persimmon & grape baked oatmeal

Persimmons, red grapes, vanilla and cinnamon pair well in this flavorful baked oatmeal!




Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

In a medium sized or 8×8 baking dish, combine the oatmeal, cinnamon, cardamom and salt. Add in milk, syrup and vanilla, mix well. Add in persimmon, grapes and nuts, mix again. Bake in oven on middle rack or 35 – 40 minutes.

Serve warm with a splash or two of non-dairy milk over top. If you didn’t bake with the nuts in you may like to add a few over top before eating.

Serves 4 or 2 generously.


Sub in fresh cranberries for the grapes. Try using diced apples of choice in place of the persimmon. Use more of either of the fruits if you like.

You can see that I have changed the method. The new method will use less dishes and comes out just as good! I’ve found that there is no need to grease the baking dish. Enjoy the simpler version or use this old one if you prefer.
