Sweetened with maple syrup, this vegan baked steel-cut oatmeal is a mix of berries, cinnamon, chopped almonds, nut butter (peanut or almond) and oat milk.
- 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
- 3 tablespoons water
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- 2 tablespoons peanut butter or almond butter
- 2 cups oat milk plus more for serving
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup steel-cut oats
- 1/3 cup chopped roasted unsalted almonds plus more for serving
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon plus more for serving
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- Pinch of salt
- 10 ounces frozen mixed berries
- Additional fruit for serving including fresh berries and sliced bananas or apples
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
- In a small bowl, whisk together the ground flaxseed and water.
- Combine the coconut oil and peanut butter in a large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for 30 seconds. Then stir the melted oil and peanut butter with the oat milk, maple syrup and vanilla extract. Whisk in the flaxseed-water mixture.
- In a large bowl, combine the steel-cut oats, almonds, cinnamon, baking powder and salt. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Stir everything together until fully combined.
- Pour the mixture into an 8-inch baking dish. Scatter the berries on top.
- Bake for 40-50 minutes until the oatmeal turns deep brown and puffs up. It should still be a spoon-able consistency.
- Divide the oatmeal into bowls. Add a splash of oat milk and top with additional fruit, nuts and cinnamon.
- Instead of whisking together the ground flaxseed and water, you can use an actual egg, Just whisk it in once you have the other wet ingredients combined.
- If you have fresh berries, you can use them instead of frozen. Fresh berries will not spread as much throughout the oatmeal like frozen.
- Also, you can use any plant-based milk or cow’s milk instead of oat milk.
