Start Your Morning With This Baked Treat

Baked oatmeal with cherries and almonds? Sign us up.

With summer in full swing, we’re celebrating one of our favorite fruits: cherries. We’ve partnered with Sprouted Kitchen to bring you fresh recipes, ideas, and cooking tips. 

Some of the best dishes are total mash-ups. This one becomes a cross between a bowl of oats and a baked good, and the recipe is forgiving for whatever fruit is in season. It’s also a great meal to make for a crowd. 

Rolled oats have a lot of great fiber to help start your morning, and the nuts add some healthy fat and protein. The spiced milk mixture soaks into the oats to cook them in the oven, creating oats that can hold shape but are still tender. 



In our Double Wall Ovens, everything is perfectly baked thanks to Perfect Taste™ Dual Convection.

To get ahead the night before, you can prep both the wet and dry mix, and then bake it off in the morning. 

Cherry + Almond Baked Oatmeal

“This dish makes for delicious leftovers; it reheats well with a bit more milk added to keep it moist. I used nut milk—perfect for those trying to keep it dairy-free.” – Sara 

Servings: 6



2 cups milk

1/2 cup maple syrup

1 egg

3 Tbsp. melted butter

1/4 tsp. grated nutmeg

1 tsp. ground cinnamon

beans from one vanilla bean pod

1/2 tsp. sea salt


1 3/4 cups rolled oats

1 tsp. baking powder

1 cup toasted almonds, chopped

3/4 pound dark cherries, pitted and halved


turbinado sugar, for finishing

milk or cream for serving


Preheat the oven to 350° and generously butter an 8” baking dish. 

In a large mixing bowl, whisk the milk, maple, egg, butter, nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla beans, and salt together well. In another bowl, combine the oats, baking powder, half the almonds, and cherries.

Pour the oat and cherry mixture into the dish in an even layer. Pour the milk mixture over the oats, everything should be saturated, and then sprinkle the top with the remaining almonds and the turbinado sugar. Bake on the middle rack for 30 minutes, or until the liquid is mostly absorbed but still moist.

Serve each bowl warm with a little more milk or cream.
