You can whip up this blueberry baked oatmeal, pop it in the oven and then grab yourself a cup of coffee in a fun mug and have a “mama moment”. I love taking a half hour in the morning to just be….reading my Bible, praying, journaling, goal-setting, some light yoga, thinking about my day, drinking coffee…if I can carve out these minutes to realign myself with God and attune myself to His purposes for my day things just go so much better.

And things go really well when I have a hearty breakfast ready for my boys when the roll out of bed. These two silly boys wake up HUNGRY!! (As opposed to my sweet girl who prefers some wake up time before eating, like mama.)
I could barely keep them out of this blueberry baked oatmeal long enough to shoot these photographs. Griffin kept saying “cookie peas!” and trying to get a bite, so finally his persistence and overall cuteness was rewarded!
This blueberry baked oatmeal also makes a delicious breakfast for dinner option! (We LOVE breakfast for dinner at our house!!)

A few questions you may have about making this healthy baked oatmeal…
Do you refrigerate baked oatmeal?
Yes! Once it has been cooked and cooled I like to refrigerate my healthy baked oatmeal leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge.

Can I double this recipe?
Can you bake this recipe with quick oats?
Yes! You can use either quick oats or old fashioned/rolled oats (same thing, different name–don’t ask me why!) in this recipe. Using quick oats gives this a more tightly packed texture than the rolled oats version, but you can absolutely do it either way and it will still be delicious! Definitely more of a preference thing!
Yum. Just yum. This is a delicious breakfast recipe that will make people smile! I love that this blueberry baked oatmeal is comfort food level delicious, but won’t leave you with a carb/sugar crash at 10 am!
I like to serve it with milk, extra blueberries, and turkey sausage on the side. And coffee. Always coffee. It’s the mom fuel we need, right?
This week my Kindergartener and husband are off for fall break and we are soaking in some lazy mornings and working on a few projects around the house. When we moved we just put stuff places but now that we’ve been here almost a year and a half it’s time to really purposefully sort, organize, and store things in the best places possible!
I’m no organizational wizard, but one trick I use is to move things to the first place you looked for it.

First spot you looked for safety pins? That’s where they should be! I’m also trying to find little groupings by purpose like a spot for everything I need to hang a picture on my wall and another spot with everything I need to change a battery in a toy. Our house is a great size, but it doesn’t have a lot of storage, so we are learning how to be smart with what we have! I am very basic so I really liked The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up (you can get the audio book for free when you sign up for a free trial of Audible!) and I have also enjoyed listening to Allie Casazza’s podcast, The Purpose Show and follow @House.Peace on instagram for all the good organizing and home tips!
Then later on in the week we are heading back to the Fort Wayne, Indiana area for some more fun fall adventures! We are planning to go to the Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo, Science Central, take the kids to Promenade Park, an apple cider mill, exploring Shipshewana and Chain O Lakes State Park! It’s gonna be a party! Feeling super blessed that even though we aren’t jetting off to the other side of the globe or anything wild, we get to spend the week together making our home a place of order and rest and adventuring together in Indiana!
We will for sure be chowing down on this delicious blueberry baked oatmeal at some point though!
If you like this recipe be sure to Pin it for later!
