Food Factor: Blueberry Baked Oatmeal

April 29, 2019

 

Some mornings, it’s hard for me to make healthy breakfast choices. Whether I’m running out of time or tempted by a hot breakfast sandwich from the local fast food restaurant drive-through, preparing ahead of time helps me stay on track. I may even start experimenting by adding bananas in the pan first or swapping honey for the brown sugar.

 

This recipe has it all: healthy fruit, whole-grain goodness, and a touch of protein. Bake a pan of this breakfast treat on the weekend, and enjoy it for 2 to 4 days.

 

Thanks to our friends at The University of Maine Cooperative Extension for this tasty recipe!

 

Blueberry Baked Oatmeal

2 cups dry oatmeal (old fashioned or quick)
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup frozen blueberries
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1-1/2 cups nonfat milk
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 egg
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil

 

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. 

 

In a large bowl, stir together the oatmeal, brown sugar, blueberries, baking powder, and cinnamon (and walnuts if you choose to add them).

 

In a medium bowl, combine the milk, applesauce, egg, and oil. Mix well with a fork or whisk.

 

Add the milk mixture to the dry ingredients and stir well. Pour into a greased, 8-inch, square baking dish.

 

Bake at 375 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes. Serve warm.
