I love oatmeal, especially in the winter, and especially if it’s the baked variety.
I make it often, but like to change it up a bit. Fruit is a fave, but this time, I thought I’d try something different for a treat — peanut butter and crunchy sea salt, with a bit of chocolate. The chocolate is added at the end — not too much, but enough to make oatmeal feel decadent. A bit more peanut butter drizzled on top helps, as does a sprinkling of coarse sea salt
Flax and banana add nutrients and moisture — this is a drier version of most of the baked oatmeal I’ve made, so a little milk before serving helps.
All in all, this is an easy, filling breakfast for those frigid winter days when you can’t stomach the thought of a smoothie or cold cereal.
