Baked Berry Oatmeal is one of my kids favorite things to eat for breakfast. It is simple to make and you can make it ahead of time and rewarm it later. I usually make it the night before and rewarm it in the morning. It smells so good when it is baking. My kids always ask for some for dessert!

One year, I made it for breakfast on their first day back to school. It was quite the hit that year! I had made it a few times before that, but not too often. Then the next year rolled around my son came to me and asked if I could make that same oatmeal I made the year before for the first day. I continued to make it year after year. This year was no different. My kids started back to school this morning and of course I had made their favorite oatmeal! They ate over half of the pan! Just the two of them!

Baked Berry Oatmeal


2 cups of old fashion rolled oats
Pinch of salt
1 tsp. cinnamon (I use a lot more than the recipe calls for)
2 cups milk
1/3 cup maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla (I used 2)
2 tbsp butter
1 egg, lightly beaten
3 ripe bananas
1.5 cups of berries (I usually use strawberries and blueberries)

    1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
    2. Grease a 2 quart baking dish
    3. Slice bananas and layer them on the bottom
    4. Mix oats, salt, and cinnamon and layer the mixture on top of the bananas
    5. Mix milk, vanilla, syrup, butter, and egg; pour on top of the oat mixture
    6. Layer the berries on top
    7. Bake for about 35-40 minutes until the top is brown
    8. ENJOY!

My kids absolutely love this recipe! I love that it is simple and one of the healthier options for breakfast before school! I also love that it is affordable. Did you know that Dollar Tree carries frozen fruit? Yeah, me neither! That was a fun discovery!
