The sweet taste of Nanaimo bars for breakfast? Oh yes I did <3

DSC02884 Nanaimo Bar Baked Oatmeal

Still obsessed with my mini stoneware cocettes, I make some version of a baked oatmeal every morning for breakfast. I was originally inspired by Katie’s baked oatmeals, and now love experimenting with my own. I’ve also discovered that having a lid for the ramekins works wonders- the dish inside remains moist & gooey, like cookie dough! Right now, ‘Nanaimo bar’ is the flavour that Dallas & I love the most! It’s not hard to imagine why, I’m sure. Who doesn’t want to eat a gooey, healthy version of a Nanaimo bar for breakfast?  blank Nanaimo Bar Baked Oatmeal

  1. Darn, wish I had seen this post early this morning, it would have made a perfect breakfast! Looks delicious, I’ll be pinning this one to make later. :)

    You are brilliant! I will definitely be making this on the weekend!
    Hope your wake up call this morning wasn’t too bad. I’ll rub it in that it’s my day off and I slept until 9. It was glorious ;)

    I do love a baked oatmeal, and Nanaimo bars are a fav, so this one will be a treat for sure!

  4. This looks fantastic! I love chocolate with oatmeal. I think I need those dishes- the lids sound amazing! I soft and gooey sounds delicious. :)

    • I agree, I’m all about chocolate in my oatmeal. And my little cocettes are probably my favourite kitchen toys!! Being stoneware, the set of 3 {from Le Creuset} is priced at $100, but I found them on sale for $39!! Money well spent! Of course, I have $1.99 ramekins that do the trick, too ;)

  5. Oh I think this may just be the BEST idea you’ve ever had! Since cutting out sugar (refined sugar) Nanaimo bars have just been one of those things I want but can’t even begin to think how to make over because they’re just sugar loaded haha. But this looks like a dream! Cannot wait to try it!

    • Thanks, Anna! That’s my thing with Nanaimo bars- I’m always craving them, but it’s darn near impossible to make one that isn’t loaded with some form of fat & sugar. This is my new fave treat for sure :D Hope you love it!

  6. Char, that looks INSANE! Like in INSANELY good!! I’m in love with your stoneware cocettes as well :))

  7. Sweet baby cheeses and all things holy and delicious, that looks amazing.
    I need more ramekins in my life so I can make stuff like this!

    What is custard powder? Is it a sugar substitute?

    • Custard powder is not a sugar substitute, it just gives it a dessert-y taste. Custard powder is used to make the frosting in traditional Nanaimo bars. It’s really inexpensive, and can be found in the baking section of any general supermarket :)
