Baked Blueberry Oatmeal

Baked blueberry oatmeal is the perfect make ahead breakfast treat…

Sweet baked blueberry oatmeal filled with rolled oats, blueberries, maple syrup and bananas. This is the perfect make ahead breakfast.

I have a confession. I almost never eat breakfast. I know I should. It’s not that I do not like breakfast, but honestly, I forget to eat.   Now if you saw me in real life you might think to yourself “there is no way this girl has ever forgotten to eat” but I’m not lying. I forget to eat ALL the time.

I will be doing stuff around the house, look at the clock see that it’s 2pm and all of a sudden I will realize I haven’t eaten.  I will then usually get horribly sick to my stomach and attempt to eat everything in sight. This is not a good thing. This is why I must get on a normal breakfast eating schedule.

So, in my attempt to change my ways I made some baked oatmeal. It’s filled with blueberries, bananas and just a touch of cinnamon. Perfect way to start the day.  After I pulled this out of the oven I knew I wouldn’t be forgetting to eat breakfast today!

    Oats (in pretty much any form) are probably my favorite breakfast…love the look of this one! The blueberries are a great touch.

    My hubby is not typically much of an oatmeal fan. But, he is definitely a blueberry fan. I’m thinking this might be just the dish to win him over. Looks amazing!

    I’ve been wanting to try something like this for a while now – it’s winter in New Zealand and this is exactly the sort of thing I need to get me out of bed on a cold, cold morning!

    I made this for breakfast this morning and it was a hit!!! So yummy. My son and husband are not big fans of traditional oatmeal. They each had two servings of this delicious and heart healthy dish. Thank you!

    Cara — April 17, 2016 at 9:54 pm

    How does this qualify as make-ahead? I’ve made this before and loved it, but would I be able to mix it the night before and then throw it in the oven in the morning or something?


    • nutmegnanny replied: — April 17th, 2016 @ 10:19 pm

      Hi Cara! I like to make this ahead (say on a Sunday night) and then re-heat scoops each morning. If it gets too thick I just pour a little milk over the oatmeal before heating it up 🙂

  44. #
    Holly — August 7, 2016 at 3:49 pm

    I made this VEGAN…it was DIVINE. I subbed almond milk, 1/3 cup chia seeds for the egg and Earth Balance Organic vegan “butter”.
    I can’t wait to make it again!!!

  45. #
    Jennifer — January 15, 2017 at 2:54 pm

    Could frozen blueberries be used?

    • nutmegnanny replied: — January 16th, 2017 @ 10:16 pm

      Hi Jennifer! I have not personally used frozen blueberries but I think they would work out fine!

  46. #
    Natalie — February 19, 2017 at 10:15 am

    substituted with almond milk and a touch of almond flavour – could do the same with coconut for extra flavour boost

  47. #
    Crystal Young — February 5, 2018 at 9:05 pm

    Can this be frozen and reheated at a later time? Looks delicious!

    • nutmegnanny replied: — February 11th, 2018 @ 4:56 pm

      Hi Crytal – Yes, I have frozen it before in little squares and then warmed it up in the microwave in the morning. Hope you enjoy the oatmeal!

    andrea — July 13, 2018 at 7:50 am

    I´ve made this with a bunch of different fruit combos (apple-blueberry is my personal favorite) and I do it without the syrup because I´m diabetic. It´s still my favorite breakfast! Thanks!
