Almond Joy Baked Oatmeal

So Ive got some serious addiction to The Oatmeal Artist recipes!

Seriously people, if you eat oatmeal (and you better be!) you need to go to this website and try out some of these recipes. I am most addicted to the Baked Oatmeal ones. So far I’ve tried 3 different ones and they were all good. I’ve had: Peanut Butter Cookie Baked Oatmeal, Pear & Almond Baked Oatmeal, and Salted Brownie Baked Oatmeal (original).

I liked these so much today I decided to morph two of her different ones together to try something new. I wanted to have the Almond Joy oatmeal, but I wanted it Baked and The Oatmeal Artist’s was a stovetop version. So, I took the Chocolate Chip Cookie Baked Oatmeal and mixed it with the Almond Joy Oatmeal Stovetop recipes and got a Almond Joy Baked Oatmeal. 🙂

And holy cow, was it good! It was like eating an Almond Joy candy bar in muffin form. The best part – It’s good for you!

 

Here is the recipe I concocted from the The Oatmeal Artists recipes:

Almond Joy Baked Oatmeal

Ingredients (serves 1)
• 1/2 cup rolled oats (I use Country Choice Organic)
• 1/4 tsp baking powder
• 1/4 tsp baking soda
• 1 heaping tablespoon unsweetened cocoa
• pinch of salt
• 1/3 cup milk of choice
• 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
• 1/2 tsp almond extract (can add a touch more or less to taste)
• 3 tablespoons coconut (divided)
• 1 teaspoon honey
• 1 tablespoon sliced almonds

 
Instructions
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a single-serving ramekin with nonstick cooking spray.
2. In a small bowl, mix oats, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt until combined.
3. In a medium-sized bowl, mix together milk, vanilla extract, almond extract, 2 tablespoons coconut, honey, sliced almonds.
4. Add dry ingredients to mix ingredients and stir until combined.
5. Pour into the prepared ramekin. Bake for 14 minutes.
6. After 14 minutes, sprinkle reaming 1 tablespoon coconut on top. Bake for 6-7 more minutes.
7. NOTE – after I had a couple of bites, I added a splash of milk to the bowl to give it a bit of a more oatmeal-like consistency. This is optional as it is good with or without the extra milk. 🙂
