Monday’s are always the hardest day of the week for me. I am sure I am not alone in this. One way to lighten Monday’s burden is to be as prepared for the week as I can.

Today we started our Monday with this lovely Oatmeal bake and somehow the day started out smoother with this little treat. This also makes a great dish for a potluck brunch or a late breakfast after Church on sundays. . 

What You Will Need To Make This Cherry Oatmeal Bake Recipe:

½ cup coconut oil (110g)

2 cups of old fashioned oats (160g)

For the sweetener you can either do ½ cup packed brown sugar (110g) or ½ cup maple syrup (160g)

1 egg

a pinch of salt

1 tsp vanilla (4 g)

3 cups of whole milk or any type of milk you like (730g)

2 cups of pitted whole cherries (frozen or fresh) (280g)

Directions:

In a medium bowl mix the milk, egg, brown sugar, maple syrup, salt, and vanilla.

Allow the milk mixture to come to room temp before adding the coconut oil. Otherwise it will clump up. If this happens, it’s ok as it will melt again once baked.

Lastly, mix in the oats and pour into a baking dish. Cover with plastic and place in the fridge overnight. 

When ready to bake, pour in the cherries and mix them around so they are evenly distributed.

Bake at 350°F/177°C for approximately 45-50 minutes or until the top is golden.

Serve alone or with cream and butter.

FAQ for Cherry Oatmeal Bake Recipe

What other berries can be used?

Any! I have ued blackberries, strawberries and blueberries for this recipe. I would also use raspberry or a mixed berry as well. All taste delicious.

Do I have to soak the oats overnight or can I make this the same morning?

You can totally make this the same morning you are serving it. It is a very versatile recipe. I have done it many times without any taste differences. I would just mix it all up while the oven heats and bake it like normal.

If you make this recipe and love it, I would love it if you would come back and give it 5 stars!
