This recipe is from Chocolate Covered Katie‘s blog. I have tried a lot of her things from cookie balls to bulgur pilaf, and I must say I’ve absolutely loved every single recipe! I am proud to admit that I was not disappointed in the least with this recipe. I tried her basic boatmeal recipe, and added a few of my own things to it. First I tried chai concentrate and pumpkin puree, then I did bananas and banana yogurt, then I tried coconut milk and vanilla with an apple pie-type crust. Everything was delicious!
I would highly recommend trying out any of her stuff. The boatmeal is delicious as a meal, a snack, and a dessert! I’m sure savory boatmeal wouldn’t be too bad either. I will definitely use this recipe again!
- 1/2 cup oats (50g)
- 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon (and 1/8 tsp nutmeg, if making pumpkin version)
- sweetener, such as 1 1/2 to 2T maple syrup or 1 to 1 1/2 packs stevia
- 1/4 cup canned pumpkin or applesauce (50-60g)
- 1/4 cup milk or creamer or water (60g)
- heaping 1/16th tsp salt
- Optional: 1 to 2T oil or favorite nut butter (if oil, scale the milk back a tiny bit)
- Optional: raisins, walnuts, brown sugar for the top
Preheat oven to 380 degrees. Combine raw oats, spices, pumpkin, and milk. Pour into a small baking pan, 1-cup ramekin, or mini-loaf pan. Cook for 20 minutes, or more until it gets firm. Finally, set your oven to “high broil” for 3 more minutes, or until it reaches desired crispy-ness (or simply just bake longer, but broiling gives it a nice crust).
