Recipe: Berry Baked Oatmeal

breakfasts, recipes

I love breakfast. When you think of the delicious foods we can now class as breakfast foods, I’d be happy eating them for the rest of my life! As I love breakfast so much, I try and make time to sit down and enjoy every bite, but all too often, life gets in the way and my favourite meal of the day becomes rushed. Other than quickly made smoothies or yoghurt bowls, I’d started to feel stuck in a breakfast rut. Not anymore!

This recipe satisfies the gorgeously lazy weekend breakfast ritual of baking something that smells amazing, then devouring it while drinking coffee and reading the papers. But when prepared in advance, it also makes the perfect fast, tasty and healthy breakfast you need to be able to eat in a hurry, on the go or both.


Berry Baked Oatmeal
Serves 6
Beautifully healthy, yet decadently tasty baked oatmeal for lazy weekend breakfasts and on the go week day breakfasts. Tastes like cake or pudding!
  1. 2 cups of Scottish Oats (I just use supermarket basics brand. For GF, use GF oats)
  2. 1 cup of blueberries
  3. 1 cup of raspberries
  4. 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  5. Pinch of salt
  6. 1 cup of plain or Greek style yoghurt
  7. 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk
  8. 3 large free range eggs
  9. 1 small ripe mashed banana
  10. 1/4 cup honey
  11. Flaked almonds for garnish
  12. Coconut oil or butter for greasing
  1. Pre heat your oven to 170c or 325F and liberally grease a baking dish with coconut oil or butter
  2. Combine the dry ingredients together in a bowl, including the berries
  3. Combine the wet ingredients together in a bowl including the mashed banana
  4. Mix the wet into the dry and fold together gently
  5. Pour the mixture into the greased baking dish and sprinkle with flaked almonds
  6. Bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour until golden brown on top
  7. Allow to cool for 5 minutes then serve, or cool completely then store in the fridge
  8. Enjoy!
  1. This is a mildly sweet recipe, so if you want to up the sweetness use more honey, mashed banana or add some brown sugar.

I am just in love with this recipe! I’d never tried baked oatmeal before, but when I looked at other recipes and ingredients I though it sounded right up my street. I consulted a couple of different recipes including this one and this one, before making it my own.


It’s so good it could quite easily be mistaken for a more decadent cakey pudding and served as dessert with custard (or cream, nom!). Each bite is a mixture of sweet, tart berries, with little hits of creamy banana. The recipe can very easily be amended to use different fruit. Strawberries or cherries would be incredible and an apple and cinnamon one in the autumn would be amazing!


This is fabulous fresh from the oven or warmed up in the microwave along with some cool creamy yoghurt. It has a real pudding texture, but if you leave it to cool in the fridge, it becomes more cake like and can be cut into slices that can be wrapped in foil to be eaten on the go, or stored in the freezer for a later date.


It’s absolutely jam packed with healthy ingredients including whole grain slow release carbs from the oats, protein and healthy fats from the eggs and yoghurt and antioxidants from the berries. A serving comes in under 250 calories and contains 12g of protein. A perfectly healthy way to start your day!

    Oo this look so good! X

  2. LilyLipstick

    This looks amazing! I don’t have an oven so have never tried baked oatmeal before. It looks like a dessert!

    • Laura

      Ah no oven! I can’t imagine that, I wonder if you could make a mini version in the microwave?

  3. Nicole

    This recipe looks great Laura – I can’t wait to try it! However, I am sensitive to lactose and soy products so wondered if you can recommend how I approach the recipe if I omit the yoghurt? Thanks :)

    • Laura

      I would maybe try it with full fat or light coconut milk in place of the yoghurt and almond milk, so 2 cups of that? You could also maybe try replacing the yoghurt with apple sauce (I often use baby food for that!). If you were making in the autumn, I think tinned pumpkin or mashed squash might work?

    • Pip

      A bit late on this but was wondering if you’ve tried using sheeps yoghurt? I am also lactose intolerant and it is my favourite replacement :)

      • Laura

        I’m sure that sheeps yoghurt would work fine, I haven’t tried it but I can’t see any reason why it wouldn’t :-) xxxx

  4. Amanda @ .running with spoons.

    This sounds incredible, Laura… it looks almost like some kind of coffee cake dessert! And I couldn’t agree with you more about breakfast – the best meal of the day for sure, especially when it can be enjoyed in peace.

    • Laura

      Oh I think I need to try making a version of this using coffee instead of the milk maybe? That would be so yummy!

  5. Carly

    Laura, this looks delicious, definitely bookmarking to try this :-)

  6. Emma

    I love breakfast too :) and hate having to rush it. Pancakes are my favourite “special” breakfast and I still make your choc hemp protein pancakes every now and again!
    This berry baked oatmeal reminds me of a pudding my Mum used to make when we were little- a warm berry compote topped with a fluffy sponge.

    • Laura

      Oh glad you still like those pancakes! I need to make them again, haven’t had them in ages! I was thinking of trying baked fruit topped with some kind of sponge, it just sounds so comforting!

  7. Maja

    It really looks wonderful, but for a grain-free option do you think chopped nuts (almonds, hazelnuts or walnuts) would be a good substitute for oats?

    • Laura

      I think you could give that a try – may be a mix of ground almonds and coconut flour might work?

    • Laura

      I kind of see oatmeal as the raw oats and porridge as the actual meal made with them if that makes sense? So baked oatmeal sounded more like what this was than baked porridge I think? Plus I think it’s an American thing to say oatmeal, perhaps that has snuck into my head now ;-)

  8. Jemma @ Celery and Cupcakes

    I love breakfast always! It’s my favourite meal and love leisurely breakfasts so that I can savour every bite. This looks fab!

  9. Anna @AnnaTheApple

    Yum! This looks divine! I’m sure I can even tempt Ben to this…

  10. Karina

    yummy yummy!!!

  11. Maria @ runningcupcake

    This looks lovely- it sounds a bit like the mix you would make for a bread pudding.

  12. Joy @Twelve52

    I’ve definitely been stuck in a breakfast rut lately. This is just what I need to snap myself out of it! Going to pick up the ingredients tomorrow :)

  13. claudia ellis

    I would love to try this, sounds wonderful! I wonder if you could substitute regular (rolled) oats for the scottish oats?

  14. Claudia Ellis

    Just wanted to let you know that I made this for breakfast this morning, using quick cooking oats and it turned out fabulous!!! Love it!

  15. Sheila Reeves

    This looks delicious – have porridge most days, so this would make a nice change, or have as a dessert as well
