  • 2 ¼ cup water
  • 1 ½ cup rolled oats
  • ¼ tsp sea salt


  • 2 large eggs
  • cup milk of your choice
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup or honey
  • dash sea salt
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • ½ tsp cinnamon



  • Bring the water and salt to a boil in a medium saucepan.
  • Stir in the oats.
  • Cook, uncovered, until the oats are done and the water has completely evaporated, about 5-7 minutes.
  • Pour the cooked oatmeal into an oiled 8 x 8 baking dish.
  • Put the dish into the fridge, UNCOVERED, for at least 2 hours until set and firm to the touch. I usually do this step the night before and leave it in the fridge, uncovered, until morning.


  • When ready to make, preheat oven to 375 degrees. 
  • Mix the custard ingredients.
  • Pour the custard mix into shallow dish, such as a pie plate.
  • Cut the chilled oatmeal into nine equal squares.
  • Dip oatmeal squares into custard mixture, allow to soak for 30 seconds on each side.
  • Over medium-low heat, melt 1 tablespoon of butter or coconut oil in a non-stick pan. 
  • Place 2-3 slices of oatmeal 'bread' at a time into the pan and cook until golden brown, approximately 2 to 3 minutes per side. 
  • Remove from pan and place on a baking sheet and into the oven for 5-10 minutes. 
  • Repeat with all squares.
  • Serve immediately with maple syrup or your favorite topping.
