A simple berry oatmeal breakfast bake full of oats and nutritious fruit perfect to make ahead for busy weekday mornings, or to enjoy fresh out of the oven on those slow weekend mornings that are few and far between.
I received Love Grown Super Oats as part of an ongoing partnership. I was not compensated for my time, and the opinions and recipe are my own! 🙂
Happy Friday, friends!
I am officially in school mode. The weather has cooled down a bit here in Denver, and the crisp morning air is pretty refreshing. While I LOVE summertime, the chilly weather is a nice change of pace. It was 48 degrees when I went for my run yesterday morning! While that temp is great for running, I was a tad chilly the rest of the day. Time to get out the sweaters…
Anyways, I’m getting through the hustle and bustle of school by prepping and planning (two of my FAV things to do). I made this Berry Oatmeal Breakfast Bake to have for quick and easy breakfasts. The way this breakfast bake works for me is that I cook it up on Sunday, portion it out into smaller containers and then Brian and I have grab and go morning meals Monday through Friday. PERFECTION!
Since I’m totally in school mode, I’ve been thinking a lot about when I actually used to go to school in a classroom (I’m a distance student). Remember on the first day of school when the teacher would go around the classroom and have everyone share some fun facts about themselves? I feel like most people DREADED those “icebreakers”, but to be honest I thought they were pretty fun. I really enjoy hearing other people’s stories, and I liked sharing things about myself that may not typically come up in conversation, ya know?
Well, in the spirit of “back to school” I’m going to attempt to conjure up 10 fun facts about me that go beyond the recipes and the workouts here on the blog.
And as a favor: I’d love to learn some fun facts about all of you in the comments section!
- I was born in Grand Rapids, MI but grew up in Fort Wayne, IN.
- In high school I was part of our competitive show choir (yep, just like Glee!) all four years.
- In school my worst subject was PE…ha! Yeah, I’m not that great at sports and in my school it was more about the sports rather than just moving and loving your body.
- Six of my best friends and I started a singing group in high school and we performed around Fort Wayne.
- As a child I was in LOVE with the show ER, so naturally I thought I wanted to be a doctor. Eventually, I realized I wanted to act like a doctor on a TV show rather than actually become one.
- I love scary movies, gory tv shows, medical dramas, and things with all the blood and guts, but when it comes to real life I get queazy just THINKING about someone undergoing surgery, an injury, or anything of that nature. (hence why I would not make a good doctor…)
- Remember how I said I wasn’t so great at sports ^^ my first ever email address was
- I want to publish a book someday, possibly a cookbook…lots of ideas.
- I broke my arm when I was 12 while riding an electric scooter.
- I ADORE eating warm oatmeal for breakfast, especially on cool and crisp fall mornings. (I also love smoothies 😉 )

When Brian and I first met, he wasn’t much of an oatmeal person. Actually, he wasn’t much of a breakfast person (gasp!). Both of those facts quickly changed, and the previous non-oatmeal lover loves this breakfast 🙂
