Blueberry baked oats that taste like you're eating dessert for breakfast
Breakfast is my all-time favorite meal of the day. I wake up every morning around 7am and crave something sweet with a big cup of (strong) coffee. Here's where my Baked Oats recipe comes in handy.
I'll prep a big batch of baked oats one night and then have my morning meals ready to go for the next few days. When I'm headed out for a work meeting, I can quickly pop a square in a glass container and top it with some peanut butter and fruit.
And, if I'm reallllyy craving something sweet, I'll add a little bit of jam or just a few chocolate chips (don't @me). Microwave it for 10-15 seconds and a tasty dessert-for-breakfast is served. Now where's my coffee?
Blueberry Baked Oats
Makes about 9 squares
2 cups old fashioned oats
1½ cup milk (skim, almond, or any milk of choice)
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons chia seeds
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
dash of cinnamon
¼ to ½ cup brown sugar
½ cup blueberries, fresh or frozen (may substitute with any berries)
optional: sliced almonds
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mist baking dish with non-stick oil and set aside. In a large bowl, mix all ingredients together. Pour batter into baking dish, and use a spoon to distribute the oat mixture evenly throughout. Bake for 30-40 minutes, or until oats are golden brown. Serve warm, or refrigerate until ready to serve.
When ready to enjoy, microwave a square for about 15 seconds, and top with Greek yogurt or nut butter and additional fruit. Enjoy!
