Valentine’s Day has always been one of my favorite holidays. Even when I was single, for what seemed like my entire life, I thought it was such a fun time to spend with friends or just my best gal Scout at home. That dog got me through many holidays alone. She has since left me in the dust to pursue her obsession with Patrick, but I remember the good ole days.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar, plus 2 tablespoons
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cup sliced strawberries (you can use frozen sliced strawberries as well)
  • 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Whipped cream, extra chocolate chips, sliced strawberries, and chocolate sauce for garnish; optional

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375F.
  2. Spray an 8x8 square baking dish or round baking dish with nonstick spray. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, stir together the oats, 1/3 cup brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, strawberries, and almost all of the chocolate chips. Pour the mixture into the baking dish and smooth out completely. Sprinkle with the remaining chocolate chips.
  4. Using the same bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, butter, and vanilla. Pour the milk mixture over the oat mixture, making sure to cover the entire mixture. Tap the dish on the counter lightly to make sure its evenly distributed.
  5. Bake for 40 minutes, or until the edges are bubbly and the top is golden. The center should not jiggle.
  6. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with the remaining 2 tablespoons brown sugar. Switch the oven to high broil and allow the oatmeal to toast for approximately 2-3 minutes. Watch it closely to make sure it doesn't burn.
  7. Remove from the oven and serve topped with fresh whipped cream, sliced strawberries, extra chocolate chips, or chocolate syrup. Toasted walnuts would also be tasty!
  8. Enjoy!

Haha, I am the complete opposite. I am not a fan of Valentine's day, but I CAN get behind this oatmeal! I adore oatmeal, and don't think it is boring one bit :) Love this!

Jessica @ A Kitchen Addiction
This is some of the best looking oatmeal I've seen! I'd love to start my day with a serving!
Erin @ The Almond Eater
This is beautifulllll and while I'm not a huge oatmeal fan, baked oatmeal is something I can get on board with. Kind of makes no sense, but it's true!
    Becky Hardin
    Thank you Erin! And I'm with you! I haven't made something like this before bc it didn't appeal to me, but I loved this so much. Thanks for stopping by!
LeeAnn
My husband does not chocolate. Will it still be tasty without it? Thanks. I love the recipe.
    Becky Hardin
    Absolutely! It will be just as good without the chocolate chips. You could even add a second type of fruit if he would like that, like raspberries. Thanks for stopping by!
Celeste | The Whole Serving
What a breakfast! I have never had baked oatmeal, I think it's time for that to change.
Erin @ Dinners, Dishes, and Desserts
We are not much for Valentine's Day around here. Never were when we were dating or early married years, and now with a kid even less. But I love this oatmeal. And Valentine's Day is only different around here because of the food - this is perfect :)
    Becky Hardin
    We are really the same way. We will do a dinner but not any gifts usually. Just give me the fun food!!
Katerina @ Diethood
