Baked Cherry Pie Breakfast Pudding

74 comments

I somehow managed to fit everything in yesterday!

It was truly a proud moment. I managed to squeeze in a great heart-pumping workout + Whittle My Middle 2 with Eric.

However, my WMM2 victim willing participant is getting a bit unruly!

Last night Eric decides that it would be fun to POKE me as I am doing my side planks! I was laughing (I’m ticklish in a major way) and I kept falling over!!! I will get him back, don’t you worry. I have a few produce stickers already planted (one is on his side mirror on his car). *evil cackle* You know what they say, she who laughs last

[For the record, every time I do a plank up a little piece of me dies inside.] Can I get a hell yea?

Because I was feeling pretty darn good about my efforts, I decided to celebrate with a new recipe. I think I must be the only person who bakes for 11 hours and then decides to bake ‘for fun’…

Baked Cherry Pie Breakfast Pudding

IMG_9015

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup lightly toasted hazelnuts (filberts)
  • 1/2 cup ground almonds
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats (not instant)
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 t pure vanilla extract
  • 1 Tbsp agave nectar or maple syrup
  • 2 t cinnamon
  • Pinch fine sea salt
  • 1 T chia seeds (optional)
  • 1/2 scoop Manitoba harvest Hemp Pro 70% powder (optional)
  • 1 and 1/4 cups unsweetened almond, soy, rice, hemp milk
  • 1/2 large banana, sliced into chunks
  • Dried cherries, apricots, goji berries, cacao nibs, to garnish (optional)
  • Or you can use fresh fruit, which might taste a bit better (optional)

Directions: Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a 4-6 cup (1-1.5 L) casserole dish or three small oven safe dishes. Throw all ingredients except the banana and dried fruit into the blender and blend until smooth, stopping to scrape sides if necessary. Evenly distribute the batter into the dishes and then garnish with banana and dried fruit. Pop in the oven for about 35-40 minutes at 350F or until golden brown. My dried fruit burned a bit, so watch it carefully after 30 minutes. You can refrigerate for 4 days and they apparently freeze well too!

[Recipe adapted from the fabulous Ricki over at Diet, Dessert, n Dogs]

The Night Before Prep = huge morning time saver:

I prepared this last night before bed and it took me about 15 minutes or so. Then I popped the Pyrex dishes into the fridge overnight. This morning threw them into the oven and baked them as I worked out. Super easy!! Make sure you let the dish come to room temperature before putting into the oven, so it doesn’t crack.

Blending produces the coolest breakfast ‘batter’ you will ever witness. I felt like I was whipping up a healthy cake!

Instead of making it into one casserole dish, I decided that three separate servings would work well for me.

Now I have breakfast for 3 days!

I made three flavours:

Banana split                             Tropical Bliss                          Cherry Pie

(Banana Cacao Nib)                     (Banana-Apricot-Goji)                (Banana Cherry)

Untitled The following nutrition label is for the basic baked pudding without chia seeds, protein powder, or toppings.

You can adapt it to how you like and make it as filling as needed.

Oh dear me. This was like eating a healthy cake batter!! You can drizzle it with coconut oil, maple syrup, or agave if you’d like. It would also be great with yogurt.

I think next time I will use less dried fruit and more fresh fruit. The bananas were awesome in this!

Updates:

Today is another long day of baking, packing, and shipping!

The IIHF Canada vs. USA Hockey GOLD MEDAL game is on tonight! Nothing short of a natural disaster or an 80% off sale at BCBG could peel me away from the screen tonight. Anyone else watching?

I hope you have a glowing Tuesday filled with lots of laughter and smiles.

Stay tuned for an exciting announcement!

Angela,
I am digging on your website – :) Actually yours is the only blog I follow. I have done the gm’s for over 3 years now (everyday). I just made your breakfast cake and with my first bite I am compelled to write… (oh my gosh) can you say “YUMMY”, creamy and incredibly delicious!!! I used fresh cashew milk for the liquid part and topped with bananas and dried coconut then drizzled the top with the coconut oil and agave nectar. Absolutely delectable. Thank you – we are actually having this as our dinner tonight.

You are INSANE Ang! How do you bake for hours and hours! I tried to get a victim for WMM but he was less than willing. My dog is always pretty curious though so I guess that’s something?! P.S. I bought soya flour but have no clue what to do with it????

Hey Angela,

I am so grateful that you devote so much time to educating people about healthy eating. I’ve been a vegetarian since I was a young child but have never ate well, mostly carbs and sugar, because I never knew how. You have helped me so much.
Do you get concerned with how much fat you eat? Nuts and seeds are healthy but loaded with fat. I’m trying to lose weight, should I be concerned about this.

Reply

39 Angela (Oh She Glows) January 5, 2010

Healthy fats are essential- especially now that I don’t get them from things like salmon, so I always strive to get in healthy fat. I try to make sure my diet is balanced in all areas without necessarily counting up fat grams or protein.

I’ve got the game on right now! I’ve already been yelling at the TV (mainly those refs – honestly are they serious with some of those calls?!). It feels like it might be a repeat of the NYE game, right down to the wire. Makes for good hockey, that’s for sure!

57 liane January 5, 2010

I have decided I need to be strategic about when I read your blog.
Read it after breakfast, and I have big time breakfast envy.
Read it mid-morning or mid-afternoon, and my stomach growls on cue.
Read it while eating lunch and/or dinner and I still have food envy and curse myself for not eating zucchini boats or whatever other fabulous meal you made.

Since you are severely limiting the time I can check your blog, I’ve decided you should just move out West and be my personal chef ;)

I’d move out East but that requires living in snow and I don’t do snow :)

I didn’t see the game because we were watching the Chicago Blackhawks game, but we did flip over(after spending 15 minutes trying to figure out and find what channel it was on) just in time to see the US score the game winning goal!

I’ve gotta say the Canadian fans are super classy.

Thanks so much for sharing this recipe with us! I also follow an anti-candida diet like Ricki at Diet, Dessert, and Dogs, so it’s super exciting to see a delicious recipe like this that I won’t need to alter at all! Yours turned out beautifully. And of course, thanks for linking to her blog. I’m so glad to have found it.

When you make the batter, can you keep them unbaked in the fridge, and bake them one at a time each morning? Or is it better to back them all at once, and keep them baked in the fridge?

68 Niki January 13, 2010

First off, I read/heard that someone poking, tapping or putting any pressure on your stomach while you are doing an ab exercise actually benefits it! It helps your ab muscles because you need to contract even more! So in the end, he was helping you!!! Anyways, that breakfast looks so good! A good meal if you are ready to run or use up some energy! Thanks for the recipe

69 Elle January 14, 2010

I just whizzed this up in my blender and I’m so excited to bake it tomorrow morning. I don’t like the texture of oatmeal, but I love the taste of oats, so this could be just the thing. I didn’t have applesauce on hand, so I blended up a banana in the mix for moisture and I didn’t have milk on hand, so i used water and a tsp of almond butter (could be almond milk-ish?). But the batter still looked remarkable similar to your picture, so I feel optimistic.

Reply

70 Alisha N January 17, 2010

First: shell and toast hazelnuts
Second: blanch and grind raw almonds
Also: spoon applesauce from the baby-food containers, chop dark chocolate bar…

This took a lot of time – it’s hard getting ingredients when you’re not the one going to the grocery store! But everything worked out and this sitting in the fridge is the reason I will wake up tomorrow morning.

Thanks for the recipe! =)

Hi Angela, I absolutely love your site. So far, everything I have made has been so good…nothing has been a disappointment! I’ve been making this baked oatmeals breakfast for a bit now, and love it with bananas and chocolate chips on top, but the last time I made it, I didn’t have all the ingredients. I used mashed bananas in place of the applesauce and topped it with some diced apples and a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar. Just like that, it was pretty good. But then today for lunch, after reheating one of them, I got the genius idea to add a spoonful of Justin’s Maple Almond Butter on top. Oh. My. Goodness. My FAVORITE way to eat this….sooooo good! Oh, and I am also a bit fan of your pumpkin pie chia pudding with crumbled happy trails cookies in it! Both my husband and I devoured it!
