Baked Blueberry Coconut Oatmeal


When Caleb wakes up he usually says four things: hi dad, horses, mommy, and “oat-me.”  He is always excited to start the day and loves eating oatmeal with mommy. We eat oatmeal for breakfast almost every morning.

I usually keep things simple by adding a banana and cinnamon to our oatmeal, but sometimes I like to mix things up by making baked oatmeal. Our new favorite oatmeal is Baked Blueberry Coconut Oatmeal. I love this recipe because it is so simple and we can eat it for almost an entire week. It is great reheated in the microwave with a splash of milk. I love easy breakfast mornings that taste so good!


I knew Caleb would love this oatmeal because he is obsessed with blueberries. Since blueberries aren’t in season and cost an arm and a leg, I used frozen berries and they worked out just fine. The oatmeal turned a slight blue purplish color, but we didn’t mind. I think Caleb liked the added color:)

I used coconut oil instead of butter and added in shredded coconut. Coconut lovers are going to go crazy for this baked oatmeal.


Baked Blueberry Coconut Oatmeal is great for serving a crowd or you can make a big pan and reheat it during the week. This recipe makes an 8×8 pan, but you can double it to fill a 9×13 pan.

Warm up with Baked Blueberry Oatmeal. It’s a great way to start the day! And if you are looking for other ways to use coconut oil, here are a few of our favorite recipes:


Baked Blueberry Coconut Oatmeal

Yield: Serves 6

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 40 minutes

Total Time: 50 minutes

Baked oatmeal with blueberries and coconut is a great morning treat. Make a big pan to feed a crowd or to reheat during the week for an easy healthy breakfast!


2 cups rolled oats
1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 cups skim milk
1 large egg
3 tablespoons coconut oil, melted and cooled slightly
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups blueberries (fresh or frozen)


1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8x8 square baking dish and set aside.

2. In a medium bowl, mix together the oats, coconut, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.

3. In another medium bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, coconut oil, and vanilla. The coconut oil might get a little lumpy, but that is ok. It will melt when baking.

4. Arrange two-thirds of the blueberries on the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Pour the oat mixture evenly over the berries. Pour the milk mixture over the oats. Gently shake the baking dish to make sure the milk covers the oats evenly. Sprinkle the remaining blueberries on top of the oats.

5. Bake for 40 minutes, until the top is golden and oatmeal is set. Let cool for 5 minutes and serve warm.

Note-this baked oatmeal is great reheated in the microwave. We like to add a splash of milk!

  21. Heather — February 18, 2013 @ 10:20 am

    Have you thought about baking this in muffin tins for easy portions? How long do you think they would bake in a muffin tin?

    • Two Peas replied: — February 18th, 2013 @ 1:42 pm

      I haven’t made this recipe in muffin tins, but I have made other baked oatmeal recipes and it always turns out great! I would bake them for half the time. Just watch it:)

  22. Megan {Country Cleaver} — February 18, 2013 @ 10:30 am

    I really have to get on the baked oat meal bandwagon! Blue berry and coconut is one of my favorite flavor combos. Caleb has impecable taste in his morning “oat-me!”. Geez that kid is too cute for words!

    Hi Maria! This looks like my kind of breakfast. I make baked oatmeal a lot during the chilly winter months. I like to add strawberries. Blueberry and coconut would be a nice change up. I love using coconut oil :)

  27. Carla @ Carlas Confections — February 18, 2013 @ 11:12 am

    This sounds delish, but my favorite part is that “horses” is also on his top list of words hahaha. Love the little stories you always add to posts!

  32. Marcie @ Flavor the Moments — February 18, 2013 @ 12:37 pm

    I can’t make enough baked oatmeal, and this one has one of my favorite flavor combos — blueberries and coconut. I think maple syrup would be fabulous in here, too!

  33. Heidi — February 18, 2013 @ 1:08 pm

    After making your amazing Coconut granola……that I am totally addicted to…..I will make every coconut recipe you come out with! Yum, yum….this look awesome! Thanks so much.

  35. Leslie Seror — February 18, 2013 @ 2:49 pm
