Yield 12 servings


  • 4 cups buttermilk (see notes for homemade substitute)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup oil (vegetable, canola, or coconut)
  • 4 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 cups chopped apples (see note)
  • 1 cup blueberries (see note)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9x13 baking dish.

  2. In a large bowl, add the buttermilk, sugar, eggs, and oil. Whisk to combine.

  3. Add the oats, baking powder and salt. Mix well.

  4. Add the apples and blueberries (or whatever fruit you desire) and stir gently. Pour into prepared pan. Note: If you are using frozen fruit place it on the bottom of the baking dish and pour the oat mixture over it so that the color doesn't bleed into the mixture.

  5. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until oatmeal is firm in the middle. Serve with whipped cream or yogurt.

Recipe Notes

FRUIT: You can use whatever fruit you like even frozen fruit. You can use strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, apples...you name it! Frozen fruit tends to bleed its color when it comes in contact with liquid so if using frozen fruit place it on the bottom of the pan and pour the oatmeal mixture over it.


To make homemade buttermilk you add 1 tablespoon of lemon juice or white vinegar to every cup of milk. Let mixture sit for 5 minutes or until milk appears slightly curdled. For this recipe you'll need 4 cups of milk and 4 Tablespoons of lemon juice or white vinegar.
