Red Velvet Baked Oatmeal

Jump to recipe

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.

      How did you guess I made this just for you, Shashi? But unfortunately, I’ve eaten all the oatmeal while waiting for you:)

    Cheesecake for breakfast?? Sign me up for that one! I love red velvet anything (especially at this time of the year), and it’s hard to beat a good baked oatmeal. That cream cheese topping sounds absolutely delicious, Ben! I do trust that you saved me some of this one, right? :-) Happy (early) Valentine’s Day, my friend!

      Absolutely, David. I knew you would like the cheesecake part so I ate only the oatmeal having reserved for you the cream cheese topping:)
