Looking for a healthy make-ahead breakfast? This is it. This berry baked oatmeal is heavy on the fruits – 3-1/2 cups! Vegan and easy to throw together on the weekend to eat during the week. One-bowl recipe.

Baked oatmeal is an easy addition to your weekly meal prep routine. I like to make a batch on Sunday so we have some leftovers for the week ahead.

No, we don’t eat breakfast together on Sundays. It rarely happens. Between early morning sports and practices, running dates and early work shifts for my teenager, weekend breakfasts together are few and far between.

But a batch of this berry baked oatmeal takes no time at all. If someone is around when it comes out of the oven, you can be sure that they will grab some.

Once baked, I let the casserole cool and then stash it into the refrigerator. Scoop some into a bowl during the week and warm up in the microwave for a healthy breakfast. This recipe is full of fruit!

I like to add chopped apples in addition to the berries to really pack in the fruit. Pears and bananas also work instead. Or some combination.

My kids have even been known to pack some into a container for a mid-morning snack.

I use frozen berries – because I usually have some on hand and they are inexpensive. But mostly I make it for the leftovers. Leftovers reheat quickly in the microwave.

How to make vegan baked oatmeal in one bowl

This baked oatmeal is vegan.

Often you will see eggs added to baked oats so that they hold together. I use flaxseed meal instead. And I’m not particularly keen on a stiff and firm final result. I like my baked oats to scoop and nestle into a bowl. It gives me an excuse to pour a little non-dairy creamer on top.

To make this a one-bowl oatmeal, mix the ground flaxseed (I add the brown sugar and vanilla now too) into the plant-based milk and let it hang out for a few minutes. I use this time to get the rest of my ingredients out and chop the apples.
