I made this recipe because I signed up to be a tester for the weekly recipe contest on Food 52.com. The entry for Maple Espresso Baked Oatmeal sounded delightful and the perfect accompaniment to my morning greek yogurt so I decided to volunteer to test it. I really enjoyed the results of the recipe and I would suggest it to anyone wanting a quick and tasty addition to their breakfast.
I followed the recipe pretty much to the T the only changes were I used dried cranberries and cold eggs I did not see why the eggs needed to be at room temperature and it turned out just fine with the cold eggs. I also used a half and half mixture of Syrup and Honey since I ran out of syrup which still yielded a just sweet enough final product.
I really enjoyed the results of this recipe and will defiantly be making it again with a few modifications and additions. I plan on adding some Flax Seed, Wheat Bran, and Sunflower Seeds to make it extra nutritious and tasty.
In mine I used the following:
1Tbsp Powdered Espresso
1/4 Cup Agave Maple Syrup
1/4 Cup Honey
2/3 Cups Milk
1 cup Chopped Pecans
