This baked oatmeal is one of my favorite go-to breakfast recipes. It’s easy, it’s quick, it’s delicious! You can use blueberries and bananas as I did in this recipe or change out the fruit, depending on the season. 

Blueberry Banana Baked Oatmeal

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. Maybe try it with apples? I’d be super into that as apples are my favorite fruit.

I love oatmeal, but I rarely have time in the morning to make anything. Having a tray of this ready to go 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. This is a great way to get some more fruits into your diet. You could also add some flax seed meal for a fiber boost or some chia seeds to up those omega 3’s.

I ate this for breakfast this morning and as a “snack” when I first made it.
