Baked Berry & Banana Oats

Baked Berry & Banana Oats

Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day; it sets me up for the morning ahead and I love leaving the house knowing that I’ve had at least one or two of the five portions of fruit and vegetables that I should be eating that day!


This healthy recipe, baked berry & banana oats is novel take on porridge and it really is easy to make; you just mix all of the ingredients together before popping it into the oven!


You can make this recipe the night before a busy morning: The end result can be sliced up and enjoyed at home either hot or cold or taken to work with you to enjoy at your desk. I love adding a dollop of yoghurt for extra creaminess too and I promise you that it’s a hit with both children and adults alike.



This recipe provides a whole host of different nutrients including soluble fibre from the oats, potassium and vitamin C from the banana and blueberries and protein and calcium from the eggs and milk.


Feel free to change the fruit if you like; strawberries also work really well!

    Looks great! I always want to make naked oats but it would be for one, does it keep long? Is it best served warm or cold?

    • December 8, 2015 / 5:55 pm

      I prefer it heated up in the microwave (if it’s being stored in the fridge covered!). It lasts for a few days – mainly fruit dependent 🙂 x

    Hey huni would this work with protein powder in it do you think? 🙂 X

    • December 11, 2015 / 4:54 pm

      Yes if course! Maybe add a touch more milk too? Let me know how it goes Emma! x

    Is there a substitute I could use for the bananas?

    • December 15, 2015 / 10:16 pm

      Maybe apple puree for the mix and more berries on top?

  7. December 16, 2015 / 5:50 pm

    This looks amazing! Will definitely be giving this a go!! Thank you 🙂 x

    I always make porridge with water and no milk, would this not work for this recipe?

    • January 6, 2016 / 8:51 pm

      It could do yes! I just prefer oats with milk – more protein and calcium too! x

    Best way to reheat in morning if you’ve prepped night before? Alternatively could you mix and place in dish then fridge that and bake in morning?

    • January 17, 2016 / 9:00 pm

      Of course! I just microwave the next day 🙂 xx

    Hi Nic do you think it would work with almond milk?

    I love this so yummy! Sometimes if I’m short on time I make it in the microwave for speed(I did have to tweak it a little for the microwave tho)

      OOh that’s amazing to hear thank you!!!!!

    Hi Nic, I have tried to make this a couple of times and it comes out sloppy. I tried leaving it in the oven for longer but doesn’t seem to turn to a cake texture, it’s just like thick sloppy porridge! I have used almond milk but I don’t think that should effect it? Is 375ml the correct amount of milk to use? Not sure where I am going wrong! Thanks Rachel
