Baked Oatmeal with Figs & Hazelnuts

November 17, 2018

The exciting thing about this recipe is that it's easy... which is exactly what I need many of my recipes to be.  I love to cook, but finding the time can be ridiculously insane when my primary job is (kid) taxi driver.  Which is the exact reason I love to  make things in batches, then I'm set with breakfast or whichever meal for a few days.   



Oats are never too flashy, but the addition of dried figs and hazelnuts makes it just a little special.  If  you don't have either of those on hand, you could of course use whatever dried fruit and nuts you have.  I happen to love figs, and hazelnuts pair really well with them!  Plus, it's one final nod to late summer flavors :) 


I like this baked oatmeal because of its chewy texture- no mushy oats out of a vat for me!  And, it has cholesterol lowering potential which is super important to me as I combat my familial high cholesterol genes with diet and exercise. 




You could serve this cake-like on a plate, or do what I do, and scoop it into a bowl, warm it, and spoon a little non-dairy yogurt or milk over it.  Either way, it's comforting, filling, and easy!
