Sharing is caring!

Tired of your kids eating cereal for breakfast? You will love my Blueberry Baked Oatmeal recipe! This freezer-friendly baked oatmeal recipe is easy to throw together, bakes up nicely, and is a great breakfast treat to keep in your freezer for those extra busy mornings.

Baked Oatmeal Recipe with Blueberries in a bowl

Before moving to Pennsylvania, I had never heard of baked oatmeal but I was thrilled to have my first taste while on vacation with my in-laws. She made it before the trip and it was easy to warm up that morning. We like to have it warm with milk poured over the top. Since that first taste, this recipe has been on our regular rotation for hot breakfasts.

We serve it when guests come over and it’s perfect for the busy holiday season. Blueberry Baked Oatmeal is the perfect addition for any brunch you might be planning as well.

Making baked oatmeal regularly has really helped us to cut way back on the cereal consumption in our house. I knew that I didn’t always have time to make eggs for the kids every morning and I wanted something as easy as cereal for busy school mornings.

I can pull together this recipe in just 5 minutes on a Sunday afternoon and our family will enjoy it all week long.

Ingredients for Baked Oatmeal

This is a Freezer Friendly Baked Oatmeal Recipe!

One nice thing about this recipe is that it freezes up nicely and is handy to have in the freezer for busy mornings. Baked oatmeal is an excellent food gift to give to a new mom or new neighbor. When I freeze it for the kids to use in the mornings, I like to cut the baked oatmeal into pieces and wrap up individual servings. This makes our mornings go smooth since they are easy to grab quickly and reheat.

While I usually focus on dinner meals to keep stocked in the freezer, lately I’ve been adding in more breakfast and lunch items. Baking up our favorite banana bread or this baked oatmeal is a quick and easy way to add some breakfast items to my freezer stash.

Things to Add in your Baked Oatmeal

Baked oatmeal on its own is delicious but what makes recipes like this fun is that you can add in many different things. While we often use blueberries, there are many ways to mix up the recipe and add your favorite fruit or nuts. Some of our favorites are below:

  • Blueberries
  • Chocolate chips
  • Strawberries
  • Peaches
  • Apple
  • Pear
  • Pecans or walnuts

I hope you enjoy this recipe! Getting kids to eat oatmeal can be tricky but they will love this baked oatmeal recipe. Remember to mention me if you post a picture of your baked oatmeal on Instagram (tag me @heydonna ) I love seeing your photos and hearing how you liked my recipes. I hope your entire family enjoys this new breakfast treat!

Tips for Making Blueberry Baked Oatmeal:

▶︎ Use good oats! We love to use mostly rolled oats because they hold up really well in this recipe and are more nutritious.

▶︎ This is a great make-ahead recipe. I’ve found that this recipe just gets better over time. I like to make it the night before so it can sit overnight.

▶︎ Try making blueberry baked oatmeal in muffin tins instead. This way you have small single servings that are perfect for busy mornings.

▶︎ Try pouring warm milk or milk substitute over your baked oatmeal (it’s so good!)

    Thanks for the idea! Is this good to eat “dry” like a bar?

      Sarah, it is very cake-like and might be a little crumbly but I think you could make it work. We do eat it dry without milk often, so the milk is not necessary. You can also make these as muffins instead. I’ll have to experiment with the recipe because having a bar would be great!
