It is one degree today. ONE degree.
I am normally not one to complain about the weather but this is ridiculous. I will take inches and inches of snow over freezing temperatures any day. Especially when said weather makes my pipes freeze – but we aren’t going to talk about that.
To help get me out of my warm bed and out the door in the morning, I count on this Easy Blueberry Baked Oatmeal. It is such a simple breakfast that is easy to prepare and can either feed a bunch or stretch over several breakfast servings for a quick grab and go breakfast.
I like to load this Easy Blueberry Baked Oatmeal with nutritious extras like ground flax, chia seeds and greek yogurt. These extras kick up the nutritional content while also adding extra protein, making you fuller longer.
To begin, you lightly grease a baking pan and dump the oatmeal, ground flax, chia seeds and fresh blueberries into the baking dish.
You then mix the rest of the ingredients in a bowl before pouring it over the oatmeal, chia seeds, ground flax and blueberries and bake it in a 350 degree oven for about 30 minutes.
I like to top my Easy Baked Blueberry Oatmeal with a little brown sugar to serve and eat it when it’s nice and hot straight from the oven. It is just so delicious.
This recipe is so simple. If you don’t like blueberries you can change it up by adding cherries, raspberries or even bananas.

Stay warm this weekend! I don’t know about you but I will be whipping up some baked oatmeal for a nice, cozy Sunday morning at home.
