Hello hello!! I hope everyone’s Thursday is going well!
I’m sorry today’s post is so late! I hadn’t originally planned on posting anything today, but then I ate my oatmeal this morning and changed my mind. This one is a GEM, and I want to share this recipe with everyone!
I’m pleasantly surprised at how good it tasted, since this is only the second oatmeal recipe I have developed myself. I sure as heck didn’t come up with the delicious flavor combination of strawberries and cream, but whoever that was, I salute you.
Imagine a warm summer morning and a fresh bowl of juicy, sun-ripened strawberries topped with rich whipped cream. Now imagine all of that warmth and rich flavor in a bowl of oatmeal.
But wait….BAKE IT INSTEAD.
Your taste buds will thank you. Mind=blown.
Now I did find a recipe for Strawberries N’ Cream Baked Oatmeal by Driscoll’s, but let’s compare nutrition facts, shall we?

Let me just drop my jaw in horror…..there’s no way that a healthy breakfast like oatmeal should EVER be turned into something that fattening.
My breakfast kept me satisfied until lunch and was a sweet way to start the day! 🙂 Here you go folks!
Strawberries N’ Cream Baked Oatmeal
- Serves: 1
- Prep Time: 10 min
- Cook Time: 18-20 min
- Total Time: 28-30 min
1/2 cup plain, nonfat Greek yogurt
1 egg white (or liquid egg white from the carton)
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp natural peanut butter (for healthy fat!)
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 packet of Stevia, sweetener of choice, or 2 tsp sugar (optional)
pinch of salt
5-6 small to medium strawberries, hulled and quartered (fresh or frozen)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and grease a small ramekin or single-serving bake dish. Set aside.
- In a medium bowl, add Greek yogurt, egg white, vanilla extract, peanut butter, and mix well to combine.
- Next, add in rolled oats, baking powder, cinnamon, optional sweetener, and pinch of salt. Mix everything until well incorporated.
- Slice the strawberries up and throw them in the bowl. Fold the mixture a few times to incorporate the strawberries evenly. (If the mixture is too thick, add in about a tsp of your favorite milk).
- Pour the mixture into the prepared ramekin and bake for about 18-20 minutes. (Check in around 15 minutes to see how the top feels).
- ENJOY 🙂
