Cherry Almond Baked Oatmeal


A sweet Cherry Almond Oatmeal Bake casserole that serves plenty, and gives you the same comfort of a warm fuzzy blanket on a cold morning.

Start by pre-heating your oven to 350 degrees and then wash and grate your apple. You could also substitute the apple with 1 cup of cinnamon apple sauce. However, the grated apple adds a little more texture.

Then stir the almond extract into the milk. This adds a great almond flavor to the baked oatmeal. Plus, stirring it in with the milk makes sure the flavor is evenly mixed within the casserole.

Next, pour the milk over the oatmeal. You could also use a plant based milk instead of regular milk. I prefer to use almond milk with this recipe. (Keeps a whole almond theme going.)

Next, add the grated apple. This adds some texture to the oatmeal bake as well as a bit of sweetness.

Spoon in the brown sugar, distributing it evenly throughout the casserole dish. But don’t worry about mixing it in. The brown sugar will melt down and add some color and sweetness to the oatmeal.

Lastly, add the sliced almonds on top. This gives the breakfast a little bit of protein and a nice crunch to the texture too.

Carefully add the casserole dish to the oven so the milk doesn’t spill. Bake the oatmeal at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.

When the oatmeal is done baking, let cool for about 10 minutes. Serve with a side of maple syrup or honey.
