Breakfast has always been a struggle for me. I cannot eat at 6 or 7am in the morning. I am more a Brunch person which means around 10:30am I could eat whatever you put in front of me.
We all know that breakfast is important and I do want to be a good role model for Birdie so I do try harder this time. I found this recipe for baked oatmeal and it is delicious. I can portion it anyway I want. I had a short spell of creativity and used a regular cup to cut out the round baked oatmeal since it firms up nicely.
That is about as creative as I can get when it comes to the look of my food. It is made for consumption first and to look good second. Most of the time it is in danger of being consumed immediately by husband or Bird or both.
Baked Blueberry Oatmeal with Coconut Milk
Adapted from Family Fresh Cooking
• 1 1/2 cups large flaked Oats
• 2-3 dried Ginger cut into small pieces
• 1/2 teaspoon Salt
• 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
• 4 cups Almond Milk
• 2 cups Coconut Milk
• 2 cups frozen Blueberries
• 1/4 cup dried cherries cut into small pieces
• 1/4 cup unsweetened Coconut Flakes and 1/4 cup slivered almonds
Preheat oven to 180C degrees.
Lightly grease a baking dish. Mix all the ingredients together until well blended. Then bake it for about an hour. It will firm up once refrigerated.
As you can see in the pictures.
I went fancy and made these pretty looking babies……
They also freeze nicely if you went overboard like I did and made way too much before going on a long trip to Germany haha.
What can I say – I am often impulsive when it comes to cooking and baking. I figured I could spend soo much time and sleep instead. I guess, I need to have a discussion with Birdie on the length of her sleep. It is 1,5-2 hours at a time during the night.
I don’t know what happened to my baby that slept for 4 hours at a time and woke up a happy camper. I seriously don’t.
