Ingredients

  • 2 cups old fashioned oatmeal
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds (or nuts of your choice)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon pink Himalayan salt
  • 2 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 3/4 cup collagen
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons MCT oil (or melted coconut oil or melted butter)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F and spray an 8-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, combine oats, almonds, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.
  3. Pour in the almond milk followed by the collagen and stir to combine. Add the MCT oil, maple syrup, egg and vanilla and stir to thoroughly mix ingredients together.
  4. Pour oatmeal into baking dish and bake for 45 minutes or until top is set.
  5. Allow baked oatmeal to cool for several minutes before slicing and topping with desired toppings. Refrigerate any leftovers in an air-tight container.

Notes

It is important to use a kind of collagen that easily dissolves in liquid in this recipe. I’ve made this recipe with both Great Lakes Grass-Fed Collagen Hydrolysate and Ancient Nutrition Collagen Powder and both worked great. Tip: I buy my Great Lakes collagen on Thrive Market and that is the cheapest I’ve found it anywhere!
