Baked Blueberry Oatmeal

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.  

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!

Baked Blueberry Oatmeal Ingredients

  • old fashioned rolled oats
  • baking powder
  • ground cinnamon
  • sea salt
  • milk
  • an egg
  • unsalted butter 
  • vanilla paste (or extract)
  • maple syrup
  • bananas
  • blueberries

How to Make Baked Blueberry Oatmeal

While the oven is preheating at 375 degrees, butter your dish (I prefer an 8×8, but obviously you can use a different size close to that) and cover bottom with banana slices. Then sprinkle 3/4 cup blueberries over top bananas and set aside. 

Then you will want to get two bowls to stir and combine ingredients. One bowl for dry ingredients (oats, baking powder, cinnamon and salt) and the other for your wet (milk, egg, butter, vanilla paste and maple syrup).

Afterward, add oats to dish and gently pour milk mixture over oats. Pro tip: gently rap pan on the counter to make sure the milk has gone all the way through the oats.

Finally, sprinkle the top with blueberries and cook in oven for 35 to 45 minutes until the top is golden brown and the oatmeal is set. If desired, drizzle the top with more maple syrup.
