I’ve seen a lot of talk about “boatmeal” (baked oatmeal) on several different blogs, but it was this post on Katie’s blog last week that sold it for me. I finally had to see what all the fuss was about, & luckily, I had all the ingredients on hand to make my own cinnamon roll baked oatmeal.
I followed Katie’s recipe exactly, except for one thing – I totally forgot to add the creamer, juice, or water. I was so mad at myself too, because I had this “sweet cream” coffee creamer I thought would taste amazing!
Regardless, the oatmeal still turned out rather deliciously! Mine looks a little bit different than Katie’s, because I didn’t have a small ramekin to bake mine in. Instead, I used a mini loaf pan (the same I used for the sweet potato meatloaf).
I topped mine with a drizzle of syrup & some brown sugar… yum.
I enjoyed this so much, I tried boatmeal again the following morning! I’m not exactly sure which recipe I followed, but you can check out several of Katie’s oatmeal concoctions (& other tasty treats!) on her recipe page.
What I do remember is that this time around, I added in chocolate chips & topped it with some powdered sugar!
I think these make amazing breakfasts, but would also be delicious as desserts, don’t you think?
This evening I’m headed back into work for school orientation night. It’s always hard to go back to work once you’re at home, & the dreary weather we’re experiencing in PA isn’t helping too much. Maybe I’ll make myself some boatmeal to warm up a bit?
Have you ever tried baked oatmeal? If so, what are your “add-ins”?
