Let’s talk about oatmeal.  I’m not a fan.  I don’t like the texture of it and I never seem to be able to cook it correctly.  So a couple of years ago when someone asked me if I ever tried baked oatmeal I said that I hadn’t and didn’t think I’d like it.   That friend brought me a piece the very next day and I tentatively tried it.   I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it!

The best part about baked oatmeal is the texture.  It’s more like a chewy bread texture then a wet oatmeal texture.  It’s really delicious and the perfect alternative to regular oatmeal.

Get in the kitchen and make this tasty Blueberry Baked Oatmeal

I started experimenting with different oatmeal flavors.   One of my favorites is a pumpkin spice oatmeal studded with dried cranberries.   It’s really fun trying to find new combinations to add to the baked oatmeal to make it taste totally different.  The main ingredients in the baked oatmeal are oats, eggs, spices, some type of fruit, and some type of nuts.

I decided on blueberry oatmeal this time around because I got a great deal on blueberries at the market.  When I got home I started trying to gather the ingredients I wanted to put in the oatmeal.   I finally came up with blueberries, vanilla, ginger, cinnamon, and orange zest.   I also added a crunchy and healthy topping of walnuts, flax seeds, and honey on top of it.

Bake up a tasty oatmeal filled with nuts and blueberries!

I anxiously waited for it to come out of the oven.  It had a sweet and slightly spiced smell.  When I took it out of the oven the topping was golden brown and looked amazing.  My first bite was pure bliss.  The topping was crunchy and sweet while the oatmeal was soft, spiced, and bursting with the blueberries.

Baked Blueberry Oatmeal is a delicious breakfast

Because this oatmeal is baked its great to make, cut into pieces, then eaten all week for breakfast.  It’s also a wonderful dish for a family brunch because its easy to make, easy to serve, and can be made with any fruit or nut combination.   Give it a try this week!
