Baked Berries and Crunchy Oats
baked berries and crunchy oats

A delicious way to eat berries and oats for breakfast. A crunchy golden top with a sweet and juicy berry base. This an easy recipe to mix and match to work with what berries you like or have and top with healthy spiced oats and nuts. This could be prepared the night before ready to bake in the morning. Any leftovers are still tasty and cold. I don't add anything when I serve it, but if you'd like add yoghurt or extra fruit like sliced banana. Adaptable for gluten-free and vegan diets. Also, this could be made nut free but leaving the nuts out and just making this with seeds.

Yes, it can be stored in the fridge for up to 5 days. Or portion leftovers and place in a container and freeze for up to 3 months. Defrost before serving and reheat in the microwave for 2 minutes or warm up in the oven for 20 minutes covered with foil.
