Clean Eat Recipe :: Baked Berry Oatmeal - Sweetened with Nectresse

This post brought to you by Nectresse™ Sweetener. All opinions are 100% mine.

We have a special treat for you today! The good folks at NECTRESSE™Sweetener (made by the creators of Splenda) offered us a sample to try and create something magically sweet with their no-calorie sweetener for you. I know what you are thinking... you read "The Creators of Splenda" and you flipped out, right? Well, NEVER FEAR! This is a clean sweetener alternative - it is the only 100% natural sweetener made from fruit. In fact, it's made from monk fruit - also known as luo han guo (an ingredient in one of our favorite products, Quest Bars!). You can find Nectresse in your neighborhood grocery store - a HUGE plus if you get a hankering for a quick clean sweet fix.

I have been wanting to make a baked oatmeal with fruit for some time now and really struggled with the type of sweetener to put in it. Once I saw the packets of NECTRESSE™Sweetener, I knew that now was the time!  The amount that you need is much less than ordinary sugars and/or alternative sweetener products - which is a big benefit! The taste is AMAZING!

Baked Berry Oatmeal

1 1/2 cups quick cooking oats
3 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp sea salt
4 packets of NECTRESSE™Sweetener
1 medium banana, sliced
1 cup strawberries, sliced
1/2 cup blueberries
2 cups unsweetened almond milk
1 Tbsp pure vanilla extract (avoid HFCS)
2 egg whites

1. Preheat oven to 360 degrees F. 
2. In a small, 5" diameter round ceramic baking dish, add oats, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, sea salt, baking powder and Nectresse. Stir to combine.
3. Slowly add in bananas, strawberries and blueberries, stirring slightly to combine.
4. In an additional bowl, whisk together almond milk, vanilla extract and egg whites. Slowly pour into baking dish to combine with oat mixture.
5. Bake for 30-40 minutes depending on oven. Let sit for 10 minutes after baking.
6. Enjoy!

Makes 4 servings.

  1. Do you think this would refrigerate and reheat nicely? Or is it better to eat in one sitting? Looks delicious!

  2. I couldn't find Nectresse and Whole Foods or at my local grocery store :(

  3. I would NEVER eat Nectresse. That is FAR from clean. It is GMO.

  4. But monk fruit is not the only ingredient in Nectresse, nor is it even the primary ingredient. The first and most abundant ingredient in Nectresse is actually erythritol, a sugar alcohol commonly derived from corn, the vast majority of which has been genetically modified (GM) in the U.S. And the second ingredient in Nectresse is sugar, which is refined and more than likely comes from GM sugar beets.

  5. I made this today and used stevia. I think next time I make I will leave the fruit out next time and just serve the fresh fruit on the top. I don't like baked fruit.

  6. How many calories (etc.) does one serving contain?

  7. Oatmeal should not be eaten with fruit, fruit should be eaten by itself and nothing else and on an empty stomach like at breakfast or 2 to 3 hours after your last meal.You must allow fruit to pass through the stomach before other foods are eaten. The reason being is it doesn't take much effort for our system to digest it except for the the more dense fruits like bannanas, avacadoes and dried fruit. Fruit passes right through the stomach and in to the intestines where it's digested.

  8. Sorry for the haters who didn't read your very first line on this recipe that says "all opinions are 100% mine!" I used a couple tablespoons of organic, raw sugar instead of the artificial sweetener. Made it this morning and my family loved it!!! Thanks for the inspirations. Unhappy people criticize, happy people make suggestions.

  9. Do you think you could sub raw coconut sugar?
    Thanks, Angie
