Red White and Blue Baked Oatmeal

For me, breakfast consists of oatmeal on the weekdays and eggs on the weekends. On holidays though, I like to make something a little more fancy- like waffles or pancakes. For 4th of July this year, I’m doing baked oatmeal! But not any baked oatmeal, themed baked oatmeal! Yeah, it’s a little corny and I know my dad will laugh at me, but oh well. Whatever floats your boat right? Even if it’s carefully constructing a flag out of fruit 🙂

Red, White and Blue Baked Oatmeal

Red White and Blue Baked Oatmeal 

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups old fashioned oats

1 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

2/3 cup organic whole milk

2 tbsp organic pure maple syrup

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 egg

Bananas

Strawberries

Blueberries

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a 8×8 baking dish with cooking oil. In a bowl, mix together oats, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together milk, maple syrup, vanilla and egg. Add in dry oat mixture and mix all together. Stir in 3 tablespoons each of chopped bananas, chopped strawberries, and blueberries. Pour mixture into prepared baking dish. Top with more bananas, strawberries, and blueberries to make flag (see picture) or a red, white, and blue “firework” dots. Bake for 25 minutes.

Leftovers? Let oatmeal sit out until hardened. And then, ta-da! On-the-go oatmeal squares! Just store in the fridge.

  2. Well, if your dad laughs, just threaten to not let him have any. That should make him stop laughing in a hurry, because this looks delicious!

    • Thanks!
      Haha exactly! Only problem is, when threatened, he tends to steal and hoard the food :/ I might have to guard this…
