Easiest Blueberry Coconut Oatmeal Bake

I need easy, healthy go-to breakfasts for my busy weeks. If I’m not prepared, I find myself nabbing breakfast at Starbucks or other coffee shops which is fine but not the healthiest and expensive as well. If you have a few minutes to prep on the weekend, you can so easily put together an oatmeal bake that will last your whole coming week. Some people don’t like overnight oats and others may not have time to prepare oatmeal hot in the morning so this recipe for the Easiest Blueberry Coconut Oatmeal Bake alleviates a lot of pressure from busy work or school days.

Oats are an important part of the diet because they are rich in nutrients and the type of fiber that helps lower cholesterol. Because of their high fiber content, they help keep you full for hours. If you eat oat on their own – maybe with a little sugar on them, you’re eating carbs, carbs and more carbs without balancing with protein and fat. I like this recipe because it includes coconut milk and oil in addition to antioxidant rich blueberries and a protein source: almonds. This took me about 10 minutes to prepare and 30 minutes to bake.

Ingredients

  • 1 egg
  • 13.5 oz can reduced fat/lite coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon cardamom
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • Optional add-ins: almonds, shredded coconut, extra blueberries

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees and mist an 8x8 square glass baking dish with cooking spray (I used coconut oil spray!). In a mixing bowl, beat egg then add coconut milk, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, cardamom and salt. Stir in oats, blueberries and (optional add ins if using) and mix well to combine. Spread oatmeal mixture in prepared baking dish and bake for 30-40 minutes until top is a light toasty brown.

Notes

This recipe is lightly sweet and great for breakfast (it's not really supposed to be a dessert). I recommend serving topped with yogurt or powdered sugar for a sweeter touch.
