Let’s start the week off on a healthy note…..
Okay, so it’s not chocolate, but bear with me. One can not live on chocolate alone. Or so I keep telling myself.
There are several great things about baked oatmeal…one, if you are not a fan of regular oatmeal b/c of it’s gloppy-ness (that’s a word right?!) then baked oatmeal is for you. It comes together in a neat, portable form when baked. Which leads to number two – it’s portable! Need something healthy to eat on the go for you and your kids- baked oatmeal can be cut into squares, and voila – healthy breakfast to go.
This recipe can be changed up to include whatever your family likes – not a blueberry fan….sub in apples or cranberries, or strawberries – whatever. Don’t like lemon? Skip it. You could add orange juice instead. Or apple juice. Or no juice! I’m seeing an orange cranberry baked oatmeal in my future. Anyway…you get the point. It’s worth a try. You can also add chocolate chips if you are trying to bribe your kids to eat oatmeal. Not that I would do that. *ahem* Nope. Not me. (okayyyy, so that’s a total lie. I will add chocolate to almost anything!)
Meyer Lemon Blueberry Baked Oatmeal adapted from at babble.com
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
zest of 1 Meyer lemon (a regular lemon is also fine)
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg & 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled (I used pureed pumpkin instead of butter) Could also use applesauce
2 cups skim milk (with juice of your zested lemon added – let sit for 5 minutes to make ‘buttermilk)
1/2 cup sugar (I used 1/4 cup NuNaturals Stevia Baking Blend)
2 cups blueberries, fresh or frozen

I need to try this. I'm the only one who will eat oatmeal, and I think it's mostly a texture thing.
I am so making this! I have meyer lemons yet to use! 🙂
Looks good! My baked granola has never looked this good, so I will definitely have to save this recipe for later.
I love this! Every time I think Meyer lemons are surely out of season by now, the grocery store gets more so yay for another Meyer lemon recipe. 🙂
