Blueberry baked oatmeal is super simple to make, can use fresh or frozen berries, and is a filling & satisfying food for anytime.
You may not thing of oatmeal as a kid friendly food, but when it’s looking like cake and combined with some favorite ingredients, what’s not kid-friendly about it?
*Disclaimer; this is not cake, and passing it off that way to your family will be disappointing to them (and you when they don’t eat it). If you’re familiar with me, you’ll know I don’t encourage “sneaking in” ingredients or tricking kids about food, as it breeds mistrust around eating and can harm the parent/child relationship. But I do like food that looks like cake or cookies because they’re just so much fun to serve and eat!
Now back to this recipe. Oats are a filling grain that is really easy to personalize with your favorite fillings and toppings. Baked oatmeal is simple to throw together, so it’s great to include your kids in making it (or let them do it alone if they’re older).
This recipe uses frozen blueberries; you can use whatever fruit you have on-hand, make a combination of berries, or toss in some chocolate chips.
Quick and easy, nourishing & filling!
