Where are my baked oatmeal fans? A sheet pan of baked oatmeal is SOO yummy & saves you time throughout the week. You can cut a square and eat it like an oatmeal square on the go or put it in a bowl with yogurt or pour milk overtop and eat it warm! However you are feeling that day, listen to your body cues, and enjoy it how you like it best. Hot or cold, it’s awesome both ways.
What I love about this baked oatmeal recipe is that it is such a versatile recipe and the flavour options are truly endless. I am providing you a Basic Berry Baked Oatmeal Recipe, BUT you can use this base recipe and swap out the berries for ANY other fruit you have in the fridge. I find this is such a great way to reduce food waste in your kitchen by blending fruit or veggies that might look soft, instead of throwing that food out you can blend it down and add it to your baked oatmeal.
You can also swap out spices, the liquid you choose, and/or the sweetener that you enjoy will allow you to constantly change their flavour profile. So this is your reminder to have fun with this basic baked oatmeal recipe. Get creative, play with your food, and keep reinventing this recipe to use what you have on hand to create a waste-free kitchen while you enjoy a quick and easy breakfast for the upcoming week.

- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1 tsp cinnamon or change the flavor by using another spice like nutmeg, cardamom, pumpkin spice, etc

- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8x8 pan or use a nonstick pan.
- Blend your fruit in a blender or food processor until it's smooth. If you don't those tools you can chop them up or mash them so they mix well into your oat mixture. Set your prepped fruit aside.
- Mix all the remaining baked oatmeal ingredients into a bowl and then pour it into your greased pan (if you want to reduce mess, mix it all into the pan itself). Then fold in your blended (or chopped) fruit until it's well combined.
- Bake at 30-40 minutes until golden brown. Allow to cool, then cut a piece and enjoy on its own or add it to a bowl with a splash of milk, a dollop of yogurt, or add your favorite toppings. Enjoy.
