How To Clean Baked Oatmeal

If you don’t use a basting agent, the resulting baste will run.

When you’re baking a cake, it’s important to bake your oatmeal on an oven-safe surface. And it’s important to use a spatula when you’re spreading the oatmeal. Then you just have to bake it, like any other cake, and it will bake through completely with no mess. If you do have a batch that’s a little too runny for your liking, just add a bit more milk or cream to thin it out or stir in a little xanthan gum to thicken the liquid. It’s really easy.

Baking an Instant Oatmeal

(This would also apply to other forms of instant oatmeals. Just don’t go too overboard)

1-5 Ounces of instant oatmeal (the more the better)

4 Eggs

1/2 Cup butter

1/4 Cup coconut flour 

1/4 Cup coconut sugar/brown sugar

1/4 Cup coconut milk

1/2 Tablespoon vanilla extract

1/2 Cup coconut oil 

Directions:

1. Combine oats, eggs, and butter in a high-speed blender until all the ingredients are moistened.

2. Add water and coconut flour and process until smooth and glossy. Taste it and add more milk/cream if necessary.

3. In a mixing bowl , whisk together coconut, sugar, coconut milk, vanilla, and oil. Then slowly add the dry ingredients and process until there are no lumps.

4. Pour the oatmeal in a muffin cup, fill, and bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes until the top is lightly browned.

NOTE: Since coconut oil is a healthy fat, it is very easy to use in your baking. I just sprinkle it on top of the baked oatmeal when preparing a batch for another use, or occasionally I’ll just sprinkle on some coconut oil as an addition to a meal. Or I’ll simply use it as is as a binder for other things like muffins or pancakes or a cookie. It won’t give you the same amount of protein, however, and you can only mix it in so much (in the baking mix in the oatmeal recipes, I usually only use half a Tablespoon) but it doesn’t look all that bad, so it’s worth a try.

Baking a Coconut Oil Oatmeal

(This would also apply to other forms of coconut oil oats, such as Almond Oil.)

1-15 Ounces of coconut oil

4 Eggs

1/2 Cup butter

1/4 Cup brown sugar

1/4 Cup coconut flour

1/4 Cup coconut sugar/brown sugar

2 Tablespoons vanilla extract

Coconut Oil Instructions:

Combine coconut oil, eggs, butter, sugar, vanilla, and flour in a blender and process until smooth, adding in the coconut flour as necessary to form a thick batter.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Mix the binder with the cooked oatmeal until evenly combined. Spread the mixture out in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake for about 20 minutes or until slightly browned. Let cool for a few minutes before cutting into wedges.

To store it, store in a sealed container or seal and place in the freezer. It doesn’t last very long, though. When ready to use, thaw overnight. Or if I store it in the freezer, it’ll last longer before running out of steam.
