Blueberry Almond Baked Oatmeal

Happy Saturday, fellow oatmeal lovers!


It's so nice to have a Saturday morning at home again. I returned to my usual weekend morning routine of simultaneously making oatmeal and cleaning the kitchen. Why is cleaning the kitchen so cathartic to me?

Anyway, here is an easy recipe for you. It's something you can make if you don't have any fresh fruit on hand. See these pictures? That oatmeal was actually made using blueberry JAM. Yes, I definitely prefer to include actual fresh produce in my breakfast, but my kitchen is pretty bleak at the moment (luckily, we're making a trip to Trader Joe's today!).

by The Oatmeal Artist
Prep Time: 5 min
Cook Time: 25 min
Ingredients (serves 1)
  • 1/3 cup milk of choice
  • 1/4 tsp almond extract
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats (I use Country Choice Organic)
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a single-serving ramekin with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a small bowl, mix milk and almond extract.
  3. Add oats, baking powder, and salt, and stir until combined with wet ingredients.
  4. Carefully fold in blueberries.
  5. If you'd like to add any extra ingredients (coconut oil, dried fruit, nuts, lemon zest, sunflower seeds), do so now.
  6. Pour into the prepared ramekin. Bake for 18-22 minutes.

  2. Do you think this will work with frozen blackberries?

  3. I love this one! I have doubled the recipe, added a little brown sugar, added a little pancake syrup, and added cinnamon. I also substituted the almond extract for vanilla extract. It tastes like blueberry pancake! My kids LOVED it, too! The oldest hates oatmeal, but she loves this one and the peanut butter cookie one (which I add chocolate chips to).
