Golden Baked Oats

Why do golden lattes get to have all the glory?

The magic ingredient in both is the turmeric, so I suppose that means that the turmeric gets the glory. And I’m ok with that because turmeric is pretty magical and transformative…

So many anti-inflammatory, color changing, good for you benefits.

If turmeric doesn’t quite do it for ya, you could swap it for cocoa powder. You can’t really go wrong with chocolate cake for breakfast either.

When in doubt, make it chocolate. That could be a new life motto for me… if you try it chocolate, top it with some of my 2-ingredient frosting! You will not be disappointed.

Also, if you blend your dry ingredients together then gently stir in your baking soda, then mix your wet into dry, the result will be much less dense and more cake like.

If you don’t have a very sensitive palate and don’t care about the density, chuck the ingredients right into the blender and pour it up and bake it. It’s all going the same place- right?! That’s how I did it in the following video and it came out just fine. Wanted to throw out that other option for my texture people!

Ok ok. Don’t want to give you my life story again, but wanted to give you some pointers! Here’s the recipe already… right after this video link 🤣

Ingredients:

  • 1/2C old fashioned oats
  • 1/4tsp turmeric
  • 1/4tsp cinnamon
  • Dash pepper+ginger
  • Scoop collagen (optional)
  • 1tsp baking powder
  • 1/2tsp baking soda
  • 1/2banana
  • 1/2C milk of choice
  • 1tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 egg

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 and grease 2 small ramekins or an oven safe dish.
  2. Add your ingredients to a blender, starting with the wet ingredients and blend until all ingredients are well incorporated.
  3. Pour into ramekins and bake for 30-35 minutes.
  4. Top with desired toppings-very important IMO! I used plain Greek yogurt, honey and walnuts and it was delish.

Less Dense Cake Like Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 and grease 2 ramekins or oven safe dish of choice.
  2. Add first 5 ingredients to your blender and blend until mixture resembles a flour like texture.
  3. Pour into a bowl and stir in your baking soda and baking powder.
  4. Add your wet ingredients to the blender and blend until mixture is homogenous.
  5. Pour your wet into dry and mix well. Alternatively you could add your dry to the wet and blend on low until well incorporated. I prefer the first method, but that’s me. It’s more traditional and the result is pretty much guaranteed.
  6. Pour mixture into ramekins and bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes.
  7. Top and enjoy!
