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 thumb   Baked Cherry Pie Breakfast Pudding

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 thumb2   Baked Cherry Pie Breakfast Pudding 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

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.
