For this recipe you will need:
As you can see, we’re using whole-food ingredients for a healthy oatmeal recipe. Likely, you already have the ingredients in your pantry.
Enjoy this oatmeal bake for breakfast. I like to serve mine with coconut yogurt.
Or, serve as a cozy dessert with some vegan vanilla ice cream. (My husband loves this!).
Now, this recipe is super easy and straight forward to bake. But here’s a few tips for perfecting it. As well as some tips for storage.
If you have any spotty bananas lying around, use them for this recipe! Spotty bananas are sweeter than green ones, and will yield in a sweeter bake.
Now, you might be wondering whether to use fresh blueberries or frozen blueberries in this recipe? And the answer is, either. Personally, I prefer frozen blueberries because they are cheaper and more juicy in this bake.
Feel free to use wild blueberries, or regular blueberries like I have. Keep in mind that frozen blueberries are highly staining so wear an apron or clothing that you’re not worried about potentially staining. (Especially if you’re making with the kiddies).
Likewise, I prefer to add my frozen blueberries to the bottom and top of the bake. Instead of stirring it into the oatmeal mixture. Otherwise, your bake will turn purple.
Absolutely! I love to make this recipe in advance to take to the cottage for the weekend, or prepare it when we have guests staying over. Simply bake the night before and keep in the fridge. Serve warm by reheating in the oven at 350F for 10 minutes. Or zap it in the microwave.
Baked oatmeal will keep for up to 5 days. Store in the fridge.
Alternatively, you can freeze baked oatmeal for longer storage. Keep in a freezer proof container for up to one month.
In addition, it’s optional to freeze your bake in individual pre-cut squares for single ready portions. Let thaw before eating and reheat in the oven or microwave.
