This is a very naughty dessert or breakfast/brunch dish - but it is nice to have a treat now and then, so why not! Glossy caramelised toffee bananas served sandwiched between light, fluffy pancakes and then topped with more bananas and ginger syrup with whipped cream............how decadent is that! I used this ginger syrup last time I made these, Recipe #271638 by Sharon 123, it was excellent!
Not only do the strawberry and orange pieces make this baked oatmeal taste wonderful, but they also stud the pale oatmeal with a wonderful deep red. My main complaint with baked oatmeal is the excess amount of sugar added, making it taste more like dessert. This oatmeal is only slightly sweet, with the option of adding additional honey to drizzle on top. The individual serving size is quite small (which allows one to enjoy the oatmeal with toast, fruit and milk for a complete, healthy breakfast) but the individual aspect also makes it quite pretty. Created for RSC #11.
I came up with this when I was among the many doing the Atkin's Low Carb dieting... This was something tasty without all the carbs. You may have to play with the measurements a bit as I never measured it, I just dumped it in a bowl all together and mixed it adding as I saw fit.
I love the texture of steel cut oats. You can make this the night before and breakfast is ready in the morning. I like fruit additions, but my kids do not, so I've listed them as optional. Also, it may sound like a lot of water, but trust me, I've experimented..
I made this when I was trying to use up stuff in the refrigerator and it came out pretty good. I used frozen cherries but I think it would be a lot more nutritious using frozen strawberries or other berries.
I adapted this from an Amish recipe. I love them sprinkled with a little confectioner's sugar and served with maple syrup for breakfast. You can also serve them as a side dish. The yield is approximate. Depends on how large or small you make them, and how much corn you put into it.
The chore of making French toast on a weekday morning is standing over the stove when you're short on time. By assembling breakfast the night before, then letting the French toast bake instead of fry, you've got more time to get organized for the new day.
These are wonderful and are almost too healthy to be true. Lots of calcium, protein, fiber, etc. I usually eat them without any topping and just keep popping them in my mouth! Yum. But a good jam will do them nicely as well.
