Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF and spray a single-serving ramekin with non-stick spray.
  2. Puree all ingredients for the oatmeal together in a food processor. If it's too dry, add more milk one teaspoon at a time until it reaches a nice batter consistency. If it's too watery, add a little bit of oats. (It should not be as thick as cookie dough).
  3. Transfer mixture to prepared ramekin. Transfer to the ramekin and bake for 22-25 minutes, or until it no longer looks “wet” on top.
  4. While the oatmeal is baking prepare the frosting: dump all ingredients in a small food processor or blend with an immersion blender (that is what I did). Taste and adjust sweetener as you see necessary.
  5. After the oatmeal is out of the oven and has cooled, top with frosting (if you put the frosting on too early, it will melt…and not in a good way). You can either spread it on, or you can “pipe” it like traditional frosting. If you don’t have a piping bag, put it in a Ziplock bag and cut off one corner on the bottom–pipe away!
