One Dish Baked Fruity Oatmeal

A heartwarming bowl of oatmeal is a perfect way to start the day. This recipe for One Dish Baked Fruity Oatmeal offers a filling, nutritious and no-fuss breakfast that serves a crowd. I love the versatility of the recipe and the ways you can change it up to please anyone’s taste buds.

Making the Baked Oatmeal

This baked oatmeal is simple enough to get the kids involved in making it. The first step is to mash medium-ripe bananas into the bottom of the baking dish. Kids could easily do the mashing with a dinner fork.

After that it’s just a matter of layering in the oats, chia seeds, milk, berries, coconut and walnuts. You could also top this with different types of fruits, seeds or nuts, yogurt, syrup or a drizzle of nut butter. It can be customized in so many ways.

The great thing about letting the kids help is they’re more likely to try the oatmeal when it’s done. You can also let them pick what type of berries or nuts they want to add to entice them ever further.

Chopping the walnuts is best left for an adult. Use a 7-5/8" Petite Chef to chop them on a Large Cutting Board. Draw them into a pile and use a rocking motion over them to chop. You may have to keep gathering the nuts into the center of the board as you chop until you reach the desired size.
