Shrimp & Grits, Country Ham, and Berry-Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Bake

August 25, 2017




Cassie’s Café: Cookies, Cakes and Crafts is the place to be in Chandlerville, Kentucky the fictional setting for my books in the Chandler County Multi-Author branded series. Somethin's always cookin' in Cassie's. The scrumptious food and the local regulars make for a winning combination.  Sarg, all around Chef and keeper of the kitchen, is known for his Kentucky specialties that include Shrimp & Grits, The Hot Brown and Country Ham ala Sarg.


In my Fall release, Missing Home, Tina DuPree, owner Cassie's niece has convinced Sarg--almost-- that the Cafe needs to add a 'Healthy Eating Section' to it's menu. He's agreed to a test run! So today, for the first time, Cassie's is serving, Tina and Sarg's adaptation of a yummy,  healthy and easy to make Berry-Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Bake**.  Let's see what the regulars think! I'm sure it will be one hot topic!! Try it, I think you'll like it.


How to make! 


2 cups of old-fashioned oats

1/2 cup lightly packedy brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 cup of mini chocolate chips

1 1/2 cups of fresh/frozen mixed berries

1 1/2 cups vanilla almond milk

1 large egg

1 tablespoon of butter, melted

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 banana


  1. Preheat oven to 375 F. Coat a 13 x 9 inch baking dish with non-stick cooking oil.

  2. In a large bowl, mix together: oats, brown sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, and chocolate chips. Fold the berries into the dry mixture; then pour into the prepared pan.

  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, melted butter and vanilla. Pour this mixture over the oatmeal mixture making sure to mix evenly. (You can shake the pan a little to make sure it gets evenly distributed.)

  4. Cut the banana into 1/4 inch slices and place on the oatmeal. Bake at 375 F for 30-35 minutes. Sprinkle with additional brown sugar, and serve warm.

Vanilla milk adds a nice flavor but your milk of choice will work as well.
