  1. Prep: Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a 9×9-inch baking dish with cooking spray. 
  2. Dry Ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the oats, sugar, flaxseed, salt, baking powder, and cinnamon. Drizzle the melted coconut oil over the dry ingredients and stir until well combined.
  3. Wet Ingredients: In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk. 
  4. Combine: Add the egg mixture to the dry ingredients and stir. Add in the mixed fruit, dried cranberries, and pecans and stir until well combined. 
  5. Bake: Spread the mixture out evenly into the prepared baking dish. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until set in the middle.
  6. Serve: Serve warm in bowls with a little milk over the top.

Freeze For Later: Prepare according to directions but freeze the baked oatmeal before baking. Wrap tightly in a few layers of plastic wrap and one layer of foil. Place in the back of the freezer for up to 3 months.

Prepare From Frozen: Thaw in the fridge for 24 hours and bake according to directions. You can also defrost in the microwave and bake.


  • Dairy-Free Option: Use plain dairy-free milk in the recipe.
  • Gluten-Free Option: Make sure your oats say “gluten-free” on the package.
  • You can use whatever fruit you have! This recipe plays nice with them all.
  • Swap the white sugar for brown sugar
  • You can use quick oats instead of old fashioned oats in the recipe.
  • Because this recipe is so easy, it works great to double and freeze like we do in our 1 Hour Freezer Prep Sessions.
  • You can use almonds, pecans, or sunflower seeds.
