BAKED OATMEAL

This VERY BERRY Baked Oatmeal transforms ordinary oatmeal into something extraordinary! Prepared with berries and nuts, make some right now and you’ll have a ready to go delicious breakfast for the rest of the week!

Hi, friends! Can you believe it!? Just like that, Monday is back. SO dang fast!

We celebrated Easter over the weekend so you can totally understand my need for one more day in between Easter Sunday and Monday morning. All that food yesterday didn’t eat itself, you know… I need to continue to sleep it off.

Which brings me to my next point: if there was ever a time that I needed a heart-healthy, oat-berry packed dessert/breakfast/meal, today would definitely be that day. This breakfast goodness is my secret for stepping my way back into the “real world food”.

Would it be OKAY of me to just say that this baked oatmeal is THE BEST? But it’s true!

This baked oatmeal recipe is full of all kinds of goodness: from fresh berries to oats, toasty almonds, and honey.

HOW TO MAKE BAKED OATMEAL

The beauty of what’s before us is that you can basically make it however the heck you want with whatever berries and nuts you happen to have on hand. And if frozen berries is all you’ve got? No worries, those work just as well. No need to thaw.

You will also need some rolled oats, eggs, brown sugar, honey, coconut oil, and some cinnamon, and nutmeg, too.

  1. Arrange half of your berries in a baking dish.
  2. Combine oats, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and light brown sugar in a mixing bowl; add this oat mixture to the baking dish, over the berries.
  3. Prepare a milk mixture with eggs and milk plus sugar and spices; pour milk mixture over the oats.
  4. Arrange more berries on top.
  5. Sprinkle with almonds and bake for 45 minutes in a preheated 375˚F oven.

MAKE AHEAD OATMEAL

One thing totally worth mentioning is that this pretty breakfast can keep in the fridge for days in a covered container, making it possible to bring out your best morning-self even when you’re on the run and need to eat in the car. Which is something I NEVER do… ahem.

You can also prepare this the night before and slide it into the oven first thing in the (Mother’s Day) morning!

Like how I slipped that in there? P.S. Don’t forget yo’ mama this coming weekend.

    Very Delicious! Take note: if you plan to bake it after refrigerating overnight it will take at least another 20 minutes of baking! I found this out the hard way after my whole family was seated around the table, coffee’s pouedr and everyone starving…only to find out that after 50 minutes of baking it was watery and barely warm in the middle. You should have seen the looks on my kids faces when I told them they had to wait at least another 20 minutes. Lol. Otherwise this is really yummy and I’ll be making it again!

    I found this recipe because it was on the sidebar of the e-mails I get from you. I was lucky enough to have everything needed (even using my very last two cups of milk, haha) and made it this morning. It’s actually in the oven right now, and it smells so good! I can’t wait to try it.

    So, I just tried it (after letting it sit for about ten minutes), and it turned out great! I was so worried about the honey making too sweet, especially in addition to the brown sugar, but the tartness of the berries makes it so that it is not overly sweet! Now I have a delicious breakfast for the next 8 days!

    This looks delicious. Would like to bring it to my ladies bible study. Do you know how to adjust the recipe to serve 12?

    1. Katerina Petrovska

      Hi!
      Inside the recipe box where it says “Servings: 8” – click on that and a slider should appear. If you adjust that slider left or right, it will show you how much you will need for more or less servings. Let me know if this helps. Thank you!

  4. Jennifer

    Why does it say to transfer to a plastic container for storage? I have a lid for the baking pan I use, and would prefer to just cover it & refrigerate it right in the same glass pan.

    1. Katerina Petrovska

      I haven’t tried using any substitutes with this recipe, but what about chia eggs? 1 tablespoon chia seeds + 2.5 tablespoons water is one chia egg. Stir it together and let rest for 5 minutes to thicken. I hope this helps. Please let me know if you try it.

    1. Katerina Petrovska

      Hi! You can freeze it after it is baked and completely cooled off. The other way might work as well, but I’ve never tried it so I am not sure how it will turn out. Hope this helps! 🙂

    Super yummy except mine was still a bit watery after 50 minutes. Just keep cooking until it’s solid? I’m a texture person and I don’t know if it was the honey or the milk or the combo of the two, but there was a layer of gelatin-like at the bottom of my dish. Any suggestions? As I said, this was DELICIOUS- I just need some help perfecting it

    1. Katerina Petrovska

      Hi Taylor! I’m so glad you like it! Sorry about the texture thing. :-/ All ovens are a bit different, so I would suggest baking it a bit longer, but don’t burn it. 😀 The extra liquid could just be from the fruits, too. You might want to add less next time, or add more of the dry ingredients, and see if that helps, as well. 🙂

    1. Katerina Petrovska

      Hi Elizabeth! Sure! You can go ahead and use 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, instead. Though the coconut oil does add a bit to the taste. 🙂

  6. Valerie Feliz

    Hi there!
    Do you know if this would be good leftover? I’d love to make this on Monday morning and use it as breakfasts for the week if you think it would stay good!

    1. Katerina Petrovska

      Hi Valerie! Yep! You can definitely do that. That’s what I do. 🙂 Just refrigerate the leftovers and then reheat as much as you want before serving it.

    1. Katerina Petrovska

      Hi Leann!! It should say 8, but this new recipe card I am using is glitchy – some people are seeing how many servings all together, and others are only seeing the individual. Ugh. 🙁 Sorry!!

  7. Jennifer Landis

    Always on the lookout for new baked oatmeal recipes and so thrilled to find this one! I will be making this for sure!

  8. Cookin Canuck

    That is one gorgeous baked oatmeal, with all of those berries on top. I could happily eat this any day of the week.

  9. Michelle @ The Complete Savorist

    I’ve never had baked oatmeal before, but I really want to now. This breakfast looks like dessert!!!

  10. Lora @savoringitaly

    Happy Easter to you and your sweet family, my dear. This baked oatmeal is just the bomb! I seriously will show my daughter and expect them to make this for me this weekend!!
