Ooooh, a little taste of the tropics as we slowly emerge out of winter!
This baked oatmeal is fantastic. It’s not quite as sweet and dessert like as the Cinnamon Roll Baked Oatmeal we shared last week. The crushed pineapple has just the right amount of natural sweetness to make the oatmeal sweet, but not dessert-sweet.
Couple notes on this recipe…
- Use 1/2 tsp vanilla extract & 1/2 tsp rum extract – for the full effect
- Serve with coconut milk for some extra nutty flavor (I just noticed that my Costco is carrying shelf stable boxes of coconut milk at a reasonable price!)
- Easily make this recipe GF by using GF flour blend in place of the flour and GF certified quick cooking oats for the quick cooking oats.
Everyone from the 2 year old to my husband enjoyed this pina colada version of baked oatmeal! That’s it…hope you love this as much as we do!
