Ingredients

Baked Oatmeal

  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp salt

Pecan Pie Topping

  • 2 tbsp butter
  • ¼ cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 cup pecan halves, roughly chopped

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350° F. Spray the bottom and sides of an 8- or 9-inch square baking dish with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, and vanilla. Add the oats, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt and mix well.
  • Pour mixture into prepared baking dish. Bake for 15 minutes. (It will go back in the oven with the topping).
  • While the oatmeal is baking during that first 15 minutes, prepare the pecan pie topping. In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, bring the butter, brown sugar, and maple syrup to a boil, whisking constantly to prevent the mixture from burning. Once it has thickened (after about 1 minute), stir in the pecans. Remove the pan from heat.
  • Remove the oatmeal from the oven (after the 10 minutes), spread the pecan mixture over the top, and return to the oven to bake for another 10-15 minutes, until the liquid has been absorbed, and the center is set.
  • Let cool for 10 to 15 minutes before serving alongside milk or yogurt. You can serve it warm or at room temperature. Cover and refrigerate leftovers for up to 4 days.
