This is the first time I’ll be properly experiencing the American football season. For so long, I’d read online about the whole atmosphere which is adopted around this. Friends get together, families are divided based on their teams of choice and there is a potential conflict between cities bordering one another.

Back in Australia, we had football too- Australian football or ‘Aussie Rules’. I am well aware that many of my friends from back home read this so I’m not going to make up some lies and pretend I was one of those die-hard fans.

I wasn’t.

I would rather have grown a kale farm that surrender myself to watching even HALF of the two hour long games.

Why am I looking forward to game night and the football season in another country, though? 

THE FOOD OF COURSE.

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh yes. 

When my friends at Silk reached out to collaborate again this month, I was thrilled, especially when I saw the challenge thrown my way- Create a Meat-free meal which would coincide with Monday night football.

I’m not the best advocate when it comes to choosing to eat meat-free. I really do prefer having some steak, chicken or seafood with my evening meal- Bonus points if it’s a jambalaya or something similar which incorporates multiple sources. However, I’ve made it a point to enjoy a meat-free dinner at least twice a week. I attest this to finally finding a tofu I enjoy and also being fortunate to be surrounded by amazing vegetarian restaurants.

Okay, I lied. I cheat when it comes to having a meat-free dinner. 

Why?

1 word. Brinner. A.k.a. Breakfast for dinner.

As part of Silk’s #MeatlessMondayNight initiative, I wanted to go the alternative meat-free route and one where my fellow brothers, sisters and Pokemon who are used to a meat-heavy dinner can ease themselves into- Breakfast for dinner. For anyone out there that needs one epic recipe to ease themselves into a meat-free meal I have your answer. This recipe is the marriage of two of life’s greatest breakfasts foods but with a healthy twist-

Sticky Cinnamon Roll, will you marry this baked oatmeal?

Enter- Healthy Sticky Cinnamon Roll Baked Oatmeal.

Who needs a Monday night Football with this epic creation?!

This Healthy Sticky Cinnamon Roll Baked Oatmeal will be your new meat-free dinner, breakfast, lunch and any other word you use for a snack or meal- It’s that good. It’s dense, chewy and if cooked perfectly, barely crumbles when cut into. Not only is it delicious to eat, it’s also sinfully nutritious. That’s right- It’s healthy, high in fiber and comes with a high protein option too. This is done two ways- Either mix in a scoop of protein powder in the actual batter OR choose the protein blended frosting option. 

I trialled this recipe twice- One using eggs and one using 2 flax eggs. They both worked out well, but the latter was slightly denser and needed a longer cooking time. Vegan friends please take note!

Ingredients

Dry ingredients

  • 2 cups gluten-free rolled oats or quinoa flakes
  • 1 cup gluten-free quick oats or quinoa flakes
  • 1 scoop protein powder optional
  • 1/2 cup-1 cup granulated sweetener of choice I used coconut palm sugar and a baking truvia blend
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 T cinnamon
  • 1 tsp allspice

Wet ingredients

  • 2 eggs for vegan version, sub for 2 flax eggs
  • 1 cup Silk Unsweetened almond milk
  • Pinch vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup + 2 T cashew butter Can sub for any nut butter, coconut oil or butter

For the Cinnamon Roll Glaze

For the protein packed Cinnamon Roll Glaze

  • 1-2 scoops of vanilla or cinnamon protein powder
  • Silk almond milk to thin out
  • Cinnamon for dusting

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a deep baking tray with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine all the dry ingredients and set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the eggs, milk, vanilla extract and melted nut butter and mix until fully incorporated.
  • Add the wet mixture to the dry and mix until fully combined. If mixture is crumbly, add a dash more milk until a thick batter is formed. Transfer to the lined baking dish and form into a rectangular shape and bake for 35-45 minutes, or until golden and cooked through.
  • While the oatmeal is baking, prepare your cinnamon roll glaze by whisking all ingredients in a small bowl.
  • Remove baked oatmeal and allow to cool slightly before slicing into pieces and covering with the glaze.

Notes

This baked oatmeal is delicious fresh out of the oven but can certainly be cooled and enjoyed later or prepped in advance. If prepping in advance, only prepare the glaze before consumption.
Baked oatmeal can be frozen and thawed easily.

    1. Maybe its because I’m Canadian, but I don’t really like football. And I honestly can’t say I have any friends who are into it it either. We’re hockey people up here, and things can get pretty crazy during the season. Brinner, though… I’ll always be a fan of <3

    2. Brinner is definitely where it is at – eggs for breakfast lunch and dinner if you ask me!
      David and I are American Football fans and are looking forward to watching the superbowl this year on a Monday morning at 8am! haha! We are really getting into Aussie Rules too which is coming to an end soon. As soon as we arrived we were constantly asked ‘what team do you support?’ so we had to pick quickly! Luckily the dockers are doing pretty well 🙂

    4. Watching sports = ew. Sorry! But I am a HUGE fan of breakfast for dinner–omelets, pancakes and more! This looks absolutely incredible too! I looooooooove sticky, moist and fluffy cinnamony oatmeal!

    5. I came across this on Pinterest. Hate to be an unhealthy bother but I made it the old fashioned way with brown sugar and peanut butter , milk and real eggs. It was wonderful. I know the trend is toward ” Health” foods today. However I personally believe there is no food healthier than the original. Thanks for a great recipe.

        1. It was and sorry we ate the whole thing. I don’t think it would travel well. You’re welcome to steal the idea though. Thanks so much for the recipe , it got my Mum out of her toast rut.

    6. this stuff is DA BOMB! it actually tastes like it’s bad for you, like it’s full of sweeteners …but it feels good to know it’s healthy and you can eat a lot of it :))
