Baked oats with strawberries and coconut milk

I haven’t eaten oats in like ten years. Breakfast usually consists of a cup of coffee with a cookie while doing my make-up, and on weekends something with eggs. We love eggs! But since I don’t sit in traffic for hours anymore, I have a bit more time when it comes to breakfast.

If you have a sweet tooth this baked oats with strawberries and coconut milk is just the thing for you. It kind of reminds me of a healthy strawberry cake of sorts. It’s packed with goodness and I was super surprised at how filling it is. You can easily refrigerate half of it and warm it up again the next day. Breakfast treat, anyone?

  1. I’ve been really into baked oatmeal these days- I tried making an overnight apple with oaty streusel one a couple months ago, and then I had some with honeyed milk at my dining hall this past weekend- so I can’t wait to try this when I get back into the kitchen!

    1. Me too, I’ve been baking bread with oats and making granola and adding it to just about anything. I have been eying the overnight oats recipes, but I’m a bit skeptical. The apple and streusel one sounds fantastic though.
