It’s Friday morning and that calls for a semi relaxed morning with some Yoga, blogging, and breakfast! I have a ten pound box of Michigan blueberries that my Mom brought me and it calls for some baked oatmeal.
I can’t believe how big and delicious they are this year. If you’ve never had blueberries like this you have been missing out. One small warning however; after tasting these the piddly supermarket berries will lose all their appeal. So proceed with caution.Like I said, I may or may not have (Okay, there’s no may not have in this equation… I totally have) been eating 2-3 bowls of these guys every day.
This morning I decided that some baked oatmeal would be the perfect way to use some of the berries, and I adapted this recipe from Emily Reviews.
Prep time: 5-10 Minutes
Cook time: 35-40 Minutes
2 Cups Rolled Oats
1 Cup Almond Milk
1/2 Cup Apple Sauce
1 Frozen Banana, thawed and mashed
2 Tbsp Cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1.1/2 tsp Baking Powder
3 Tbsp Sugar (I used Xylitol)
2 Tbsp Flax Seeds ground
1.1/2 cups Blueberries
Mix all the ingredients, starting with dry and moving to the wet. I used my coffee grinder to grind the flax seeds. I also threw in a mashed banana because I am all about the flavor that this gives oatmeal. Spray your baking dish with cooking spray (I use spray olive oil) and bake for 35-40 minutes
I poured almond milk on mine and some chopped toasted almonds to serve.
