Baked Blueberry & Banana Oatmeal

I’ve had this recipe up on my iPad for a few weeks now via the blog baked bree. Then, my friend Brandy from Nutmeg Nanny made something similar and when I saw it again; I had to try it right away!

Both recipes are very similar, I used Blueberries and Bananas because that is what I had on hand, but I can see this being made with a variety of fruits! The possibilities are endless and ever expanding. I love oatmeal, but I rarely have time in the morning to make anything. Having a tray of this ready to go in the morning is a lifesaver. All I have to do is scoop it into a bowl and warm it up at the office.

I know after this is all gone I will be making more with a variation of fruit. This is a great way to get some more fruits into your diet. I added some flax seed meal for a fiber boost along with all the other great benefits the centuries old seed provides.

I ate this for breakfast this morning and as a “snack” when I first made it. I bet it would be good paired with a blueberry banana smoothie!

    Hi! Would honey work instead of maple syrup?

      Hi Riley!

      I don’t see why not! I would totally substitute honey in place of the maple syrup. I would suspect that the maple syrup will be easier to incorporate though.

      I hope it works out for you!

    When do you put the sugar in? I forgot to put it in, and then realized it wasn’t on the instructions. We put some syrup or honey on top. Still good! 🙂

      Hey Kandace! Thanks for your note. I fixed the recipe. You would usually add it in with the other dry ingredients but on top is fine. 😀 I’m glad that it still turned out good for you! I really should make up a double batch of this so I will have it for the week. Have a great night! 😀
