Blueberry Baked Oats
The best breakfast meal prep
Blueberry baked oatmeal is a comforting and filling breakfast. I love to top mine off with sun butter, fresh blueberries, and coconut. The texture is nothing like stovetop oatmeal where it’s warm, creamy and gooey. Which is equally delicious, however, this baked oatmeal texture is more like a soft chewy oatmeal cookie that I just can’t get enough of!

How to make healthy Blueberry Baked Oats
To start, you are going to need a large mixing bowl. Your first step is to smash the bananas with either a fork or potato masher. I use a fork and it always gets the job done!
Once the bananas are mashed, you will add the almond milk, chia seeds, flax seed meal, cinnamon and baking powder to the mixture and mix until well incorporated.
Then, you will add in the oats to the mixture and using a spatula, mix until well combined.
Once you have your oatmeal mixture, evenly add to baking dish and bake in the oven at 375F for 40 minutes.
Allow the baked oats to set for a few minutes before cutting into them.
I like to top mine off with a nut butter of choice and fresh fruit. However, in these photos I used Sun Butter, fresh blueberries and coconut. If you haven’t had Sun Butter before, I highly recommend you try it out. It is a nut free spread that is made from sunflower seeds. The texture is creamy like peanut butter, but it has a very nice flavor, similar to tahini. I think that it adds great flavor to the baked oats!
If you don’t have any of the above, consider any of these toppings below-
- Black berries
- Nut butter- peanut, almond, pecan etc.
- Granola Butter
Are blueberries incorporated into the baked mix or just used as a topping? Pictures appear like they are baked with the oat mixture; however, the recipe does not include adding them before baking. If should be added, how many cups?
Thanks for catching that! Blueberries are added into the mixture before baked. I added more on top just because!
