My Thoughts on this Recipe

This Blueberry Muffin Baked Oats recipe from Lauren’s Lovely Kitchen is perfect for when you have a craving for a big ol’ blueberry muffin, but you don’t particularly want to indulge. It’s absolutely heavenly and a cross between a cake-like texture and oatmeal.

Ingredients

The main ingredients are blueberries, oats, banana, milk, peanut butter and maple syrup. View her original recipe for a single ramekin here.

Recommendations

When I made this, I had fresh blueberries, so I elected to use those rather than frozen, and I thought they worked great! I also didn’t have almond butter, so I substituted peanut butter, and I loved it! I have made them now several times with peanut butter, and I don’t think I will change it, but I’m sure almond butter would be delicious too.

When I took the first bite, I was not sure I liked it. It is not very sweet, which in a way is kind of nice and grew on me. That said, I have since altered the maple syrup from 1 teaspoon to 2 teaspoons per ramekin.

Since the original recipe was for a single portion, I have made the changes I make to the recipe and placed the measurements for four ramekins below. You can halve the recipe for two, if you’d like.

Future Ideas/Variations

Lauren has another recipe for Apple Baked Oats, that I’m sure is delicious. I also saw she had one for Chocolate Chip Baked Oats, and I would also be curious to try a carrot cake version, strawberry, and perhaps a banana walnut. I think once you have the basic recipe, it should be easy to mix it up, and I will be experimenting with it!

Final thoughts

This is a very yummy recipe that is different from your average breakfasts! Try it this weekend!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 2/3 cup milk of choice
  • 4 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries or raspberries

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Combine all ingredients except the berries in a bowl. Gently stir in the berries.
  • Grease the four 6 oz. ramekins. Evenly divide the mixture into the ramekins. To make the oats look prettier, place a few berries on the top of the oats and press them into the mixture.
  • Bake for 25 minutes.

Notes

If you do not want to bake all four ramekins, you can bake fewer, refrigerate the leftover dough for one day and bake the rest the second day. I would not recommend keeping them for longer than that because the fruit breaks down.
