Baked oats is a viral TikTok breakfast trend we can always get behind.
Food Network baking pro Dan Langan is sharing his recipe for a tropical baked oatmeal with Greek yogurt to mix up your morning breakfast routine.
"I crave this baked oatmeal for its tropical feel and texture. Citrus zest and honey add a pop of flavor to this baked oatmeal topped with sweet strawberries, pineapple and toasty coconut," he told "Good Morning America." "Baking half of the fruit into the oatmeal and then topping each serving with fresh fruit gives a contrast of textures and flavor. I also sneak in some extra protein by adding greek yogurt to the mix."
Tropical Baked Oatmeal with Greek Yogurt Recipe
2 cups rolled oats
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon baking powder
Heaping 1/4 teaspoon fine salt
1 ½ cups fruit juice or milk of your choice
1 cup Greek yogurt (any fat percentage will work)
2-3 tablespoons honey or agave, optional
Splash of vanilla extract, optional
Zest of one orange or lemon
1 ½ cups sliced strawberries
1 ½ cups sliced pineapple
½ cup shredded coconut or coconut chips
Preheat your oven to 350F with a rack in the center.
Grease a 9" or similar sized baking dish with non-stick spray.
Add the oats, cinnamon, baking powder, salt, juice or milk, yogurt, honey, vanilla and citrus zest to the baking dish and mix with a fork until well combined. Top with half of the strawberries and sliced pineapple and partially mix them into the oat mixture. Sprinkle the coconut over the top.
Bake for 30-40 minutes or until the oatmeal is bubbling and the coconut is a tasty color. Cool slightly before serving. Juice the zested lemon or orange and toss the remaining strawberries and pineapple in the juice. Garnish the baked oatmeal with the dressed fruit.
Store any leftovers covered and in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
