It's been a couple of weeks, but I am back with another recipe from Seriously Delish. I have been making my way through this cook book as quickly as I can, but sometime life gets in the way, and baking my way through my favorite cookbook isn't paying the bills (yet, anyways). This weekend the boyfriend and I went hiking on Camelback mountain, which a just a quick 5 minute drive form our house, and broke in our new hiking boots. Gotta get 'em ready for our trip to Hawaii this December.
Once we got home we were famished, and in just 25 minutes we were in absolute breakfast bliss! It was so good we may or may not have made it again on Sunday for breakfast. Not mad about it. You could really make this breakfast to your own liking, using whatever fruits/berries are in season. I've got my eyes (and stomach) set on a cranberry orange version next!
Baked Berry Oatmeal with Browned Butter
- 1 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1/2 cup lightly packed brown sugar
- 3/4 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 1 tbsp. butter, melted
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 egg, lightly whisked
- 1/3 cup raspberries
- 1/3 cup blackberries
- 2 tbsp. browned butter*, for drizzling
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare a small baking dish (serves 2-4 people) with non-stick cooking spray.
In a small medium bowl whisk together the oats, baking powder, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt.
In a small bowl whisk together the milk, oil, melted butter, vanilla, and egg. Add into the oat mixture and stir until the oats are coated with the wet ingredients. Gently fold in the berries.
Pour the mixture into your baking dish and bake in the oven for 25 minutes. Remove form the oven and allow to rest for 2 minutes or so (you don't wanna burn the roof of your mouth!). Drizzle with the browned butter and serve warm.
*How to brown butter: place butter in a small skillet over medium heat. Allow the butter to melt; whisking frequently. The butter will foam up and then begin to settle. Watch closely, as once the foam settles, small brown flecks will begin to appear at the bottom of the pan. Once the butter takes on a nutty aroma, remove from the heat to stop it from burning. Set aside in a small bowl until ready to use.
