Blackberry Baked Oatmeal

A healthy baked oatmeal recipe, studded with juicy blackberries and drizzled with a creamy sunflower seed butter. This recipe is a healthier way to enjoy PB&J for breakfast! This recipe as written is not sweetened. This allows you to adjust the sweetness to your family's preference. We love it served with a dollop of whipped cream, but feel free to drizzle it with honey or maple syrup.

Ingredients

  • 2 bananas ripe
  • 1 3/4 cup almond milk unsweetened, or other plant based milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil melted
  • 2-4 tablespoons sweetener honey, maple syrup, or coconut sugar, optional
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 1/2 cups oatmeal certified gluten free, if necessary
  • 2 1/2 cups blackberries divided
  • 2/3 cup SunButter No Sugar Added divided, or other variety - any will work
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds optional - sub other seed or nut

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375º F.
  • In a medium sized mixing bowl, mash bananas well. This recipe gets its very subtle sweetness from the bananas, so using ripe bananas helps. I also will use frozen bananas, thawed out and mashed.
  • To the mashed bananas, add almond milk, coconut oil, and eggs, and whisk to combine.
  • If your family likes sweet oatmeal, feel free to add maple syrup, honey or coconut sugar to the wet ingredients. We prefer it unsweetened, and then we add a bit of sweetness to the top.
  • Add the baking powder and sea salt to the wet ingredients, and whisk, and then add the oatmeal and mix together.
  • Into a 9x9 baking dish, add half of the oatmeal mixture. Spread the oatmeal out into an even layer across the bottom of the dish.
  • Top the oatmeal layer with half of the blackberries. Drizzle 1/3 cup SunButter over the blackberries.
  • Repeat with the rest of the oatmeal and the other 1 1/4 cup blackberries. Sprinkle the top with pumpkin seeds.
  • Bake the oatmeal for 35 -40 minutes, until set in the center.
  • Drizzle the baked oatmeal with the other 1/3 cup of SunButter.
  • Serve this delicious breakfast with whipped cream, maple syrup, or honey, based on preference.

Notes

*If blackberries are not in season, sub any other berries that you enjoy in this recipe. Blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries are all delicious in baked oatmeal recipes. I've been wanting to try this with peaches!
**I like using unsweetened almond milk and SunButter, and leaving this oatmeal purely fruit sweetened. It is not a sweet breakfast, but rather has pops of natural sweetness from the fruit. I prepare it this way and then allow my family to sweeten it to their own preference with honey or maple syrup. Feel free to add a few tablespoons of honey, maple syrup, or coconut sugar directly into the wet ingredients.
***If you need this recipe to be gluten free, be sure to use certified gluten free oats and baking powder.
MAKE THIS VEGAN: If you need this recipe to be vegan, omit the eggs, and either add an additional mashed banana or an egg replacer like 2 tablespoons of chia seeds soaked in 6 tablespoons of water.
