Baked Berry Oatmeal

I am definitely not a morning person and fitting in time to eat a wholesome breakfast before leaving for work can be difficult for me. Since I’m typically in a time crunch in the mornings, I tend to grab something quick to take with me and eat it once I get to work. I am a fan of fast and easy breakfasts but also make sure they include fiber and protein to keep me fuller for longer. Otherwise, I know I will be hungry an hour after eating.

I recently found this recipe for baked oatmeal and knew I had to try it. I made a few alterations to create an overall healthier product.  The oatmeal does not come out especially sweet, but you could always drizzle maple syrup and/or sprinkle cinnamon on top for additional sweetness! The best part is that you can make this ahead of time and reheat it as needed. It is also a great dish to make for a large group of people or on a Sunday in preparation for the week ahead.

First, prepare the berries and set aside. Combine the quick cook oats, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and Truvia brown sugar.

Now, whisk together the wet mixture of almond milk, eggs, vanilla extract, honey, melted butter.

Next, prepare a 2 quart baking dish by layering half of the berries and topping with the dry oat mixture evenly. Pour on the wet mixture and then sprinkle the rest of the berries on top with roughly chopped pecans (or the nut of your choice).

Bake for 15-20 minutes at 375 degrees or until the oats have absorbed the liquid. Sprinkle with additional cinnamon or drizzle maple syrup or honey on top as desired for additional sweetness. You could also mix in ground flax seed for additional fiber and omega-3 fatty acids! Enjoy!
