Making Oatmeal Breakfast Casserole Is Easy
It’s as easy as 1-2-3:
- Preheat the oven, and spray a baking dish.
- Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl.
- Pour into the prepared pan and bake.
Honestly, even the kids can do this. Once baked, place in serving bowls, garnish with additional berries and milk and dig in.
Store leftovers in a sealed container in the fridge.
- Dairy and non-diary milk can be used. My new favourite non-dairy milk is oat milk. Almond milk, soy or coconut would be great too.
- Almonds can be swapped out for pecans, walnuts, pistachios, or whatever your favourite nut is.
- Maple sugar is so delicious, but feel free to use brown sugar, coconut sugar or even maple syrup or honey.
- Old-fashioned oats are great for any baking recipe. Regular oats are fine. Steel-cut oats will not work well in this casserole.
- Blueberries can be fresh or frozen. You can also use apples, pears, or any other berry you like.
Yes, baked oats are nutritious and filling. This recipe is like eating a healthy cake for breakfast.
This is the perfect breakfast recipe for reheating. I like to make lots so we can reheat on busy weekdays. Just pop a bowl in the microwave for a minute or so. Breakfast is ready.
