Baked Mixed-Berry Oatmeal with Chia
This is a super-easy recipe that can be made ahead and can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 5 days!
I love this stuff warm and right out of the oven, but can be reheated in the microwave with a splash of milk. It’s warm, comforting and reminds me of a pie or cobbler but healthier. I love to eat it for breakfast with a boiled egg on the side, so I get protein, fiber, fat and carbohydrates that fill me up until lunch time. This is also a great post-run snack.
- 2 cups steel cut oats
- 1 & 1/2 cup frozen mixed berries
- 1 egg
- ¼ cup organic brown sugar
- 1 tbsp. honey
- 2 & 1/3 cup milk (soy, coconut, cow, goat, etc)
- 1 & 1/3 tbsp baking powder
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 2 tbsp cinnamon
- 1tbsp. vanilla extract
- 3 tbsp. butter or coconut oil (melted)
- 2/3 cup chia seeds
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and lightly grease a glass 9″x13″ pan.
Combine all the dry ingredients together in a bowl and all the wet ingredients together in another bowl.
Layer half the berries in the glass and then layer the dry mixture together. Top with the remaining berries. Pour the wet ingredients (whisk together first to make sure they are blended) over the berry and oat mixture.
Bake for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Drizzle honey on top before serving.
