Baked Oatmeals with Plums
Don’t you love September? Here is a simple and delicious recipe for this golden month🍁🌻 That is the start of Vata in Ayurveda, the dosha of air and ether elements, the time of winds, cooler weather, dryness and roughness. That is why we crave for a warm-cozy afternoon, with tea and fresh baked crumbles!
- 2-3 Plums (or 1 apple, deseeded and cut into pieces or a few tablespoons of homemade plum marmalade)
- 3-4 tbsp Oats
- 1-2 tbs Seeds like sunflower, pumpkin, flax, sesame
- Coconut shreds or shaves to decorate
- 1 tbs Coconut oil or ghee
- Warming spices like Cinnamon, cardamom, clove, star anise
- Pure Vanilla and pinch of pink salt
- If you are not using a marmalade then you can add a natural sweetener like maple or date syrup, about 1teaspoon or 1tbs raisins/mulberries
- 1 tbs Almond shaves or powder (Optional)
Set the oven to 160 degrees celsius
Brush half the the oil into your heat resistant dish
Place the fruits or marmalade on the bottom
If you are not using marmalade, drizzle a little maple or date syrup
Sprinkle oats, seeds, coconut, almond, spices, vanilla and salt
Drizzle rest of the oil on top
Bake for about 15-20min or until the opt is golden brown and fruits are cooked
Enjoy with a ginger-cardamom-hibiscus tea!
For marmalade, simply cook the cut plums with a little bit of water and spices like cinnamon, clove, star anise, vanilla. You can add 1-2 dates, or raisins to make it sweeter if your plums are not sweet enough. First bring to boil and then simmer until they are soft. Add chia seeds (I added 2 tbs for about 1kg plums) before or after blending the plums in a blender or food processor and mix them all. Pour to jars while they are hot, seal well and let them cool. I keep them in the fridge just in case.
