Blueberry Baked Oatmeal


Description

Warm and satisfying, this healthy baked oatmeal is the perfect wake-up call for a busy morning. 


Ingredients

1/2 cup pecans, coarsely chopped

2 and 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats

1 and 1/2 tsp. cinnamon

1 tsp. baking powder

1/4 tsp. sea salt

1/4 tsp. nutmeg

1 and 3/4 cups milk

1/3 cup maple syrup (or honey)

2 large eggs

4 tbsp. melted butter, divided in half

2 and 1/2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries (half for bottom of the dish and half to sprinkle on top)

2 tsp. maple sugar (optional to sprinkle on top)


Instructions

  1. Start by preheating the oven to 375F.
  2. Toast pecans for 3 to 5 minutes. Once you notice that nutty aroma, it's time to pull them out and let them cool.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl, combine nutmeg, oats, nuts, cinnamon baking powder and salt.
  4. In a small glass bowl (I love to use my glass measuring cup for this step), whisk together milk, maple syrup, eggs, vanilla and 2 tbsp. of the melted butter. (the other 2 tbsp. will be brushed on top once it's done cooking).
  5. Grease an 8x8-inch baking dish and arrange half of the berries in the bottom of the dish.
  6. Cover blueberries in baking dish with the oat mixture.
  7. Pour wet ingredients evenly over top of oatmeal mixture.
  8. Scatter remaining berries over top of oat mixture.
  9. Sprinkle with 2 tsp. maple sugar or brown sugar (optional but tasty).
  10. Bake in 375F oven for 45 minutes.
  11. Drizzle remaining 2 tbsp. of butter over top. Another sprinkle of maple sugar on the warm baked oatmeal gives it a bit more sweetness.
  12. Cool for 5 minutes before serving.
  13. Serve plain or topped with yogurt or maple syrup.
  14. Store leftovers in the refrigerator for 3 to 5 days. Warm up in the microwave for 60 seconds.
