My mom was an expert at waking us with the alluring smell of sweet spices coming from the kitchen. She used to make warm, baked oatmeal that we would devour on those “cold,” by Puerto Rican standards, mornings, when there was a chill in the air. The island’s coolest days don’t compare to the months of more extreme cold in other states, but there are nights crisp enough to sleep with a blanket. Thinking about my mom’s winter breakfasts, I have prepared this baked oatmeal, perfect before school or even as a snack. For more variety, I chose to use seasonal fresh fruits, such as pears, cranberries or apples. MORE + LESS -

  • 1
    Preheat the oven to 375 °F. Grease a square cake pan with the coconut oil, being sure to coat the bottom and all sides of the pan. Set aside.
  • 2
    In a large bowl, add the oatmeal, almonds and baking powder.
  • 3
    Sprinkle cinnamon, ground ginger, ground cloves and nutmeg over the pairs, raisins and cranberries and mix with the oatmeal. Pour the mix into the already greased baking pan and spread out.
  • 4
    In another bowl, beat the egg and add the milk, agave nectar and vanilla. Slowly pour over the oatmeal.
  • 5
    Sprinkle brown sugar over the surface and bake for 35 minutes or until the top of the oatmeal bake is golden brown (you’ll know it’s ready by the smell of spices coming from the kitchen).

    Let cool before serving.

Expert Tips

  • To grease the pan, you may use coconut oil spray in place of the coconut oil.
