Oven Baked Strawberry Cheesecake Oatmeal

22 February 2016

Oatmeal for breakfast is just so good for you, but I know it can get boring, especially if you are eating it as a staple. I decided to switch up my oats a little to make them a little tastier – a little more like dessert! Yum! I absolutely looove cheesecake (made the healthy way of course), so why not combine the elements of cheesecake with oats to create a breakfast dessert wonder! I especially love this recipe for large families – a great weekend slow-release energy treat that is high in protein, rich in anti-oxidants, rich in healthy fats and brilliant for keeping blood sugar levels stable throughout the day!

Serves 6 | Ready in 50 mins

Preheat Oven to 180°C


For the Oats:

1 egg

3 tbsp. coconut oil

¼ cup xylitol

½ cup cream cheese

½ cup coconut milk

½ cup unsweetened applesauce

2 tsp. vanilla extract

1 tsp. ground cinnamon

Pinch salt

3 cups old fashioned rolled oats

3 cups sliced fresh strawberries

2 tsp. baking powder

For the Cheesecake Drizzle:

4 oz. reduced fat cream cheese, softened to room temperature

3 tbsp. xylitol

1 tbsp. coconut milk

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1 tbsp. fresh lemon juice


Preheat oven to 180°C

Step 1:

Grease baking dish with olive oil cooking spray. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, coconut oil, and xylitol until the xylitol is dissolved. Add the coconut milk, cream cheese unsweetened applesauce, 2 teaspoons vanilla, cinnamon, and salt. Whisk until well combined. Stir in oats, strawberries, and baking powder.

Step 2:

Pour the oat mixture into the prepared baking dish and spread into an even layer.

Step 3:

Prepare the Cheesecake Drizzle. In a small bowl add the softened cream cheese, xylitol, coconut milk, and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Stir until well combined. This should be thin enough to slowly pour. If too thick, add more milk, or microwave for a few seconds.

Step 4:

Drizzle the cream cheese mixture back and forth (in a zig zag motion) on top of the oats. Turn the baking dish 90 degrees. Drag a butter knife back and forth (in a zig zag motion) through the oats and cream cheese making a swirl design. Bake for 40 minutes. Let it cool for at least 10 minutes before serving.
