Coffee Baked Oatmeal
When coffee just isn’t enough to get you up out of bed, coffee spiked oatmeal just might do the trick. This coffee baked oatmeal is such a treat- oats baked with coffee and cashew milk and topped off with a dollop of peanut butter. Yes, please!
I have been dying to combine my two greatest loves for quite some time- coffee and oatmeal. I did a Google search to try to come up with some ideas for a coffee baked oatmeal and found nothing. What? Coffee baked oatmeal doesn’t seem so strange to me. Two morning foods that go perfectly together- oats with a subtle coffee flavor all mashed up with Cashewmilk and peanut butter. This is not rocket science, folks, but it is an incredibly delicious breakfast.
I personally love my baked oatmeal served in a bowl with additional Cashewmilk, peanut or almond butter, 2 packets Stevia and topped with fresh berries. I really wish I would have taken one photo of my oatmeal served this way, but I didn’t think about it until it was too late. Oh, well, you’ll just have to give it a try yourself.
Have you tried Silk’s new Cashewmilk? It’s so deliciously creamy and has a wonderful flavor. I’ve been enjoying it in all sorts of recipes, my coffee, cereal, smoothies and straight out of the carton. It is the perfect match between tasty and guilt-free.
Not only is Silk Cashewmilk great for using in recipes, in place of other milk products, it’s also a perfect match with my morning or evening coffee. New Silk Cashewmilk has 50% more calcium than dairy milk with only 60 calories per serving (25% less than skim milk). The unsweetened variety only has 25 calories per serving. It’s an excellent source of dairy-free calcium and vitamin D.
- 2 cups rolled oats use gluten-free as needed
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 Stevia packets or other desired sweetener- 1/4 brown or coconut sugar would also work well
- 1 egg or 2 egg whites
- 1 cup strong brewed coffee
- 1 cup Silk Cashewmilk other milks will work
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- optional add-ins; 1/2 cup chopped cashews 1/2 cup craisins or other dried fruit, 1/4 cup chocolate chips, 1/2 cup shredded coconut (I would only pick two of these, not every suggested add-in)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. and prepare an 8x8 baking dish or 9-inch pie plate with cooking spray.
Combine all dry ingredients in a medium to large bowl. Stir in all wet ingredients and any optional add-ins. Transfer to baking dish and bake for about 25 minutes.
Enjoy with any additional toppings you prefer. I love to mash my baked oatmeal in a bowl with additional Cashewmilk and Stevia and add fresh fruit and a drizzle of peanut or almond butter. Yum!
