Servings 8


  • 2 cups Simple Truth Organic Rolled Oats
  • 1/2 cup Walnut Pieces
  • 1/2 - 3/4 cup Brown Sugar (divided, reserve 2 Tablespoons - 1/4 cup for topping. May substitute 100% real maple syrup)
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon (optional)
  • 2 cups Milk
  • 2 large Simple Truth Eggs
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla
  • 2 Tablespoons Melted Butter
  • 1 1/2 cups Fresh Fruit (optional: apples, raspberries, strawberries, blackberries, etc)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, stir together rolled oats, brown sugar, nuts, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.  Reserve 1/4 cup of brown sugar for the topping. 

  2. In another bowl, whisk together milk, eggs, and vanilla. In a small microwave-safe bowl, melt butter in the microwave.
  3. Add all ingredients together and place in an 8 or 9-inch baking dish. If you want to add fruit to the baked oatmeal, place it at the bottom of the baking dish. Some of the best fruits to use are -- apples, raspberries, strawberries, blackberries, etc. I would suggest using about 1 1/2 cups of fresh fruit.
  4. Sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup of brown sugar all over the top of the oatmeal. This helps to create a sugary crust when it is baked. Bake for 35-45 minutes. Once it is baked, top with fresh berries or your favorite fruits. Serve warm.
