Recipe: Morning Glory Baked Oatmeal

Morning Glory Baked Oatmeal Recipe - Zucchini, Apple, Carrot, Oats

Note: Thank you all so much for your birthday wishes yesterday! You know how to make a girl feel special! <3 

I'm not a savoury breakfast eater - the idea of eating vegetables for breakfast totally turns my stomach.... unless we're talking about zucchini bread or carrot cake. 

This recipe was one of my random thrown together combinations. I remember a cake I had once at a cafe that I'd absolutely fallen in love with - but never had the chance to eat again as it was taken off the menu. It was an oat filled, moist cake with carrot, apple and zucchini. My Dad grimaced at my selection but as I put the first forkful into my mouth, I was in heaven. 

The apple and carrot cake the cake a lovely sweetness and the zucchini made it moist and delicious. I knew I wanted to recreate it - but I also needed to whip up a quick recipe for breakfast as I'd run out of breakfast bakes. I thought it could work as baked oatmeal seeing as the cake used oats too - so I threw everything together and crossed my fingers. 

What came out of the oven was a DEEEELICIOUS baked oatmeal dish that tasted even better than that cake. I like it best cold (as I do with the breakfast bakes), however, you can eat it however you like it!

  1. If I could still eat oats I would definitely be trying this. Looks awesome! And I am with you, sweet breakfast all the way!

    1. Hmm, can you eat quinoa flakes? Because it could possibly work with them!

    2. Yes! But I have never tried baking them. They seem so delicate. But I will have to give it a try!

    3. Definitely - we use them in a couple of different baked goods and cookies and they're delish! xx
