Baked Blueberry Oatmeal
This is a great make ahead recipe for quick breakfasts, lunch or snacks during the busy week. Refrigerate for up to 5 days.
- 3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- ½ cup granola
- 1 handful shredded coconut,
- 2 TBSP ground flaxseed
- 2 cups (200 grams) frozen wild blueberries
- 1 1/4 cups (300 ml) unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 2 eggs, lightly beaten
- 2 TBSP or ¼ cup pure maple syrup
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 3/4 cup cottage cheese or Greek yogurt
- 2 mashed ripe bananas
- ½ cup chopped walnuts
- Preheat oven to 375°F). Coat a 9-by-13-inch baking dish with cooking spray/oil. (Use a smaller baking dish if you prefer a thicker oatmeal).
- Combine oats, baking powder, cinnamon, granola, coconut, ground flaxseed and salt in a large bowl. Stir in the blueberries. (Coating them with the dry ingredients prevents the blueberries from sinking to the bottom of the oatmeal.)
- Stir in the milk, eggs, vanilla, maple syrup, bananas, walnuts and yogurt. Transfer oatmeal mixture to the prepared baking dish.
- Cover baking dish with foil, and bake for 30 minutes. Remove foil and bake another 15–20 minutes. Serve with fresh blueberries.
