  • 300 g (10.5 oz) fresh strawberries - divided See Note 1
  • 2 ¼ cups (180 g) old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 ½ tablespoon chia seeds See Note 2
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 ¼ cups (560 ml) oat milk - dairy, soy or nut milk can be used. See Note 3
  • ¼ cup (60 ml) maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 teaspoon lemon zest
  • coconut oil - for greasing the baking dish.


  • Preheat your oven to 180 degrees C (355 F).
  • Lightly grease an 8 x 10 inch (20 x 25 cm) baking dish with coconut oil. 
  • Slice each strawberry into 3 or 4 pieces, depending on their size.
  • In a large bowl, add the rolled oats, chia seeds and baking powder, and stir.
  • To the oats, add the milk, maple syrup, vanilla and lemon zest and mix again until everything is well combined.
  • Add ¾ of the strawberries and stir.
  • Pour the mixture into your baking dish and top with the remaining strawberries, ensuring they are evenly distributed.
  • Bake for approximately 35 minutes, until the mixture is set and lightly golden brown. 
    Remove from the oven, and rest for 10 minutes before serving.
  • Serve with yoghurt, additional milk and syrup if you wish, or enjoy as is.


  1. Strawberries: I have used fresh strawberries, but you could also use frozen. You may need to add 5 minutes to the cooking time. The oatmeal may be a little flatter but will taste delicious all the same.
  2. Tablespoon: we use a standard Australian tablespoon which is 20 ml (4 teaspoons).
  3. Milk: use milk of your choice. I use almond or oat milk. Add more milk when serving if you prefer a thinner texture.
  4. Toppings: the toppings are optional (and are not included in the nutritional information).
