A brekkie bake is perfect to have on hand for breakfast, a snack, or for a lunch box addition. To make it extra special, serve with a dollop of thick plain yoghurt and a sprinkle of cinnamon.

Cooking Tips for Brekkie Bake
The original recipe from Fiona @realfoodpathway on Instagram uses pears. I have used cherries however I am sure raspberries, blueberries, or chopped up apple would work equally as well.
I have used an ovenproof glass pyrex storing dish as my baking dish. The cooking time will vary according to your type of dish so check after 30 minutes to see if it is firm enough to slice.
Ingredients for Brekkie Bake
This recipe needs “rolled” or “traditional” oats. Please don’t try to substitute “steel cut” or “quick” oats, Sometimes you see a package labelled “gluten-free oats”. Even oats that have been processed in a gluten-free factory still have their own gluten-like protein. Some coeliacs can tolerate this gluten-like protein while others can’t.
Hemp seeds are beneficial because of their high content of Omega-3 fatty acids. These fatty acids can reduce inflammation and heart disease.
If you want to turn this into a Christmas version and can’t get Mixed Spice, find an empty jar and make your own simple version by combining:
