Triple Berry Vegan Oatmeal Bake

This triple berry baked oatmeal recipe is for sure a healthy vegan breakfast option and it’s great to make ahead for weekday meals, or even a nice weekend brunch. Unlike most traditional breakfast bakes, this naturally gluten-free recipe adds a layer of granola on top and lots of nuts to add a delicious crunch.

It’s officially berry season and I couldn’t be more excited. Strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries are some of my all-time favorite fruits. Maybe because it means Summer is here, but berry season is always one of my favs. Berries are also packed with antioxidants making them the superfoods of the fruit world!

This baked oatmeal recipe is actually healthy!

Oatmeal is an excellent source of healthy carbs and if I’m totally honest I eat them practically every morning (I am after all a creature of habit). My usual go-to is overnight oats, but I decided to change things up and make an oatmeal bake. It’s subtle with the sweetness and contains healthy ingredients such as coconut oil, flax seeds, pecans, maple syrup etc. Basically where I’m getting at is this recipe is a wholesome meal and you don’t have to eat junky to eat foods that taste good. All whole foods going on here and a whole lotta flavor. Not to mention it’s vegan and gluten-free. Let’s get to it!

Baked oatmeal isn’t only healthy for you my friend, but it’s really freakin’ easy to make! Literally, mix everything in a bowl and bake! Well, there’s some minor steps in between so please don’t just throw everything in a bowl and bake. What makes this baked oatmeal recipe unique is the extra granola layer on top! It adds a great texture element to the soft oatmeal and berries. Trust me on this one!

Tip: If it’s not berry season in your area, you can always substitute with another in-season fruit (like peaches or rhubarb!) Alternatively, you can buy frozen berries and they will work wonderfully too!

I love making this bake for breakfast for the weekdays, or for a nice brunch recipe! This recipe is great for Easter, Mother’s Day, or even a great back to school treat. Whatever the occasion is, this baked oatmeal recipe is for you.

    Made this for brunch with girlfriends who aren’t vegan and they loved it!
    Side note: It doesn’t say when to put in flax egg. Almost forgot it and added it after berries.
    Added a touch of cinnamon and freshly grated nutmeg to the topping.
    Can’t wait to have leftovers for breakfast tomorrow.
    Thanks!

    This is delicious! Has anyone tried freezing this?? I’m debating whether it would be best to freeze before baking or after baking (then thawing and reheating)… would hope to avoid sogginess as much as possible.

    • I have not tried freezing it, but if you do, I recommend baking, cutting into squares,then freezing. You can try thawing overnight in the fridge and microwave in the morning.
