When I make a recipe I have a few rules:
1.it needs to be easy to make (due to my chronic fatigue syndrome)
2.it should be healthy
3.it’s hopefully semi low oxalate
4.it doesn’t have any ingredients to cause a flare up of GI pain
I saw this recipe on Pinterest and knew I needed to make it, stat. Luckily, I had all the ingredients so I made this for our Saturday morning breakfast. I modified the recipe a bit and it was so freakin’ good. And it's great to snack on all week.
You can eat it as is, but I like my oatmeal creamy, so I added a splash of milk and stirred it to get the proper consistency.
2 c rolled oats
¼ c instant oats
1/3 c brown sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 c walnuts
1 c berries (I used frozen strawberries)
2 Tbl oat bran, opt
2 Tbl ground flax meal, opt
¼ c coconut flakes, opt
3 Tbl coconut oil, melted, (or butter)
2 c milk
1 Tbl vanilla
Cinnamon, to taste
Freshly ground nutmeg, to taste
1 Tbl maple syrup
Honey, for drizzling, opt
1 Banana, for topping
Preheat oven to 375F.
Spray 9x13 pan with cooking spray; add dry ingredients.
Whisk together wet ingredients and pour over oats. Slice banana and arrange slices on top. Drizzle honey over the top.
Bake 35-40 minutes until golden brown.
Spoon into bowl and, if desired, add half n half or milk and stir to desired consistency.
