Their mild, nutty flavor complements the blackberries beautifully, creating a satisfyingly crunchy texture that contrasts wonderfully with the fruit’s juiciness.
White chocolate chips add an extra layer of decadence to this oatmeal bake. Their velvety smoothness and rich, creamy sweetness balance out the tartness of the blackberries, adding a touch of indulgence that makes this feel like a treat rather than just a healthy breakfast option.
The versatility of this blackberry oatmeal bake also makes it special. You can easily swap out the blackberries and white chocolate with other ingredients.
