Autumn Baked Oatmeal Squares with Mulberries-Recipe

This article was sponsored by Made in Nature; all opinions are my own.

Well, it’s mid-October and I’m getting a ton of emails about healthy Halloween snacks and fall treats n’ breakfast ideas that can be enjoyed at home or on-the-go. So, today we’re going to dive into a quick n’ easy recipe that I’m literally dying to share with you.


Vegetarian Autumn Baked Oatmeal Squares with Mulberries

Well, because mulberries are quite possibly the greatest thing since…well, since I discovered the wonders of organic dried fruit! This past summer I found Made in Nature products popping up in all the health foods stores and I bought a few (or a ton of, hehe) bags of their dried fruits, which I’m obsessed with. Have I been living under a rock? These organic goodies are so good- I’m a little bit sad that I’ve been missing out on them the last few years. But I’ll get over it. You probably have heard me talking about their ridiculously outrageous flavor on Instagram.

It’s not everyday you come across a brand of dried fruits and snacks that don’t taste bland! I know you hear me loud n’ clear on that note, right? I’m so over buying a bag of raisins or dried cranberries that are made with refined sugar and soy and junk. Ewwww. Just ewwww. Like why can’t people just make real dried fruit from….dried fruit and naturally sweet ’em up with things like apple juice. Clever idea, right?



Let’s move onto to the baked oatmeal that I created for you.  It’s a bit different than the baked oatmeal recipe (which happens to be the most popular recipe on my website!) I whipped up a few years ago. This one is going to blow your mind.

When you welcome in the most incredibly plump n’ flavorful dried cherries and mulberries and toss them with oats and coconut milk for a creamy breakfast, snack or dessert without ANY refined sugar. Yay!

Go ahead. Jump up and down. Dance. Smile. Do all that…..because I know you’re excited!


I’ve honestly never made a recipe that was so moist and flavorful in my life. I’m really not lying…these squares are the perfect nibble as you head out the door for work or served on a lazy Sunday brunch.



You can also whip them up for a snack (kids L-O-V-E them) anytime of the day or make a batch to serve as a healthy dessert right before the sugar-bomb called Halloween comes into your home!

As for me…well, my Trick n’ Treaters will be getting these squares wrapped in parchment paper with pretty twine. They’re going to need something fabulous to hold them over that’s not loaded with sugar and chocolate. But I’m also saving a bunch for myself to enjoy for breakfast this week.

  • 2 Tbsp. ground flaxseeds
  • ¾ tsp. sea salt
  • ½ tsp. pumpkin pie spice

  1. 5 stars
    I made these today, I’ve managed to get some American measuring cups as the UK ones aren’t the same size and it turned out perfectly, very yummy. Love your recipes and your book is amazing, thank you Amie xx

  2. Looks yummy! I think these will work perfect for like a lunch snack. Have you tried using honey instead of maple syrup? Will it make a difference?

  3. These look so good. Is there a way to make them kinda hard like a crunchy granola bar? I know some people can adjust recipes but I’m really not very good at that.

    1. Thanks Sue; I haven’t tried that but I’m sure it would be delish. I like them softer! I have granola bars in my new cookbook though. xoxx

    1. Cindy,
      Full fat coconut milk isn’t the same consistency as almond milk since almond milk is so watery so it won’t work. You could try it but I’m not sure what it would turn out like. Might be more like a bread pudding than bars! xo

  4. Your Oatmeal with Mulberries looks Yummy! But for breakfast, how much protein is in them? I know based on my body I do best with bacon and eggs. It could be 3 in the afternoon before I look for lunch if I have eaten breakfast for *my* body. Any suggestions for beefing this up?

    1. Hi Elsa, I hear ya on that! I need lots to make a meal hearty. Yes, drizzle this with almond butter, coconut oil, coconut butter or add fresh bananas! xoox
