We love blueberries – they’re so yummy, and healthy, too! The other day, we wanted to shake up our breakfast routine a little and try something new, so we made Baked Blueberry Oatmeal!
This is another great recipe where kids can do most of the work. The ingredients are simple, and with applesauce replacing some sugar and butter, it’s even a healthy-ish breakfast choice!

You don’t need a mixer, you can mix everything by hand.
E loves the whisk
but has figured out that eventually, when the batter gets too thick, she’s better off with a different utensil.
I did have to hold the bowl for her when she scraped the batter into the baking dish
but after that, she was able to smooth out the blueberry oatmeal mixture herself.
I kind of expected the oatmeal to turn browner on top, but it only really did so at the very edges. Make sure not to leave it in the oven for too long!
This is really not a very sweet breakfast, and I like that. If it’s not sweet enough for you, feel free to add sugar on top before you bake or pour some syrup over it before you serve it! Or serve it with yogurt – I think I’ll try that next time!
