Baked Cherry Pie Breakfast Pudding

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on January 5, 2010

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



  • 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!




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!

OMG it looks amazing!!!! And gorgeous presentation! YUM!


leilani January 12, 2010 at 7:12 pm

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.


Lindsay Perrone (goodiesgalore) January 5, 2010 at 11:49 am

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????


Angela (Oh She Glows) January 5, 2010 at 11:56 am

hahaahah PEPSI CHEER = epic fail!!!


Angela (Oh She Glows) January 5, 2010 at 11:56 am

krissy January 5, 2010 at 11:50 am


P.S. I will not be reciting that ridiculous cheer that Pepsi has decided to come up with either! – EMBARASSING!



rungirlrunn January 5, 2010 at 11:55 am

Kate January 5, 2010 at 12:25 pm

I definitely have a love/hate relationship with whittling, but I know it’ll be all love in a few weeks :)

Cannot wait for hockey tonight!!


AGS January 5, 2010 at 12:25 pm

I love that you fit in the workout yesterday. I didn’t manage to get one in myself yesterday, but I am *determined* to do so today! I promise myself not to work late! Thanks for being the wonderful example that you are!


skinnyrunner January 5, 2010 at 12:26 pm

Ameena January 5, 2010 at 12:35 pm

Sorry I meant love not live. My 4-year-old was just babbling something in my ear, hence the typo!


Danielle (Coffee Run) January 5, 2010 at 12:48 pm

Ok maybe I should catch up on blog reading BEFORE breakfast. I just get hungry again looking at all your delicious pictures!


Jenny January 5, 2010 at 12:52 pm

That looks amazing! Now all I need are some baking dishes.. ;)


David January 5, 2010 at 12:53 pm

Looks good! Might have to give that one a try!


Gillian January 5, 2010 at 12:54 pm

GO TEAM CANADA!!!!! I’ll be watching as well!

That looks like one brekky that is high on the yummy scale!


Allison January 5, 2010 at 1:06 pm

im not sure if i will be watching it, but i know it will be busy around here today as everyone heads to that major game! (i am in the city where it is being hosted)
your foods look delicious, im sure i will be trying out some of your recipes during my vegan detox here to help me get through and get through also when i am 100% vegan later on.


Erin January 5, 2010 at 1:06 pm

He poked you?! Yeah, you definitely are justified in planting produce stickers! As if you really need a reason, right?! :-)


Ricki January 5, 2010 at 1:08 pm

Angela, I love your adaptation of the recipe! It’s gorgeous and the bananas and cherries make it sound soooo decadent ;) I know I’d love bananas in this–and will make it that way, as soon as I can have sweet fruits again! :)


Anne [email protected] Weigh of Life January 5, 2010 at 1:16 pm

The recipe looks so awesome!


Leah January 5, 2010 at 1:21 pm

That looks SO good! Im totally trying this the first chance I get, thanks for posting it!


Lauren January 5, 2010 at 1:37 pm

I’m not all about the baking like you are, but I’ve been known to read text books for hours, then take a break to read a novel for fun. Passion is passion!


Lauren @ Reading and Running January 5, 2010 at 1:53 pm

I will definitely be watching the game tonight! But I’ll be rooting for USA (even though we’ll lose)! I just might have to try one of these tasty little pies, so yummy looking!


Chelsea January 5, 2010 at 2:04 pm

The picture with it on a spoon? The cherry totally looks like a fly! The recipe looks delish though and I will definitely be making this.


Angela (Oh She Glows) January 5, 2010 at 3:19 pm

totally laughed out loud at this


Paige @ Running Around Normal January 5, 2010 at 2:24 pm

I love all the different variations you did! These look wonderful, Angela!!


amy January 5, 2010 at 2:31 pm

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.


Angela (Oh She Glows) January 5, 2010 at 3:18 pm

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.


Kristine January 5, 2010 at 2:37 pm

Yum thank you for those breakfast ideas!


Jil January 5, 2010 at 2:43 pm

Ohhh my gosh. This looks amazing!!!! The banana and cacao nibs particularly caught my eye…yummm. I will definitely add this to my roster of “must bake” recipes! — and baha, Eric will get his! haha


Amanda January 5, 2010 at 3:06 pm

I agree: every time I try a plank up a little piece of me dies (and swears). But I’m impressed you got your work out in despite that busy day! You truly are inspiring!


Amelia January 5, 2010 at 3:41 pm

The breakfast pudding sounds so good! I’m definitely saving this recipe to make. Sounds like an excellent time saver too! :)


Tracie @hollafoodzone January 5, 2010 at 3:57 pm

Ohmigod – that recipe is a KEEPER! nice work!


Britt January 5, 2010 at 4:05 pm

That looks so yummy!! (Go Canada Go!)


Katy @ These Beautiful Feet January 5, 2010 at 4:43 pm

That pudding looks sooo good, just like dessert!! Mmmm. I will have to try that sometime. I love premaking meals and having it right at your finger tips!! Makes life that much easier. :) I started whittle my middle today as well!


Gracie January 5, 2010 at 4:48 pm

I am LOVING you right now!!! I need to try that recipe ASAP!!


Sarah January 5, 2010 at 5:14 pm

That looks so great and I love that you broke it into 3 portions/flavors!


Natasha January 5, 2010 at 5:28 pm



Jenny January 5, 2010 at 6:31 pm

HELL yea on that plank-up! ;)

Wow that looks delicious! I love breakfast foods.


Gelareh @ Orange Truffle January 5, 2010 at 7:24 pm

The breakfast pudding looks fab!


sarah (the SHU box) January 5, 2010 at 8:04 pm

MMMM that looks delicious! also, i applaud your non-fat-fearing ways. GOOD FAT IS GOOD (and will not make you fat!). (this is ghost world sarah btw -changed the name :) )


Tiffany S. January 5, 2010 at 8:07 pm

I saved your blog for last today because the title just told me it was gonna be GOO-OO-OOD! Definitely a weekend breakfast treat! Thanks a billion for the nutritionals as I’m counting cals now (eeerggghhhh).



Katie January 5, 2010 at 8:25 pm

Wow. I want that now. I want all three though! :)


Leigh January 5, 2010 at 9:40 pm

I agree with you on the plank ups! They are killer even if you don’t have your foot out to the side


Valerie January 5, 2010 at 10:34 pm

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!


liane January 5, 2010 at 11:07 pm

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 :)


[email protected] January 6, 2010 at 12:52 am

I gotta admit – after your original post on the produce stickers, I will never look at mine the same way again. I have started sticking them on the sink for the sheer reason that I find it entertaining.


Mandi January 6, 2010 at 1:27 am

ooh this is sooo going on the list for next weeks breakfasts. My bananas should be ripe by then :)


Aletheia January 6, 2010 at 1:35 am

OH MY GOSH I CAN’T BELIEVE WE LOST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Um. Your breakfast pudding looks AH-MAAZING.


stina6584 January 6, 2010 at 2:40 am

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.


Katie January 6, 2010 at 1:28 pm

I am so making this tonight!


Kim January 6, 2010 at 3:48 pm

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.

p.s. Just came home from Christmas vacation last week to find my first box of Glo Bars waiting for me. LOVE them! :)


Michelle January 6, 2010 at 9:39 pm

WOW! That looks amazing! I’ll be making it for myself ASAP. :D


Jolene January 6, 2010 at 11:08 pm

You are a domestic goddess.

I seriously need to dedicate a few days to making ALL of the recipes you post. I don’t know how you find the time to do all that you do. Those look fantastic.


Wink January 7, 2010 at 10:48 am

I baked this last night and ate it for breakfast. It was sooooo good and filling. Thank you so much for posting this recipe.


Ashley January 11, 2010 at 12:55 pm

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?


Niki January 13, 2010 at 4:46 pm

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


Elle January 14, 2010 at 11:10 pm

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.


Alisha N January 17, 2010 at 10:05 pm

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! =)


Meghan May 19, 2010 at 6:16 pm

Hey, the recipe looks really good, but I was wondering if it would be possible to make it without nuts.


Mali K September 21, 2010 at 9:55 am

Wow, these look fantastic! I’m salivating!


Katie October 25, 2013 at 12:59 pm

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!


Angela (Oh She Glows) October 26, 2013 at 11:10 am

thanks for your kind words Katie!


Stacey September 3, 2017 at 5:55 pm

This looks really good, but I think the name is a bit misleading. Perhaps Baked Fruit Pie Breakfast pudding? You list all fruit as ‘optional’ and none in the batter. Just a thought. (Going to make anyway! Looks delicious)
