Good Morning! Here I am, just as promised with a blueberry breakfast treat to take you through the coming fall and winter. I am sooo not ready for cold weather but it will come none the less, won’t it?
One of the most popular breakfast items we served at Morton Street Coffee was our baked oatmeal. Blueberry was the top pick but we also served apple. To this day, I am still making it for people. They order it by the pan full to keep in their freezer.
Blueberry Baked Oatmeal……….
and Apple Baked Oatmeal.
You see those crumbs in the bottom of the pan? Don’t throw them away!
Scrape them all into a bowl. They are your reward.
I warmed mine up, topped them with a little milk and some fresh blueberries and had myself a little afternoon snack. Heaven in a bowl!
Now you can all make your own whenever the mood strikes. After it is baked and cooled, I cut it into twelve squares, wrap each square in plastic wrap and put it in the freezer. It keeps so well in the freezer. You can have it any morning you like; simply take it out of the freezer, put in a bowl, top it with some milk, and pop it in the microwave for a minute and a half. That is it!!! In a minute and a half, your bowl of cozy goodness is ready. Make yourself a whole pan of cozy breakfast goodness, take care of yourself, treat yourself. Enjoy!

- 1 cup vegetable oil
- 1 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 5 eggs
- 7 cups regular oatmeal
- 4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups milk
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 1/2 cup fresh or frozen blueberries (or 1 large chopped apple or whatever fruit you want)
If you want to make this in two eight or nine inch square pans, you will have to increase your bake time by approximately 10 minutes as it will be thicker. But it is great to make it this way to give as a gift--- One for you and one for a friend!
|Put all of the ingredients into a large bowl and beat with your mixer on high until mixture takes on a glossy look. About 2 minutes. Pour into a greased jelly roll pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes.|
