Everyday Berry Baked Oatmeal

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

Servings 6


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

The Fruit

  • 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.
