Blueberry Baked N’Oatmeal
I made this Blueberry Baked N’Oatmeal on a Monday, and shamelessly ate it for several meals in a row after perfecting the recipe (not to mention straight from the pan)! I named it Blueberry Baked “N’Oatmeal” because it’s not oatmeal. See what I did there?
It makes a wonderfully filling make-ahead breakfast that keeps well for days and is delicious hot or cold. Sometimes I really crave something else in the morning aside from eggs, and this is a wonderful alternative. Spoon it into a bowl or mug and top with whipped cream, more berries, a drizzle of honey, or enjoy as-is for a fruit-sweetened breakfast or snack loaded with healthy fats in the nuts and coconut.Print
Blueberry Baked N’Oatmeal
- Prep Time: 20 min
- Cook Time: 45 min
- Total Time: 1 hr 5 min
- Yield: 6–8 servings 1x
- 2/3 cup roughly-chopped pecans
- 2 cups shredded unsweetened coconut
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- ¼ tsp salt
- ¼ tsp ground nutmeg
- 1 1/2 cups milk or coconut milk
- 1/2 ripe banana, mashed
- 2 large eggs
- 3 tbsp melted coconut oil, plus more for greasing the baking dish
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 12 oz or 1 pint fresh or frozen blueberries (or 2 1/2 cups of your preferred berry/fruit, chopped into 1/2” pieces)
- Preheat the oven to 350 F. Grease an 8″ square baking dish.
- In a medium mixing bowl, combine the coconut, pecans, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, and nutmeg. Whisk to combine.
- In a smaller mixing bowl, combine the milk, banana, eggs, coconut oil, and vanilla. Whisk until blended, then stir into the dry ingredients.
- Reserve about ½ cup of the berries for topping the baked oatmeal, then gently stir the rest into the batter. Spoon into the greased cake pan. Scatter the remaining berries across the top, and additional chopped pecans if desired.
- Bake for approximately 45 minutes, until the top is cooked and golden. Remove your baked n’oatmeal from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before serving.
The baked oatmeal dish looks amazing. I could eat that right now. The recipe seems very easy too. I am a big oatmeal eater so I will have to try doing this bake. The pictures of the falls are beautiful too.
The recipe is super easy… As soon as I finish a batch I want to whip up another. <3
I don’t know if this posts makes me want want to go on a hike more or make the baked oatmeal first! Gorgeous pictures, I can’t wait to go back to California!
Make the baked n’oatmeal AND go hiking!
This looks delicious and very filling! The perfect breakfast to make on a Saturday!
Saturday or any day! 🙂

Wow this sounds delicious! I love baked blueberry dishes like this, so cozy. Looks like you had a lovely trip. Such pretty scenery.
Grok GrubEmily @ Recipes to Nourish
It was gorgeousssssss…
This does look great but I do not see how much oatmeal.
Fresh Planet FlavorAnn
It’s not oatmeal, that’s why it’s called “n’oatmeal”!

This looks heavenly. I love prep ahead breakfasts!
Grok GrubJen | A Sip of Bliss
This is more a make-ahead than a prep-ahead breakfast (just make it on Sunday to enjoy throughout the week)!
Did I miss the oats? Why is it called oatmeal?
Fresh Planet FlavorMissy
It’s called n’oatmeal because it’s not oats, actually.
Oh now how amazing is this blueberry recipe?! I love anything with blueberries, so I know I’ll live this! And that waterfall is wonderful! Thank you for sharing this recipe and your experience!
My God! breath-taking pictures. I’m not oats lover myself but my husband is. I’ll definitely make this for him. Loved the recipe.
Grok GrubRatisha Goyal
Give this a whirl yourself since it actually contains NO oats!
marcia kirschbaumGrok Grub
OMG! SO happy to see that is contains no oats! Not because I don’t like them, but I re-read the recipe over and over, but didn’t see oats in the ingredients – even though it is in the title… thought that I was losing it! LOL Making it either way!
Grok Grubmarcia kirschbaum
It’s called “n’oatmeal” because it’s not oatmeal. 🙂
I love the combination of blueberry and oatmeal since I am big oatmeal fan.
It’s such a winner. 🙂
That oatmeal looks so comforting! As a fellow Bay Area resident, there really aren’t any signs of spring are there?? My parents are in Monterey County and it at least looks like spring there!
Oh, I’m sure spring has come to Monterey!
your pictures are gorgeous!! I love yosemite! And this bluberry oatmeal looks incredible!
Wow this looks delicious!! I love blueberries and pecans! So simple too 🙂 Thanks for sharing!
These photos are beautiful! This looks like a delicious recipe, I love blueberries and walnuts!
This version is made with pecans, but walnuts would be tasty too!
What beautiful pictures. The oatmeal looks amazing!
Your photos are truly stunning! I love the idea of baked oatmeal… I will have to try this because blueberries are my absolute favorite!
Grok GrubNatasha Kingsbury
Blueberries make it so pretty and delicious!
What a wonderful hike! There is so much beauty on those hikes! Your n’oatmeal looks so yummy. Looks like a perfect balance for a breakfast that will stick with you for a while. Thanks for sharing.
Grok GrubJenn Slavich
This’ll fill you up for a while!
Love the hiking with the oatmeal. Great ideas. Can’t wait to try this recipe.
Warren @ Blog to Taste
Those pictures of Yosemite are gorgeous! I’ve actually been planning to make a trip down there soon. This post absolutely makes me want to go!! Also, you had me at something besides eggs for breakfast. I’ve been having hard boiled eggs for breakfast for like three weeks, so anything that could be new is greatly appreciated!! Thanks for sharing!
Carly @ Fitliving Eats
YUM! I love oatmeal, but have yet to try it baked. This one looks delicious with my favorite oatmeal flavors!
Amber @ Amber Lately
Outside of the vanilla, I can totally make this recipe while on the Whole30. I will be pinning this immediately. Thanks for sharing!
Grok GrubAmber @ Amber Lately
Oh, totally just leave the vanilla out, then!
Use vanilla bean powder at a 1:1 ratio rather than vanilla extract!
Fresh Planet FlavorMelissa
That worked well? Is it a stronger flavor?
Your photos are absolutely gorgeous! And that dish looks DELISH. Definitely going to give a try!
What a gorgeous area! And that blueberry oatmeal loos yummy!
This looks like a great weekend dish for the whole FAM! Healthy too.
Grok GrubMama Munchkin
Oh, I think kids would love it! A little bit soft, a little bit crunchy, a little bit sweet.
Love the breathtaking scenery of Yosemite and thanks for the recipe… It look soooo delicious!
Your pictures from Yosemite are beautiful! I love that place. And that baked oatmeal recipe/dish sounds so delicious.
Yosemite is now one of my favorite places on earth!
Looks great! Do you think flaked coconut would work instead of shredded?
I would pulse the flaked coconut in my food processor first to break it down into smaller chunks.
Can coconut milk be used instead of nut milk? Looks amazing! Can’t wait to try it!
Yep, coconut milk can be used for sure!
I love that there isn’t any actual oatmeal in this recipe, I’ve been looking for some breakfasts that I can make ahead for company, and this is exactly what I’ve been looking for – thanks for a great recipe! Your Yosemite pictures are gorgeous, I can’t wait to go someday!
This was surprisingly great! My husband liked it and my kids, 2 of which are teenagers and picky. It is so easy, smells great while it’s baking and tastes good warm or straight out of the refrigerator. I have made it twice in one week. I am always looking for alternatives to egg based recipes. This is wonderful!
“Surprisingly great”? Haha! I’ll take it. Glad your picky eaters enjoyed too…

Hi just made it 🙂 is 45 mns enough? I am using the fan to cook. Should it be wet? Is it because of the blueberries?
Fresh Planet FlavorCharlotte
You’re using the fan to cook? What does that mean?
I was wondering what the texture is like. It is cake like or is it pudding like?
Fresh Planet Flavortheresa henderson
Definitely more cake-like than pudding.
I don’t see oatmeal in this recipe anywhere. Are you suppose to use shredded unsweetened coconut or?
Looks amazing however, I’m confused as to what your recipe states ingredient wise.
Fresh Planet FlavorJessica
Shredded unsweetened coconut is what you use instead of oatmeal. That’s why it’s called “N’Oatmeal”… which stands for NOT OATMEAL.
JessicaFresh Planet Flavor
Oh okay! Thank you! Does it have a strong coconut flavor using that much then? I made it with regular oatmeal and the recipe is still amazing. Do you by chance know the calorie count on the recipe?
Fresh Planet FlavorJessica
I don’t think it does, but I may have skewed taste buds since I eat coconut very regularly!
Fresh Planet FlavorFresh Planet Flavor
I also do not track calories, so I am not quite sure of the count.
I’m following the AIP diet and I miss baked oats terribly. Do you think a gelatin egg would work to replace?
Fresh Planet FlavorJenni
Well… I have not tried it, or ever worked with gelatin eggs before. I think it is worth a try, though. 🙂

I’m going to be traveling and wondering if I could make this ahead and if it would need to be refrigerated? My thoughts are people make things like cookies and cakes all the time that have an egg or 2 in them and they don’t put those in the fridge…
Fresh Planet FlavorAmanda
The issue is with the goji berries… I have had a batch grow mold on the goji berries after a week of refrigeration, but this could have been simply due to a low-quality batch.
This looks dope as heck. Can you freeze it, do you know?
Why the banana? I hate them and wonder if I can sub for something else like apple sauce? This looks delish other than the banana.
I noticed only one person reported eating this. We made it. We ate it. It’s fantastic. Another Rachel recipe at the top of our list. I’m hoping I can get Rachel to make the pecan chocolate bars for us for our group birthday next month ; ) They look very tasty. But we may get something far fancier, knowing Rachel. Lucky us!
Fresh Planet FlavorCandace
Ha, wow thank you for the lovely compliment! Yes, we’ll see about the birthdays…
I loved this! My kids weren’t too crazy about it though. I think if I work with the ratios–maybe using one more egg and slightly less milk–they will like it more. I will definitely make it again, even if I’m the only one to eat it! I calculated the calories and net carbs, and I was pleasantly surprised. 🙂 Thanks for this recipe!
Fresh Planet FlavorSara
Hmmmm, thanks for the feedback! Was it too mushy?

This was great even though I forgot to buy banana for this and subbed applesauce. I also tried it cold with some coconut almond milk and a few additional blueberries and loved it! I felt like I was eating cereal which is something I really miss! Thank you for the recipe!
Hi! This looks delicious, I’m not paleo and I eat oatmeal all the time but it’s always great to switch things up! Do you think you could swap walnuts for pecans in this recipe? Just what I have on hand right now!
Fresh Planet FlavorLauren Wiggins
You can totally use walnuts instead. 🙂

Do you have the nutritional info?
Fresh Planet FlavorElayne
Yes, it’s up there in the recipe card.
Either I’m just using way different ingredients or not reading this recipe correctly but 8 servings of this for me was well over 45 cals per serving. Thanks for sharing the recipe. It’s in the oven now, hopefully it makes it worth the fat and carbs I wasn’t expecting to eat.
Fresh Planet FlavorNoonya
Thank you so much for bringing this to my attention. 45 calories per serving? Didn’t seem right, so I checked my nutrition facts calculator and I’d entered “serves 6-8” which was causing it to miscalculate. I changed it to “serves 8”, and the correct calories have populated: 301 per serving. I apologize for the error!
What is the carb value in this recipe? It’s missing from the nutrition facts. Thanks.
I made this today with homemade sausage patties. I’ve missed oats every morning since going grain/gluten free. This hit the spot!!! Do you think individual portions would freeze well?
Fresh Planet FlavorDawn
I think individual portions WOULD freeze well, for sure!
