Baked Blueberry Cherry Pecan Oatmeal

  • 2 ½ cups uncooked regular rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • ⅓ cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted, divided
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries, divided
  • 1 cup chopped fresh cherries, divided
  • 1 cup pecans

Preheat the oven to 375°F. Stir together the oats, baking powder, cinnamon, and ginger in a large bowl. Stir together the milk, syrup, vanilla, egg, and 3 tablespoons of the melted butter in a separate bowl. Add the oat mixture to the milk mixture; stir to combine. Fold in half of the blueberries and cherries.

Spoon the mixture into an 11 x 7-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Top the dish with the pecans and the remaining blueberries and cherries. Bake the dish in the preheated oven until the oats are set and golden, 35 to 40 minutes.

Remove the baking dish from the oven. Drizzle the top with the remaining 3 tablespoons of melted butter. Serve the oats in shallow bowls; drizzle each serving with heavy cream and maple syrup, if desired.
