This breakfast recipe is such a refreshing twist to the usual oatmeal recipes you might have been trying in the past. Instead of buying those store-bought oatmeal bars that are high in sugar and that contain a few dubious ingredients, why not make this recipe and have it ready for your morning breakfast!
This is a perfect recipe for a Meatless Mondays feature. Since this recipe doesn’t content any protein, I’d highly suggest that you add a handful of nuts of your choice to your breakfast to make it a complete meal!

2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 cups nonfat milk
1 large egg, beaten
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 2 inch piece vanilla bean, split lengthwise
1/3 cup orange marmalade
1/2 cup orange confit, chopped
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
In a medium bowl, combine the oats, sugar, salt and baking powder.
In a separate bowl, combine the milk, egg, melted butter and vanilla extract. Scrape the seeds of the vanilla bean into the egg mixture and reserve the bean for future use.
Stir the oat and milk mixtures together. When combined fold in the chopped orange confit or marmalade. Pour mixture into a medium sized pan.
Bake for 30-35 minutes or until oatmeal has developed a nice crust and is lightly brown around the edges. Serve warm.
