Healthy Baked Mixed Berry Oatmeal

Posted on Mar 29, 2018


With everything going on of late, I have been making quick and easy recipes that are practical, healthy and above all tasty. Whenever I am busy, I always have a tendency to reach for junk food. Its quick and easy but it never really satisfies in the long run. Not like this Healthy Baked Mixed Berry Oatmeal, which is so easy to make, satisfying and tasty. This healthy baked mixed berry oatmeal makes a great weekend breakfast. A brilliant grab and go breakfast and actually quite a nice healthy dessert.

Breakfast or Dessert.

This healthy baked mixed berry oatmeal works great for breakfast, dessert or as a healthy snack. Packed full of oats and fruit this dish is hearty enough to satisfy your hunger and any sweet craving you may have. I have enjoyed it warmed up for breakfast, cold as a mid-afternoon snack and served with some Greek yoghurt for dessert.

Sweet.

There is very little added in the way of sweeteners. There are 2 tablespoons of light agave nectar and 3 teaspoons of Truvia sweetener added. You can replace this with sugar if you wish to, or any granulated sweetener of your choice. I like Truvia because at least it is natural and not artificial, and has zero calories! Which is always a bonus.

There is also a mashed banana mixed in with all the oats, it is best to use a ripe banana as it will impart more sweetness. The more brown spots the better, also ripe juicy berries are packed full of natural sweetness. I used a combination of strawberries, raspberries and blueberries.

Oats and everything else.

Obviously, there are oats but there are a few other things which help to give this healthy baked mixed berry oatmeal its lovely flavour and texture. Along with the mashed banana and agave nectar we have unsweetened almond milk. Any milk of choice will work, an egg and some vanilla extract. Dry ingredients are cinnamon, a pinch of salt, a small amount of Truvia and a touch of baking powder, to help give it a small lift.

Pretty much any fruit can be used in this kind of dish. I just love the combination of berries, it makes me think of warmer summer days that will hopefully be arriving very soon. Fingers crossed 😀

  1. Do you know of anything I could substitute the banana with ?
    This looks delicious but bananas bother both myself and my fiancé.
    Thank you

    • Hi Judy, I have only just found your comment in the spam folder so I apologise for taking so long to reply to you. I haven’t tried it, but you could try substituting with applesauce. It has a similar consistency and it shouldn’t change the flavour profile too much.
