Nothing better than some fresh fruit in the morning!
This is a recipe for all the fruit lovers out there. It's baked oatmeal with (you guessed it!) strawberries and kiwi- a classic combo.
The bottom stays together as bread would and the overall texture is nice as it doesn't fall apart.
The recipe is quite simple; all it takes is mixing up a few ingredients (as one normally does to make oatmeal) and pouring them into a pan to bake in the oven.
Strawberry Kiwi Oatmeal Bread
- 1/2 cup oats (quick oats were used)
- 1/4 cup applesauce
- 1/4 cup milk or water (I used vanilla soy milk)
- sweetener of choice
- 1 sliced strawberry
- 1 sliced kiwi
Preheat oven to 385 degrees.
Combine dry ingredients, then add wet ingredients
Pour into a small loaf pan
Place strawberry and kiwi sliced on top and press down slightly
Cook for 20 minutes
Set oven to "high broil" for 3 more minutes
*Notes on Sweetener: I would recommend using 1 tsp honey, sugar, or Splenda. In this recipe, I used one packet of Truvia.

I really enjoyed making (and eating!) this recipe because of its pleasant taste and since it is quite photogenic!
