I rarely eat breakfast. When I was at school, I would eat a quick bowl of cereal before running off to class, and on the weekends, I’ll admit I probably wasn’t in the breakfast mood after a late night of consuming alcohol. Now That I’m unemployed and living back at home (kinda pathetic sounding, I know, but I’m looking!) I don’t wake up in time to eat breakfast. However when I woke up today, no matter that it was 10 o’clock, I wanted oatmeal.
I was planning on baking up some lemon macadamia cupcakes, but my mom, who would be the only person in the house who would help me eat them, just left on a trip to India. So I decided to hold off.
I was feeling adventurous today and wanted to make an oatmeal I had never had before. One of my favorite bloggers, Chocolate Covered Katie always makes the most delicious looking oatmeals, so I decided to try a spin off of her ‘boatmeal‘ or baked oatmeal.
Have you ever tried this? I discovered it yesterday… in my fridge. It’s sooo good, and it tastes just like regular yogurt! This has to be my favorite type of soygurt (=soy yogurt) i’ve ever tried. Of course, nothing compares to coconut milk yogurt, my absolute favorite, but little grocery store only sells one type of dairy free yogurt. (But now i’m going to have to find out where my mom buys this stuff!)
Anyway, back to the oatmeal. I decided I did not want to bake the soygurt in the oatmeal, What if it curdled or tasted gross? Then I would have ruined the last container of this deliciousness! So, I just let the key lime pie flavor influence me. I made a banana, pineapple, and coconut oatmeal. And it was delicious, if I do say so myself!
Baked Hawaiian Oatmeal
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/3 cup soy milk
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 pinch salt
1/2 banana, mushed up
1/4 cup pineapple tidbits
1 tablespoon coconut butter
Mix all the ingredients together, and put them in a small baking dish. (I used 2 small ramekins) Bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes, then broil for about 3 more minutes.
I topped mine with a big ‘ol dollop of silk live key lime pie yogurt (Of course!) a drizzle of more coconut butter, more pineapple tidbits, and a few chopped up macadamia nuts. It was sooo good!
It was so good, the warm oatmeal with both cold and warm pineapple, and cold oatmeal! yummmy! Here’s another shot, just in case you need some more convincing:
I wish it could have had a little more variety color wise, but I’m not complaining. It was gooey nummy heaven. I hope you all try this!
p.s.- I changed the layout of the blog… The old one just wasn’t me… And I wanted something a little more basic and streamline.
