Baked Oatmeal

Baked oatmeal is one of our family’s favorite breakfasts. I try to make a pan every week, especially during the winter months when we are craving something hot that will warm us up. Oatmeal always hits the spot and keeps our bellies full until lunch time.

I love mixing up our baked oatmeal flavors and this Blueberry Maple Baked Oatmeal is perfection. The oatmeal is packed with juicy blueberries, lots of cinnamon, and sweetened with pure maple syrup.

How to Make Baked Oatmeal

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8×8-inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the oats, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt. Make sure you use old-fashioned oats and not quick oats.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the milk, pure maple syrup, melted butter, egg, and vanilla. Pour the wet ingredients over the oat mixture and stir until combined. Gently fold in 1 cup of the blueberries. You can use fresh or frozen blueberries, both work great.
  • Pour the mixture into the prepared pan. Sprinkle the remaining blueberries and chopped nuts on top of the oats, if using. Pecans, almonds, walnuts, and candied pecans are all great options. The nuts give the baked oatmeal a nice crunch and I love the extra kick of protein and healthy fats.
  • Bake for 40 minutes, until the top is golden and oatmeal is set. Let cool for 5 minutes before serving.
  • If you need the oatmeal to be gluten-free, you can use gluten-free oats. If you need the recipe to be vegan, you can use a flax egg and melted coconut oil instead of butter.

How to Store

Leftover baked oatmeal will keep in the refrigerator for up to one week. So you can bake it the night before or even several nights before so breakfast is easy on the morning.

To store baked oatmeal, let the oatmeal cool to room temperature and then place in an air tight container and place in the fridge.

And trust me, you will want to have leftovers because having baked oatmeal in the fridge is a breakfast lifesaver on busy mornings. This recipe doubles easily, just use a 9×13-inch pan and double all of the ingredients.

How to Reheat

To reheat baked oatmeal, add your desired amount to a microwave safe bowl and add a little splash of milk. Reheat until heated through, about 45 to 60 seconds. You can top your oatmeal with an extra drizzle of maple syrup if you want a little extra sweetness.

    Just made this recipe this morning! Turned out awesome! I used coconut milk & coconut oil. Warm & delicious breakfast! Thanks for the great recipe.

  2. I would like to make this. I’ve got your white chili and pumpkin pie already in progress! I only have quick oats I think. Will it be completely ruined if I used quick oats? Thanks!

    1. I haven’t tried it with quick oats, the texture will be a little different and you might need a little more.

    I don’t eat too much oatmeal but that’s about to change. Just Wonderful! Love this fruit and nut oatmeal!!! Almost tastes like bread pudding. I never leave reviews but had to for this. Just dropped cinnamon to 1 teaspoon.

  4. 5 stars
    I made this last night, the smell was incredible, and it turned out wonderful. I’m not a big fan of oatmeal, but the combination of all the ingredients plus the blueberries is just delicious.
    I used regular milk and honey,worked perfect.

  5. This was easy to make and so delicious!!! We warmed up the leftovers throughout the week for a quick hot breakfast and it was just as good as the first time. It would be great to make when you have overnight guests.
