Baked Blueberry Oatmeal & WIAW

Standard

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!

WIAW Dec 5

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!)

Healthy Baked Blueberry Oatmeal

Baked Blueberry Oatmeal
Serves 2-3

  • 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)
  1. 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. 
  2. In a small bowl, combine cinnamon and rolled oats and pour over top of blueberries.
  3. In another bowl, combine your milk, syrup, vanilla, and egg white. Mix well.
  4. Pour milk and egg mixture over oats.
  5. Top with remaining blueberries and sliced almonds/nuts if desired.
  6. 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.
