After you guys have loved my beetroot hummus, and my Moroccan beet salad I felt like adding another amazing pretty pink recipe that is just perfect for Valentine’s Day! Just look at the vibrant color.
This healthy breakfast oatmeal bake is high in protein thanks to added protein powder and is truly comforting. It’s such a delicious, oh-so-satisfying breakfast and with that pink color it is a great way to start the day on a colorful note.

Did you know that Beets can lower blood pressure significantly? They also contain blood-vessel-friendly nitric oxide which helps to relax and dilate your blood vessels. It also vastly improves blood flow and lowers blood pressure.
While we could just dye our oatmeal bake with beet powder, I prefer to use whole beets here as I like to bake a whole batch and use them for different recipes.
And on to the oatmeal – I mean, I really cannot stress the benefits of starting your day with oatmeal – be it in overnight oats or porridge!
I also add a pinch of Cinnamon, which is not just a flavor enhancer but also a natural blood sugar regulator. Did you know as little as 1/2 tsp cinnamon daily can have positive effects on blood sugar levels, digestion, immunity, and more?
You can enjoy this beet oatmeal bake as is but I added a Greek yogurt drizzle on top. You could also serve this drizzled with your favorite nut butter.

In a blender puree the peeled cooked or roasted beet with milk, coconut oil, egg, and vanilla.
Add that pink milk mixture to the dry oat mixture, and stir well.
Pour the oatmeal mixture into the prepared pan, sprinkle with cocoa nibs or dairy-free chocolate chips and bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until the oatmeal is set and golden brown.
