Goji Berry and Coconut Oatmeal Bake

I have an abundance of goji berries right now.  I accidently grabbed the goji berry bag at the grocery store, instead of the mulberries.  I didn’t notice until I came home and found the exact same bag in my pantry.  So, here’s a Goji Berry and Coconut Oatmeal recipe.  If you don’t have goji berries, substitute any other dried fruit — cranberries, blueberries, diced apricots, or even raisins.

This healthy baked oatmeal smells divine as it bakes up — a perfect comfort food breakfast for a wintry morning.  It’s great for brunch or a crowd of people too, just double the recipe.  Bake it up the night before; then just reheat in the morning.  Or, use it throughout the week, reheating portions as needed.  It’s also great for on-the-go, since they slice easily into squares.

Tuesday Tip!  Make Ahead Dried Beans

Dried beans are less expensive than canned beans, but canned beans have the convenience of being ready to eat in minutes.  It’s not that canned beans themselves are expensive, but they do usually cost more than dried.  Also, canned beans do not come in the great many varieties one can find dried.
