Tropical Pineapple Boozy Baked Oatmeal

If Pineapple Upside Down Cake was morphed into breakfast, this would be it.

Shredded coconut, rolled oats, pineapple, banana, and a shot of coconut rum for good measure, makes this one of the tastiest oatmeal recipes to ever cross my lips. The coconut rum accents the tropical flavours in the dish, but you can always leave it out if you need to. Rum extract or coconut extract would work fine too I’m sure.

Cinnamon and ginger add to the party-in-your-mouth! Oh and it’s a party I tell ya.

This baked oatmeal is sure to win over a crowd and it would be a lovely addition to a brunch menu. Try serving it with some whipped coconut cream to really take it up a notch. Rest assured though, it tastes amazing without any toppings at all. This isn’t one of those baked oatmeal’s that you need to add a bunch of things on top to make it taste good. It’s absolutely amazing served plain straight from the dish.

Throwing it together only takes about 10 minutes and then you’ll need to bake it for about an hour. The smell when you pull it from the oven is just heavenly – the wait was sure worth it.

Once it’s baked the most challenging part is letting it cool down for about 10-15 minutes before digging in. More waiting, I know, but that baby is sizzling h-o-t. When you take it out of the oven, it will look under baked in some parts, but this is totally normal (I reassure myself this multiple times a week in the kitchen!). When it’s still warm it has the texture of stove-top oatmeal (with firm edges), but once it cools completely it’s fairly solid and firm, like a soft oatmeal square. I gave the pineapple rounds a generous sprinkle of cinnamon and coconut sugar before going in the oven – never a bad idea!

Tropical Pineapple Boozy Baked Oatmeal

Vegan, oil-free, soy-free, gluten-free (only if using gluten-free oats)

Serves 6

Dry ingredients:

  • 1.5 cups rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup oat flour
  • 1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp fine grain sea salt

 

Wet ingredients:

  • 2.5 cups almond milk (or coconut milk)
  • 3-4 tbsp pure maple syrup, to taste
  • 2 tbsp coconut rum (optional – or try 1/2-1 tsp rum extract or coconut extract)
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 large banana (or two small), peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh pineapple
  • 6 fresh pineapple rings (about 1/2-inch thick)

 

1. Preheat oven to 350F and lightly grease a 2 or 2.5 quart baking dish. I used a 2.5 quart baking dish (10 cup) and it was a tad bit large, so I think 2 quart would work just fine.

2. Stir all dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl.

3. Add the wet ingredients (milk, maple syrup, optional coconut rum or extract, and vanilla) into the dry ingredients and stir well to combine. Fold in the chopped banana and chopped pineapple.

4. Pour oatmeal mixture into the baking dish and spread out evenly. Place the 6 pineapple rings on top of the oatmeal and sprinkle with cinnamon and coconut sugar (or other granulated sugar).

5. Bake at 350F, uncovered, for 55-65 minutes or until the oatmeal is golden and firm in some spots, but still soft in others. Allow the oatmeal to cool in the dish for 10-15 minutes before digging in. Serve with whipped coconut cream to take this dish over the top!

I love that Eric is your hand model sometimes! Wish I could get Blake to do the same ;)

Are you celebrating your birthday this weekend or next? Either way, I hope you have a fantastic weekend. See you soon.

hah – he’s not the most eager hand model. The pay really sucks, but he gets paid with food so I guess that helps. ;)
My birthday is on the 16th – we’ll have to celebrate both our birthdays in a few weeks!

Just when I thought every possible oatmeal recipe had been thought of, you come up with this! Looks fantastic and like a wonderful variation on the typical bland breakfast. I’m going on a tropical vacation next week and this looks like the perfect pick-me-up when we return to the cold!

LisaR @ Who Stole My Baby? May 10, 2013

Yum. Pineapple slices look like those hole-protector stickers to me, though. I think I’ve worked in an office too long when my breakfast starts to look like office supplies.

Oh my gosh, this looks amazing! I thought I had left oatmeal behind for the summer months, but I may have to bring it back and get into a tropical state of mind. Yum!

Sarah @ Making Thyme for Health May 10, 2013

This oatmeal looks beautifully delicious! It would be perfect for a Mothers Day brunch. And I love your background, is it turquoise cement? Makes me think of the Caribbean and vacation, sigh.

Hi! I was wondering what brand of baking dish is used in these pictures?!

Thanks :)

Hey Lauren, It says “Strawberry Street” on the bottom – it’s from Winners or Homesense :)

I LOVE roasting or just sauteing pineapple. I put it in my TVP oatmeal with coconut… baked is just brilliant though! Sounds like a great Mother’s Day to me! :)

This looks outstanding. Although I’m slightly thrown off by the banner add that encourages me to “wake up to eggs!”

Hi Dara,
Thanks for letting me know – we can’t see the ads that are run in the US and elsewhere, but we do block as many non-vegan brands as possible (we literally have hundreds blocked!) with our ad hosts.

This looks delicious, its making me hungry and lunch is so far away! I love the pineapple, rum and coconut combo, its such a great idea to turn it into an oatmeal dish. I made overnight oats with dried mango and coconut a couple weeks ago and it was delicious, I’m sure mango would taste great in this recipe as well.

Yum, coconut and pineapple. Always a winning combination! I’m liking the addition of cinnamon here!

I’ve made two different versions of baked oatmeal, and loved them. This one looks very fun and those flavors would have me in tropical paradise.

I think you’ve given the mimosa a run for its money here. Coconut rum in oatmeal? That sounds even more delicious than coconut rum in a cocktail. ;)

Wow, I really want this! But waiting so long for breakfast? When I get up I feel like “I need food, nooow!” :D Hmm, maybe I’ll just make it for dinner some time.

Krista Jett May 10, 2013

yum! I can’t wait to try this! Here in Rwanda we get fresh pineapple every day. It’s amazing and this recipe is perfect. I think some chopped macademia nuts could add a nice crunch to the top. Maybe I’ll try that little addition. Thanks!

I will certainly keep it in mind – Eric is the pro at it! :)

Averie @ Averie Cooks May 10, 2013

This is the best take on oatmeal ever! Pineapple is a fave of mine ( I made a Hawaiian Bread overnight French Toast Bake with Pineapple & Mango a month or so ago) – but the boozy part pushes it over the good edge. Love it!

Reply

Emily @ The Sunny Studio May 10, 2013

This looks divine! My version of baked oatmeal is very plain (and I add PB&J or other toppings to spice it up), but I love this fancier version!! Definitely something I would serve to guests for a fun summery brunch. Thanks!

Ooh boozy breakfasts! I like it! As a former coconut loather, I can’t seem to get enough of it these days and love love love the pineapple combo. Is Eric’s payment as your hand model first dibs on taste testing? ;) Have a great weekend Ange!
