Baked Steel Cut Oats with Apples & Coconut

Yields: Approximately 6 servings

INGREDIENTS:

  • 3/4 cup steel cut oatmeal
  • 1/2 cup sliced nuts (I used a combination of cashews, almonds, pistachios, walnuts and pecans)
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut, unsweetened
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 small apple, diced
  • 2 cups unsweetened almond or coconut milk
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter or ghee, melted and cooled slightly
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. In a small bowl, mix together the oats, the nuts, coconut, baking powder, cinnamon, and sea salt.
  2. In another bowl, whisk together the almond milk, maple syrup, egg, butter, and vanilla. Pour the milk mixture over the oat mixture and stir to combine.
  3. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  4. Give mixture a good stir and sprinkle apple pieces on top. Pour into an 8-inch square baking dish.
  5. Bake for 55 to 60 minutes depending on your oven but I would definitely advise watching it so it does not brown too quickly. Remove from the oven, and allow to cool for a few minutes before serving.
