Baked Oats Variations & Sauce

For those who know me, they know that during the summer months I ate Overnight Oats like it was a religion. I was absolutely obsessed.

Now that it’s gotten colder though, cold oats in the morning just don’t do the trick. That’s why I decided to try out my Triple-Chocolate Baked Oats last week. Since then, I’ve gotten creative with how to change up this easy and delicious recipe. Here are a couple of my latest recipes!

Cinnamon Apple Baked Oats

Baked Oats Base Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
  • 2 teaspoons all natural sugar & stevia blend
  • 1/4 cup vanilla unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 medium banana mashed
  • Cinnamon to taste
  • Dash of vanilla extract
  • Dash of salt

Instructions: Turn your oven on to 375 degrees. While that heats up, spray a single-serving ramekin with coconut oil so your baked oats won’t stick. Then, mix all dry ingredients in the ramekin. Mix in wet ingredients once combined. After mixture is combined, add in creative variation (suggestions listed below). Make sure all additives are covered so the baking doesn’t dry them out.

Once the oven is heated up, cover the oats with tinfoil and put the oats in for 20 minutes. Uncover the oats and cook for another 5 minutes. Once it’s somewhat golden/crispy on top, take it out and let it cool for a minute. Then enjoy either straight from the ramekin or transfer to another plate.

Here are the two variations that I’ve experimented with this week (both of which were delicious):

  • Blueberry & Coconut
    • 1/4 cup blueberries
    • Add in a tablespoon of coconut
    • A small amount of coconut to put on top the oats
    • Dash of cinnamon to top the oats
  • Cinnamon Apple & Raisin
    • Chop up 1/4 cup worth apple of choice
    • Add in a tablespoon of raisins
    • A couple small slices of apple to top the oats
    • Dash of cinnamon to top the oats

Vanilla Cinnamon Sauce Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 tablespoons ISO100 vanilla protein powder
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla unsweetened almond milk
  • Cinnamon to taste

Instructions: Mix together the ingredients in a small bowl. Add additional protein powder if you’d like a thicker consistency. Once the oats have been placed upside down on a plate, slowly pour the sauce on the oats. Top the oats with the necessary additives based on the recipe you’re following.

Then sit back and enjoy! What creative combinations have you come up with?
