Start your morning with this Blueberry Bliss Bake. So easy and tastes delicious.
It’s a snow day for my 1st grader so we are planning to stay warm in our jammies all day. And I knew we needed something special for breakfast to celebrate an extra home day.
Enter: Blueberry Bliss Bake
Think a combination of oatmeal and a crisp and you’ve got the right idea for this bake. It warm and comforting and did I mention easy? No? Well, it’s incredibly easy to whip up on a weekend morning, for brunch, or a special breakfast on a snow day.
Plus, it’s gluten free, dairy free and sweetened with just a touch of pure maple syrup. I love serving it with a side of eggs for some protein and to balance out the meal a bit.
I’ve been keeping this recipe for awhile and finally added it to the Winter 4-Week Meal Plan for a weekend breakfast option. And let’s just say you’ve been loving it. So I thought I’d share it with you all too because it’s too good not to share. I love a no fuss breakfast, one that everyone gobbles up, and this checks all the boxes.
Use any fruit you want
I love using frozen fruit because it’s cheaper than fresh and I don’t feel stressed about having to use it up right away...especially when it comes to fresh berries which can go bad so quickly. So I always opt for frozen and they work perfectly for this recipe.
The thing about this oatmeal is that it’s a perfect blank canvas to add all kinds of awesome flavors. The recipe calls for blueberries but the last time I made it I was out of frozen blueberries so I used frozen strawberries instead and it was just as delicious. I did let them thaw a little and then cut them into smaller pieces. I think I might try frozen peaches when summer rolls around! The possibilities are really endless.
If you’re short on time in the mornings or just don’t want to mess with it, prep everything ahead of time, cover and store in the fridge overnight. It does take 35-40 minutes to bake in the morning so you could start baking as soon as you wake up on a weekday morning or save for the weekend.
Perfect for meal prep
If you love meal prepping or just love the benefits of it, this would be a perfect option. I’d bake it on the weekend and then portion it out into containers to have for the week. You can just warm it up each morning or I’m sure it would be yummy cold. I did add a side of eggs to ours to get some protein so you could totally meal prep some hard boiled eggs to have with it.
Hope you love this Blueberry Bliss Bake as much as we do and be sure to share your recreations with me on Instagram. I love seeing what you’re cooking up.
