By just modifying the process of making traditional porridge a tiny-tiny bit, the for some otherwise boring, sloppy substance can be turned into a spungy and filling breakfast-cake. Baked coconut oats are one of those small everyday life initiatives that seriously can pimp up a boring mainstream morning. Without compromising either your health or your time.

Fancy breakfast

For me breakfast should be easy and simple, but it should also be interesting and delicious. I am not saying that I think everyday busy mornings are the time to dish up with fancy omelets and mini-muffins. But I also don’t see any reason for downgrading the most important meal of the day. 


Baked coconut oats

Baked coconut oats has a few ingredients that make all of the difference! It is the combination of rich coconut milk, sweet coconut flour and sour lemon that plays geniously together and make the whole experience very cake-like. Otherwise it is just a very traditional porridge recipe that gets thrown in the oven instead of a in pot. By adding a bit of baking powder in there, the mix becomes fluffy and crumbly – and oh so delicious!

I don’t wanna cook in morning

I totally get if some of you still think that this sounds like to much of a time-bomb, when you’ve just woken up, and want your morning coffee and a piece of bread – nice and easy. But these baked coconut oats really are super simple and if you just time your mornings a little bit, they don’t have to take longer than 5 minutes of your time! 
I usually mix the ingredients together in a ovenproof dish, put them in the oven and then I head to the shower. When I am out, dressed and ready, approximately 30 minutes later, a portion of hot, fluffy, cake-y oats is waiting for me.

This baked coconut oats recipe provides three days of breakfast. So if you still aren’t convinced regarding the time-issue, then just think about the following days where you don’t have to do anything!
You can also freeze them, if you don’t wanna have the same for breakfast three days in a row. Or make a smaller portion of course, but how nice isn’t to always have back up of breakfast-cake in the freezer ?!
