Strawberries and Cream Baked Oatmeal

Strawberries and Cream Baked Oatmeal

Strawberries and Cream Baked Oatmeal is like a gourmet grown up version of those little packets of strawberry and cream oatmeal.

But this baked oatmeal is not just for grown ups, it is for kids of all ages. This is a baked oatmeal recipe that everyone will enjoy.

Strawberries and Cream Baked Oatmeal Recipe

I came up with this recipe years ago when I had a bowl of overripe strawberries staring at me when I opened the fridge. I did not want to throw them out, but I was not sure of how I wanted to use them either.

Baked oatmeal is a favorite in our house, so I instantly thought a new version of baked oatmeal would be perfect.

What is baked oatmeal? 

Baked oatmeal is a delicious breakfast that is a cross between a bowl of oatmeal and an oatmeal cake.

It is not mushy like a bowl of oatmeal. It is drier and cake like. My baked oatmeal recipes have converted many oatmeal haters into oatmeal lovers.

Can I make baked oatmeal ahead of time? 

Yes, you can! Baked oatmeal reheats well. I almost always make two pans of baked oatmeal so that we can reheat it for several days for breakfast. 

Can I freeze baked oatmeal? 

Yes, baked oatmeal freezes well. I have shared all kinds of tips for freezing baked oatmeal. One of my favorite ways to freeze it is to make baked oatmeal muffins and then freeze the muffins.

  1. Did i miss when you add the strawberries?

    • Sorry about that. I just fixed it. You add them at the very end. You stir all the ingredients together well then carefully stir in the strawberries, then you bake it. Thanks for letting me know I missed that..

  2. Awesome, Lynn!! What a great combination.

  3. Hi, Lynn. Just want you to know we never had baked oatmeal before we tried your recipe for the apple cinnamon flavor, and now we have baked oatmeal in our house at ALL TIMES! (Blueberry and Apple Cinnamon) I was so excited to see this recipe posted today and will DEFINITELY be making it soon. Thank you so much for sharing. You are one of the bloggers I have followed since fall 2009 when our son was diagnosed with Celiac disease. I have used countless numbers of your recipes, and they always get rave reviews.

    • Thank you so much for letting me know. I love sharing recipes like this that are regular food that can easily be made gluten free. I am so glad your family enjoys the baked oatmeals!

  4. This looks great! Do you think you could use old fashioned oats instead?

  5. I, too, had a bunch of strawberries in the fridge that were about to go…saw this post and had to make this for dinner. Absolutely delicious, and I am not a fan of oatmeal (though everybody else at the house loves it in any form). Thank you so much for sharing.

  6. Would frozen strawberries work? Any tips?

  7. Loved it! I ate it for breakfast then snuck some after dinner while my hubby and kids were at the pool.

  8. FABULOUS! Just made this for our family breakfast and it was a hit. Even from me, who isn’t an oatmeal person – I really enjoyed it.

  9. I have tried several baked oatmeals and my family won’t eat them, but they all absolutely lived this one! It is a definite keeper!!

  10. Thanks so much for sharing this – it was AWESOME!!! You could probably use any fruit too – I happened to be on strawberry overload so strawberries were perfect! Oh, I didn’t have any heavy cream, I used skim milk and it worked out just fine! I too an interested in whether frozen fruit would work as well.

    • I tried this recently with a different fruit and it worked great. I will be sharing it soon. And yes all milk works too the cream just makes it richer and creamier. I am glad you enjoyed it.

  11. Loved this so much!! I am loving your baked oatmeal! I am going to try with raspberries next….I have some to use up!

  12. LOVE this recipe; so yummy! Can I use frozen strawberries insead?

  13. Melissa Herrin says

    Can I omit the salt? My husband is on a low sodium.

  14. What are the calories, fats, etc?

  15. Danielle L Zecher says

    This is my new favorite breakfast! I can’t believe hoe incredibly delicious this is! Thanks for sharing such a great recipe. I’m thinking about freezing a few batches of this while strawberries are in season. Would it freeze well? If so, do you bake and then freeze, or bake after freezing and defrosting?

  16. Would the bake time be the same for a half batch? Or should I just go by what it looks like? Thanks!

    • If you make a half batch and make it in an 8×8 or that type of square pan I would probably cook it about 5 minutes less and check it then. It has been awhile since I made a small batch, but I think it took a few less minutes to bake it. I hope that helps and I hope you enjoy it!

  17. Couldn’t believe that oatmeal could taste this good. I had some for dinner the night I made it, for breakfast the next day, and I took some as my after-lunch snack one day too!

    • I am so glad you liked it. Thanks for letting me know you enjoyed it. This is one of my favorite baked oatmeal recipes to make.
