Ingredients

Baked oatmeal

  • 1 Tbsp (7 g)
    ground flaxseeds
  • 3 Tbsp (45 mL)
    water
  • 2
    ripe bananas
  • 1½ cups (360 mL)
    unsweetened soy milk
  • 1 tsp (5 mL)
  • 2 cups (162 g)
  • 2 tsp (5 g)
    ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp (3 g)
    baking powder
  • ½ tsp
    salt
  • ⅓ cup (33 g)
    raw pecans, chopped
  • ¾ cup (112 g)
    fresh blueberries
  • ¾ cup (114 g)
    fresh strawberries, sliced (optional)

Toppings

  • 1 cup (150 g)
    fresh mixed berries
  • 1 cup (240 mL)
    unsweetened soy yogurt
  • ⅓ cup (80 mL)

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C) and lightly grease a 9 x 12 inch (23 x 31 cm) baking dish.
  2. To a large bowl, add the flaxseeds and water. Mix and let rest for about 5 minutes to gel.
  3. To the large bowl, add the bananas and mash well. Then add the milk and vanilla, and stir to combine.
  4. Then add all the oats, cinnamon, baking powder, salt, and pecans. Mix.
  5. Gently fold in the blueberries and strawberries.
  6. Pour the mixture into the baking dish, and spread it out evenly. If desired, decorate the top with some more strawberry slices, blueberries, and raw pecans. Bake on the centre rack of the oven for 35 - 40 minutes, or until firm and lightly golden on the top.
  7. When removed from the oven, allow it to cool for a few minutes before slicing. Add desired toppings, and enjoy!

Halliday - Oct. 20, 2022, 11:38 a.m.

I would really like to try this! How long would you have to bake a single serve portion? Or how would you adjust the recipe for a single serve portion?

PUL Team - Oct. 21, 2022, 5:19 a.m.

Hey Halliday, you can reduce the serving size to "1" for reduced ingredient portions. We imagine that it might take 8-12 minutes. Keeping a close eye on the recipe would be best since ovens tend to vary. We hope you enjoy the recipe if you're able to give it a try 🙂

Halliday - Oct. 22, 2022, 9:22 a.m.

Thank you! I will try it out soon!
Also just wanted to say I've kind of fallen in love with Pick Up Limes over the past year. I live in the Netherlands and I'm not fully plant-based, but your recipes look so tasty and beautiful that I can't help wanting to try them out. I genuinly love eating healthy, although I tend to eat too little sometimes, so your articles are helpful as well. Thank you!

PUL Team - Oct. 23, 2022, 5:54 p.m.

Aw thank you for the very kind words, Halliday! Happy cooking 💛


Lola - Oct. 10, 2022, 10:18 a.m.

This is amazing! I was wondering if it would work with oat flour?

PUL Team - Oct. 10, 2022, 7:36 p.m.

Hey Lola, the oats add a lot of bulk to this recipe so we'd recommend oats for the texture if possible. If you do give oat flour a try the recipe may need some adjusting. For example, if the mixture seems too crumbly you may need more oat flour, ground flaxseed, or banana 🙂


Martina - July 20, 2022, 7:20 p.m.

My alltime favorite breakfast, when there are ripe bananas on hand!
Easy to make and delicious and you can store them in the freezer for busy mornings.

PUL Team - July 21, 2022, 6:17 a.m.

So glad it's being enjoyed, Martina, this is a lovely one for busy mornings!


Monarae M - June 19, 2022, 8:25 p.m.

Wow! This was wonderful! I felt like I was having dessert for breakfast - but without the guilt!
While I prefer to follow a recipe verbatim the first time I make it, however all I had was ancient grains & rolled oats mix plus I was shy 1/4-cup of rolled oats. All I had on hand was quinoa. So, I rinsed those and added it to the batter. The result came out nearly perfect. I say 'nearly' because I think if I were to make the same substitute again, I would soak (then drain) the quinoa for 10 minutes before adding it the mix.
Definitely a keeper recipe! Thanks PUL❣️

PUL Team - June 22, 2022, 3:30 p.m.

Ooo thanks for the insight, Monarae, it's so appreciated! We're so happy to hear the baked oatmeal was enjoyed 😃


June - June 13, 2022, 6:08 p.m.

Made this twice while visiting my mom. First time exactly like the recipe. Delicious!!! The 2nd time I switched out the blueberries with fresh peaches and sprinkled the top with mini chocolate chips. Again, delicious. I froze several packets for my mom so she could have pre made breakfasts or even desserts! She liked hers with a little "milk" poured over and some maple syrup. My husband and I liked it with a dollop of coconut yogurt and some maple syrup. Thanks for a wonderful recipe!

PUL Team - June 16, 2022, 1:58 a.m.

Mmm all of these variations sound delicious! We appreciate the glowing review so much, June 💛


Erica - June 9, 2022, 5:47 p.m.

I am a lover of breakfast and this one ticks all the boxes! I love that this recipe is freezer friendly so I can quickly reheat it in the morning for a quick and satisfying start to my day!

PUL Team - June 10, 2022, 7:52 p.m.

Oh it means so much, Erica! It's one of our favorites ✨


Jordan - June 7, 2022, 1:01 a.m.

This was just what I needed on this dreary winter morning in Melbourne! So delicious! You guys nail it absolutely every time, thank you ☺️

PUL Team - June 7, 2022, 5:27 a.m.

Oh so lovely to hear, Jordan, thank YOU!


Marta (from Poland) - May 3, 2022, 6:55 a.m.

The best baked oatmeal! Perfect for breakfast. Thank your for recipe ♥️

Marta - May 3, 2022, 7:10 a.m.

*Thank you 🙃

PUL Team - May 4, 2022, 7:19 a.m.

A huge compliment, Marta! Hugs to Poland 🤗


Jane - April 14, 2022, 2:12 a.m.

Just made this, and it's to die for!! I used quinoa flakes, brown rice flakes and 1/2 cup oats( all I had)+ raisins and coconut on top.
Definitely be one of our brekkie staples.
As a fairly recent plant based / vegan eater I'm loving your recipes😍

PUL Team - April 14, 2022, 7:48 a.m.

Mmm sounds lovely, Jane! We're so honoured PUL can be part of your plant-based journey 🌱


Tryinghealthy - March 23, 2022, 9:39 p.m.

Thank you for your recipe! It is the best thing ever and it is a great healthy alternative for sweet cravings!
I used black forest fruits and almonds and it tastes delicious!

PUL Team - March 24, 2022, 2:58 p.m.

So glad it's being enjoyed! Thank you 😃


I'Asia Lovelace - Feb. 23, 2022, 5:51 p.m.

In loveeeee, taste like an oatmeal cookie cake 😋

PUL Team - Feb. 24, 2022, 9:27 p.m.

So glad it's being enjoyed, I'Asia!


Lela Anderson - Feb. 10, 2022, 9:18 p.m.

This was delicious! I made it last night, and it was so good! It is best right out of the oven, but it was still really, really good reheated the next morning. I subbed cranberries for the strawberries and sliced almonds for the pecans, because that was what I had on hand. I love that this recipe was so easy to make and versatile! I will definitely make it again (and I just shared the link with two friends)!

PUL Team - Feb. 11, 2022, 1:02 a.m.

Hi Lela, how incredible to hear! Thanks for the support and for sharing the substitutions 😃


Gina - Jan. 29, 2022, 7:07 p.m.

Great ideas! Baking my oats now! Love the feature that gives you an option to change portions, very helpful. I also really appreciate the focus towards nutrition instead of calories. Love the website in general!

PUL Team - Jan. 29, 2022, 8:25 p.m.

We appreciate it so much, Gina, thank you! We hope you enjoy the oats as well ✨


Meri - Jan. 29, 2022, 12:22 p.m.

So comfy..I love this receipe for a perfect breakfast. Moreover the idea to have a dynamic update of the receipe based on few key options is really magic 😃😃!!! I like so much to follow your great work!! Thank you 😘

PUL Team - Jan. 29, 2022, 7:56 p.m.

Oh, Meri, it means so much! Thank YOU :D


Nitzan - Jan. 15, 2022, 12:09 p.m.

Hi!! It looks like an amazing recipe😃 can I put it in the freezer after it cools down? Thanks!

PUL Team - Jan. 15, 2022, 8:09 p.m.

Hi there, Nitzan! Yes, the baked oatmeal can be frozen if desired. We recommend to cut-up pieces and store them in an airtight container in the freezer for up to one month 😊

Nitzan - Jan. 15, 2022, 8:45 p.m.

Amazing!!! Thank you so much😊


Sammy Jo - Jan. 9, 2022, 10:10 p.m.

Looks and smells amazing!!! Can't wait to try it!

PUL Team - Jan. 10, 2022, 3:32 a.m.

We'd love to hear how it turned out, Sammy!


UltraVioletIris - Nov. 28, 2021, 9:53 p.m.

I am here for this recipe. I made this for a holiday breakfast with my family. This is a great recipe leaving everyone saying “ohhhhhh” and “yuuummmmmm”. Simple ingredients, great texture, deliciously and naturally sweet from the fruit. I use cashew cream instead of nut milk.

PUL Team - Nov. 29, 2021, 12:06 a.m.

Aw it means so much that the oatmeal is being enjoyed, UltraVioletIris 😃


Isabelle - Nov. 13, 2021, 3:34 p.m.

So delicious and easy to make. Absolutely loved it!


Diana - Oct. 30, 2021, 3:50 p.m.

This is awesome! I hate bananas with a passion so I use applesauce and only 1 cup almond milk instead and it comes out great every time! 🤗

PUL Team - Oct. 31, 2021, 6:37 p.m.

Thanks for sharing your take on this one, Diana, we're so glad the oatmeal was enjoyed :)


EJ - Oct. 16, 2021, 1:12 p.m.

Excellent breakfast idea. Easy to make and healthy. Thanks a lot :)

PUL Team - Oct. 16, 2021, 3:43 p.m.

The thanks is to you, EJ! We hope you enjoy it ☺️


Sri - Aug. 4, 2021, 1:28 p.m.

Tried this one with some other fruits and it was amazing! Thank you for the recipe


Rachelle Poat - July 25, 2021, 3:50 a.m.

I absolutely love this and so does my family! I’ve made it as is and I’ve also added fried apples in coconut oil with cinnamon, yummy!

PUL Team - July 26, 2021, 9:11 p.m.

Mmm apples sound like a yummy addition! Thank you for sharing, Rachelle 🤗


Alicia G - July 25, 2021, 1:14 a.m.

Yummy! Very good! Super easy to make, and depending on the size of your family, lasts a couple days!


Ky - July 24, 2021, 1:38 a.m.

Could not believe how good this turned out! I find it stores pretty well as long as you add more milk when reheating it!


Afat - July 19, 2021, 1:44 p.m.

Absolutely loved this recipe! I used olive oil to grease the pan and added cherries, blueberries and walnuts to the mixture. It was divine! Your website is a godsend, full of so many healthy and tasty recepies! Addicted!!

PUL Team - July 20, 2021, 5:35 a.m.

You're too kind, Afat, so glad you're enjoying the recipes and new website 🌻


Katona Laura - July 12, 2021, 12:43 p.m.

I love this recipe, i use it over and over again! Obsessed!


lucy - July 11, 2021, 5:36 p.m.

i put these in a muffin tray and enjoyed all week 🤎 so so yummy; highly recommend

PUL Team - July 16, 2021, 2:40 p.m.

So glad you're enjoying the muffins, Lucy! Much appreciated 😃


Irene - July 10, 2021, 8:32 p.m.

Can u suggest a way to make this without oven, it would be really helpful.
Thank you.

PUL Team - July 16, 2021, 4:01 a.m.

Hi Irene! Thanks for the question. Perhaps testing out smaller portions in the microwave or on the stove in a double boiler-styled pan formation are two ideas. We can't say the time or heat required with certainty as we haven't tested it out. Do let us know if you experiment with it 😃


Pearla - July 9, 2021, 5:04 a.m.

Really great treat to enjoy with the family on Sundays


Niamh - July 9, 2021, 1:10 a.m.

This looks fantastic! I just tried making a super basic baked oatmeal this week (trying to switch up my breakfast options) and loved it, so I'm going to do this next.


Becca - July 8, 2021, 6:18 p.m.

This recipe is so versatile! Great to use with apples or pears as well.


Kaeyli - July 8, 2021, 5:51 p.m.

I made this at the beginning of the week and it came out really lovely. It's nice to have an easy to prepare breakfast for a more breezy morning :) My favorite topping combo so far is sunflower seed butter + yogurt + maple syrup. Looking forward to trying out the other breakfast bar recipe soon!

PUL Team - July 9, 2021, 9:41 p.m.

Ooo such lovely toppings, Kaeyli, thank you for sharing ✨😃


Deepika Ahuja - July 8, 2021, 6:13 a.m.

Hi Sadia,

Can we do all the preparations of oatmeal mixture at night and bake it next morning? Will it be good?
Jus wanted to try it but short on time to make all the preparations in the morning hence asked u To advise.

PUL Team - July 8, 2021, 7:23 a.m.

Hi Deepika, thank you for the question 😃 We haven't tested it out, but I imagine that the oats would absorb the liquid overnight which may impact the baking. Perhaps waiting until it can be baked closer to preparing the mixture may be a good idea. if you experiment with it, we'd love to hear your experience though!

Mandi - Feb. 11, 2022, 2:46 a.m.

I have done this a couple times and actually just finished doing it a minute ago. I prepared all the wet and dry ingredients separately and tomorrow morning I will combine them and bake. Makes for less effort before I've had my coffee. Love love this recipe and have it in rotation along with several of your other breakfast recipes. So glad I stumbled on your YouTube videos one evening a while back when I was craving curry :)

PUL Team - Feb. 11, 2022, 3:35 p.m.

A lovely idea, Mandi, thank you for sharing your experience with the oatmeal 😃


Cris S - June 5, 2021, 4:55 p.m.

This is among the most clever and tasty make-ahead cereal breakfasts! It lasted me about a week in the fringe! I'd vote for more similar recipes because it's so convenient!

PUL Team - June 5, 2021, 10:04 p.m.

Thank you for the review and suggestion, Cris! We'll aim to share some more make-ahead breakfast recipes 🤩


Laura - May 31, 2021, 3:12 p.m.

This is my favourite breakfast recipe. I could literally eat the whole tray I made!

PS. I make this baked oatmeal at least once a week :))


Udi mazali - May 25, 2021, 4:57 p.m.

You are amazing


Louise Magnusson🇸🇪 - May 21, 2021, 8:20 a.m.

I tried this recipe a long time ago, and I wasn’t convinced. It was dry, stuck in my baking tray, and there were big wet holes from the frozen berries.
However, one shouldn’t be discouraged by failures so I tried baked oatmeal once again. I’m happy that I really enjoyed it this time🥲. I had to optimise the size of my baking tray, oven temperature (my oven appears to “overheat”), and choice of fruit/berries. As you’ve said in the video, the options are actually endless. During my second attempt, I used orangeblossom water instead of vanilla extract and swapped berries to canned apricots. I served my moist (👏🏼) oatmeal with coconut yoghurt in addition to roasted coconut, almond butter, or vegan nutella. All combinations were amazing😋 I can’t wait to try a more autumn-inspired version with diced plums or grated apples and gingerbread spices.
I’ll also try to use berries again, but I think that fresh berries in season are better than frozen ones (reduce excess water whilst baking)

PUL Team - May 22, 2021, 9:43 p.m.

We're so glad you had a better experience with the recipe the second time around, Louise! Ovens can definitely be tricky to sort sometimes. Your oatmeal ideas sound delicious 😍🤤


Kathy - April 30, 2021, 10:34 p.m.

This is my first time trying it and totally loved it. My daughters finished theirs and asked for more! 💜💜 will totally keep making this recipe and use it as a meal prep!

PUL Team - May 1, 2021, 8:21 p.m.

Aww this is so wonderful to hear, Kathy! Happy meal prepping to you and your little ones ✨❤️


Amanda - April 25, 2021, 8:51 p.m.

I love this recipe! This is one of my go to breakfasts I meal prep. I’ve made it with lots of different fruits and nuts and they all turn out great. I’ve seriously made this stuff at least 20 times. It’s a super easy recipe and it’s easy to make little changes to keep things fresh. My favorite variation I’ve done is swapping out the cinnamon for cardamom, almonds instead of pecans, and then mangos for the strawberries and blueberries.

PUL Team - April 26, 2021, 6:32 a.m.

We appreciate this so much, Amanda! Such wonderful ideas 😍


Rachel - April 7, 2021, 4:10 a.m.

Very easy to make and delicious! I only had one banana so I replaced the second with apple sauce! It's not too sweet and it's perfect with almond butter on top!

PUL Team - April 7, 2021, 6:17 a.m.

Mmm applesauce is a great idea, Rachel! So glad you enjoyed the baked oatmeal 😀


Tali - April 3, 2021, 6:17 p.m.

This turned out awesome! It was perfectly creamy, crunchy, not overly sweet, and overall very satisfying. Will be making again!

PUL Team - April 4, 2021, 3:01 a.m.

Oh so lovely to hear, Tali! Thank you 😃


Antonia - April 2, 2021, 8:54 a.m.

It was very easy to make and tasteful! Thank you very much for sharing the recipes with us!
I didn't have flaxseeds so I used chia seeds but it worked fine at last!
Bon appetit!

PUL Team - April 3, 2021, 1:44 a.m.

So happy to hear, Antonia! Thank you 🤗
