Honey-Sweetened Cherry Pie Baked Oatmeal

I’m annoying myself with how many baked oatmeal recipes I post.

But since I’m all about self-compassion these days, I’m really not that annoyed with myself.  I am more just understanding of my love for baked oatmeal.

I was going to make this baked oatmeal in the same dish that I usually make baked oatmeal in, but then! THEN! I was like, “I should make this as pie-ish as possible.”

In other news (aka things you don’t really need to know, but I’m gonna tell you anyways).

Andrew and I recently downgraded our cable. Did I already tell you this? We now get only the basic cable channels. So we have like 5 channels. So far tv shows I miss include: The Pioneer Women and Million Dollar Listing. Since remodeling the kitchen I am so over HGTV.  The same thing happened when I bought my wedding dress…I ended up being so over Say Yes to the Dress.  And I still don’t enjoy Say Yes To the Dress.  Gosh.  I did not enjoy the wedding planning process.

Any who.

I tell Andrew now that we are saving money on TV, that means we have more money to invest in ordering lattes out at restaurants. He doesn’t see it that way, but I’m sure you do.

I really enjoy making breakfast at home 85% of the time, but I enjoy drinking lattes out 100% of the time.  I need a fancy espresso machine that makes epic steamed/foamy milk.

AND OOOOOHHHH.  This place by us has nitro coffee, which I’m pumped to try.

All that talk to say…you should make this baked oatmeal and serve it with a latte.  I preferred this recipe with a hot latte, but that’s just me.

For this oatmeal, into the pie dish goes a layer of baked oatmeal.  Then the cherry pie filling.  Then a sprinkle of chocolate chunks (if you want!). Then another baked oatmeal layer.  Bake it up.  And then please enjoy pie-ify-ing your breakfast.  I have been doing just that for the last 3 days and I haven’t gotten tired of this recipe yet.

Honey-Sweetened Cherry Pie Baked Oatmeal

Add pie to your breakfast routine.

Yield: 1, 9" pie

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 40 minutes

Total Time: 55 minutes


baked oatmeal
2 cups old-fashioned oats
1 cup milk
1/3 heaping cup mashed banana
3 tablespoons butter, melted
2 tablespoons honey
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
dash cinnamon

cherry pie filling
1 1/2 cup cherries, pitted
2 tablespoon honey
1/2 cup cold water
1 tablespoon cornstarch 

chocolate chunks


First make pie filling.  In a bowl, mix together cold water + cornstarch.  If you add cornstarch to hot water, you will end up with a globby mess.  Don't do that.  Stir cold water + cornstarch until cornstarch is dissolved.  Add cherries, honey and dissolved water + cornstarch mixture to a sauce pan.  Heat over medium-high heat for ~10 minutes, or until cherries start to break down.  While cherries are cooking, make your baked oatmeal batter.  

In a bowl, combine all baked oatmeal ingredients.  Pour half of the batter into our greased 9" pie dish.  Top with cherry filling.  If you want to add a handful of chocolate chunks, this is the time to sprinkle them on.  I added them and LOVED them.  Pour remaining oatmeal batter onto cherry filling to completely cover filling.  Bake for 30-40 minutes, or until top of oatmeal is JUST set.  The mixture may feel a bit jiggly, due to the cherry filling not completely setting.  Allow to cool at least 15 minutes before slicing.

there’s layers to this game, players. (name that song.)


  1. This looks SO good!  Beautiful pics and love the pie shape.  That red…gorgeous

  2. I made baked oatmeal in a pie dish awhile ago and it really makes it feel fancier and more desserty :) I just bought my husband an espresso maker (with a milk frother!) for his 30th so I’m hoping we can start experimenting with homemade lattes!

  3. I am going to shock you and say I’ve never been a cherry pie person, but anything involving fruit and oatmeal oh my gosh this sounds absolutely amazing! I wish I could have pieces upon pieces of this now, which is totally making the plain oatmeal I packed for seem so um gross! Seriously can’t wait to try this layered baked oatmeal idea out!

    • I’m so not a cherry pie person either! Or I thought I wasn’t until I tried my mother-in-law’s cherry pie…that thing is incredible! This breakfast version is way fun too though:)) You may be a cherry pie person after all!

  4. I think saving money on cable DOES mean more lattes out! ;) This looks incredible! I’m so not tired of your baked oatmeal recipes – keep them coming!

  5. My only dilemma right now is if I should first make this or your Grapefruit Baked Oatmeal????

  6. Several things: 1. I’m not mad that you posted another oatmeal recipe :-) . Makes my mornings a whole lot more enjoyable 2. Welcome to the world of good tv only in the morning, at 4:00 (Ellen!!!), and from 6-9…be careful about watching Criminal Minds…3. I bought an aeropress to make my lattes and absolutely LOVE it. It was super affordable and it’s really easy to use. Plus, it’s portable, makes regular coffee as well, and it takes up barely any space!

  7. We just recently moved into our house and also downgraded our cable. It’s still great for some of my favorite abc/nbc/cbs shows, but other than that I am out of luck. I mostly miss not having TLC. BUT… instead we have been binge-watching old TV shows and shows on Netflix. I’m not sure if that’s much better than our original TV obsession, but it’s a helluva a lot cheaper!

  8. I LOVE Million Dollar Listing! That would be a tough one to go without.  Such a huge sacrifice def calls for more lattes :) I feel like baked oatmeal needs to be in my life more often. This looks delish! 

  9. We don’t have cable, so we usually end up not watching TV at all, we just watch Netflix. Though sometimes I turn on one of the basic channels for my dog and end up getting into whatever is on!
    This looks freaking incredible, by the way. I’m definitely making it soon!

  10. I’m just about to begin making the pie, but noticed there isn’t an oven temperature listed. I guess I’m assuming 350F…? Thanks in advance!

  12. Love oatmeal so much. What can I replace the Bananas with?  In other recipes I replace with applesauce but I am not liking the taste with baked goods at times.  Any suggestions?  Thank you!
