We are real oatmeal lovers: overnight oats, steel-cut oats, oats bars, or just the classic ol' stovetop comforting oatmeal. But this here - this is actually the first time we made a baked oatmeal recipe. Great for big appetites or mornings with the family. Bon appétit!
Baked Berry & Pecan Oatmeal
▸ ▹ Vegan, gluten-free, soy-free
Servings: 6 - 8
Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: 40 min
Total Time: 50 min
1 Tbsp (7 g) ground flaxseeds
3 Tbsp (45 mL) water
2 ripe bananas
1½ cups (360 mL) unsweetened plant-based milk
1 tsp (5 mL) pure vanilla extract
2 cups (200 g) old-fashioned rolled oats (GF if desired)
2 tsp (6 g) ground cinnamon
1 tsp (5 g) baking powder
½ tsp salt
⅓ cup (35 g) raw pecans, roughly chopped*
¾ cup (110 g) blueberries
¾ cup (110 g) strawberries, sliced
Unsweetened plant-based yogurt**
Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
To a large bowl, add the flaxseeds and water. Mix and let rest for about 5 minutes to create a flax egg.
Lightly grease a 9 x 12 inch (23 x 31 cm) baking dish with a bit of oil.
Returning to the bowl, add the bananas and mash until pureed. Then add the milk and vanilla, and stir to combine.
To the same bowl, add all the oats, cinnamon, baking powder, salt, and pecans, and mix until combined.
Carefully fold in the blueberries and strawberries.
Pour the mixture into the baking pan, and spread it out evenly. If you'd like, you can decorate the top with a few extra slices of strawberry, some fresh blueberries, and some whole pecans. Then bake in the preheated oven for 35 - 40 minutes, or until firm and lightly golden on the top.
Top with extra fruits and serve with yogurt, and other desired toppings like nut butter, and maple syrup.
* Variations: instead of pecans, you can also use other nuts like almonds or seeds, such as pumpkin seeds.
** Nutrition tip: try to use a plant-based yogurt/milk that is fortified with calcium (offers approximately 120 mg calcium per 100 mL serving). If you want to read more on calcium, check out our article here.
Storage: best if enjoyed immediately. The baked oatmeal can be stored in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to 3 days and in the freezer for up to 2 months.
