Black Forest Baked Oatmeal

 This Black Forest Baked Oatmeal is full of chocolate and cherry goodness. It’s a healthy breakfast version of the original cake.

I love holiday traditions (like my annual Christmas light ride that you might have read about in my Gingerbread Hot Chocolate post).  When I think of a country that reminds me the most of Christmas, I think of Germany because many of our holiday traditions like the Christmas tree and Santa Claus come from there.

Side note – is it weird I had to look up how to spell Santa Claus? The “Claus” didn’t look right but I guess it’s correct (since it’s German). I must have been spelling it wrong for years!

German Traditions

Germany is one of my favorite places to visit. A few years ago I traveled to the Black Forest with my mom and was very disappointed that I couldn’t have its signature dessert full of chocolate, cherries, and whipped cream.

When I was thinking of recipes to create for the holidays, I wanted to create a recipe that reminded me of a German Christmas but would also be healthy. And because so many people liked my Baked Pumpkin Oatmeal I thought I’d do a holiday version, so I came up with a Black Forest Baked Oatmeal.

Black Forest Baked Oatmeal Nutrition

My Black Forest Baked Oatmeal can either be a festive breakfast or healthy dessert – either way it’s tasty. The oats are filling and provide fiber, protein and complex carbohydrates.

Sure this might be a bit of an indulgence for breakfast with the maple syrup and coconut whipped cream topping but what fun is being perfect all the time? It’s the holiday season!
