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!

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 :)

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)
