Fig and Cherry Baked Oatmeal

  • Total Time: 45 minutes
  • Yield: 6 servings 1x


  • 2 cups old fashioned oats (gluten free if necessary)
  • ½ cup walnuts
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 cups milk (I used So Delicious Unsweetened Vanilla Coconut Milk, use what you love)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste
  • 2 cups cherries, fresh and pitted or frozen and thawed
  • 4 fresh Mission figs, quartered


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place cherries in the bottom of an 8 inch square baking dish.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together oats, walnuts, baking powder, and cinnamon. This may also be combined in a zipper bag the night before.
  3. Add the milk and vanilla bean paste to the oat mixture and stir to combine. Pour over the cherries. Arrange the figs decoratively on top. Bake for 30-35 minutes, until lightly brown and bubbling. Serve warm. Oatmeal may be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. May be served cold or reheated in the microwave.
