Vegan Baked Oatmeal

On the weekend, in the winter or for Easter Brunch, there's nothing I like better than a fruity baked oatmeal. You can make it ahead of time and just pop it in the oven when you wake up. It's also super easy to sneak in extra nutrition. I add chia seeds, ground flax, and hemp hearts to almost anything—as a vegetarian and someone who gets Seasonal Affective Disorder, it's important for me to boost my omega-3 and omega-6 intake whenever possible, plus the added protein and fiber don't hurt. 

The great thing about this recipe is you can mix and match the fruit. I usually include apple, but I've paired it with pear, banana, strawberry, and raspberry. You can also easily make it with gluten-free rolled oats if you have a gluten sensitivity. Plus, as a bonus your whole house will smell amazing as it's baking.


1 apple, peeled and diced
1 cup strawberries, sliced
1 1/2 cups rolled oats (or gluten-free rolled oats)
2 tbsp chia seeds
2 tbsp hemp hearts
2 tbsp ground flax
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1 tbsp organic vanilla extract
2-3 tbsp maple syrup
2 cups non-dairy milk (at Naturally Savvy, we like So Delicious)
1/2 cup crushed walnuts or almonds for topping (optional)


Preheat the oven to 350F. Mix fruit and dry ingredients in a large bowl, then add milk, vanilla, and maple syrup. Pour into a square casserole dish. Bake for 25 minutes, then add the nuts if using and bake for an additional 5 minutes (keep an eye on the nuts to ensure they don't burn).
