I named this recipe ‘Healthy Tropical Baked Oatmeal’ but I really could’ve called it ‘Vacation in a bowl’… because that’s what it tastes like. I’m not even being dramatic when I say that eating this makes you feel like you’re off on a deserted island soaking up the sun. (Which believe me, I totally wish I was!) I’ve made a lot of baked oatmeal recipes before (Like this Blueberry Oatmeal Breakfast Bake) but honestly none of them compare to this one. I think it’s a combo of the super sweet tropical fruit + the utterly delicious Vanilla Coconut Water Collagen Peptides. YUM.
If you’ve been around here for a while.. you know that I’m all about easy, delicious recipes. When I first started eating oatmeal every day for breakfast in college, I knew there had to be an easier way to prepare it than getting up, cooking it in the pan, cleaning the pan… you know the drill. It’s a pain. Then I found overnight oats, which are pretty delish.. but not the same as real, cooked oatmeal. When I first tried baked oatmeal… I was seriously hooked. It’s SO darn easy to make, and tastes just like when you make it in the pan!! My favorite party about it (in addition to no dishes – yay!) is that you can add in all kinds of stuff to it to boost the nutritional value of the dish.
Collagen peptides are one of my favorite things to add into baked oatmeal. If you use the regular collagen peptides you can’t even taste them, but if you use the Vanilla & Coconut Water Collagen Peptides you get the nutritional boost AND the flavor. Win win! Adding collagen peptides to my daily diet have made my hair, skin and nails significantly stronger. It also has a plethora of benefits for your joint health, bone health, sleep cycle, and our immune and digestive systems! (You can read all about that here) They’re perfect in this Healthy Tropical Baked Oatmeal.. I know you’re going to love it!
Are you a big oatmeal-for-breakfast person? I definitely am. I love it in the colder months to help warm me up in the morning, but it’s super yummy in the summer time too! I know I’m going to be making this all summer long and pretending I’m on vacation!
