Very Berry Baked Oatmeal

Berry baked oatmeal is delicious and brimming with ripe berries. Make this recipe for the week ahead and warm up for a quick and easy breakfast that will have you looking forward to the morning rush!

While berries are the name of the game in this scrumptious baked oatmeal 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 recipe is 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 for a dessert option.

I am a huge breakfast fan but if I don’t have breakfast options made ahead of time I tend to dive into a bowl of cereal. Not that there is anything wrong with cereal but for the most part they offer little nutritional value and I end up being hungry an hour later. Or rather hangry because I am in the middle of work to be interrupted by my growling stomach. And always at the worst time.

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

INGREDIENTS AND SUBSTITUTIONS

  • Berries – Strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and blackberries make this recipe great and 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! Plus when berries aren’t in season frozen fruit works just as well.
  • 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 good the oatmeal 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.
  • Vanilla
  • Ground Cinnamon
  • Baking Powder
  • Salt

how to make very berry baked oatmeal

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!

Start by preheating your oven to 350 F and lightly grease a 2-quart baking dish. I have also used an 8 X 8 glass dish and which works just as well.

Measure about 2 cups or 16 oz of berries and 3/4 of them to the bottom of the baking dish evenly.

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. In 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.

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 it’s way through the oatmeal.

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 and serve warm.

If making ahead just warm it up in the microwave for about 30-40 seconds before eating.

  1. 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.

  2. 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.
