Thanks for joining Sarah and me for Meatless Monday today. Now that the weather is getting cooler and morning runs are getting longer, I am ready for a little breakfast switch up. I have always wanted to enjoy eating oatmeal but could not find the right combination of taste and texture until now. This Berry-licious Oatmeal Breakfast Bake hits the spot and could not be easier to meal prep and enjoy all week.
Berry-licious Oatmeal Breakfast Bake
I’ve always felt that if I start off the day with a healthy nutritious breakfast, it sets the tone for the whole day. Not everyone has the time to whip up something every morning. That’s what makes this Berry-licious Oatmeal Breakfast Bake so fantastic. You can easily bake it ahead of time and enjoy it all week. It warms up just perfectly in the microwave.
Did I mention that this nutritious breakfast has no added sugar at all and only a few real ingredients? Steel cut oatmeal, bananas, berries, eggs and milk of your choice. Throw in a dash of salt, vanilla and baking powder and you’ve got yourself a power packed Berry-licious Oatmeal Breakfast Bake.
After a few recipe trials, I’ve found the simplest way to prepare this Berry-licious Oatmeal Breakfast Bake is to use frozen mixed berries and a fresh banana. This time of the year, the frozen berries are tastier and more economical. Also ensures that you always have them on hand. I’ve used a blend of frozen strawberries, blackberries and blueberries but any blend will work just fine.
