Baked Oatmeal with Blueberries

This week I decided to take my oatmeal to the next level and spice up things a little bit. I hope you will enjoy this recipe for Baked Oatmeal.

Lately, I am working on buying less weekly and eating more of the things I currently have in my pantry (#shelfcooking). Since I have A LOT of oats, I’ve decided that this will be my main ingredient for breakfast this week.

I have a love-hate relationship with oatmeal. There are moments in my life where I do crave it and could eat it all the time, but I also have moments when I cannot look at it, and it does not sound like anything delicious to me. I was thinking of what can I do to make it taste better. And the answer is so simple.

Bake it.

Baked oatmeal taste so much better! It feels like having a dessert for breakfast, and who doesn’t like that?!

KID-FRIENDLY: If you are making it with your kids, you can prepare the dry ingredients choices for them beforehand, maybe in small bowls or containers. Then let them choose what they want in their baked oatmeal. Kids love making their food and deciding what’s in it. You can have fun with your children, teach them conscious food choices, and prepare something delicious and nutritious together.

Add some kind of sweetener. I used Monkfruit Sweetener that I discovered recently, and I am testing it right now. You can use regular sugar, brown sugar, maple syrup, stevia. The nutrition value is based on this sweetener, which is zero-calorie; if you decided on using something different, don’t forget to add the nutritional value.

To create a more balanced meal , you can add greek yogurt, kefir, or cottage cheese on the side.

If you want to continue your experiments with oats I highly recommend trying Southwest Oats. I found this recipe in Forks Over Knives magazine and it’s a bomb!
