Yam & Oat Breakfast Casserole

Fitastic January 16, 2013

2 yams, peeled and cubed into 1 inch pieces

1 cup old fashioned oats

2 Tbsp flax meal

2 cups water

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice

1/4 cup pure maple syrup


1/2 cup chopped walnuts

2 Tbsp olive oil

1/4 cup old fashioned oats

2 Tbsp brown sugar

2 Tbsp chia seeds

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bring a large pot of water to boil over high heat. Add yam cubes and boil for 5-7 minutes, or until tender. Drain and mash.

While yams are cooking, place 1 cup oats into a microwave-safe bowl. Add water and flax meal. Microwave on high for 1-2 minutes (careful to not let it boil over). Remove from microwave and stir oatmeal into mashed yams. Stir in maple syrup, cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice.

To prepare topping, combine all ingredients in a small bowl. Mash to mix.

Place yam mixture into a 1 1/2 quart baking dish prepared with baking spray. Sprinkle topping mixture evenly onto yams. Bake for 20 minutes, then broil on high for 2 minutes (watch carefully so that topping browns but does not burn).

Remove from oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes prior to serving.
