This version is studded with blueberry for a sweet, juicy burst of flavor in every bite. It also has protein powder for a protein boost which will keep you fuller, longer.
Baked oatmeal is so simple to make. Made with minimal ingredients and mixed in just one bowl. Satisfy your blueberry craving with this single serve version!
Here’s What You Need
Here’s a list of everything you need to make this delicious recipe:
rolled oats – I recommend using rolled oats because they are less processed and give a good texture to the baked oatmeal.
dairy-free milk – I like to use unsweetened almond milk, but any dairy-free milk will work.
vanilla protein powder – I recommend Nuzest protein powder (it’s my current fave) but any works!
almond butter – look for natural almond butter where the ingredients are just almonds and salt.
blueberries – the star of the show! You can use fresh or frozen blueberries.
chia seeds – optional but I like to add for extra fiber and healthy fats.
baking powder – helps the baked oatmeal rise and lightens the texture of the baked oatmeal.
cinnamon – one of the key ingredients you’ll find in almost all my baked oatmeal recipes.
maple syrup – add a hint of sweetness with maple syrup.
sea salt – just a pinch to bring all of the flavors together.
What if I Need More Than 1 Serving?
A lot of people love the idea of a single serving because it offers easy portion control, but if you need more than one serving, I created this blueberry baked oatmeal recipe that makes six servings! It’s great for a crowd or if you want to bake once and portion out pieces of the baked oatmeal for breakfast all week long! I also have these blueberry oatmeal cups if you want your baked oatmeal in muffin form! These are really portable and perfect for kiddos.
If you're cooking for a crowd or want to meal prep a larger portion, make my blueberry baked oatmeal that makes 6 servings!
Can I Make It Ahead of Time
This recipe is best enjoyed right after baking! It does take about 35 minutes to prepare, but much of that time is hands-off cooking time!
If you want to try prepping it in advance you can combine all the ingredients, place in a covered container and then transfer to the baking dish and bake the next morning. I haven’t fully tested this method, but it should work just fine.
