Description

A healthier alternative to that cinnamon roll you’ve been craving.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Rolled Oats
  • ½ cups Almond Milk
  • ½ cups Unsweetened Applesauce
  • 2 Tablespoons Chopped Pecans
  • 1-½ Tablespoon Light Brown Sugar
  • ¾ teaspoons Ground Cinnamon
  • FOR THE FROSTING:
  • FROSTING
  • 4 ounces, fluid 2% Greek Yogurt
  • 2 Tablespoons Powdered Sugar

Preparation

Preheat oven to 375ºF. Generously spray 2 ramekins with baking spray.

In a medium bowl, stir together oats, almond milk, applesauce, pecans, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Scoop even portions into each ramekin.

Bake for 15-20 minutes, then remove from oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes. Turn over each ramekin to gently remove each “bun”.

For the frosting, use a handheld mixer to whip powdered sugar into Greek yogurt in a small mixing bowl. Spoon “frosting” over “buns” and sprinkle with additional ground cinnamon.

I eat oats EVERY day, and this oatmeal is BY FAR the BEST baked oatmeal I have EVER had. I am so glad it makes 2 servings so I can eat it 2 days in a row. (I may or may not have marked it mine only in the fridge- don’t judge me.)
