Baked Berries with Oatmeal

A few days ago, I was having a conversation recently with our followers on our Facebook page about fall flavors and it turned into a discussion about why we associate certain seasons with certain flavors and foods.

It has only been in recent years that things like fresh strawberries and blueberries are in grocery stores year around. While I do love making and enjoying things in season when I get a craving for dishes with fresh berries it is so nice to be able to find them regardless of time and year and location.

That being said berries are a mainstay in my refrigerator. The other day I had a few things that needed to be used up and baked oatmeal is the perfect way to make sure those berries didn’t go to waste.

This oatmeal recipe isn’t overly sweet and it allows the bright flavors of the berries to shine through.

Baked oatmeal is one of those breakfast dishes I don’t like to oversweeten before making. It is easy to take the sweetness up a notch by topping it with honey or maple syrup when you serve it – if the finished oatmeal needs to be sweetened at all.

Oatmeal is one of my children’s favorite breakfasts and we’ve gathered a huge collection of great oatmeal recipes over the past few years.

My youngest son loves oatmeal so much, there was a phase where he attempted to order it at almost every restaurant we visited.

There was nothing quite like watching the waiter’s face when he requested, “A big bowl of oatmeal, please,” while we are dining at a Mexican restaurant. Luckily, he loves chips and salsa almost as much, so it was easy to distract him.

Oatmeal is one of our go-to meals that we enjoy weekly. It is so easy to make whether it is crock-pot, oven, and stovetop oatmeal is the perfect breakfast.

Ingredients 

  • cups old fashioned oats
  • cup brown sugar

  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger optional
  • ¼ cup melted butter
  • 3 eggs
  • cup milk
  • ¾ cup chopped strawberries about ½" pieces
  • ½ cup raspberries
  • ½ cup blueberries
  • ½ cup sliced almonds optional

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a 9×13 pan with butter. Stir together the oats, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and ginger in a large mixing bowl.

Notes

The brown sugar can be increased to cup for additional sweetness. I like the recipe as it is written, as it isn’t very sweet at all. If you prefer your oatmeal a bit sweeter, go ahead and double the listed amount.
Honey may also be substituted for the brown sugar in this recipe.
FREEZER MEAL: Let the oatmeal cool completely and then cut or scoop into portions. Store the oatmeal in airtight freezer safe bags or containers. Reheat in the microwave with a tablespoon of water.

    This looks incredible! I don't eat oatmeal due to texture issues, but this looks like something I would be able to eat. Could you use frozen fruit, and how well does it keep if you don't it eat it all in one day?

    • Mary says

      Frozen fruit works great, just add an extra minute or two to the baking time. Baked oatmeal keeps well in the refrigerator for 2-3 days, or in an airtight container in the freezer for a couple months.

  2. Angie Wilkerson says

    I just made this and it was incredible! I cut recipe in half and used smaller pan. I used all cinnamon because I was out of ginger. I prefer sweeter oatmeal so I put brown sugar on top of it after getting it out of oven. To my daughters bowl, I added some extra milk so she could chew it better since she is used to more creamy texture. I will definitely make this again!

  3. Sharon Seliskar says

    Can you prepare this and refrigerate overnight and bake in the morning? Also want to add brown sugar instead of honey. Do I add another 1/4 cup of milk? Going to try it so I hope it comes out OK.

    • Mary Younkin says

      Sharon – I have never made this ahead because it really is simple to put together. That being said a little more milk is likely a good idea. If you are going from refrigerator to oven you might need to add to the cooking time a bit as well. Good luck and do let us know how it turns out.

    • Brenda says

      Sharon my suggestion would be to prep everything the night before. Dry ingredients in one bowl, cover it and the wet ingredients mixed together in a bowl, cover and put in fridge, just need to melt the butter in the AM and add to the wet ingredients. In the morning your all ready to mix everything together while the oven is warming.
      The only thing I changed I added a teaspoon of Vanilla extract. This so Yummy.
