How to Make Healthy Banana Blueberry Baked Oatmeal

First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Then, decide if you are baking this oatmeal in an 8×8 pan or muffins. Spray whichever pan you choose to use with non-stick cooking spray. The recipe does not need to be altered and can be used as written for either pan.

Then, in a mixing bowl, mash the bananas. Be sure to use overripe bananas for this recipe so they mash well and have lots of sweetness. For tips on how to store ripe bananas visit this post! Next, add all remaining ingredients except blueberries to the bowl and stir well. Then, gently fold in blueberries.

Pour mixture into a greased 8×8 baking dish or divide mixture among 12 muffin cups. Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes (8×8 pan) or 25-30 minutes (muffin cups) or until lightly golden brown.

Serve immediately or store for later. Store baked oatmeal in an airtight container in the refrigerator. When ready to eat, microwave for 30 seconds to heat up a slice if desired.
