my baked oatmeal obsession.

this recipe comes from my husband's cousin, bethany. you can find it on her food blog here.

upon returning home from the hospital after my delivery, this dish was brought over by my mother-in-law. my appetite did not dwindle after giving birth. if anything, i felt ravenous for something homemade after having been fed ice chips and carry-out food from the days prior.

this dish really hit the spot. and did so at breakfast, many lunches, and in-between meals. (hey, i was nursing - i was allowed to eat all i want!) i have made pan after pan after pan of this stuff. in double batches. the number of pans i've consumed over the last 4 weeks is absurd. but it's sooo delicious.

here's the recipe:

Mix together the following dry ingredients in a mixing bowl:

3 cups Rolled Oats
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp cinnamon. 
Then melt the following ingredients together in a saucepan:

3/4 cup honey (though you can substitute brown sugar or maple syrup)
1 stick butter
Once melted, whisk in: 
1 cup coconut milk
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
Pour the wet ingredients over the oat mixture and mix very well together. 
Add in 2 cups of chopped fruit - I used 1 peach and a handful of blueberries, but you can be creative! 

Bake @ 350 degrees for 25 mins.
See the link to the original recipe for ideas for variations to the recipe. She suggested serving with greek yogurt or milk poured over top, but I happen to enjoy it as is.
