Baked Blueberry Banana Oatmeal

I use to hate oatmeal. I use to think it was a total “grandma” food. I guess now you can say it proved me otherwise or I just turned into a grandma. Who knows?? :’) I typically cook oatmeal on the stovetop or make overnight oats since it’s easiest. However, this morning – I decided to bake it to give it a try. DANG, it totally ignited my taste buds!

When I baked it, it was super moist (sorry if you hate that word), kept warm for a really longer time & had a nice crisp on the outside. I added mashed banana, fresh blueberries and almond butter into the baked oatmeal – naturally sweetened with fresh fruit w/ some creaminess. That’s what I like (Bruno Mars reference).

It was so good I might make the same breakfast again REAL soon. I am a meal repeater and I have no shame – if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it :’) Recipe deets below!
