Monday Meals: Blueberry Baked Oatmeal!

Ok, it’s Monday! Both Meg and I are experiencing a hectic week already.  I just had to share this fabulous recipe I found this weekend for baked oatmeal.  I must tell you, the RAGE . . . it’s all true . . . baked oatmeal IS amazing.

We found the recipe on tastespotting.com (think pinterest but for FOOD!).  The recipe is from Becky Bakes:

Here’s the low down to make and bake!

Blueberry Baked Oatmeal (Becky’s original suggestion in parentheses)

  • 1 1/4 cups blueberries
  • 3/4 cup soy milk
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2  large eggs (I used egg replacer)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • ¾ cups butter, divided (I used Earth balance)
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoons baking soda
  • ½ teaspoons salt
  • 4 tbsp.  brown sugar

Preheat oven to 350° F. Melt butter; pour 1/4 cup into the bottom of a 9-inch square baking dish. Sprinkle blueberries and 2 tbsp of brown sugar on top of the butter. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, mix together the soy milk, honey, eggs, remaining butter and vanilla.
In a large bowl, whisk together oats, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix well. Pour over the fruit and smooth the top. Sprinkle with remaining 2 tbsp. of brown sugar.
Bake at 350°F for 40 to 50 minutes, or until browned on top and fruit is bubbly. Allow to cool slightly. Serve with milk or cream. This would also be fantastic topped with a dollop of vanilla yogurt.

I actually used a 1/4 cup of maple syrup in place of honey since Jax isn’t quite old enough yet.  But man – I can’t wait to use honey.

We had it with milk over the top.  It’s so good!  We have a little left over also, which will be great as leftovers for the next couple of days (if it lasts that long).  I don’t know about you, but I always need to get meals ready fast.  Zapping a square of this in the microwave for Jax in the morning will make my life super easy!  Not to mention – Jax LOVED it, which he has become a bit of a picky eater as of late.

LOVE . . . and a must try!

ENJOY! ash
