Aldi had their blueberries on special this week. Only $.89 for a pint, so I bought a few. As I was sitting here tonight thinking about what to fix for dinner I kept thinking about creating a baked oatmeal recipe. So I decided to be unconventional with my dinner plans and went ahead and headed to the kitchen. I created these blueberry baked oatmeal cups!
A couple of weeks ago I created a recipe for these oatmeal cups with banana and walnut and they are SO good! So I wanted to try using some other fruit combinations. Blueberries are a perfect choice!
This recipe was actually super simple to whip together! It really only took me about 5-10 minutes to throw together the ingredients and pop this in the oven. And it made my house smell pretty good too. I love to use a silicone muffin pan for these! This one is great! I never need to grease these and the cups fall right out.
I did use just a small amount of sweetener in this recipe. If you prefer your oatmeal sweeter, then feel free to double the maple syrup. I’ve just been cutting back on the sweeteners in general, even the natural ones. So now I find that if I add too much it’s actually too sweet for me (and as a recovering sugar junkie, I never thought I’d say that!)
I also chose to use unsweetened almond milk in my recipe, but cow’s milk and coconut milk would both also work well in this. This blueberry baked oatmeal cups recipe is very heart-healthy and it’s naturally gluten-free as well. Just make sure the oats you buy haven’t been processed in a factory that also processes gluten grains or there could be slight traces!
These oatmeal cups are great when you need breakfast on the go. They are portable too!
