Treat yourself to this deliciously indulgent baked oatmeal. It's warm, fruity and topped with a cocoa-cashew cream.


Print Add Add To My Grocery List

Ingredients:

1/2 cup frozen strawberries or fresh organic strawberries
1 cup unsweetened vanilla soy, hemp or almond milk
2/3 cup rolled oats
2 tablespoons flax seeds, ground
2 tablespoons walnuts
1 tablespoon poppy seeds
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 large banana, sliced
1/2 cup raspberries (frozen or fresh)
2 tablespoons raisins
2 dates, chopped, divided
3 tablespoons raw cashews
2 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa powder

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Blend strawberries and almond milk. Pour into a large pie dish.

In a bowl, mix oats, flax seeds, walnuts, poppy seeds, cinnamon, banana, raspberries, raisins and half of the chopped dates.

Add to the pie dish; mix thoroughly. Bake for 20 minutes.

While the oats are baking, prepare cocoa-cashew cream topping. In a blender, process cashews to a powder, then add remaining dates, cocoa powder and a bit of non-dairy milk. Blend to desired consistency.

Let oatmeal cool for a few minutes, then top it with the cocoa-cashew cream.

This is incredibly delicious! My teenage son went for seconds - and he doesn't like oatmeal. The sweetness is perfect.

Lately I have decided to boost the nutritional content of this recipe by adding about a handful (15 g) of spinach and some dried goji berries to the nut cream topping. Since this recipe is so calcium-rich, I figured a little more vitamin A and vitamin K can't hurt.

I also decided to alter the nut cream a bit. Rather than using only cashews, I decided to use a few grams of pecans, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, and cashews. They all have their own different nutritional strengths (pecans are rich in antioxidants, hemp seeds are hi in protein and omega-3s, pumpkin seeds are high in zinc and protein, sunflower seeds are a great source of vitamin E and cashews are just yummy), so I figured, why not mix them all up? Once the nut cream has been spread on top, then I sprinkle the flaxseeds and some reduced-fat shredded coconut on top. Try it and let me know what you think.

When the directions say "Blend strawberries and almond milk," does it mean just mix together with a spoon or blend in a mixer?

My son and I have an allergy to flaxseeds. Can hemp seeds be used in place of the flaxseeds?

Will definitely try this and let you know how it turns out. Since the blended strawberries/milk get mixed withthe other ingredients, I will do that in a bowl and then pour everything into the pie plate. You said 'large ' - I presume you meant a 9 inch pie plate?

:I would never recommend pureeing the strawberries unless you are only serving it at home. My daughter has an anaphylactic reaction to strawberries and to hide them seems very odd to me... If you can see them you can avoid that dish but if they are hidden, all bets are off. Looks delicious though. I would use mango or peach, or cherries to blend in the milk...

This was a delicious, warm breakfast on a foggy Sunday morning. I forgot about the topping and didn't even need it. Can't wait for next weekend!

This was quite delicious! We didn't have the poppy seeds so we just left it out. Still great! The cocoa-cashew cream didn't quite come out very well, but still tasted awesome!

I tried this and I like the technique but found that the flavor was off because there were too many competing tastes. I will try it again but substitute more bananas in place of the berries as one version or all berries and a vanilla topping for another. Also, I could not get good results making the topping in my Vitamix, there was not enough food to engage the blades so I'll try a double batch of topping next time. The nice thing is that I can mix this up and put it to bake while I go and take my shower!

yummy! I used Frozen cherries instead of raspberries and left out the poppy seeds. Doubled the recipe (I double every ETL recipe to have leftovers and often the suggested serving size seems small to me), so I baked it for about 40 min. I left out the topping because we are trying to monitor nut intake, and it tasted delish without out. I highly recommend you try it with the frozen cherries.

giving it a 3 rating, does not work with gluten free, even though i put in chia and more flax as a thickener, I think I would stay with my , Quinoa breakfast hot bowl, heating up 1 1/2 c almond milk 1/4 frozen raspberries , half to full tsp of cinnamon , once boiled add 3/4c of quinoa, cook at medlow for 15-20 min. in bowl mash a little banana, walnuts, hemp seed with a little raisin or currants, when cooked add the quinoa for 15-20min . very good and more alkaline When it comes to pies I will serve with macadamian date crust add berries and banana as filling and do any other natural fruit topping (yum).

 This was pretty good but a little odd.  Too much banana for the small serving size which was too small.  We need to double this when we make it again. It also was a strange mixture of crunchy due to the almonds and the coconut and yet lacking in substance a bit due to the small serving size or need for more oatmeal.
