softened
1/2 cup nut butter (almond, cashew, peanut, etc)
1/4 cup raw honey
Preheat oven to 350. Grease a 2 quart baking pan with either butter or coconut oil. Slice bananas and lay in the pan, top with 1/2 of the blueberries. Mix all the dry ingredients and pour evenly in the pan. Mix all the wet ingredients and pour over the dry ingredients. Top with the rest of the berries and bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.
Top with more grass fed butter and raw milk, eat and ENJOY!!
