It’s Wednesday, which means it’s time for What I Ate Wednesday! My eats come from last Wednesday & I’m excited because they included some baked blueberry oatmeal, which means I have a fun new recipe for you!
Breakfast: Big surprise here! 1/2 c. steel cut oats with unsweetened vanilla almond milk, 1 Tbsp. chia seeds, spoonful of peanut butter
Snack #1 (not pictured): Banana
Lunch: Crab vegetable soup, baby carrots, and Multigrain Crunchmasters crackers — has anyone else had these?! They are absolutely amazing!
Snack #2: Vanilla Greek Yogurt, 1/2 honeycrisp apple, cinnamon
Dinner: Fall Apple Salad (no chicken) and whole wheat angel hair pasta with lots of veggies and parm cheese!
Bedtime Snack: 1/2 c. of my baked blueberry oatmeal, the star of my WIAW! Since this month’s WIAW focuses on healthy holiday eats, this is a perfect recipe for a Christmas morning breakfast (or nighttime snack!)
Baked Blueberry Oatmeal
- 1/2 c. rolled oats (quick or old fashioned work!)
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/3 c. blueberries (I used Trader Joe’s frozen)
- 1/1 c. unsweetened vanilla almond milk (or other milk of choice)
- 3 Tbsp. agave/maple syrup
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1 egg white
- 1 Tbsp. sliced almonds (if desired)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a small baking dish (I used my small Corningware dish) with cooking spray. Spread layer of blueberries across the bottom.
- In a small bowl, combine cinnamon and rolled oats and pour over top of blueberries.
- In another bowl, combine your milk, syrup, vanilla, and egg white. Mix well.
- Pour milk and egg mixture over oats.
- Top with remaining blueberries and sliced almonds/nuts if desired.
- Bake for about 30 minutes or until toothpick comes out fairly clean.
How to “level up” this recipe
- I made this recipe earlier this week and added a half of a sliced banana in with the blueberries!
- Add flax seed, chia seed, or whatever other healthy seeds/grains you have on hand in with the oats.
How to “level down” this recipe
- If you like your oatmeal a little sweeter, consider adding a little bit of brown sugar or regular raw sugar to the mix.
