Blueberry Baked Oatmeal Ingredients
Aside from baking powder and a bit of salt, this baked oatmeal recipe is only 8 ingredients! For this recipe, you’ll use healthier swaps for refined sugar in the form of honey. You could also opt to use maple syrup in place of the honey in the same quantity.
You’ll also need an egg, old fashioned oats (gluten-free), melted butter, vanilla extract, unsweetened almond milk and your blueberries. The blueberries can be frozen or fresh. All of these ingredients are easily available at major grocery stores, on Amazon, or at a discount from Thrive Market where I get almost all of my pantry staples.
How to Cook Baked Oatmeal
This breakfast oatmeal recipe is incredibly simple to make. First, heat your oven to 350 degrees F., and lightly grease an 8×8 baking dish. Then you’ll mix together all of your wet ingredients: honey, egg, almond milk, melted butter and vanilla extract.
In a separate bowl, combine your dry ingredients: old fashioned oats, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt. Then add your dry ingredients into the bowl with your wet ingredients and combine them well. Fold in half of your blueberries. Don’t over-mix here to avoid turning everything blue or purple. Simply fold in just until they’re combined.
Pour your oats into the greased baking dish and top with the other half of the blueberries, and another sprinkle of cinnamon for good measure if you wish! Place your baking dish into the heated oven and bake for 40 minutes, or until the top is golden brown.
Serving and Storing Baked Blueberry Oatmeal
Slice the oatmeal into squares, and serve with a drizzle of honey or maple syrup, or any toppings you’d like.
Topping Ideas for Your Blueberry Oatmeal:

To store your baked oatmeal, make sure it’s completely cooled before placing in the fridge. This will last in the refrigerator for about 4-5 days. Before reheating a small splash of milk to rehydrate the oats in the microwave.
