You’ve got to make this before the berries become obsolete for the winter. Down here in San Antonio, I’m still seeing good prices on berries every couple of weeks.
And if you see a great deal on berries…stock up and freeze. Now. You’ll thank yourself in the middle of December or January when you are in desperate need of a taste of summer.
(Yes, same method/concept works for blackberries!)
I went for the all smaller berries in this one…but feel free to get crazy and add a 4th berry (our friend, the strawberry) into the mix…just cut them up into smaller bite size pieces.
Did you know that Baked Oatmeal freezes really well!?! Here’s how I freeze ours…We usually eat about 1/2 – 3/4 of a 9×13 pan in one shot (whether for breakfast or for lunch), so I usually end up with a few ‘pieces’ that I freeze. After the baked oatmeal has cooled completely, I cut it up into individual single serving portions and freezer in plastic sandwich freezer baggies. Then I can quickly reheat them in the microwave or toaster oven if we are having for breakfast, or I can drop them frozen right into lunch boxes and they will thaw in time for the lunch hour. (Baked Oatmeal in School Lunchboxes Idea!)

How did you KNOW this is what I needed? We stockpiled a ton of berries this Summer and I’ve been looking for a good baked oatmeal recipe to use them in all winter that doesn’t require bananas. Hooray! I don’t suppose the applesauce can be omitted or substituted for? I rarely have that on hand.

Do you think I could use a gluten free four for this? Which one would you think would work better an APGF flour or coconut or almond? THanks
Could coconut oil or olive oil be used? Those are the only two oils I use….Thanks!
Jenn K says
Yes, coconut oil would work!
I made this using frozen organic fruit which made it kind of expensive, but it was great! I substituted coconut oil for the canola and honey for the sugar. It was great hot out of the oven, at room temp, and right out of the fridge. I really loved this recipe but we’ll have to pick some free fruit next time!
