blueberry muffin baked oatmeal

last week, work was insane in the membrane.  it was the first week of classes for our students so we were busy with schedule adjustment questions.  one thing, well besides some awesome coworkers/friends and chris, that got me through last week was this blueberry muffin baked oatmeal.

i’ve made a few other baked oatmeal recipes before – banana nut, apple cinnamon, and pumpkin, but this one may be my favorite.  it makes sense that it’s at the top of my list because it was inspired by my favorite blueberry muffin recipe.  this baked oatmeal is full of plump blueberries and then topped with a delicious streusel crumb topping that makes it extra special.

i had this for breakfast every day last week and i didn’t get sick of it by the end of the week.  it was a yummy and actually pretty healthy treat each morning and it kept me full and satisfied until lunch time.  so i had plenty of energy to help our students which was exactly what i needed.  perfecto!

just like the other baked oatmeal recipes, mix up the dry ingredients in one bowl and the wet in another.  pour the wet ingredients into the bowl of the dry ingredients and mix until combined.  then fold in the blueberry and pour in a greased 8 x 8 inch pan.

then mix the streusel crumb topping ingredients in a small bowl with a fork until it’s nice and crumbly.  sprinkle the topping evenly over the oatmeal mixture.

bake at 350 degrees f for 30-35 minutes or until the oatmeal is golden brown and set.

time to eat!
