Baked Blueberry Oatmeal

“I’m not really a breakfast person.”

How many times have you heard someone say that? I’ve been known to say it myself. And usually when I say it, it doesn’t really mean I don’t want breakfast.

It just means that either 1) I’m too lazy to make it or 2) I don’t have any great ideas. Because as much as I can be creative in other areas of my life, I can enter a creative dry spell almost immediately when it comes to what to eat in the morning.

It’s hard! And I’m tired.

Despite my exhaustion, which I know we’re all experiencing these days, I’ve come up with another great oatmeal recipe (like my chocolate overnight oats!) that I know you’re going to love.

Have you ever had baked oatmeal? What about blueberry baked oatmeal?? My friends – you are in for a real treat.

If you’ve never made baked oatmeal before, it’s really easy. Let me sum it up for you: you’re going to throw ingredients into a bowl, stir them, and then bake them.

Oh, and you have to mash some bananas too. Which, if you have some kids that need something to do? This is a great task for them. Who doesn’t love to mash stuff?

I hope you enjoy this breakfast recipe! Here’s what you need to complete this baked oatmeal:

  • 2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 cup slivered or chopped almonds
  • 2 medium sized ripe bananas
  • 1/4 tsp of cinnamon powder
  • 1/2 tsp of baking powder
  • 1 cup of milk
  • Pinch of salt

Tips and Thoughts – Just Because

  • You don’t want to use instant oats for this oatmeal – you should use old fashioned oats. Instant or quick oats will provide a different texture.
  • Don’t have old fashioned oats? You can also use granola in this recipe! It changes the nutritional information of course, but it’s pretty delicious.
  • You can use fresh or frozen blueberries. If you use frozen, let them thaw first. You will likely need to cook the oatmeal a little longer (30 minutes plus). You’re looking for the middle to be set and the top to be golden.
  • To mash a banana, first cut into large chunks and place into a bowl. Mash the banana by using the fork to press the banana against the bowl walls. Continue until the entire banana is mushed to the desired consistency.
  • If you’d like this to be a bit more sweet, you can add 1/4 cup maple syrup to the recipe. Grade A or B is your choice (Grade A is more sweet than B).
  • You can store this baked oatmeal in the fridge in an airtight container for up to four days.

If you want to reheat, you can cover a ramekin (or the whole casserole dish) with foil and reheat at 350F oven for around 10-20 minutes. You can also just reheat individual servings in the microwave (~1 minute).
