Blueberry Coconut Steel Cut Oatmeal | recipe on FamilyFreshCooking.com #vegan #glutenfree

Can you believe the color of these oats? All of the purple and blue hues have me even more excited than usual for my favorite meal of the day! This breakfast is a creamy, dreamy combo of coconut + almond milks, hearty steel cut oats and as many combinations of blueberries as I could fit in. This could double as dessert it is that good. A vegan & gluten free meal to suit anyones cravings!

This recipe has been added to the Slow Cooker Challenge hosted by The Naptime Chef and Big Girls Small Kitchen.

Blueberry Bliss! FamilyFreshCooking.com

I do need to admit that this post was tricky to work on as it had me starving. Not only was I craving more of these steel cut oats, but hunting around for recipe links to share with you sealed the deal even more.

In this recipe I used lots of fresh blueberries and some dried ones too. They are all baked into the oatmeal and I made a fresh blueberry sauce too. Quite similar to what I did with my Gluten Free Very Blueberry Cake last year.

Please don’t forget the extra blueberry sauce. Trust me on this one…it is worth the few extra minutes of your time.

I use this sauce also on my Coconut Corn PancakesMixed Berry Yogurt Parfaits and Champagne Vanilla Pudding.

Besides they sound kinda cute when they pop, burst and sizzle in the skillet. Also don’t forget the nuts. That would be tragic…

The smell that fills the house as this bakes is wonderful…just like blueberry pie.

Do you own a slow cooker? Honestly I do not, but I am really into the idea of combining all kinds of tasty ingredients and letting them simmer or bake for a good long time. I let the oatmeal do it’s thing in my Le Creuset stoneware baker. All I had to do was combine all of my ingredients and step away while it baked.

Gives me more time to do all of the other things that need to get done around here.

coffee + milk | FamilyFreshCooking.com  One of my favorite things is making a Big Batch of oatmeal to enjoy throughout the whole week. The feeling of waking up and having a gourmet, healthy breakfast at the ready is splendid!

Blueberries are little little squadgie supermodels. I could not stop taking photos of these perfect little puffy orbs. With a little spritz of water and fresh mint leaves they really come to life…

Blueberry Love | FamilyFreshCooking.com If you don’t have steel cut oats (also know as Irish Oats) handy  that’s OK. Just be sure to use old-fashioned rolled oats or another favorite of mine Coach’s Oats. If you use those, adjust the amount of liquid  according to the package directions. You could also cut back on the baking time a little too. I love the texture and slightly nutty flavor of steel cut oats.

If it is essential that you stick to a gluten free diet then please check that your oats are certified gluten free.

Bake this recipe the day/night before you plan on serving it so it has time to soak up all the liquid and thicken in your fridge.

What are your favorite ingredients to add to oatmeal? Do you use a slow cooker? If so what do you like to cook in it?

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 60 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour, 5 minutes

Yield: 8-10 servings

Blueberry-Coconut Baked Steel Cut Oatmeal

Ingredients

    Oatmeal
  • 1 1/2 cups (260 grams) Steel Cut Irish Oats
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground Ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine Sea Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 4 cups (950 ml, 32 ounces) unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
  • 2 cups (480 ml, 16 ounces) light unsweetened Coconut Milk
  • 1 1/2 (240 grams) cups fresh Blueberries (frozen OK too, do not thaw first)
  • 1/4 cup (47 grams) unsweetened dried Blueberries
  • 1/4 cup (22 grams) unsweetened Coconut Flake
  • Vanilla Stevia Drops or your favorite natural sweetener to taste
  • Blueberry Sauce
  • 2 cups (360 grams) fresh or frozen Blueberries
  • Optional Toppings
  • Toasted Nuts
  • Coconut Flake
  • Whipped Cream (vegan or not)
  • extra dried and fresh Blueberries
  • Coconut Milk

Method

    Oatmeal
  • Pre heat oven to 350 degrees F with the rack in the center. Lightly coat a 13X9X2" inch baking dish with cooking spray. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl adding blueberries and coconut last. Sweeten to taste (I used 2 droppers full of vanilla stevia drops.) Bake for about one hour. The oatmeal will appear not done when you take it out of the oven. Remove from the oven and let it cool to room temperature. Then put it in your refrigerator overnight for best results. It will thicken nicely in there.
  • Blueberry Sauce
  • Heat the blueberries with a splash of water over medium high heat. When you hear them sizzle reduce heat to medium and cook for about 5 minutes until saucy. Mash the blueberries against the side of the pan with a spatula.
  • Serve oatmeal with some almond or coconut milk and blueberry sauce.
  • Notes
  • Cook this oatmeal the night before you plan on serving it so I has time to thicken in the refrigerator. Re-heat portions before serving.

I love this idea. I also hopped over to your big batch post. What great advice. I always cook extra brown rice. I just got a pressure cooker which makes making brown rice a little more of a last minute addition to any dinner, but I still like to make it in big batches. I always cook extra chicken too, but with two growing boys and a husband with a healthy appetite it never lasts in the fridge for me to make a salad the next day. Thanks for the tips!

And I usually always use it when my husband wants roast or stew – the meat is always awesome when it comes out. I love that you put blueberries with coconut in your oatmeal – sounds delicious!

In the summer, I often simply mix in blueberries to my pot of oats and finish cooking until they just begin to burst. A little sprinkled salt and drizzled maple syrup and sesame tahini drizzled on top, and it becomes one of my favorite go-to summer breakfasts. You’re right about blueberries really jazzing up the color! Yours is beautiful.

68 Marla January 22, 2012 at 12:36 pm

Hi Cath, your oats should be done. While in the oven they will still have some jiggle. Even when it is done cooking. I suggest you take it out and let it cool & firm up outside the oven. Let me know if this works for you. When you store it in the fridge it will firm up even more :)

I don’t have Stevia drops. How much of the powdered stevia can I use as a replacement? I just started using stevia to sweeten things like my coffee. I have zero baking experience with it.

Reply

76 Marla February 22, 2012 at 2:27 pm

Hi Shawna. Great question. Since I don’t know what stevia you have & they all vary widely I suggest you just put in a small amount and get to know the brand you have. You can easily adjust the sweetness per person when serving. Which powder are you using?

This is delish!! I made it pretty much exact except I used honey to sweeten because i was out of stevia. Next time i would just make a smaller pan (1/2 recipe). I did cook it for an hour and then refrigerate but the next morning it still seemed too undercooked so i cut a peice and re-heated for 20 minutes and it was a little cripspy on the edges. Mmmm. The added sauce and coconut milk make it PERFECT!
Thx for recipe! Will try some other variations next time as well :)

Hi Angie, happy you found me too. Yes, the oats will cook when you bake them. Do not pre cook. I suggest that you bake this recipe the night before you want to eat it. This way all the liquid is absorbed and you get the fullest flavor.

This looks like the perfect weekend breakfast and way to use up last years frozen blueberries. I’m just wondering if the coconut milk you use is from a can or carton?

This was fantastic. I got sick of my usual oatmeal and googled oatmeal recipes. I felt a bit silly googling oatmeal recipes but I’m so glad I did because this is the best oatmeal I’ve ever had.

The only thing I changed was that I used maple syrup (I did put a little too much, so I’ll use a bit less next time). Also, I halved the recipe. Everything else I followed as-is. Oh, and I didn’t even eat it with toppings…I wasn’t patient enough; I wanted to eat it as soon as I woke up :)

Thanks for posting this recipe!

I do my steel cut oats in the slow cooker and they turn out beautifully…just a tad more liquid is all you need….they stem up and are sooooo creamy. I am simple..1/2 almond milk and 1/2 water. I add my fixins’ as I eat them. I usually make enough for the whole week. This sounds delicious as a yummy breakfast for the whole family.

I made this recipe yesterday and tried it this morning. I did use about a cup of frozen blueberries with my fresh and the juices from that must have been the cause of my oatmeal coming out a bluishy-green color instead of white with blue swirls… but otherwise the flavors were great! Very filling amd satisfyimg. The sauce is a must as well. It added that powerful sweet and tart punch you expect from the berries which are a little more muted in the oatmeal itself. I also assumed coconut milk in a refridgerated carton and it turned out very nice as well. Thanks for the recipe!

I made this and it was delicious! I poured everything into a pan and sprinkled blueberries, shaved coconut, and pecans on top. I added 4 packets of stevia since my liquid stevia was all gone. So yummy!!!! I ate some now because I can’t wait until the morning. Have you done the nutritional content for this?

I just found your blog on pinterest, and this recipe was a great inspiration for my own personal single serving spinoff. Would you mind if I borrow your recipe as long as I site you as my inspiration? Thanks! Amber Johnson

can you double the almond milk if you do not have coconut milk? Also do you have the nutrition info on this recipe? Can’t wait to try this!

I made this recipe this morning (early…and let it set) for my breakfast. Amazing! I hate it when people make a bunch of changes to a recipe, but I did so successfully (mostly out of necessity) and wanted to share in case someone else needed to do so also. I did a half batch because I am the only one who would be eating it. Next time I may do a full batch and freeze the portions for later breakfasts (and lunches!!). I also used Bob’s Red Mill gluten-free oats and all So Delicious original unsweetened coconut milk since I have gluten and nut sensitivities. I also considered not making the sauce and just throwing in the extra berries, but I went the extra step. I am so glad I did! It elevates the oatmeal from morning oatmeal to a “fancy” morning breakfast a step above the usual. Thanks for a delicious recipe I will be sharing with a friend!

Hi! I’m so glad to hear you enjoyed this oatmeal! I do love when people use my recipes as a guide & follow their own intuitions. Your adaptations sound great!!
