Berry Baked Oatmeal
This easy breakfast or brunch dish is chock-full of mixed berries and topped with yummy oats mixed with egg whites and brown sugar. It's delicious, easy on the waist, and not to mention incredibly filling! It's worth every bite.
Oh, but if you want to make this on the weekend, it also reheats nicely on a rushed Monday morning when you are focused on simply getting out of the house without looking like a zombie and so you pack up a Tupperware full of this goodness, tote it to work, and heat it up in the office microwave. It's pretty delicious then, too.
I hope you enjoy! I bet you could also make this with any fruit you want... apples, peaches, plums...
- Cooking spray, for the baking dish
- 1 1/2 cup mixed berries
- 3/4 cups fat-free or almond milk, plus more for topping
- 2 egg whites
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Coat an 8- or 9-inch round or square baking dish with cooking spray. (You could even do it in an ovenproof skillet with tall sides.) Spread the berries over the bottom of the pan.
In a bowl, combine the milk, egg whites, maple syrup, and vanilla extract. In a separate bowl, mix together the oats, brown sugar, baking powder, and baking soda.
Combine the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients and pour over top of the berries in the pan. Bake until browned on top, about 30-40 minutes. Serve in a bowl and top with some additional milk.
