While berries are the name of the game in this baked oatmeal with fruit recipe you can easily make this recipe your own using any stone fruit, apples, bananas or any combo of the above you desire.

You really can’t go wrong! This is in my opinion the best baked oatmeal recipe. So good you could even serve as a dessert and no one would know it is a breakfast recipe. It is THAT good! Maybe add a little ice cream instead for a dessert option.

This recipe for baked fruit oatmeal takes about 45 minutes end to end to make but makes enough for 4-6 breakfasts and heats up amazingly well. Here is what you need:

Ingredients & Substitutions

  • Berries – Strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and blackberries make this recipe so great. You can use just one of these summer berries or a combination of them for a very berry experience. But, if you aren’t a fan of berries or are just looking for something new apples, peaches and bananas work just as well! Fresh or frozen berries work.
  • Old-Fashioned Rolled Oats – Oats that have been steamed and rolled flat. They cook faster than steel-cut oats but still maintain a softer slightly chewier texture than instant oats. For more info on different cuts of oats check this article out from the Whole Grains Council.
  • Maple Syrup – Adds a little sweetness. Honey is also a great substitution.
  • Unsweetened Almond Milk – Used to cook and soften the oatmeal while baking and adds a subtle nuttiness to this recipe. Coconut or regular milk can also be used.
  • Egg – A binding agent that holds all this wonderful fruit and oatmeal together.
  • Unsalted ButterMakes everything better and works to add moisture and flavour.

How To Make This Berry Oatmeal Bake

There really isn’t much to this healthy baked oatmeal at all and you really can’t mess it up. Just one bowl and a baking dish are all the dishes you need. The less mess the better!

  1. Start by preheating your oven to 350°F and lightly grease 8″ square baking dish.
  2. Measure about 3 cups or 16 oz of berries and add 2 cups to the bottom of the baking dish evenly.
  1. In a medium bowl, add one cup of old-fashioned rolled oats, 1/2 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp cinnamon and a pinch of salt. Mix and then sprinkle the oat mixture evenly over the layer of fruit.
  2. Using the same bowl, add 1 egg, 1 cup unsweetened almond milk, 1/4 cup maple syrup, 2 tbsp melted butter, 1 tsp vanilla. Beat to mix well.

  1. Pour the egg and milk mixture over the berries and oats and give the baking dish a little wiggle so that the liquid mixture can work its way through the oatmeal.
  2. Add the remaining berries to the top of the oat mixture evenly and then place in the oven for 35-40 minutes to bake. Bake until the oatmeal has firmed up and is starting to turn a light golden brown. The oatmeal will firm up when baked and no longer be liquidy.

Remove the baked berry oatmeal and serve warm.

Variations:

  • Add chopped walnuts or pecans to the top or even slivered almonds for a little added crunch.
  • Swap the berries for almost any fruit, peaches, apples, bananas and blueberries all work great.

  • Go gluten-free by using gluten-free oats and almond flour in the topping.

Storage and Freezing:

Store any leftovers in a tightly sealed container for up for 3 days.

  1. This baked berry oatmeal recipe sounds absolutely delightful. Your detailed explanation and personal touch make it even more inviting. Thank you for sharing such a versatile and wholesome breakfast idea.

  2. 5 stars
    I had heaps of not-very-sweet berries that I wanted to use, but I didn’t want to make a pie or jam because I don’t need all the sweets. This was the perfect solution! I had a quick, easy breakfast for weekday mornings. Good and good for you!

    1. Hi Roberta, one serving is a quarter of this recipe or about 1 cup. I am not familiar with WW points so can not advise on this.

  3. Delicious! My first time making and trying baked oatmeal and I’m hooked. The only changes I made were to omit the vanilla and use only 2 Tbsp of maple syrup because I used vanilla oat milk instead of the plain unsweetened almond.

  4. 4 stars
    Hi. Just finished having your baked porridge for breakfast and it was lovely. I used semi skimmed milk and seriously reduced the maple syrup but thats because I’m scottish. I’m used to having porridge made with water with a pinch of salt.

    1. Hi Joey, My apologies. There is no need to divide the oats so I have edited the recipe card to correct this. Sorry for the inconvenience but thank you for letting me know.

  5. 5 stars
    WOW….this looks delicious. Perfect for brunch on the weekend. Great for easy morning breakfasts too.

  6. Oh yum!! This looks like such a delicious breakfast recipe! Seriously can’t want to make this over the weekend!
