When mixed berries get baked into creamy, cinnamon-spiced oats, the result is this warming breakfast casserole that can feed a crowd in one fell scoop. Chopped dates provide sweetness the natural way, while crunchy toasted pepitas and hemp seed hearts offer a big helping of omega-3 fatty acids.

This recipe is very good! It’s the perfect level of sweetness, and I love the nuttiness of the hemp seeds. Reheats well for breakfasts throughout the week. The only change I made was using 2% milk instead of whole.

This is a delicious recipe and this is the second weekend in a row that I’ve made it. I cut the leftovers into squares and reheat them to eat for breakfast during the week.
