Oatmeal is my go to breakfast everyday of the week, but if I want something a little extra delicious I make this baked blueberry oatmeal that is loaded with banana, cinnamon, and pecans. It comes together quickly and it stores really well.

Health Benefits of Oatmeal

Oatmeal as a breakfast or snack is a great additional to your diet. Oatmeal is loaded with protein and fiber so it keeps you full for longer. It’s also loaded with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

Can I make this baked oatmeal vegan?

Absolutely! Instead of using eggs use flax eggs. To make a flax egg mix 1 tbsp of ground flaxseed with 2 1/2 tbsp of water and let sit for 5 minutes. It will form a sticky paste that works to hold everything together, similar to an egg.

Also, make sure to use a plant based milk. I use almond milk and it works great.

Can I make this baked oatmeal gluten free?

Make sure to use gluten free oats, but besides that this recipe is completely gluten free.

How to Store

You can make this now and then have it throughout the week. I would bake it before you store it. This oatmeal keeps well in the refrigerator, covered, for 4 to 5 days. You can eat it cold or reheat it in the microwave for 1 minute.
