Spiced Oven-baked Oats with Blueberries and Peaches

A great no-fuss weekend dish when having friends over for brunch. Serve with extra milk, cream or yoghurt. 


Serves: 6


2 cups jumbo rolled oats
2 tablespoons chia seeds
½ cup golden raisins 
or sultanas
1 teaspoon each ground cinnamon and freshly 
grated nutmeg
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 litre milk of your choice
1 large egg, size 7 
2 tablespoons nut butter (I used cashew nut butter)
2 tablespoons honey
425-gram tin peach slices, 
well drained 
1 cup blueberries, fresh 
or frozen (if frozen don’t thaw first)



You will need a 30cm ovenproof sauté pan or baking dish.

Preheat the oven to 180°C fan bake.

Place the oats, chia seeds, raisins, spices and salt in a large bowl.

Whisk the milk, egg, nut butter and honey together until well combined then pour onto the oats.

Stir together and pour into the pan or dish. Top with the peach slices and blueberries. Bake for about 35 minutes, or until the oats are tender.
