Blueberry Baked Oatmeal

If you’re like me, then you’re a hot mess in the mornings. Don’t you hate it when you’re running around trying to get your and the kids ready for the day and you realize that you still have to make breakfast? This easy blueberry baked oatmeal is a lifesaver.

Either bake it ahead of time and simply serve it or refrigerate it the night before and pop it in the oven as you get ready.

When it comes to baking oatmeal, the types of oats matter. You’ll be adding the oats raw to the recipe.

I recommend either quick oats or rolled oats. Each will provide a different outcome.

Rolled oats will give it a bit more texture, quick oats will provide moisture and soft baked breakfast.

Can I make baked oatmeal ahead of time?

Yes! You can totally make it ahead of time for easy mornings. Just refrigerate the breakfast overnight.

If you do this the end result will be more creamy and moist. Some people prefer it this way, others don’t. Try both ways and see what you prefer.

Another option is to bake it ahead of time and serve it up during busy mornings. Meal prep is a lifesaver in my house, I’m a hot mess in the mornings and this is one less thing to worry about.

How to Make Baked Oatmeal

What size baking dish to use:

The pan in the photo is 8×11 and 3 inches tall (I know, it’s an odd size) you can grab one here.

That being said, you can make baked oatmeal in any pan.

My only advice is filing it to be about 1 inch thick. If it’s too thick it ends up being mushy and if it’s too thin it gets a bit hard. 1 inch thick is the perfect size.

The topping in this oatmeal bake is totally optional, just do it if you have a bit more time in your hands however it gives the baked oatmeal a delicious texture!

Hot tip: Go ahead and bake the topping alone and then use it as a yogurt topping (think of it as flavor packed granola).
