baked pumpkin spice oatmeal {SRC}

by Heather

Hello and welcome to a fresh week!  Today I spent all of the kid’s nap time doing food prep for the week.  Here’s what I prepped:

IMG_4932
  • roasted tomatillos and onions to be blended for a sauce
  • cleaned and chopped grapes, strawberries, red cabbage, celery, carrots and onion for munching and cooking
  • made a batch of peanut butter coconut hemp-oatmeal bars
  • chopped pork for dinner
  • hardboiled then peeled eggs
  • made a batch of cheddar broccoli egg muffins
  • baked salmon for lunches throughout the week
  • made a snack box for the hubs (grapes, cheddar sticks and celery with peanut butter)

It’s going to be so nice to have all the fruits and veggies chopped along with other easy to grab snacks.

On to more food prep with my Secret Recipe Club reveal!  I was assigned Amy’s Cooking Adventure.  Amy is a mama of two like me!  Here’s what she says about herself: “I’m a SAHM of two, foodie blogger, & lover of books.  I cook healthy meals, but I always save room for dessert!”  Her family is just too cute, you’ve gotta check em out.

So as I was perusing her recipes I decided I needed a breakfast recipe.  I was immediately drawn to the green pancakes but ultimately decided on the baked pumpkin spice oatmeal for two reasons.  First I already had a can of pumpkin open in the fridge, and secondly once a week I leave the house early before the kids are awake so I like to have breakfast prepped the night before so I don’t have to cook in the morning.  Okay and thirdly I really wanted to bake in these adorable individual polish pottery bowls my brother gave me.  They are my favorite and I use them pretty much every single day.

The oatmeal batter came together super quickly and since I already had the oven going for dinner, I just threw them in with it.  The substitutions I made were to use a chopped up ripe banana in place of the honey, and I also did not add the chocolate chips or walnuts.  I really try to keep breakfast sugar free since we don’t need it and I find for myself extra sugar first thing in the morning will make me want more of it throughout the day.  Plus the banana added just the right amount of sweetness.  My little kiddos know no difference so they don’t mind. 🙂

The texture was perfect and the flavor spot on.  I ate mine (rewarmed up) with a spoonful of almond butter.  I loved that it was way less messy than oatmeal for Zoe since she normally eats our standard custard oats with her hands.  The time savings alone in the morning makes me want to add baked oatmeal to my food prep routine.  I’m thinking little muffins though instead of individual ramekins.  It was an awesome recipe I’d definitely make again!

What a delicious and healthy breakfast! I’ve made baked oatmeal many times – but never in individual portions – I think that’s a great idea!
