Blueberry Baked Oatmeal

Can we talk breakfast?

I always start the school year with a bang and make great breakfasts for the kids. Then October comes, and we have resorted to ready-made oatmeal, frozen waffles and bowls of cereal. Fast forward to January, and I won’t even tell you what we are eating for breakfast. But, let’s be realistic; getting out of bed for a bowl of cold cereal when its 10 degrees outside isn’t really enticing. So it’s time to up my game and add a few more items to my standbys. I’m a sucker for oatmeal, especially when it’s cold out. And since I always have blueberries on hand, this Blueberry Baked Oatmeal is perfect addition to our breakfast rotation.

I don’t need to plan ahead with this Blueberry Baked Oatmeal – it’s ready in just 20 minutes. The blueberries add the perfect amount of sweetness, and each bite is filled with blueberry goodness. The recipe makes 6 individual ramekins of oatmeal and reheats like a champ in the microwave. Just add a splash of milk  and you are on your way to a fabulous berry-filled day.

I can never have too many options for my most challenging meal of the day. Share your secrets with me. How do you fuel your kids (or yourself!) in the morning?

    I am needing a little breakfast inspiration this Monday morning. I think I found it! I love that the oatmeal is ready in 20 minutes and that you bake them in single serving size dishes. So cute and practical. AND, I just happen to have all the ingredients on hand. Thanks for the recipe!

    My kids are having bagels and cream cheese for breakfast because I can officially reached “THIS SCHOOL YEAR IS NEVER GOING TO END” status. I’m definitely going to try this sometime this week. They’d love it!

    I love this recipe – so versatile too for people who are gluten intolerant – just switch up to gluten certified oats! Will totally try this out one morning.

    Oatmeal is one of my favorite breakfasts, but like you, most of the time I’m in a hurry and just grab the packaged stuff. I need to stop doing that, this looks SO good!

    I LOVE baked oatmeal. I make a simple little ramekin of it for myself and love to top it with apples or blueberries. Your recipe sounds extra filling with the egg and applesauce! I’ll have to give that a try. 🙂
