I love oats and porridge (which you may have already noticed if you follow me on Instagram)! Especially in the cooler months. It’s a warm, cosy, comforting meal with so many options for toppings and flavours. My go-to porridge topping is usually fresh berries and pure maple, but as we are in autumn (fall) here in Australia, I’m using some sweet, earthy, autumnal flavours for this week’s super delicious new recipe; Spiced Carrot Baked Oatmeal with Maple Roasted Pecans.
Much of the sweetness in this recipe comes from the grated carrots, so there’s only a small amount of extra sweetener needed by adding the pure maple. I like to serve this dish with with a dollop of natural yoghurt or coconut yogurt and then a sprinkling of maple roasted pecans. This is also a great recipe to make a batch of and keep in the fridge for easy midweek breakfasts, as it’s also delicious when cold.
For another of my favourite baked oatmeal recipes, check out my Baked Berry Oatmeal. It’s one of the first recipes I posted on the site (I think my ingredient flatlays have come a long way since then)! ☺
Enjoy the recipe!
- 3 cups rolled oats
- 2 tbs ground linseed
- ¼ cup whole linseed
- 4 tbs chia seeds
- 1 cup pecans, roughly chopped
- 1 tbs cinnamon powder
- 1 tsp vanilla powder
- ¼ tsp mixed spice
- Pinch of sea salt
- 2½ cups grated carrot (about 4 medium carrots)
- 2 tbs coconut oil
- ⅓ cup maple syrup
- 4 cups almond milk
- Maple roasted pecans
- ½ cup pecans, roughly chopped
- 3 tbs pure maple
- Pinch sea salt
- Pre-heat your oven to 190 degrees celsius.
- Place all of the ingredients into a mixing bowl and mix until combined.
- Pour the oatmeal batter into a medium sized oven dish or into 8 medium sized ramekins, and place into the oven.
- Bake for 30 minutes.
- Spread the extra pecans onto a paper lined baking tray and coat with the pure maple and a sprinkling of sea salt.
- Bake the pecans for about 15-20 minutes (I like to cook them at the same time as the oatmeal by placing them into the oven about halfway into the oatmeal cooking time).
- Once cooked, take the oatmeal and pecans out of the oven and let cool for 5-10 minutes.
- Serve with extra almond milk or natural yoghurt and a sprinkling of the maple roasted pecans. Delicious!
