II. Ingredients for Mixed Berry Baked Oatmeal
Rolled oats are the base ingredient for baked oatmeal. They are a whole-grain cereal that is high in fiber and nutrients, making them a great choice for a healthy breakfast.
Milk is added to the oatmeal mixture to give it a creamy texture and to add some protein and calcium to the dish. You can use any type of milk you like, including cow’s milk, almond milk, or soy milk.
Eggs are another key ingredient in baked oatmeal. They help to bind the oatmeal mixture together and provide some protein to the dish.
D. Brown Sugar
Brown sugar is used to sweeten the oatmeal mixture. You can adjust the amount of sugar to your taste, or substitute with a natural sweetener like honey or maple syrup.
Vanilla extract is added to the oatmeal mixture to give it a sweet and fragrant flavor. You can also use other extracts, like almond or coconut, to change the flavor of the dish.
Baking powder is used to give the baked oatmeal a light and fluffy texture.

Mixed berries, like blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries, are added to the oatmeal mixture to give it a burst of flavor and to add some antioxidants to the dish.
