Ingredients
  

Cream Cheese Icing

  • 1 oz light cream cheese softened
  • 2 tablespoon unsalted butter softened
  • cup powdered sugar sifted
  • 1 tablespoon milk or cream

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 375° F. Grease an 8x8-inch baking dish with cooking spray, set aside.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, vanilla extract, and coconut oil. *If using maple syrup instead of brown sugar, add it here. 
  • In a large bowl, mix the oats, baking powder, salt, brown sugar, ground cinnamon, and ground nutmeg.
  • Add the wet ingredients into the oat mixture and stir to combine. *If using nuts, add them here.
  • Carefully pour the mixture into the prepared dish. Bake for 35 - 40 minutes until the top of the oatmeal is golden brown and the oatmeal is set. Allow the oatmeal to cool slightly before adding icing. 
  • Make the Cream Cheese Icing: With an electric mixer, beat the softened cream cheese and butter until fluffy. Carefully add the sugar. Beat until combined. Then add the cream or milk, mix until combined. 
  • Garnish the whole tray of oatmeal all at once or store the icing in the refrigerator and pipe each serving individually, as desired.

Notes

Variations
  • To Lower the Sugar Content - Use stevia or monk fruit sweetener in place of the brown sugar in the oatmeal. For the cream cheese icing, use a keto powdered sugar like this sugar-free monk fruit sweetener.
  • Enjoy without the cream cheese icing. Serve with maple syrup instead. 
Storing, Freezing, and Reheating
  • STORE - Cover the pan in foil or store slices in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
  • FREEZE -  Portion out the baked oatmeal into {6} slices. Wrap slices individually or transfer to a freezer-safe container (or zip-top bag). Freeze for up to 3 months. *For best results, freeze without the icing. Thaw the oatmeal completely and then frost with the cream cheese icing.
  • REHEAT - Place a slice of baked oatmeal onto a microwave-safe dish. Cover and heat for 45 seconds - one minute. Serve warm.
