Do you love having oatmeal for breakfast? Try this Blackberry Baked Oatmeal! It's easier to make than you might think and takes like a dessert! This recipe is fully vegan and gluten-free.
Is baked oatmeal better than stovetop oatmeal?
Not necessarily! Regular oatmeal is great for every day, baked oats are great for those days you want something special or when you're making breakfast for more people. It's super easy to double this recipe as many times as you need!
Baked oatmeal is basically just fancy oatmeal that's baked in the oven and tastes more like a dessert than breakfast.
I like to make it on weekends. Sometimes I drizzle a little bit of homemade Raw Chocolate Sauce on top too to make it more indulgent because why not!
This recipe is light yet filling and the right amount of sweet. I added a touch of maple syrup to complement the tart blackberries. It's made with cinnamon and cardamom which both go really great with blackberries.
Ingrediens and Variations
The ingredients in this recipe are incredibly simple. It's basically just oats, milk, and blackberries!
Rolled oats - Oats are naturally gluten-free but if you're allergic, make sure they're gluten-free certified. You can use both rolled or quick-cooking oats but I recommend old-fashioned rolled oats.
Blackberries - You can use both fresh and frozen, they both work great. If you use frozen, you don't have to defrost them before baking. After baking they turn into delicious berry puddles of flavor and make these baked oats 10 times fancier.
Cinnamon and Cardamom - These two spices are the stars of the show here right after the blackberries. They bring all the flavor to the dish and go really well with the blackberries and vanilla. You could also add ground ginger.
Plant-Based Milk - Any plant milk works here. I like almond or cashew. I don't recommend using water instead of milk, you'd lose a lot of flavor and creaminess.
I already mentioned the Raw Chocolate Sauce earlier in the post, it's so good, you need to try it! But besides that, the options are endless.
Here are some of my favorite oatmeal toppings:
- Berries (raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, blackberries)
- Nut Butter (almond, coconut, hazelnut, or this Homemade Healthy Nutella)
- Hemp Hearts
- Ice Cream (hello breakfast for dessert!)

Baked oatmeal is brilliant! I bet this would also be amazing - in a softer sort of way - in a slow cooker! I bought 2 pints of fresh, local, organic blackberries last weekend so this post couldn't have come at a better time! I'm very excited to try it :-)
Blackberries are the best, right? I don't actually own a slow cooker so I can't comment on that but let me know how it was if you end up trying it! :)
Wow, this looks super good! I am definitely going to try it.
Thank you, Kate! Hope you love it :)
I am such a huge fan of oatmeal. I eat it at least 5 times a week. This is a fun unique way to have oatmeal. Love the use of almond milk and chia seeds!
That makes two of us! It's hard for me to choose to have anything but oatmeal for breakfast lately haha. I'm happy you like it! :)
