A delicious baked oatmeal that will have your kids begging for breakfast! A sweet pineapple topping graces a sweet and chewy oatmeal bake. This recipe is sugar free and a Trim Healthy Mama E Fuel.
A few weeks ago I posted an Upside Down Peach Oatmeal Bake. It has had a lot of views, and to be honest, I was a little surprised. I mean, its OATMEAL! But, as it turns out, people like oatmeal (and oatmeal variations)!
That day I had made peach because I did not have pineapple, and I explained how my sister-in-law had made pineapple oatmeal when I was visiting her this summer. I have not forgotten how delicious it was! After I made this recipe today, I left it sitting on the counter to cool, and one of my dorm boys asked if he could have a piece of the “fruit cake.” I obliged, and he had a healthy snack!
Now, I suppose you could say that I cheated because I used canned pineapple tidbits. Yes, maybe I did, but it was much faster! And I can be a Drive-Thru Sue at times! (Can I get an Amen from my fellow Trim Healthy Mamas?) If you want to use fresh pineapple, (my sister-in-law did), feel free to lay the fresh pineapple slices in the bottom of the pan, instead of the canned tidbits. It will be just as delicious! And one more thing, make sure you get the pineapple that is in its own juice. You do not want the pineapple with sugar added.
This baked oatmeal can be thrown together in a snap, and it only takes about half an hour to bake. I did add Pristine Whey Protein Powder to bump up the protein count, but that is not absolutely necessary. If you do not have protein powder, just omit it.
So, what do you need for this recipe?
1 8 Ounce Can Pineapple Tidbits in 100% Juice
1 Cup + 1 Tablespoon Xylitol, Divided
1/4 Teaspoon Cinnamon
2 Cups Old Fashioned Oatmeal (Uncooked)
1/3 Cup Whey Protein
2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
1/2 Cup Plain Greek Yogurt
1 Cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
