Baked oatmeal gluten free with fresh mixed berries and bananas is a delicious way to start the day!
Baked Oatmeal Gluten Free with Mixed Berries
I don’t have celiac disease or sensitivities to wheat, but with the growing gluten-free products on the market, I know a lot of people need to stay away from grains in their diets.
I get curious by what I see in our stores; gluten-free brownie mix, cornbread, and pizza dough are some pre-packaged mixes that I’ve come across.
How do gluten-free dishes taste compared to the all-purpose flour or wheat flour alternatives?
I’ve played around with a few recipes making gluten-free mini chai donuts and some muffins. I’ve found that the dough is dense and the baked item tastes best soon after it comes out of the oven, but neither of those recipes really wowed me enough to share the recipes, until I made this baked oatmeal dish!
This Baked Oatmeal with Mixed Berries and Bananas is made with gluten-free old fashioned rolled oats, and it is really good!
The oats taste different from the regular McCains brand that I usually buy. The dish is perfect for a healthy breakfast or brunch entree.
So if you are curious like I was or you really need to stay clear of products with gluten, give this recipe a try.

What has your experience been with gluten-free recipes or products?
- 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats (I used gluten-free)
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, divided
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 cup real maple syrup
- 1 cup milk (I used unsweetened almond milk)
- 1 large egg, lightly beaten
- 1 Tablespoon coconut oil (or butter), melted and cooled
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 ripe bananas, sliced
- 1 1/2 cups mixed berries (frozen or fresh)
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees
- Lightly grease a 2-quart baking dish with cooking spray.
- In a medium bowl mix oats, baking powder, cinnamon, and half of the chopped walnuts. Stir to combine.
- In a sperate bowl, combine the syrup, milk, egg, coconut oil (or butter), and vanilla.
- Spread the bananas in a single layer over the bottom of the baking dish. Top with one cup of the berries. Sprinkle the dry oat mixture over the fruit. Pour the liquid ingredients evenly over the oats.
- Sprinkle the remaining walnuts and ½ cup of berries over the top. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until the top is browned and the oats have set. Let cool slightly before serving.
