This Skillet Baked Oatmeal with Fresh Strawberries is a delicious way to start a weekend morning. It is a satisfying dairy-free, gluten-free, and hearty breakfast recipe that is very easy to make.
I love to make this Skillet Baked Oatmeal for our weekend breakfast. Everyone loves the fresh strawberries baked right into the cereal. To make it extra special, layer some fresh strawberries on top before bringing it to the table!

Making strawberries and cream oatmeal right at home
As a kid, I always loved those flavored packets of oatmeal. I especially loved the banana and the strawberries and cream oatmeal. However, those packets of prepackaged and flavored oats are not very frugal. Making your own homemade strawberries and cream oatmeal is far more affordable.
This Skillet Baked Oatmeal is made with a natural sweetener, which in my opinion, is better for you than sugar. It is a vitamin C packed breakfast that you can feel good about putting on the table for the family.
What you need to make this breakfast recipe

Whole Rolled Oats: Be sure the container says whole oats. I buy this brand in bulk as it is more affordable.
Golden Monkfruit or Maple Syrup: I have used both sweeteners. I come from a family of maple syrup producers, so I usually have plenty on hand. Maple syrup is great if you have it on hand. If you don’t have a problem with using brown sugar, you can substitute that here as well.
Strawberries: I always prefer fresh, but sometimes that is not possible. I keep a supply of frozen strawberries in my freezer and have substituted frozen for the fresh. The visual effect will be different, but the taste will be the same.
Cast Iron Skillet: I like to use cast iron because it heats evenly and is easy to use in the oven. You need an oven-safe skillet for this recipe because it is baked.
Make this recipe your way
Substitute any of your favorite fruits for the strawberries. We love to use canned peaches and blueberries as well
Substitute brown sugar for the maple syrup
Stir in a tablespoon of flax seed or chia seeds to boost the fiber.
Add 1/4 cup chocolate chips or sprinkle some on top after baking.
I use almond milk, which makes this recipe dairy-free. However, you can use regular milk in place of almond milk if you don’t have to be dairy-free.
