Oatmeal Fruit Bake

Oatmeal Fruit Bake

It’s August! Can you believe it? This month we are going to focus on some recipes from my Breakfast Bests collection! From a delicious oatmeal fruit bake with bananas and strawberries to a “Just Eggs” veggie omelet and my yummy peanut butter pancakes with blueberries—you’re going to love them all. Breakfast is usually more around brunch time at our house, and these recipes are good at any time. They are comfort foods for sure!

This oatmeal fruit bake is vegetarian, but can easily be made vegan. It is filled with antioxidants too.

The whole grain goodness of the oatmeal makes it great even for a snack and/or dessert! Add chocolate chips if you wish.

Recipe Notes

Melissa's Modifications: This recipe offers so much variation! Use other fruits and berries—your choice. The dark chocolate chips are optional but add deliciousness (especially if you are enjoying as a dessert). To reduce the sugar and calories, use 6-8 drops of stevia extract (or similar sweetener*). You could even leave out the sweetener as the fruit may supply enough sugar for your taste.
