The natural aphrodisiac in this recipe? The pomegranate! Pomegranates are packed with antioxidants, which protect the lining of blood vessels and allow more blood to course through them.
Maple Baked Oatmeal with Pomegranate
2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 cup maple syrup
2 cups milk of choice (check out this post on which milk is best!)
1 tbs unsalted butter, melted
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt
2 tsp brown sugar
Pomegranate seeds for topping
Additional maple syrup for serving
Preheat oven to 350. In a bowl, combine milk, egg, butter, and maple syrup. Whisk gently until evenly incorporated. In a separate bowl, combine oats, walnuts, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Pour wet mix into dry mix and mix thoroughly until oats have absorbed most of the liquid.
Divide evenly between two greased ramekins. Top each with 1 tsp brown sugar and bake for 30 minutes, or until top has browned slightly. Serve warm, and top with pomegranate and maple syrup.
