Berry Oatmeal Bake
Hi everyone! Looking for an easy recipe for breakfast? Then you are in the perfect place! Introducing my baked oatmeal recipe! It’s a meal prep recipe that you can enjoy hot or cold throughout the week!
Oatmeal can be described as a type of coarse flour that is made from the outer layer of oat grains. It has been either milled, rolled, or steel-cut.
Berries, on the other hand, are the small, pulpy, and sometimes edible fruit that are juicy, round, and brightly colored. They also tend to have good nutritional value. They have a high content of Vitamin C, fiber, and antioxidant polyphenols.
Baking oatmeal is very simple. All you need to do is to combine and mix all ingredients in a single bowl and place it in the oven. Then, after a few minutes, voila! A freshly baked and nutritious breakfast or quick snack is ready! You can also pair this with some delicious Greek yogurt or whey protein shake.
This oatmeal bake is made of wholesome ingredients — oats, fresh berries, maple syrup, nuts, and spices. It makes it rich in protein, fiber, and antioxidants, helping our bodies fight against free radicals that cause illnesses.
In this recipe, I use almond milk instead of the regular ones because it is naturally richer in several minerals and vitamins, especially Vitamin E. This is great for those who want to lose weight.
Remember to check out also other substitutions that you can make to your oatmeal recipes to meet your specific needs and wellness goals.

Ingredients for 8 servings:
- 3 cups frozen (or fresh) berries
- I used 1 1/2 cup frozen blueberries and 1 1/2 cup frozen raspberries
- 2 whole eggs
- 2 cups unsweetened almond milk (or your preferred low fat or non-dairy milk)
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoons flax oil (or melted coconut oil)
- 2 cups uncooked rolled oats
- 1/2 cup chopped pecans (or your choice of nut)
- 3 tablespoons Swerve sugar replacement
- Substitutions: 1 tablespoon Stevia in the raw; 1/4 cup coconut sugar; 1/8 cup raw cane sugar
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon allspice
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 2 teaspoons turmeric* (optional)
- Greek yogurt
Set oven to 400F.
In a bowl, mix together the dry ingredients. Set aside.
In another bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients.
Spray a baking dish or cast iron skillet with baking spray. Add about half of the berries to the skillet. Scatter them around the baking dish or skillet.
Pour the dry mixture over the berries and use a spatula to ensure the dry mixture is spread evenly throughout the pan.
Pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredients and tap the baking dish or skillet to ensure the wet ingredients completely cover the dry ingredients. Use a spatula to lightly pat down areas where the dry ingredients are not covered by the wet ingredients. Then add the rest of the frozen berries on top.
Place in the oven and bake for 30 minutes or until you can pierce it with a toothpick and it comes out clean (minus the berries), and the edges and top of the bake are golden brown.
Allow it to cool before slicing. Garnish and enjoy with a moderate serving of Greek yogurt or your favorite lean protein shake.
