Have you ever tried to eat your oats oven baked? Baked coconut oatmeal with plums is a really nice and cozy autumn breakfast.
A nice cup of coffee or tea and a nice thick bar of warm oatmeal bake with vanilla custard. Omnom.
Baked coconut oatmeal is perfect for a weekend brunch with friends and family. One oven pan of the bake will feed a crowd.
The bake can be served hot from the oven of completely cooled so you could make it the day before. The best it is straight from the oven with cold vanilla custard or ice cream. The plums gives nice acidness to the bake. My kids weren’t great fans of the coconut flakes although in my opinion they gave the bake a nice texture. You could replace them with shredded coconut.
The coconut sugar in the recipe can be switched to maple syrup or even to apple sauce for a sugar free version. Or just simply leave the coconut sugar out.
