Whether it’s a lazy weekend brunch or quick weeknight brinner, we’ve got you covered with this healthy Mixed Berry Baked Oatmeal.
This post was created in partnership with our friends at Kalona Supernatural.
An easy one-bowl recipe that comes together with just a few wholesome ingredients.
Mixed Berry Baked Oatmeal is made with ingredients you may just have on hand. You’ll appreciate that it takes just 15 minutes (or less) to prep and in the oven, it goes. I personally prefer baked oatmeal over a bowl of oatmeal and that is because of the texture and how all of the delicious flavors come together. It’s sweetened ever so slightly with pure maple syrup and in combination with cinnamon, vanilla, and mixed berries it’s truly something scrumptious. I like to serve it warm, right out of the oven, with a dollop of whipped topping or yogurt on top! You’ll be mmm’ing at every bite.
Mixed Berry Baked Oatmeal is a dish to enjoy all year round.
This recipe calls for frozen berries, therefore it’s perfect to make all year one. I also want to note that it makes for a great meal prep recipe because it reheats nicely and you can even enjoy it cold if time is not on your favor and you need something quick. If you have another kind of frozen berries kickin’ around in your freezer, by all means, save yourself a trip to the grocery store and use what you have on hand.

You may have thought that kefir was just for drinking but it’s also great for baking. Whole milk kefir adds richness to baked goods and can be used in place of buttermilk in pancakes, waffles, muffins, and more. I love the flavor and nutritional benefits kefir adds to this recipe and I highly recommend you make it as the recipe calls, however, if needed feel free to substitute any milk of your choosing.

How to Make this Baked Oatmeal Egg-Free
To make this baked oatmeal egg-free, simply replace the egg(s) with ‘flax eggs’ in the recipe and bake as directed.
To make a ‘flax egg’, combine 1 tablespoon ground flax meal and 3 tablespoons water in a small bowl. Stir well and let stand 5-10 minutes to thicken then add to the recipe in place of the eggs.
Double this if the recipe calls for 2 eggs.
- 2 ¾ cups gluten-free rolled oats
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds (optional)
- ⅓ cup pure maple syrup (use 3 tablespoons for less sweet)
- ½ cup mashed banana (1 ripe banana)
- 2 large eggs (See Notes for egg-free option)
- 1 ½ cups Kalona Supernatural Organic Plain Kefir* (or milk of choice)
- ¼ cup melted butter (½ stick)
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon fine salt
- 1 ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 ½ cups frozen berries (do not thaw)
- Preheat oven to 375℉. Spray a 9×9-inch baking dish with cooking oil spray.
- In a bowl, combine all of the ingredients.
- Transfer to the prepared 9×9-inch dish. Top with a few additional frozen berries, if desired.
- Bake for 30 minutes or until the center is just set. For a more firm, bar-like, oatmeal bake, bake for 33-35 minutes.
- Let set for 5 minutes before serving.
