Recipe Wednesday - Baked Blueberry Oatmeal

Someone posted this link on one of my mom boards and I just had to try it out, since Baby C loves oatmeal and blueberries. Especially blueberries. He'd eat a pint a day, easily, if I'd let him. It's from Recipe Zaar.

Baked Blueberry Oatmeal

4 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 cup applesauce
1 1/2 cups milk
3 cups quick oats or regular oats
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon (or more, to taste)
1 cup blueberries


This is a "two bowl" recipe. In the first bowl, mix the butter, brown sugar, eggs, applesauce and milk. In the second bowl, whisk together the baking powder, salt, and cinnamon, and then mix in the oats. Add the dry bowl to the wet bowl and mix to combine. Stir in blueberries.

Pour into greased 9 x 9 inch baking dish. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 35 minutes. (You can make this a night in advance and refrigerate overnight, just add 5-8 minutes to the baking time)

This one went over well in our house. Both Charlies enjoyed it for breakfast, and then I cut the rest into pieces and froze them on a baking sheet. They aren't quite the same after being frozen, they take on a consistency that's more like oatmeal than cake, but it keeps me from having to make a fresh bowl every morning. I think this is going to be a winter staple for Baby C.
