Baked Oatmeal


While looking for new recipes to play with, this one popped up. Since I’m always up for a healthy breakfast recipe, it seemed like a no-brainer to give this one a shot. Honestly though, that’s my rationalization for almost EVERY recipe I come across. It’s a no-brainer, right? Of course it is. I HAVE to try it.

I love making oatmeal in the morning for breakfast because it’s so quick and easy, and it amazes me how good I feel after eating it. Is this what the Roman Athletes ate for breakfast while training, because I feel like I should be fighting off bulls in the middle of an arena while throwing a spear through a 6 inch hoop 300 feet away. Okay fine, so it’s not that extreme, but my belly and gut are super happy when I eat this for breakfast.

I wasn’t sure how the consistency was going to turn out with this since it’s baked and I didn’t want to overdo it, but it was perfect. Wild blueberries are my fruit of choice when it comes to oatmeal, because you’re guaranteed a little burst of blueberry with each bite. These little wild blueberries are also higher in antioxidants, so that’s a double win. You can use different fruits in this recipe, and I will be all over a combination of several different kinds like apples, strawberries, and peaches. Step aside, Wheaties.
