I love making baked oatmeal for breakfast. I have several favorite recipes; classic baked oatmeal, blueberry, apple cinnamon, peach, carrot cake, peanut butter banana, and more!

During the spring and summer months, when strawberries are in season, I loving making Strawberry Baked Oatmeal. This oatmeal reminds me of the strawberries & cream oatmeal packets I used to eat as a kid, but MUCH better. So if you like the strawberries & cream oatmeal, you have to try my homemade version. Nostalgic, but even more delicious!

This oatmeal is bursting with strawberry flavor because I blend fresh strawberries with milk to create a strawberry milk that gives the oats maximum strawberry flavor.

I also add chopped up sweet and juicy strawberries to the oatmeal. mixture and top the baked oatmeal with sliced strawberries before baking to make the oatmeal extra pretty!

The oatmeal is hearty, satisfying, slightly sweet, and loaded with strawberries. Serve with a drizzle of maple syrup, a dollop of yogurt or whipped cream, or a sprinkling of nuts!

And the best part? This is a great meal prep recipe. Make a pan and reheat all week for breakfast! You will wake up excited to eat this oatmeal, it is such a treat!

Ingredients

  • Oats– use old fashioned oats. If you need the recipe to be gluten-free, make sure you use gluten-free oats.
  • Baking powder– make sure it is fresh!
  • Salt– to enhance all of the flavors.
  • Strawberries– For best results, use fresh strawberries that are red, ripe, and juicy!
  • Milk– I use unsweetened vanilla almond milk, but any milk will work. Dairy, cashew, oat, soy, or coconut milk.
  • Butter– melt the butter in the microwave or in a pan on the stove.
  • Eggs– use 2 large eggs. The eggs will add protein and help bind everything together.
  • Maple syrup– to sweeten the oats.
  • Vanilla extract– always use pure vanilla extract.

  • You can freeze baked oatmeal, but I think this strawberry baked oatmeal is best fresh because they strawberries get a little mushy after freezing and thawing.
