Berry Oatmeal Bake
There’s nothing quite like a warm oatmeal bake on a cold winter day–or really, any day because oatmeal is so comforting. This hearty Berry Oatmeal Bake is packed with fiber and nutrients, and it’s easy to make. Plus, it’s easy for on-the-go mornings and will leave you full till lunch. Oats is one of the healthiest grains on earth, they’re cheap, and this is a yummy way to enjoy them.
Simply combine rolled oats, plant milk, nut butter, your favorite fruit, and all your fixings in a baking dish, and bake until the oats are tender and the fruit is cooked through.
One thing I really like about this Berry Oatmeal Bake is that it’s fully customizable. You can use any nuts and seeds you have on hand. I used hemp seeds in this recipe because they’re especially high in protein. I added walnuts & flax seeds for their heart-healthy omegas. And, you can also use any fruit you have. I personally love berries because they burst in your mouth in this dish, but any fruit would taste amazing. This dish works well as a make-ahead meal too, so make several batches for the week, or freeze for later
Oatmeal bakes are the perfect comfort food: they’re warm, filling, and delicious. So next time you’re looking for a cozy meal, give this recipe a try. You won’t be disappointed.
