It’s rhubarb season and I’ve always loved the combination of strawberries and rhubarb in pies and crumbles. One of my favorite baked oatmeal recipes that I LOVE to bring to potlucks or serve for brunch is Baked Oatmeal with Bananas and Blueberries, so after my friend Raquel asked me how strawberry rhubarb would taste, I immediately started experimenting. Another easy baked oatmeal recipe I love for the fall is Baked Oatmeal with Pumpkin and Banana.

For this recipe, I loved the combination strawberries and rhubarb, especially when I added the ripe bananas, I felt they added an extra sweetness to the tart rhubarb without having to add more honey. I also love that this baked oatmeal with fruit can easily be made gluten free, dairy free and with any fruit combinations.

I think this would be wonderful for a Mother’s Day brunch; six servings is very generous, especially if you have other options on the table.

Is Baked Oatmeal Healthy?

Oats are a whole grain that contain a huge source of nutrients that we need for healthy body. This includes important vitamins such as B1, B3, B5, and B6 as well as minerals including Manganese, Magnesium, Iron, Copper, Zinc and a variety of antioxidants. Oats are also super high in fiber and protein compared to other grains which can keep you feeling full longer. This allows for tons of benefits such as lowering blood sugar, weight loss, and lowering cholesterol. So no matter how you make your oats as oatmeal, baked oatmeal, or other baked goods, they are one of the healthiest foods to eat.

  1. This really is like eating dessert for breakfast – in the best way! By far my favorite baked oatmeal recipie I’ve made! I used old fashioned oats and pecans because I had them on hand but otherwise followed the recipie. YUM!

  2. I make baked oatmeal every weekend – portion it out and have as a week night “dessert” served with a little bite of Greek yogurt and a small topping of Reddi Whip (I can’t help myself 😋). I love all of your recipes, this is my fourth variation and I think this one is my favorite. Wow Gina!! This one is wonderful.

  3. Made this for the first time and as soon as it was finished I made another. This recipe is very simple and it is so delicious.

  4. This was pretty good, it was a filling breakfast, I added yogurt with a drizzle of honey to the top. I doubled the oat topping because I wanted more of an oatmeal serving than a crumble and it kept the topping crisper which I liked. I think the bananas distract a bit from the strawberry flavor because they are a strong taste. I might leave them out next time. But I’d make this again.

  5. I LOVE that this has no flour and no sugar and still tastes delicious! I think the bananas are the secret. Great idea! Thank you!

  6. I’ve been making this without the banana because I don’t really care for them, and I don’t miss them at all. The 1/3 cup honey is right on the edge of being too sweet- for out of season berries it’s alright, but now that I’ve got local berries that are intensely sweet I use less honey so it’s not overwhelming. The baked oatmeal topping is absolutely delicious. I agree with another commenter that this is much more of a crisp than a baked oatmeal, but not in a bad way. Goes very well with plain greek yogurt for breakfast. The 1/6 slices are alright for size but I’m going to start cutting it in four pieces, as it’s just a more realistic portion size for me and my partner, and still very reasonable with calories. Lastly – I’ve made it with almonds on top, pecans on top, and nothing on top. All three times have been great. Just use whatever you have.

  7. Is this come out soft like a cobbler, or can you cut it into squares? I’m looking for something that’s kind of portable.

  8. I make this all the time. I add some plain Greek yogurt for breakfast and I’ll also serve it for dessert with some vanilla yogurt   

  9. I dislike bananas, so I made this with extra strawberries and rhubarb instead. It was delicious, but it’s not a baked oatmeal. It’s a crisp. I liked it better than the Skinnytaste Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp recipe. I would make this again as a dessert and use a little less honey in the filling.

    I adore rhubarb so I had to make this! I agree with the other posts, this is dessert, not breakfast. Love that there wasn't any sugar in it. I used half honey half maple syrup. Omitted bananas and tripled the rhubarb since I'm a little (lot) obsessed with it. 🙂 I'm going to use the filling in a pie next time and omit the oatmeal/nut layer. Filling was awesome!

    1. Anon, I couldn't find rhubarb at my Safeway either (seems like whenever I actually want it they don't have it, and whenever I don't need it I see it there). I'm trying this recipe with 2 bananas instead of 1 in place of the rhubarb. I'm assembling the wet and dry ingredients tonight and will bake it tomorrow morning. I'll let you know how it goes :-). I can't see how strawberry-banana oatmeal could turn out poorly! I'm expecting delicious results.

    Should left overs be refrigerated or are they ok on the counter covered, like a pie or cake?

  12. Made this today for breakfast. It was good but a little too sweet for breakfast. It tasted more like a cobbler to me. It would be perfect for dessert.

  13. Made this on Sunday and have now had it for breakfast the past three days. I used half regular honey and half orange infused honey and instead of of almonds I used pecans (what I had on hand). Another incredible recipe Gina and I think my new favorite breakfast!!

  14. Its so yummy! Will have to share with my mom. Is it suppose to be quite soupy on the bottom? Ill be making again with modifications eg more oatmeal 🙂

  15. I made this & shared with two friends. We all LOVE it & it just makes my mouth water thinking about it. Keep the fantastic recipes coming Gina & thank you!!

  16. This was so yummy! I added about a tablespoon of low sugar strawberry jam to the fruit mixture. It really gave the strawberry flavor a punch!

  17. This looks amazing! Would it freeze well? I cook mainly for 1 so would love to be able to have a few portions over the week and then enjoy the rest later.

    I made this for Mother's Day and everyone loved it, they couldn't tell it was a "skinny" recipe, lol.
    A girl I work with has lots of fresh rhubarb in her garden and shares it with all us so I'm printing off several copies of this recipe to pass out to my co-workers.
    Thanks for all you do, Gina!

  19. Had this for breakfast today. I absolutely love it. Want to sneak into the kitchen for a second serving.

  20. Made this last night with the rhubarb that came in my first CSA box of the season with the intention of eating it the rest of the week. Reheated this AM. Very tasty and bet it is even better right out of the oven! Had with a little ff vanilla yogurt. Great combo!

    I made this yesterday. My almost 3 year old said "I love this momma!" The only other thing he tells me he loves is!

  22. I just made this today, and wow… Amazing! I love baked oatmeal recipes, but this one is by far my favorite. Thanks for the recipe!

    1. I actually made it with regular oats. I cooked it a little longer, using the directions from a different recipe I've made in the past. Keep the temperature the same, cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes, then take the foil off for another 15 minutes. Came out perfectly!

    2. I just made this tonight and it was a big hit for our dessert (my partner ate seconds and said he didn't care how many points it was haha). Thanks Gina. I did substitute agave for the honey and cut back on the nuts to shave it to 5 points per serving (weigh-in day tomorrow). I think in the future I will leave out the bananas and add more rhubarb — I couldn't really taste it (though I've never eaten it before, so don't know what it tastes like). You keep coming up with winners!

      just picked up some rhubarb at the farmers market this morning (strawberries are obviously always in my fridge when they're in season)…making this tomorrow morning! 🙂

  26. Can this be made with just Strawberries I have a mountain full of them..I never have tasted Rhubarb or used it..It makes me nerves because of the poison leaves…

  27. I've been looking to try baking with rhubarb and this looks like the perfect recipe to try out first!

  28. I am so badly craving rhubarb and this oatmeal looks like just the treat to satisfy my craving!

  29. Prepared this ahead of time, put in the fridge for the night. Baked it in the morning as recipe said and it turned out wonderful!

    G'day! Love the combination of rhubarb and strawberries, TRUE!
    Baked oatmeal is a bonus on a busy morning too!
    What's On The List?

      1. Should I defrost my frozen rhubarb and strawberries first, or can they be used from frozen?

    I never ate rhubarb growing up, even though it was pink (my favorite color as a kid!). I first tried it on a volunteer trip to Alaska when one of the locals made a rhubarb cobbler, and I've been meaning to try making a rhubarb dish of my own ever since. That was almost 4 years ago… Your baked oatmeal looks so sweet and healthy; I'm sure it'd be a great first starting point for me!

  32. This sounds wonderful, perhaps minus the banana? I'm not a fan of ripe bananas, and they seem to dominate everything they are in.

    Can I make this the night before and store in the fridge and then stick it in the oven in the morning? Or would it get too soggy?

    This recipe makes me wish my rhubarb was ready for picking! Hopefully in another week or so it will be ready and I can make this. I have always loved strawberries and rhubarb, but interested in trying it with banana. Growing up, we always had strawberry/rhubarb jam, pie and cobbler. Yum!

      I used almond milk in the banana blueberry baked oatmeal and it was very tasty. Used egg substitute, too and the texture was fine. My husband loved eating dessert for breakfast!
