Simple Berry Oatmeal Bake - perfect for back to school breakfast! #krollskorner #breakfast #oatmeal #easy #yum

Can’t get the kiddos to eat a regular bowl of oatmeal? Or just want to switch up your own breakfast routine? This oatmeal berry bake will do the trick!

I can count the number of times on one hand I ate oatmeal growing up.

I just didn’t enjoy it – it was always cereal, toast, eggs, pancakes…something like that.

I never actually thought oatmeal tasted good until my middle school/high school years when I was serious in athletics and needed something more than sugary cereal (Frosted Flakes and Cookie Crisp  mmm).

So, I started coming around to oats when I learned people put brown sugar on them HAHA.

Now well into my 20s I can eat a bowl of oats just as is (always with milk though!) I like to load my oats with a bunch of fruit now with a touch of honey. Not to say I don’t bust out the brown sugar from time to time *wink wink*

Let’s be real though, plain oats just aren’t fun. However, using your oats to make a bake is fun! Especially if you have picky eaters at home, or are just over regular oats and want to switch things up for your morning routine. 

Oats provide…

  • Fiber
  • Whole Grains 
  • Manganese
  • B Vitamins
  • Antioxidants 

What are the best oats to use for oatmeal bakes?

I personally like the quick 1-minute oats best. The bake holds shape really well!

Can you freeze this for meal prep throughout the week?

You bet! Make sure it cools before placing in freezer! I like to cut it up into portions and then heat it up in the microwave the morning I want it!

What other oatmeal recipes are your favorites?

This cozy snickerdoodle cookie oatmeal bowl is a perfect Fall or Winter breakfast.  Or if you’re a fan of overnight oats you’ll be sure to love these pumpkin pie overnight oats!

If you need some protein to go along with your oats I recommend this high protein quinoa scramble – fresh and satisfying!
