This Healthy Baked Blueberry Oatmeal is full of fresh berries, a pinch of cinnamon and healthy whole grain oats. It is minimally sweetened (mostly with bananas) and takes only 10 everyday ingredients. Baked oatmeal is simple and easy to make, and I love that the oven does most of the work.
We make a lot of breakfast bars, oat bars, and layered snack bars in our house. There are so many different combinations to play with, and we love the different flavors and textures that come out with each variation. Baked oatmeal falls into this category because it cuts nicely into bars, but it’s still soft and comforting like a warm bowl of stovetop oatmeal, so it kind of does double duty in the breakfast category. It’s also perfect for serving a crowd, or just a bunch of hungry kids, like ours! Try this healthy baked oatmeal recipe with any of your favorite berries, or mix in a little shredded coconut!
How to make it
Healthy Baked Oatmeal is prepped in 10 minutes or less. It’s simple and fun if you want to let the kids join in. There’s really only a little bit of mixing, so it’s a great recipe to make together. Start by preheating your oven to 350F and preparing the flax eggs. Then, mash your bananas in a mixing bowl until there are hardly any lumps remaining. Add the flax eggs, milk, coconut sugar, and vanilla to the bananas and stir them all together.
Next, add the oats, cinnamon, baking powder, and sea salt to the bowl and give the dry ingredients a little bit of a stir on top to mix the salt and baking powder around in the dry oats. Then, fold everything together until it’s evenly combined. Fold in the blueberries, and then scoop out all of that delicious oatmeal mix into a lined 9 “X 9” baking pan (brownie pan). Pop it in the oven for 35-40 minutes and then let it cool slightly when it comes out. Cut it into squares, and enjoy!
