Blueberry & Raspberry Baked Oatmeal

I'm the type that would be fine just skipping breakfast. But, that's not supposed to be healthy plus my vitamins seem to set better if I eat something. But what? Sometimes I just eat a piece of whole wheat toast, or maybe a banana. I like cold cereal but not in the morning, I like to eat that at night. lol 

I am a fan of oatmeal, not that instant stuff, but real oatmeal. But only when the weather is cold and its not cold here yet. I still had blueberries in the freezer from my berry picking this summer (story here), so I went searching for a breakfast recipe using oatmeal and blueberries.

I found the following recipe from It sounded delicious with oatmeal, blueberries or raspberries, walnuts, and even a little maple syrup. I also liked that it could be put in the refrigerator to provide breakfast all week. Just heat in the microwave for a warm and healthy breakfast. Only about 200 calories too if you use skim milk and sugar free syrup. I decided to give it a try.

Preheat oven and assemble the ingredients.

Grease the baking dish

Mix the dry ingredients

Mix the wet ingredients

Evenly spread sliced bananas and 1/2 of the berries in the bottom of the baking pan.

Sprinkle the oat mixture on top of the fruit. Note: the spices will tend to settle to the bottom so be careful not to dump out the last of the dry ingredients in one spot.

Pour the wet ingredients evenly over the oat mixture.

Top with remaining berries and nuts.

Bake, BTW this is going to smell great while cooking.

Now eat and enjoy a warm healthy breakfast! Mummm


1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1/4 cup chopped walnuts, divided
1/2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
Pinch of salt
1/4 cup maple syrup (can use sugar free)
1 cup milk
1 large egg, lightly beaten
2 tbsp. unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2-3 ripe bananas, peeled and sliced
1 cup blueberries or raspberries, fresh or frozen, divided


1. Preheat the oven to 375F.
2. Lightly grease a 2-quart baking dish. In a medium bowl, mix the oats, half of the walnuts, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Stir to combine. In a liquid measuring cup, combine the syrup, milk, egg, butter, and vanilla.
3. Spread the sliced bananas in a single layer over the bottom of the baking dish. Top with half of the berries. Sprinkle the dry oat mixture over the fruit in an even layer. Pour the liquid ingredients evenly over the oats.
4. Sprinkle the remaining nuts and berries over the top. Bake for 35-40 minutes, until the top is browned and the oats have set. Let cool 10 minutes before serving.
