Is there a breakfast that is just EASY and already made for the morning, without compromising health? This wholesome recipe is just that! You can serve baked oatmeal for baby right out of the oven or keep it in the fridge for those mornings when you need something fast.

It’s summer and there are tons of delicious fresh berries around! Blueberries, blackberries, mulberries…and this recipe can use any of the above combo, whatever you have on hand. Did you go mulberry picking? Did you grab some fresh blackberries at the farmers market? Or do you have some in the freezer you can quickly defrost in a minute in the microwave? All of those could work here.

I started playing with this recipe when we had so many mulberries on hand we didn’t know what to do with them! I was thinking something cobbler-ish but really wanted something I could take out easily for breakfast. To me this one doubles as a breakfast food and a sweet treat when you need it.

Since my first couple bakes with mulberries, I’ve also tried it with blackberries and am so convinced any berry combination will be delish. Our blackberries this year have been a little tart, and so throwing them in here with a touch of sweetness has been perfect.

I love recipes where you just dump everything in the baking dish together and mix it up. It’s super mindless and easy and to me this is how cooking becomes more therapeutic than a chore.

Then you just press some of the berries with the fork to give it that nice purpley hue. It can be tempting to skip the almond extract but that is by far my favorite flavor here! If you don’t have it, vanilla or skipping it will do, but truthfully I accidentally dumped half a bottle in and the dish was still so good to me.

Bake at 375 for 20-25 minutes. Serve plain or with greek yogurt, it’s crisp, flavorful, and delightful!
