We’ve been making this baked oatmeal a lot lately. It’s warm, hearty and perfectly sweet from the berries. It also lasts a few days and reheats well...all things that I’m quickly learning are essential for new parents.  BLUEBERRY BAKED OATMEAL // Written below feeds a crowd (8-10). Half the recipe for a 9x9 dish (4-6 people)


4 cups blueberries, fresh or frozen 
4 cups rolled oats
2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp baking powder

2 cups milk of choice 
2 cups pear juice (or more milk + 1/4 cup maple syrup)
3 T neutral oil or melted butter 
4 tsp vanilla extract

morning glory alternative // replace the dry ingredients and blueberries with:
2 cups grated apple + 2 cups grated carrot
3 1/2 cups rolled oats + 1/2 cup steel cut oats 
2 tsp cinnamon + 1 tsp ginger
2 tsp baking powder

What to do:

In your baking dish, stir together the dry ingredients, then add the blueberries.

Add the wet ingredients right into the dish, and stir everything to combine. 

Bake in a 375 oven for 25 minutes. 

If reheating in the microwave, add a splash of milk.
