She {hearts} Oatmeal Bake

Have you read about soaking grains? There is a lot out there, so I will break down what I’ve learned to the basics (ie. what I actually understand) soaking aids in digestion of your food.

My conclusion, soaking = better digestion. (But you don’t have to take my word for it, read up on it yourself!)

This recipe, passed onto me by a friend, turns oatmeal into a delicious treat.

Oatmeal Bake

Served warm the combined flavors from the coconut oil and molasses makes for a happy mouth and comforted belly, or you can eat {the leftovers} straight from the fridge cold making for an almost cake-like consistency. Also, this bake is easily halved, which is how I usually make it (in a large pie dish).

    To Soak:
  • 6C dry oats
  • 2C water
  • 1/3C yogurt/whey/kefir
  • 1C soft/melted coconut oil
  • Next Morning:
  • 1T cinnamon
  • 2tsp baking soda
  • 1tsp salt
  • 2tsp vanilla
  • 8 eggs
  • 1/2C molasses (1/3 C if using black strap, as it is so strong)
  • 1/2C raisins (optional)
  • Additional Toppings:
  • shredded coconut (optional)
  • brown sugar (optional)
  • additional yogurt or milk (optional)
  • honey (optional)
  1. Combine all "to soak" ingredients in glass bowl and leave on counter, covered, overnight or for 24 hours
  2. The next morning, pre-heat oven to 350
  3. Grease 9x13 pan
  4. Add all "next morning" ingredients to the soaked oats and scoop into prepared pan (optional: sprinkle top with shredded coconut and/or brown sugar)
  5. Bake for 30-35 min
  6. Serve warm or cold (optional: top with additional yogurt or milk and/or drizzle honey on top)
