I’m eating this baked chocolate strawberry oatmeal as I write up this post, and y’all? MMM! So good. It’s perfect for this morning, when we still had a chill in the air by 7:30. In May. WOW. But anyway, I digress.
Back to talking about this oatmeal.
Why haven’t I put it on the blog sooner? It’s not usually my go-to. This chocolate cherry one is. But our local grocery store had organic strawberries on sale for SUPER cheap and they were SUPER good, so I bought a lot of containers. Thus, this oatmeal has been made a few times. Also strawberry French toast oatmeal. And strawberry jam. And strawberry pie oatmeal (which you could follow this recipe for and swap blueberries for cut-up strawberries. Easy peasy!).
Nearly every single day, I make a golden milk latte. No coffee for me though, so it’s basically turmeric and other spices and adaptogens in the walnut/pepitas milk I make (1/2 cup walnuts/pepitas combined, 6 cups water, 12 medjool dates – blend) or my homemade cashew milk. But I thought I’d make it a little easier on myself by making a premade mix so I didn’t have to open up all of my spices and containers each time.
You know I’m all about food prepping these days, so it made sense to simplify this too. 🙂
Finally! Not another oatmeal! And this one is PERFECT for the beautiful fall weather we’re not really experiencing here in Phoenix… LOL. Honestly, I don’t care if it’s still over 90F. I’m drinking this creamy, dreamy, delicious pumpkin spice golden milk latte anyway. Bet. 😉
I’m NOT a coffee drinker, so anything called “latte” in my book doesn’t have coffee. But if you want to add some, feel free to replace some of the water with it. My version has no caffeine, no refined sugar, and no hard-to-find or artificial ingredients. It’s easy peasy from start to finish, so let’s do this.
Who’s surprised that this is another baked oatmeal recipe? No, not you? Yeah, me either. But this one was inspired by an air fryer cookbook I received for review from a friend of mine. This is not the recipe from her book, but I can’t wait to try that one (along with all the other ones in there because they all sound AMAZING)!
So, without further ado, thank you to Tess Challis for The Essential Vegan Air Fryer Cookbook! Because without it, we would not have this Baked Banana Churro Oatmeal today!
All right. I can’t seem to stop with the new baked oatmeals. That’s all I’m experimenting with these days, I guess. I love me some breakfast – especially when it’s baked oatmeal. So here you go. Here’s another one with peanut butter because yum. Peanut butter and blueberry baked oatmeal, your new favorite breakfast.
Okay, yeah. Another baked oatmeal. This one was by request though. Husband loves cinnamon raisin (while I think it’s gross – we all know that raisins are a big reason why we have trust issues because they should be chocolate chips), so I whipped this one up. Hopefully you raisin-loving weirdos enjoy this one. 😉
Yup. Another baked oatmeal. I’m on a roll with these lately. Though I need to ask this question: How was this not already a recipe on this blog?! It’s another one that isn’t groundbreaking. Not. At. All. It should have been up here a long time ago, but I honestly don’t think I made it before. Definitely won’t make that mistake again. LOL.
It’s the perfect marriage of peanut butter and chocolate – so move over, Reese’s, with your nonvegan candy. Let’s eat PB and chocolate chips for breakfast and call it a damn good day, shall we? 🙂
I’m back with a new baked oatmeal! Because what would this blog be without ANOTHER baked oatmeal recipe. Honestly. We don’t have enough of those around here, do we?
This one isn’t super groundbreaking. In fact, none of them are. But still. I think it’s delicious. A scrumptious combo that threw together nicely and made me super happy when it came out of the oven lookin’ like a whole snack. Well, lookin’ like a whole meal, to be honest. Nommm.
It’s that time, y’all! PUMPKIN time!! I’m over here, sipping on a pumpkin pie smoothie (newer recipe coming soon!), having just finished writing a book, already wanting more of this pumpkin french toast oatmeal. Breakfast has never been more delicious this fall. Nommm. Let’s do it!
It’s super simple, you guys. I wouldn’t have it any other way. Simply mashed a banana in a bowl, add water, pumpkin, maple syrup, and spices, and then soak the bread. After you’ve added your oats and nuts, you pop it into the oven and wait (im)patiently for it to bake. Ta-da! Easy peasy fall-breakfast squeezy.
Pumpkin stuff is my jam! If it’s yours too, check out my Pumpkin Pecan Muffins, Pumpkin Pie Almond Butter Cookies, and No-Bake Pumpkin Pie. And if you love oatmeal like I do, try any of my other Baked Oatmeals like Carrot Cake, Chocolate Zucchini, Blueberry Pie, and Cookie Dough. YUM!
Let me know if you try this recipe! Comment below, rate it, or take a photo and tag me @fruitsohard or #fruitsohard on Instagram. I’d love to see your creations. And don’t forget to cultivate some positivity and gratitude today. Tell me in the comments what you’re grateful for if you’d like. Vibe high, my friends!
Try this pumpkin french toast oatmeal topped with pecans for a scrumptious fall breakfast that's easy to make! Totally vegan and can be GF!
- 1 ripe banana, mashed
- 3 tbsp water/nondairy milk
- 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- 1/8 tsp cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 1/8 tsp turmeric
- 1 dash black pepper
- 1 tbsp ground flax/chia
- 1 slice bread (use GF if GF / I like whole-wheat hot dog or hamburger buns for their thickness)
- 1/4 cup oats
- 1-2 tbsp pecan pieces
Preheat oven at 375 degrees F (190 C) and ready your ramekin (either with parchment paper or nonstick spray - I choose to bake this oatmeal without either).
In a medium bowl, mix mashed banana, water/milk, pumpkin maple syrup, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, turmeric, black pepper, and flax well.
Add chunks of bread and mix them so they soak the mixture up. Add oats and mix to combine. Then add pecan pieces and mix (or leave some to sprinkle on top).
Pour mixture into your ramekin and bake for 20-24 minutes. Let cool slightly before enjoying!
