Hearty oatmeal topped with maple roasted blueberries, almonds, and chia seeds. The perfect way to start any day!
Prep Time
5 minutes
Cook Time
10 minutes
Total Time
15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  1. 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.
  2. 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.

  1. Wow. That oatmeal looks marvelous. I have never tried roasting blueberries before, and I’m kind of wondering to myself why I have never thought of doing it. Given how crazy for blueberries my family is, this oatmeal is sure to land on our breakfast table soon. Thanks for the recipe.

  2. When fresh berries aren’t in season, we like to take freeze-dried fruit (1/2 cup) and put it in the spice grinder. Mix with 1/4-1/2 cup of regular sugar and voila – instant sprinkles without all those weird ingredients that make up candy-coated sprinkles. We’ll do different colored fruits and put them in separate containers and they keep for months. The kids get to sprinkle it over their oatmeal and make whatever rainbow designs they want.

    The other thing we do is make a chia jam out of frozen berries, chia seeds, sugar and lemon and the kids get to mix that into their oatmeal too if they want. You get to control the sugar and the chia makes it “glutinous” enough to be a jam.

    I’m excited to try roasting blueberries though for yet another alternative!

  3. Just wondering if the roasted blueberries can be kept in the frig after roasting? I like to meal prep all of our weekly breakfast and lunches as I’m out the door by 5am and dont have extra time in the morning
