BLUEBERRY BAKED OATMEAL is packed with oats and blueberries and sweetened with brown sugar. It’s a cozy and filling way to start the day.
My brother used to eat instant oatmeal just about every morning when we were growing up and, truth be told, I thought it looked so weird that I never even tasted a bowl of oatmeal until I was an adult.
Weird, right?!It’s still not an every day food for me, but sometimes I just get a craving for a warm, cozy bowl of oats. And if there are berries involved? Well, the more the merrier.
I really love to make this baked oatmeal for breakfast once and then reheat it all week long. It makes mornings so easy and my kids are happy to take a break from their usual breakfast of cold cereal.
How to make this baked oatmeal recipe:
Making baked oatmeal is just as easy as making it on the stove, but we love the texture you get from baking. It turns out a bit cakey and who doesn’t want cake for breakfast?!
Add your oats, milk, sugar, butter, eggs, baking powder, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt to a mixing bowl and give it a good stir.
Fold in some fresh or frozen blueberries.
Spread this mixture into a greased baking dish and pop it in the oven 30 minutes.
That’s it! It’s beyond simple.
Top your baked oatmeal with a drizzle of heavy cream and maple syrup or dollop on a scoop of Greek yogurt.
More berries are always welcome on top of our baked oatmeal!
