Maple Roasted Blueberry Almond Oatmeal-a hearty bowl of oatmeal topped with maple roasted blueberries, chopped almonds, and chia seeds. A great way to start any day!
We are an oatmeal family. Sure, we love other breakfast foods, but oatmeal is our staple. We eat oatmeal at least six mornings a week, sometimes seven because we love it that much. You might think that sounds boring, but I bet you will change your mind after you try our Maple Roasted Blueberry Almond Oatmeal. You will want to eat this oatmeal seven days a week too!
Oatmeal is good on it’s own, but we love playing around with fun toppings.
Maple roasted blueberries are a great oatmeal topping and so easy to make! Drizzle fresh blueberries with pure maple syrup and roast them in the oven until they are about to pop!
Spoon the sweet and juicy blueberries over a warm bowl of oatmeal. I also like to add chopped almonds, chia seeds, and an extra drizzle of maple syrup. Just five simple ingredients for breakfast perfection! We could eat this oatmeal every single day!

Maple Roasted Blueberry Almond Oatmeal
- Prep Time
- 5 minutes
- Cook Time
- 10 minutes
- Total Time
- 15 minutes
- 6 oz blueberries
- 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
- 1 cup Quaker Old Fashioned Oats
- 1 3/4 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk or your milk of choice to prepare oats according to package
- 1/3 cup chopped almonds
- 2 teaspoons chia seeds
- Additional maple syrup for serving, if desired
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Place blueberries on baking sheet and drizzle with maple syrup. Toss until blueberries are coated. Place the sheet in the oven and roast for 8 minutes or until blueberries are juicy and ready to pop.
While the blueberries are roasting, make the oatmeal according to package (I used milk instead of water). Combine milk and oats in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring often to prevent boiling over. Cook until thickened; divide oatmeal between two serving bowls. Top with maple roasted blueberries, almonds, and chia seeds. Drizzle with additional maple syrup, if desired. Serve immediately.
