This fruit-sweetened Blueberry Baked N’oatmeal recipe features blueberries (or any fruit you’d like), wholesome coconut, nuts and warming spices. You can bake some now and enjoy n'oatmeal for the rest of the week!

I made this Blueberry Baked N’Oatmeal on a Monday, and shamelessly ate it for several meals in a row after perfecting the recipe (not to mention straight from the pan)! I named it Blueberry Baked “N’Oatmeal” because it’s NOT OATMEAL. See what I did there?

It makes a wonderfully filling make-ahead breakfast that keeps well for days and is delicious hot or cold. Sometimes I really crave something else in the morning aside from eggs, and this is a wonderful alternative. Spoon it into a bowl or mug and top with whipped cream, more berries, a drizzle of honey… or enjoy as-is for a fruit-sweetened breakfast or snack loaded with healthy fats in the nuts and coconut.

Ingredients

  • ⅔ cup roughly-chopped pecans
  • 2 cups shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 1/2 cups milk or coconut milk
  • 1/2 ripe banana, mashed
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 tbsp melted coconut oil, plus more for greasing the baking dish
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 12 oz or 1 pint fresh or frozen blueberries (or 2½ cups of your preferred berry/fruit, chopped into ½” pieces)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Grease an 8″ square baking dish.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the coconut, pecans, cinnamon, baking soda, salt and nutmeg. Whisk to combine.
  3. In a smaller mixing bowl, combine the milk, banana, eggs, coconut oil, and vanilla. Whisk until blended, then stir into the dry ingredients.
  4. Reserve about ½ cup of the berries for topping the baked oatmeal, then gently stir the rest into the batter. Spoon into the greased cake pan. Scatter the remaining berries across the top, and additional chopped pecans if desired.
  5. Bake for approximately 45 minutes, until the top is cooked and golden. Remove your baked n’oatmeal from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before serving.

The baked oatmeal dish looks amazing. I could eat that right now. The recipe seems very easy too. I am a big oatmeal eater so I will have to try doing this bake. The pictures of the falls are beautiful too.

This was surprisingly great! My husband liked it and my kids, 2 of which are teenagers and picky. It is so easy, smells great while it’s baking and tastes good warm or straight out of the refrigerator. I have made it twice in one week. I am always looking for alternatives to egg based recipes. This is wonderful!

I don’t see oatmeal in this recipe anywhere. Are you suppose to use shredded unsweetened coconut or?
Looks amazing however, I’m confused as to what your recipe states ingredient wise.

Reply
Fresh Planet Flavor July 28, 2016 - 12:25 am

Shredded unsweetened coconut is what you use instead of oatmeal. That’s why it’s called “N’Oatmeal”… which stands for NOT OATMEAL.

Reply
Jessica July 28, 2016 - 5:56 pm

Oh okay! Thank you! Does it have a strong coconut flavor using that much then? I made it with regular oatmeal and the recipe is still amazing. Do you by chance know the calorie count on the recipe?

Reply
Fresh Planet Flavor July 28, 2016 - 8:22 pm

I don’t think it does, but I may have skewed taste buds since I eat coconut very regularly!

Reply
Fresh Planet Flavor July 28, 2016 - 8:23 pm

I also do not track calories, so I am not quite sure of the count.

Well… I have not tried it, or ever worked with gelatin eggs before. I think it is worth a try, though. 🙂

I’m going to be traveling and wondering if I could make this ahead and if it would need to be refrigerated? My thoughts are people make things like cookies and cakes all the time that have an egg or 2 in them and they don’t put those in the fridge…

Reply
Fresh Planet Flavor October 5, 2016 - 4:40 pm

The issue is with the goji berries… I have had a batch grow mold on the goji berries after a week of refrigeration, but this could have been simply due to a low-quality batch.

I loved this! My kids weren’t too crazy about it though. I think if I work with the ratios–maybe using one more egg and slightly less milk–they will like it more. I will definitely make it again, even if I’m the only one to eat it! I calculated the calories and net carbs, and I was pleasantly surprised. 🙂 Thanks for this recipe!

Either I’m just using way different ingredients or not reading this recipe correctly but 8 servings of this for me was well over 45 cals per serving. Thanks for sharing the recipe. It’s in the oven now, hopefully it makes it worth the fat and carbs I wasn’t expecting to eat.

Reply

Thank you so much for bringing this to my attention. 45 calories per serving? Didn’t seem right, so I checked my nutrition facts calculator and I’d entered “serves 6-8” which was causing it to miscalculate. I changed it to “serves 8”, and the correct calories have populated: 301 per serving. I apologize for the error!
