Superfood Skillet Breakfast Bake

Let’s talk a little bit about mornings. Sigh. Sadly, I am not a morning person. My mornings usually go like this:


6:15am – alarm goes off for the first time. I press snooze about 10 times and finally (begrudgingly) roll out of bed at 7am. Wash face, brush teeth, and put contacts in. Minimal makeup is applied. Hair is partially brushed (THANK YOU DRY SHAMPOO). I attempt to throw on what looks to be a put together outfit, and chuck my gym clothes in a bag. Coffee is poured into my mug, premade meals are thrown in my lunchbox (if I managed to make a lunch the night before) and I’m out the door and in my office by 7:30. LOL – yes I live 2 minutes from my office, but I have this awful habit of leaving myself little to no time in the mornings.

Skillet Baked Oats

I promise you I’m working on these bad habits (sort of), but you can probably guess that I have ZERO time to spend cooking breakfast in the mornings. My favorite thing is to make a big batch of something (smoothies, muffins, power bars, etc.) that can be swiped out of the fridge or heated up on the go. I cannot go without breakfast.

You wanna know what I made last week that was life changing? This Superfood Skillet Breakfast Bake.

Breakfast Bake with Superfoods

It’s chock full of good for you & filling ingredients and is just sweet enough to make even this non-morning person smile.

WHAT YOU’LL NEED
-Cast Iron Skillet or 8×8 Baking Dish

-Oats

-Quinoa

-Pecans (or your favorite nut – I recommend walnuts or cashews!)

-Unsweetened Almond Cashew Milk (or your favorite milk – cow’s milk, coconut milk, plain almond milk)

-Maple Syrup (or your favorite sweetener -honey, coconut sugar)

-Unsweetened Apple Sauce

– Butter or coconut oil

-Egg

-Baking Powder

-Cinnamon

-Salt

Optional Add-Ins:

-Blueberries (or any berry)

-A Peach (an apple would be so yummy, too!)

-Chia Seeds

Peach Blueberry Breakfast BakeWHAT YOU’LL DO
The best part about this one is how customizable it is. You can sub in different kinds of milk, nuts, fruit, sweetener, etc. all to meet your preferences or dietary needs.

Breakfast Bake with Almond Cashew Milk

my FAVORITE dairy-free milk alternative!

You’ll want to start by making your quinoa & preheating the oven to 375. Tip: if you have leftover quinoa from another meal, USE IT! Or, make extra and pair it with some veggies and protein throughout the week!

While the quinoa cooks, add the oats, pecans, applesauce, almond cashew milk, maple syrup, egg, melted butter or oil, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and chia into a bowl and mix.

Blueberry Breakfast Bake

Cool your quinoa off before adding it to the mixture or you’ll cook the egg! Or, if you’re impatient like me, you can temper the egg before adding it by adding bits of hot quinoa while whisking the egg.

Skillet Bake with Fruit & Oats

Mix up the ingredients really well and fold in the blueberries. Pour the “batter” into a lightly greased (coconut oil or butter) skillet. Top the mixture with your peach & pop it into your preheated oven. Bake for about 40 mins or until the middle looks cooked and the outsides turn slightly golden brown.

Let this cool and cut into wedges.

Baked Oatmeal

You can top with a bit of maple syrup, yogurt, extra nuts, or anything you want.

OR you can just scarf it down plain. I like to let the wedges cool and place a few in the fridge or freezer for future crazy mornings.

TELL ME! Are any of you morning people?! What is your favorite way to grab a quick breakfast in the AM?

    LOL! I’m actually a total morning person (my husband jokes that I spring out of bed like a pop tart shooting out of a toaster)! But I like to have make-ahead breakfasts on hand and ready to go! I try to get as much done in the two hours I have before my babies wake up…and I don’t want to spend any of those precious early morning minutes cooking! This looks amazing!

      Teach me your ways! I know I can’t go on like this forever – haha! But thank you!!!

    Ooh, it looks like a delicious breakfast cake, and it’s so pretty! I think it would be amazing to make this and eat a piece every day with peanut butter. 🙂

    • allmcd3

      You said it sista! I froze most of it when I made it and I just ate the last bit this morning (tears). PB is the perfect pairing 🙂

    Yum! Love the quinoa in this. I have been looking for recipes to get me out of my breakfast rut, and this one definitely fits the bill!

    • allmcd3

      So glad you like it! Seriously, so easy girl!

    I’m the complete opposite in the morning. I wake up at least three hours before I have to be somewhere. I like to ease into the day. But I still need a quick breakfast. This breakfast bake is so smart. I love all the great ingredients you packed into it – yum! It will be versatile as the seasons change, too!

    • allmcd3

      Exactly!!!! I want to try apple cinnamon soon. Maybe pumpkin and raisin, too!

    LOVE this! Ok, seriously, my mornings follow a very similar pattern. Often I’m late to work because I can’t get my feet on the floor and my lazy bum out of bed! I will definitely be trying this. Lately I’ve been in a little bit of a Cheerio’s slump, and I don’t love it. I’ve pinned this recipe, and will be trying it out soon! Thanks for sharing!

    Cheers,

    Britney
