I’ve been making a lot of things with oatmeal this winter, and this latest creation, with blueberry and coconut flakes, is delicious. It came out nice and moist, and tasted like a healthy version of blueberry pie.
Recipe is adapted from the “two peas & their pod” blog (http://www.twopeasandtheirpod.com/baked-blueberry-coconut-oatmeal/)
2 cups oats
1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 cups milk (I used unsweetened almond milk)
2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
1 4 oz. container unsweetened applesauce
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup blueberries
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine dry ingredients in a bowl. Combine wet ingredients in another bowl and then stir into dry ingredients. Mix in blueberries. Pour oatmeal mixture into a greased 8×8 baking dish and bake for 35-40 minutes.
