Sweet and savory Fresh Fig and Goat Cheese baked oatmeal.

Not all baked oatmeal has to be sweet right? A baked oatmeal is basically a bread pudding with oats instead of bread, and bread pudding can be sweet or savory. But how about a sweet AND savory baked oatmeal?

I saw the fresh figs at the store, grabbed some goat cheese and went for it. We all loved the product. This time I also snuck in some healthy fats from flax seed meal and almond meal.


  • 1 1/4 cup rolled oats (100 g)
  • 1 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk (360 g)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup flax seed meal (26 g)
  • 1/4 cup almond meal (28 g)
  • 1 tbsp coconut sugar (12 g)
  • 350 g fresh figs
  • 3 oz goat cheese

Makes 6 servings. Preheat oven to 350F and grease a jumbo muffin pan (I have not tried using a baking dish but an 8×8 would probably be the right size). Mix all wet ingredients and let flax seed meal sit in the mixture for 10 minutes. Add the rest of the dry ingredients except cheese, transfer to muffin pan and top with the cheese. Bake 30 minutes until the edges are firm. Let the oatmeal cups cool completely in the pan before trying to remove (they will firm up and become much easier to handle). Serve immediately and store any leftovers in the fridge.

Hope you enjoy this recipe! And remember to tag @200isplentysweet on Instagram!

Hi I'm Elif! I'm a mama, computer science PhD and Google engineer by day, food blogger by night. I love beautiful desserts that not only taste amazing, but also leave you feeling amazing. I use my math skills and interest in nutrition to carefully optimize my recipes to use simple, good-for-you ingredients and minimal amount of added sugar. I believe that healthy desserts can be simple. Recipes should not send you searching for rare ingredients, untested sweeteners or measuring ridiculous 1/2 tsp of butter. Here we use few ingredients, basic measuring cups, spoons, and simple fruit, veg, little sugar and syrup as sweeteners. Most recipes here use so little added sugar that they're good enough for toddlers. I also believe that you should be able to fit healthy sweets into your daily routine. No matter how much almond flour and coconut oil is in a healthy dessert recipe, there's no way I'm going to ingest a meal's worth of energy and a day's worth of total sugar from dessert alone. And that is the reason all my desserts have less than 200 cal per serving and are low-sugar. So now will you join us?
