Berry Baked Oatmeal
Loaded with fresh blueberries, blackberries, strawberries or raspberries, this healthy Baked Oatmeal recipe is an easy make-ahead breakfast that comes together in just 10 minutes!
Servings 4 people
- 2 cups old-fashioned oats
- ½ cup chopped pecans, divided
- 1 ½ teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 2 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk or other milk of choice
- ½ cup maple syrup
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon butter, melted
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- ½ teaspoon almond extract (or additional vanilla extract)
- 2 cups fresh or frozen berries, divided
- For serving: Greek yogurt, whipped cream, additional butter, additional maple syrup, additional berries, sliced banana, additional pecans
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Spray an 8-inch square baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.
In a large bowl, stir together oats, ¼ cup pecans, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder and salt. In a medium bowl, whisk together milk, maple syrup, egg, melted butter, vanilla extract and almond extract. Stir milk mixture into oat mixture.
Sprinkle 1 ½ cups berries in the bottom of the prepared dish. Pour oat mixture over top and spread to cover in an even layer. Top with remaining ½ cup berries and remaining ¼ cup of pecans.
Bake until bubbly and set, about 30-35 minutes. Let stand for 5-10 minutes. Serve with desired toppings.
- This recipe yields 4 very large servings, or 6-8 smaller servings. If you’re serving a larger crowd, I recommend doubling the ingredients and baking in a 9 x 13-inch pan. You may need to increase the baking time to 35-40 minutes.
- Use frozen berries if you don't have fresh berries on hand. You do NOT need to thaw the frozen berries before adding them to the dish.
- Instead of pecans, you can substitute with almonds, walnuts, or chopped hazelnuts.
- If you don't have pumpkin pie spice, you can substitute with cinnamon and a dash of nutmeg.
- I love the taste of almond extract in this dish, but you can substitute with additional vanilla extract if you prefer.
- For a delicious twist on this oatmeal casserole, try substituting sliced bananas, diced apples or sliced peaches for the berries.
