A few weeks ago, we started a new Saturday routine on our social networks called the “Saturday Breakfast Special.” Each week, we share a photo of someone with their healthy (mostly) breakfast, while wearing their STAY VOCAL Cereal Spill T-Shirt. It’s a fun way for us to share healthy eating ideas and talk about the meal that so many of us have as a favorite: BREAKFAST! Well, this week, one of our customers, Dana Portnoy, not only shared a photo, but the recipe for her breakfast too. So, we just had to share it with everybody. Scroll down to check it out.
If you’d like to see more of Dana’s amazing meal creations, check her out on Instagram.
If you’d like to share a photo of you with your breakfast, please email it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or tag us in a photo that you share on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. We just might use it for our next Saturday Breakfast Special.
Dana’s Vegan Baked Oatmeal
- 2 medium ripe bananas, sliced in ½” pieces
- 1 ½ cups fruit (raspberries, cranberries, blackberries, apple, pear, blueberries, etc.)
- 1 cup rolled oats
- ¼ cup chopped nuts (pecans/walnuts/almonds)
- ½ tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp cinnamon (or to taste)
- ½ tsp ginger (or to taste)
- Pinch of salt
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1 tbsp ground flax seeds + 3 tbsp warm water, mixed
- 1 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 375. Spray an 8×8 baking pan. Arrange sliced bananas in a single layer at the bottom of the baking dish. Sprinkle the fruit on top (saving a little to put on top later). Sprinkle with cinnamon and ginger. Cover with foil and bake for 15 minutes.
In a medium bowl, combine oats, nuts, baking powder, 1 tsp cinnamon, ½ tsp ginger and salt. Mix well. In a separate bowl, combine the almond milk, flax mixture and vanilla.
Remove bananas from the oven and sprinkle oat mixture evenly on top. Pour the almond milk mixture evenly over the oat mixture. Sprinkle remaining fruit on top. Add an extra shake of cinnamon/ginger.
Bake for about 30 minutes until the top is golden brown and the oats have set.
Makes 6 servings.
