Red Velvet Baked Oatmeal is a creamy, delicious, and festive twist on the famous classic.
Stop Me, Good People!
But I’ve got a favor to ask, guys. Please, stop me. Stop all this Valentine’s craziness. And especially stop this Red Velvet nonsense. How many red velvet recipes are appropriate to make within 3 weeks for an average person?
When I made this Roasted Beetroot Goat Cheese Risotto (And I changed the order of publishing Valentine’s recipes), I was pretty much sure that would be the last one.
As you see, I was so wrong.
But I’m not complaining too much because as the result, I’ve got this pretty good Red Velvet Baked Oatmeal. One day I realized I hadn’t eaten oatmeal for ages. A couple of hours later I thought why wouldn’t make some festive Red Velvet
Cake Baked Oatmeal.
Red Velvet Baked Oatmeal
Because it’s Valentine’s and other stuff. You know. Besides, although I have already shared with a breakfast idea – these Red Velvet Cake Donuts – I wanted something healthier.
It might be hard to define this dish as 100% healthy recipe thanks to using the food coloring and sugar, but the oats are on the good side here.
Talking about sugar, I normally don’t add much/at all granulated sugar in baked oatmeal using maple syrup or bananas instead. However, I think this Red Velvet Baked Oatmeal needs some sugar – it would be rather bland if not sweetened.
Dessert For Your Breakfast!
And don’t forget that delicious cream cheese filling. Indeed, once baked, the cream cheese basically turns into a cheesecake. Cheesecake for breakfast? Awesome, isn’t it?
In fact, the texture of this baked oatmeal is just luscious, so moist, airy, fluffy…like a good pudding!
So if you that person who craves for a dessert for breakfast, your destiny is to make this Red Velvet Baked Oatmeal.
Because this would be 100% legitimate.
