Directions

Click:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
  2. To a large bowl, add the flaxseeds and water. Mix and let rest for about 5 minutes to gel.
  3. Lightly grease a 9 x 12 inch (23 x 31 cm) baking dish with a bit of oil.
  4. Returning to the bowl, add the bananas and mash until pureed. Then add the milk and vanilla, and stir to combine.
  5. To the same bowl, add all the oats, cinnamon, baking powder, salt, and pecans, and mix until combined.
  6. Then fold in the blueberries and strawberries.
  7. Pour the mixture into the baking dish, and spread it out evenly. If you'd like, decorate the top with a few slices of strawberry, some blueberries, and some whole pecans. Bake in the centre rack of the oven for 35 - 40 minutes, or until firm and lightly golden on the top.
  8. Top with extra fruits and serve with plant-based yogurt, and other desired toppings like nut butter, and maple syrup.

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!

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

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.

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

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!

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

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

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!
