Chocolate and strawberries sweeten up breakfast in this baked oatmeal that is delicious and warms you from the inside out
Slightly more than a week to go until Valentine’s Day! Have you decided how you are going to celebrate? If your plans involve breakfast in anyway, you’ll want to save this recipe. Whether you are planning on surprising your special someone with breakfast in bed or planning to host a gal-entine’s brunch with your girlfriends, my Strawberry Chocolate Baked Oatmeal is the perfect addition to your breakfast repertoire!
The recipe makes 6 servings. If you are just cooking for two, the baked oatmeal re-heats nicely in the microwave for a special breakfast the next few days also!
Is breakfast in bed or a big brunch part of your Valentine’s Day plans? I’d love to hear!
PS- How cute is this spoon? I couldn’t resist it when I saw it on Milk + Honey’s Etsy page. It’s too cute for Valentine’s Day!
- 2 cups old fashioned oats
- 1/4 of a cup light brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup sliced strawberries
- 1/2 of a cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 2 cups almond milk (regular milk is fine too, I just like almond milk!)
- 1 large egg
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
Preheat your oven to 375 Degrees. Spray your baking dish with non-stick spray.
In a large bowl, mix the oatmeal, brown sugar, cinnamon, baking powder and salt together until well combined.
Stir in half of the strawberries and half of the chocolate chips.
Pour mixture into prepared baking dish.
Arrange remaining strawberries and chocolate chips on top of mixture.
In another bowl, whisk together the milk, egg and vanilla.
Pour the milk mixture over the oats, making sure all of the oats are wet.
Bake for 30-40 minutes, until edges brown and you can no longer see the moving milk mixture.
Allow to cool for a few minutes and then serve warm.
