Plum Baked Oatmeal


My Polish mother used to make a delicious plum cake and that was my inspiration in creating this juicy plum baked oatmeal. I used coconut oil to make it more moist and lucuma powder as my sweetener. The powder 100% natural fruit, nothing added. Lucuma is a fruit from Peru that looks like an orange avocado and tastes a little bit like maple syrup. One tablespoon of lucuma powder only has 2g of sugar! This recipe gets 7g of sugar from the plum.









Ingredients:


  • ½ cup rolled oats 
  • 1/3 cup almond milk
  • 1 plum
  • ¼ tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp lucuma powder
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • pinch of salt


  • Directions:
    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and spray a single-serve ramekin with nonstick spray.
    2. Cut your pear in half and peel one side. Set one half aside. With the other half, mash it up inside the bowl. This is what provides the sugar to your oatmeal.
    3. Add milk, vanilla extract, and almond extract. Stir until mixed with the mashed pear.
    4. Add oats, ginger, baking powder, and salt. Stir.
    5. With the remaining pear half, dice it into cubes, chunks, or slices and add to the batter. Stir gently.
    6. Pour into the prepared ramekin and bake for 20 minutes.
