I really want to try this recipe. I didn’t even know you could bake oatmeal! I learn something new everyday.

Yield: Serves 6

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 40 minutes

Total Time: 50 minutes

Ingredients:

2 cups rolled oats
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup chopped almonds
2 cups Almond Breeze Vanilla Unsweetened Almond Milk
1 large egg
3 tablespoons coconut oil, melted and cooled slightly (or melted and cooled butter)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
1 1/2 cups chopped peaches
Peach slices for the top, optional

Directions:

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8×8 square baking dish and set aside.

2. In a medium bowl, mix together the oats, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and almonds.

3. In another medium bowl, whisk together the almond milk, egg, coconut oil, vanilla, and almond extract.

4. Arrange the chopped peaches on the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Pour the oat mixture evenly over the peaches. Pour the almond milk mixture over the oats. Gently shake the baking dish to make sure the milk covers the oats evenly. If desired, add a few sliced peaches to the top of the oatmeal. It makes the oatmeal look pretty:)

5. Bake for 40 minutes, until the top is golden and oatmeal is set. Let cool for 5 minutes and serve warm.

Note-this baked oatmeal is great reheated in the microwave. We like to add a splash of almond milk for extra creaminess! This recipe can easily be doubled for a 9×13 pan. Use gluten-free oats to make this recipe gluten-free.

Morning! My husband’s favorite ice cream is mint chocolate chip. My son loves it too. I decided to choose this one because I thought they both would like it. How about you?

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup plain or vanilla yogurt of choice, or 1 cup full-fat canned coconut milk (I used Silk soy yogurt, and Wholesoy works too. I’m sure many other brands work, but I’ve only tried these pops with the two brands mentioned.)
  • 1/16 to 1/4 tsp pure peppermint extract (or more), depending on desired mint strength
  • 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1-3 stevia packets or 1-3 tbsp sugar or liquid sweetener of choice (Sweetener amount will depend on your choice of yogurt, as well as your personal taste preferences. Remember that the pops will be less sweet once frozen.)
  • scant 1/16 tsp salt
  • optional: packed 1/2 cup spinach (20g), or food coloring as desired (The pictured pops have spinach, not food coloring. You cannot taste it at all!)
  • optional: handful of chocolate chips or mini chips

Directions:

If using spinach, blend all ingredients until completely smooth. (If not using spinach, combine all ingredients in a large bowl or pyrex measuring cup.) Pour into popsicle molds, or paper cups with spoons as the sticks. Freeze completely, then pop out and enjoy.
