Any fruit baked oatmeal is a basic baked oatmeal base that you can use any fruit you’d like in it! I had some raspberries and blackberries that needed to be used up so that’s what I chose, but you can choose whatever you want! Berries, apples, peaches, plums, cherries, raisins, dates, etc. You could even throw in some nuts or chocolate chips. Make it yours! Simple, easy, and a great nourishing breakfast to keep you fueled and happy in the morning!
What is baked oatmeal?
Baked oatmeal is oatmeal baked in a pan making breakfast incredibly easy. You can make it ahead so that all you have to do is warm it in the morning or eat it straight from the fridge (which I often do)! It’s a great simple breakfast or snack option. It tastes like dessert and it’s just so delicious!
What you need to make any fruit baked oatmeal + substitutions:
- Quick oats- I love using quick oats, because it gives it the best texture! This is my absolute favorite way to make baked oatmeal, it gives it a dense brownie-like texture. You can substitute with rolled oats, which will make it a little more chewy/ crumbly, but still fabulous!! Steel cut oats won’t work for this one.
- Cashew milk- You can definitely substitute with almond milk, dairy milk, whatever milk. Doesn’t make a difference!
- Maple syrup– Maple syrup is my preferred sweetener but you can also use honey or brown sugar.
- Greek yogurt- I prefer using plain greek yogurt, like Fage 5% or 2%, but you can also substitute with dairy-free if needed. You could also try substituting with melted coconut oil or neutral oil. I haven’t tested it myself, but it should still work if you need dairy-free!
- Eggs- The eggs helps bind the recipe. You could substitute with flax or chia eggs.
- Baking powder- Baking powder helps the oatmeal to rise.
- Vanilla extract- A key to any baked good in my opinion!
- Sea salt- I don’t bake anything without salt. It’s what helps bring the flavor out in a recipe.
- Fruit: I used raspberries and blackberries this time because I needed to use them up! The beauty of this recipe is you can literally do ANY fruit you’d like! Berries, apples, pear, raisins, dates, etc!
Tips for making it:
- Quick oats vs rolled oats- Like I said above, quick oats will give it a denser, more brownie-like texture and is what I prefer.
- For the best texture- You want to make sure the oatmeal is still soft in the center but cooked through. That way it comes out soft rather than a hard!
- You can make this recipe in a single pan or into 12 regular sized muffin cups. I’d use either a size like 9×9, 11×7 but nothing much bigger! Just adjust your cook time!
