If you’ve been hanging around here long enough, then you might remember that I haven’t always been a fan of oatmeal.
Oatmeal has to have a lot of flavor, otherwise it’s too plain and boring for me. Even the instant oatmeal, as flavorful as it seems, just isn’t my thing.
And that’s why I’ve been on a mission to create those sweet, yet hearty oatmeal dishes. Have you tried my pumpkin pie oatmeal yet? It’s so warm and cozy! And since breakfast ideas are always floating around in my mind, it was time to put another oatmeal creation to good use.
And, yes, baked oatmeal definitely hits the spot for me. I just love the texture, flavor, and all-around taste. It’s like a hug on a plate, friends! This blueberry baked oatmeal recipe is my latest (and greatest) creation to add to my breakfast rotation.
Not only is this blueberry baked oats recipe a breeze to whip up (a requirement around here!), but it’s full of good-for-you ingredients and low in sugar. It’s very easy to customize this recipe depending on your tastes, too.
Did I mention how hearty and cozy this baked oatmeal recipe is? One bite and you’ll fall in love the sweet blueberries and warm oats. I like to drizzle some honey on top and eat this warm for a filling breakfast.
How to make Blueberry Baked Oatmeal:
Like all of my baked oatmeal recipes, this version is simple to make. You can have it ready in less than an hour, too.
- To start, mix together some old-fashioned oats, some spices, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
- Then, whisk the wet ingredients, such as milk, honey (or maple syrup), eggs, and a touch of vanilla extract.
- Stir in some fresh (or frozen) blueberries, pour into a baking dish, and let the oven work its magic. Easy-peasy and ready in no time!
Can Baked Oatmeal be Made the Night Before?
Absolutely! This baked oatmeal with blueberries is perfect for meal prepping. You can make and bake this oatmeal ahead of time and then slice and serve for a quick breakfast during the week.
You can also prepare the baked oatmeal before-hand, refrigerate (cover and keep for up to two days) and then bake when ready to serve. Be sure to let the oatmeal sit at room temperature for 10-15 minutes before baking, otherwise you will need to increase cooking time.
Can Baked Oatmeal be Reheated?
Yes! You can eat this baked oatmeal with blueberries warm from the oven. You can also refrigerate and eat cold or warm in the microwave for a cozy breakfast.
Can You Freeze Baked Oatmeal?
You sure can! Simply let the oatmeal come to room temperature and then store in a a freezer-safe container for up to three months. When ready to serve, let thaw in the refrigerator before baking.
Can You Substitute Quick Oats for Old Fashioned Oats?
You can, but the texture will be different. In recipes that call for old fashioned (or rolled) oats, it provides a more chewy, nutty texture and flavor. Quick oats provide a softer, moister texture. In all of my oatmeal recipes, I use old-fashioned oats, as I prefer the hearty texture over the finer, quick oats.
This healthy baked oatmeal is one of my favorite breakfasts, and I’m hoping it will be yours, too. Serve with a drizzle of honey, maple syrup, or even a splash of milk for a dish that will fuel you all morning long!
