I don’t think there’s a kid out there that hasn’t had oatmeal as a staple breakfast food. It’s easy, filling, and especially tasty in the cold winter months. Don’t get us wrong, there are a lot of boring and bland oatmeal recipes out there, so experiment with different flavors and add-ins to see what you and your family likes best.

This recipe is a baked oatmeal recipe so it will make a lot at once. This the perfect recipe to make at the beginning of the week and then store in your fridge.

Your ingredients should include:

  • 2 cups of oatmeal
  • an Apple (if the Apple is small used two)
  • 2 cups of the mixed or your favorite berries
  • half a cup of pecans, walnuts, or your favorite nuts
  • 1/2 cup nonfat yogurt, preferably vanilla
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup, for a little flavor
  • an egg and one egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (sea salt or kosher salt goes wonderfully in this dish)
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract (imitation is okay, the careful of the alcohol content)
  • 1 cup of milk (for less calories used 2% or 1% reduced fat milk)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

First preheat your oven to 375°F. Take out a 9 inch pie pan and either spray it with oil, or use coconut oil on a non-stick pan.

In the meantime mix together all of your dry ingredients. The salt, baking powder, oatmeal, nuts, Apple(s), and berries in a large sized bowl. Then add in the egg and egg yolk, milk, vanilla, syrup, and yogurt. Make sure it is mixed well. Pour into your well oiled pie pan and slide into the oven. Bake until golden brown, approximately 50 min. Serve warm or cold. For a garnish you can use a sprig of mint, a dollop of yogurt, or some fresh berries.
