Variations on a Breakfast Cobbler

I found a recipe for baked oatmeal in a pile of pages ripped out of magazines.  Yup people, if you’re ever in a gym and find multiple pages ripped out of magazines … usually pertaining to recipes or at home workouts … you’ve been victim to my thieving ways.

I’ve been making J versions of the same recipe for the last few weeks.  One of the first things I loved about J was that he ate oatmeal with pb and fruit before he met me (apparently people outside the blog world love this combo, too!)

J's Oats, PB & banana

These baked oatmeal breakfasts have the same components as J’s oatmeal bowls except with the added baked good-y goodness.  J calls them breakfast cobblers, I call them more fun ways for me to get creative in the kitchen!

They all have similar steps and ingredients:

Layer fruit on the bottom of a baking dish

I’ve been known to add a layer of pudding in between the fruit and oats (J’s favorite desert is banana cream pie)

Then you mix up dry ingredients (2 cups of oats, 1 tsp of baking powder, 1.5 tsp cinnamon, and .5 tsp salt)

And pour over the fruit and/or pudding

Mix wet ingredients (1/3 cup fruit preserves/honey/maple syrup, 2 tsp vanilla, and 3 Tbsp Peanut Butter/Coconut Oil/Melted Butter) and pour on top of cobbler

Then bake at 375 for about 30 minutes (or until oatmeal crust is crispy and delicious looking)

And let bf eat a serving in the morning …

While you eat the fruit filled bottom layer that afternoon while he’s at work.

  1. This looks awesome, T…. LOVE the sneaky pudding layer – great idea! Cobbler is a funny word, I thought a cobbler was someone who fixes shoes? Down Under we would call this a “Fruit Crunble” – either way sounds YUMMO 🙂

    • i was actually thinking of you when i made the pudding layer … “hmm, would lou mix up some soaked cashews with coconut flour and dates to make a pudding layer?” … but then i got lazy and just made the “regular” pudding. 🙂

      • yup. j came home that night and i had to fess up that all that was left was the oatmeal topping. 🙂 … he didn’t seem to mind b/c it ends up being very similar to an oatmeal cookie!
