Fall is in the air and I’m feeling the need to bake up some cozy warming foods. If you are anything like me you are not a fan of cooking in the morning. I just want to get up, do my thing, grab a quick and predictable breakfast (I eat the same thing every day), nourish my body and move on with my day. I don’t want to cook for myself or anybody else in the morning.
This baked oatmeal takes the thinking out of the morning and is a gift to your body. You and anybody else you are cooking for will be thankful. I make this while I’m cleaning up from dinner, bake it and then throw it in the fridge and warm it a bit in the morning (or eat it cold or room temp) and, voila…breakfast. And, btw, it is fabulous for lunch too or dessert! I love it served with a splash of almond milk (or dairy milk) mixed through it.
In the fall when I’m still craving the summer I make it with frozen berries but in the heat of the summer, this is so luxurious made with fresh peaches and nectarines. Enjoy my beauties and have a beautiful week.
Everyday Berry Baked Oatmeal
The Dry Ingredients
- 1 cup rolled oats (large flake) I like these
- ½ cup toasted chopped walnuts optional
- ½ tsp baking powder
- ½-1 tsp cinnamon
- ¼ tsp salt
The Wet Ingredients
- 1 cup milk I use unsweetened almond milk, I like this kind
- 3 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 egg
- 1-2 tbsp ghee, butter or melted coconut oil more to grease the pan
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 ripe bananas cut into slices
- 2 cups frozen berries, any kind or mixed berries I like this kind
- About ¼ cup unsweetened shredded coconut
- Heat oven to 375˚F.
- Grease the bottom and sides of an 8*8 pyrex, 12-inch cast iron pan or something similar in size (if you are using a cast iron pan you can melt a little butter or coconut oil right in the pan on the stovetop). NOTE: I show pictured here two different recipes, one in a small oven dish (a single recipe) and them one in a larger container (a double recipe).
- In a medium size bowl, mix together The Dry Ingredients.
- In a separate bowl mix together The Wet Ingredients.
- Spread the banana slices across the bottom of the prepared baking dish.
- Sprinkle half the berries on top.
- Sprinkle The Dry Ingredients over the bananas and berries and then evenly pour The Wet Ingredients on top, shake the dish a little so that everything settles. Scatter the remaining berries on top and sprinkle with coconut.
- Bake for 35-45 minutes.Serve warm, cooled or even reheated. My kids like this dished out into small mason jars so they can grab this and go.
