Strawberry Banana Coconut Baked Oatmeal (Vegan, Gluten-Free)

Sharon Palmer

Baked oatmeal is oh-so easy, and oh-so special. All you have to do is stir up an oatmeal batter, pour it in a baking dish, and bake into golden perfection. However, some baked oatmeal recipes are less than healthy, with oodles of added sugars and fats. This Strawberry Banana Coconut Baked Oatmeal recipe skips out on all of those unwanted ingredients by boosting up the naturally sweet fruits and coconut to add wholesome good flavors. Just mix it up in minutes, pop it in the oven, then slice into squares.

This recipe is perfect for a weekday breakfast, or weekend brunch. Kids and adults alike love it! My whole family loves it. Best of all, you can make up a batch and then microwave it for a healthy breakfast on the run.

If you don’t have fresh strawberries, use frozen strawberries. You can also swap out the berries for other seasonal fruit on hand, such as peaches, apples, or plums. It’s going to be a great day!

Step-By-Step Guide:

Stir together oats, baking powder, cinnamon, flax seeds, salt (optional), and coconut.
Mix in coconut milk, vanilla, maple syrup, bananas, and strawberries. Pour into a baking dish.
Garnish with some of the strawberries and bananas.

  1. Can this oatmeal dish be made with unsweetened vanilla almond milk instead of coconut milk?

    • Yes, you can use almond milk instead of the coconut milk, but it won’t be quite as rich, as the lite coconut milk offers a little bit of fat to the recipe.

    • You don’t blenderize the bananas in step 4; you fold sliced bananas in so that there are pieces of bananas and strawberries, reserving some for the topping.
