Berry Oatmeal Breakfast Bake was originally published in August 2016. Photos and recipe were updated in June 2022.

I made this Berry Oatmeal Breakfast Bake to have for quick and easy breakfasts.  The way this breakfast bake works for me is that I prep everything and put it in the baking dish on Sunday, then cook it up on Monday morning so it is ready to go as soon as we get the girls up. We then have breakfast ready (this can be eaten hot or cold) for a few days.

Ingredients in Berry Oatmeal Breakfast Bake

Bananas: Bananas act as a natural sweetener for these muffins. They contain potassium and magnesium, which are necessary nutrients for the body.

Eggs: Eggs act as a binder in this baked oatmeal recipe. They also contain protein and many nutrients that are great for brain health and development like choline.

Peanut butter: Peanuts is filled with monounsaturated fatty acids. This is also a common food allergen, so if you are feeding this to a baby, it’s a great and easy way to introduce this allergen.

Maple syrup: Maple syrup is a natural sweetener used in this oatmeal breakfast bake.

Milk: I prefer to use unsweetened soy milk, but you can use whatever milk your family has on hand.

Avocado oil: This is a neutral cooking oil without much flavor that adds to the overall texture of this oatmeal bake. Avocado oil is also a source of healthy fats and antioxidants.

Unsweetened applesauce: Applesauce acts as a binder and also helps keep this oatmeal bake soft and moist. Applesauce is another source of antioxidants.

Vanilla extract: Vanilla extract adds a creaminess and warmth to this recipe.

Rolled oats (or quick oats): Oats can be gluten free if necessary for this recipe. They are naturally rich in a fiber called beta glucan, that is linked with healthy cholesterol levels and heart health.

Chia seeds: Chia seeds are rich in omega 3 fatty acids, which may help reduce inflammation in the body. They also contain a good amount of fiber, making them great for digestive health.

Hemp seeds: Hemp seeds are little nutrition powerhouses. They contain plant protein, healthy fats and nutrients like Vitamin E, phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, sulfur, calcium, iron and zinc.

Berries: Berries give this dish a wonderful sweetness as well as a boost of antioxidants and fiber.

How to Make Berry Oatmeal Breakfast Bake

I love prepping this recipe ahead of time. Combine all of the ingredients in a large bowl, then pour into a greased 8×8 baking dish. You can either pop it in the oven now, or when you are ready to make it! This can be served hot or cold, but I prefer it served hot.

Berry Oatmeal Breakfast Bake Tips

  • This recipe is naturally gluten free (if you use gluten free oats).
  • You can easily prep this ahead (as described above) and bake just before serving.
  • Sunflower seed butter or almond butter are easily subbed for the peanut butter in this recipe.
  • Rolled oats or quick oats work well in this recipe, but I prefer quick oats because of the texture.
  • Any berries will work in this recipe, but I typically use frozen mixed berries.
  • I like the touch of maple syrup in this recipe, but when I’m making it for Claire (9 months old) I omit the maple syrup.

  1. I have made this recipe 4 times and it always turns out perfect, and something I can grab quickly that’s nutritious! Thank you Tara for this new breakfast to add to my food prep rotation. A square plus a hard boiled egg keeps me full all morning – I don’t mind it straight from the fridge. I substituted some hemp seeds and slivered almonds for the LoveGrown mix and for the walnuts. Frozen berries also work perfectly – I like a mix of blueberry + raspberry!

  2. Hi Tara!! This looks so delicious that I want to make it ASAP–anyway I could sub regular oats for the Love Grown Super Oats? Or are they pretty essential to the recipe?

    • Hi Mary Priestly! 🙂 You can absolutely sub regular or quick-cooking oats if that is what you have on hand 🙂 Hope you enjoy!!!

  3. That oatmeal bake looks soo good!! I hate PE too! lol. Some random facts about me: I am from Nashville, TN, I have been to Europe about 8 times, I am left-handed, I dog-sit because I just loveee dogs, and I met my husband my freshman year of college. 🙂 Have a great weekend!!

    • Glad to know I wasn’t the only one to not like PE…seems a bit strange for a healthy living blogger!
