Apple & Blueberry Baked Oatmeal

I’ve got something special for you guys today! This Apple & Blueberry Baked Oatmeal is so delicious, it will bring a smile to your face even on the coldest and darkest of mornings. I hope you love it as much as I do!

Breakfast is one of my favourite meals of the day but I usually eat it much earlier than my body desires because I eat before I leave for work. My new breakfast regime however is to have a fresh vegetable juice first thing in the morning and then mid-morning I whip out this baked oatmeal to eat at work. It brings me so much joy! It’s the little things in life right :)

Every morning it’s like a little gift. What could be better than a tasty breakfast where all the work has been done the night before!

This oatmeal is layered with apples and blueberries and baked until golden. If you struggle to get yourself out the door on time in the morning, this baked oatmeal might be your saviour. It’s also perfect to eat on the weekend with a big cup of tea and a good book!

      Hi Alexia

      I know what you mean with raisins and dried fruit but blueberries don’t dry out at all. They have a lot more moisture in them so there is no risk of them drying out.

    Reads like a delicious morning treat. Will definitely try these much healthier than muffins .

    Look delicious. Two questions. What’s the final moisture like? It is more like a cake or a granola bar. And two, how long does it keep?

    Thanks!

      Hi Laura,

      I would say the moisture is more like a cake. It’s quite soft rather than being crunchy like a granola bar. It think it would be fine in the fridge for a few days. I haven’t had it last any longer than two days in my house! Hope you enjoy :)
