Recipe Review: Baked Oatmeal

I finally found a way to prepare oatmeal that I enjoy! I have never been a fan of hot oatmeal. Oatmeal cookies yes but then again I would choose a chocolate chip cookie over oatmeal every time. But thanks to the Domestic Geek I discovered I love oatmeal in the form of a warm baked muffin (and granola but that is for another post).

I am sure you have heard me mention the Domestic Geek before. She is a very creative YouTuber that has the best mostly healthy, easy recipes and meal prep ideas. This week I decided to try her Baked Oatmeal recipe. I am hooked! This is how oatmeal should be consumed. They are low in fat because she uses apple sauce. They bake up moist and chewy in the center, crisp and crunchy on top. Much better than soggy oatmeal, in my humble opinion. The best part of the recipe is that you can change it up so many ways. She made Blueberry Coconut, Chocolate Almond and Cranberry Pistachio. I made Mixed Berry, Chocolate Hazelnut and Toffee Pecan. That is six ideas to top your oatmeal! Variety is the spice of life right?

For the original recipe check out the Domestic Geek's video [Here].

This is how I topped mine.

Mixed Berry
Top with a mixed berry dried fruit blend with blueberries, cranberries and raisins. Next time I will stir the dried berries in a bit. I found that 
because of the sugar content some got a little dark for my taste.

Chocolate Hazelnut
Top with chopped Hazelnuts and semi-sweet chocolate chips.
Tastes like Nutella on top of your oatmeal. Yum!

Toffee Pecan
Topped with Heath toffee baking bits and chopped pecans. 
This was my favorite! It was so so good! Tastes like 
pecan praline topping. You have to make this one!

*Note: Spray the muffin tins or cupcake liners. 
The oatmeal will stick if you don't.
