Baked S'mores Oatmeal with Browned Butter

That's right.  S'mores. For breakfast. The last time I made baked oatmeal, I ended up making it two days in a row. My taste buds were extra happy that weekend. This time I put a twist on the original fruit-based baked oatmeal and tossed in some chocolate chips and marshmallows instead. Channeling every inner childhood dream of dessert for breakfast. 

Baked S'mores 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 light coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tbsp. butter, melted
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 egg, lightly whisked
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup mini marshmallows
  • 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 coconut 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 chocolate chips and the marshmallows. 

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.
