 A dessert-like berry baked oatmeal is perfect for cold winter days.
It can be hard to eat healthy food in the winter sometimes. It’s cold outside, and nothing is better when it’s cold than a cheesy casserole or soup.

So I often find myself trying to reset my diet around this time of year. Nothing new I suppose. This year, in addition to trying to come up with dessert-like healthy foods, I recently signed up for Daily Harvest. If you’re unfamiliar, it’s a service that delivers plant-based smoothies, grain bowls, flatbreads, and more. It’s all super easy to prepare, and pretty delicious — the smoothies are my fave.

But this baked oatmeal is always my go-to when I need a reset. It’s healthy, filling, and easy to make. It’s also perfect for busy weeks because I can make a batch and eat it for 3 or 4 days. So it’s nice to be able to not have to think about food.
You can also customize it however you want. This recipe is the way I like it best, but feel free to swap the nuts, spices, or even fruits. I usually use whatever dairy-free milk I have, so oat, almond, or soy works. But dairy works too. Just don’t skip the crunchy sugar top.
My favorite way to eat this is with some vanilla yogurt on top. Usually, Siggis because it’s high in protein and lower in sugar. But whatever you like works. I add a splash of milk the second day if it seems dry, and just reheat in the microwave.
This is the perfect winter breakfast — cozy, warm, and filling. Oh, and did I mention, it definitely tastes like a berry crumble?
