One of your favorite (and my favorite recipes) on Family Fresh Cooking is Blueberry-Coconut Baked Steel Cut Oatmeal.
When you have great success it makes sense to repeat it with somethin’ similar but a smidge different. Strawberry Baked Steel Cut Oatmeal is a fine example as to how to make this happen.
It is lovely to wake up to a delicious breakfast…one that is prepared way before you need it. No matter which way you go ~ blueberry or strawberry you will be very pleased.
If you bake this oatmeal the night before then all you need to do is simply reach into your fridge, take a scoop and re-heat.
Don’t forget a giant pot of coffee too.
This oatmeal will last a few days in the fridge….perfect for busy school, camp & work days.
An energy packed breakfast for folks on the go.
Strawberry lovers ~ you will be very grateful for this recipe.

- 1 1/2 cups (260 grams) Steel Cut Irish Oats
- 1/2 teaspoon ground Ginger
- 1/2 teaspoon fine Sea Salt
- 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
- 4 cups (950 ml, 32 ounces) unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
- 2 cups (480 ml, 16 ounces) light unsweetened Coconut Milk
- 1 1/2 (240 grams) cups fresh Strawberries, chopped
- 3 droppers full Vanilla Stevia Drops or your favorite natural sweetener to taste
- Cooking Spray
- 2 cups (360 grams) fresh or frozen Strawberries
- 1 tablespoon Water
- Sweetener of choice: add to taste if needed
- Toasted Nuts
- Coconut Flake
- Whipped Cream (vegan or not)
- dried and fresh Strawberries
- Pre heat oven to 350 degrees F with the rack in the center. Lightly coat a 13X9X2" inch baking dish with cooking spray. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl adding strawberries last. Sweeten to taste (I used 2 droppers full of vanilla stevia drops.) Bake for about one hour. It will firm up even more over night in the refrigerator. Serve with strawberry sauce and nuts.
- Heat berries in a saucepan over medium high heat. Add water if using fresh strawberries. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer with the lid on. Berries will burst and become saucy. Let the sauce cool a bit. Purée in blender and add sweetener to taste if desired.
- For the sauce: You might not need any water if using frozen berries as they have a lot of water in them all ready. If you need to thicken your sauce you can use some pectin, arrowroot or strain it in a fine mesh sieve. Here is a great post about how to thicken your fruit jam/sauce
