Take just 15 minutes to assemble this breakfast stunner and then sit back and let the oven do the rest of the work. A custard-like mix made with eggs and milk, and flavored with maple syrup, vanilla, and nutmeg transforms oats into a fluffy baked delight. Mixed berries turn jammy as they bake and crunchy sliced almonds add another layer of texture and flavor. Serve this for brunch at home or make it to enjoy throughout the week. Pro tip: Use whichever berries you have on hand, even frozen.


  • 3 large eggs

  • 3 ½ cups whole milk

  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup, plus more for serving

  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • ¼ cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted and cooled, divided, plus more for greasing

  • 4 cups old-fashioned rolled oats

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt

  • 2 cups mixed berries, sliced if strawberries

  • ½ cup sliced almonds, lightly toasted


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Grease a 13-by-9-inch baking dish with butter. Whisk eggs, milk, syrup, vanilla, nutmeg, and 2 tablespoons melted butter in a large bowl. Add oats, baking powder, and salt; stir to combine. Transfer to baking dish; spread in a mostly even layer using a spatula. Top with berries and almonds.

  2. Bake until lightly golden and firm in center, 40 to 45 minutes. Let rest for 10 minutes. Drizzle or brush with remaining 2 tablespoons melted butter. Serve with more syrup.
