TIP OF THE DAY: Try Baked Oatmeal

If you love oatmeal—or if porridge isn’t your thing—here’s a new way to try it: baked oatmeal!

Simple yet delicious, kids can help measure and stir ingredients. The recipe finishes in the oven while you’re brewing the coffee.

Prep time is five minutes, cook time is 40 minutes.

Thanks to Driscoll’s and recipe developer and blogger, Maria Lichty from Two Peas and Their Pod, for this delicious idea. Here are more berry recipes from Driscoll’s.


Ingredients For 6 Servings

  • 2 cups old fashioned oats/rolled oats (the different types of oats/oatmeal)
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 2 cups heavy cream

    1. PREHEAT oven to 350°F. Grease an 8 x 8-inch baking pan and set aside.

    2. STIR together oats, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt in a large bowl.

    3. WHISK together heavy cream, egg, butter and vanilla in a separate bowl. Pour heavy cream mixture over oat mixture and stir until combined. Add 1 cup sliced strawberries.

    4. POUR into prepared baking dish. Gently pound baking dish on the countertop to make sure cream moves through oats. Scatter remaining strawberries over top of the oatmeal.

    5. BAKE 40 minutes, or until top is golden brown and oat mixture has set. Remove from oven and let cool 5 minutes. Serve warm.

    Porridge is a dish made by boiling ground, crushed, or chopped cereal grains in water or milk. Optional flavorings can be added, from spices to fruits or cheese.

    Porridge is usually served hot in a bowl or dish. It may be sweetened with sugar or served as a savory dish (cheese grits is an example).

    Any cereal grain can be turned into porridge. Buckwheat, oats, wheat (Cream of Wheat, Wheatena) and rice (Cream of Rice) are most popular in the U.S. Worldwide, barley, fonio, maize, millet, rice, rye, sorghum, triticale and quinoa are also made into porridge.
