I’m sure many of you share one of my New Year’s resolutions: eat more wholesome foods. I spend so much time testing recipes that when it comes to cooking for myself, I really need something super simple. This baked oatmeal satisfies everything I’m looking for right now: wholesome, simple, and super tasty!
I love putting fresh fruit in my oatmeal, but I don’t always have fresh fruit on hand. Bonne Maman INTENSE Fruit Spreads are the perfect alternative: it’s shelf stable while still packing a heavy fruit punch. There’s more fruit than the original Bonne Maman preserves recipe, and it’s got 39% less sugar. In fact, Bonne Maman INTENSE Fruit Spread is so fruity that I found myself just spooning some straight from the jar. I could even taste the texture of the blueberries.
Another reason I love this recipe is because it’s so versatile. I’m not normally one to “meal prep,” but I loved making this at the beginning of the week and having breakfast ready-to-go as the week got busier. It’s also perfect to bring to brunch— it’s just sweet enough, yet it’s super hearty and filling from the abundance of oats.
The below recipe is very forgiving. Have medium eggs instead of large eggs? No problem. Want to add a few more oats since you’re at the end of the container? Go for it. This is a breakfast casserole of sorts—free styling is encouraged!
Baked blueberry Oatmeal Recipe
1 (8.2-ounce) jar Bonne Maman INTENSE Blueberry Fruit Spread
3 cups rolled oats
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 large eggs
1 cup coconut milk or milk of choice
6 tablespoons melted unsalted butter*
¼ cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon salt
¾ cup chopped nuts (optional, but I like adding chopped pecans)
1/2 cup fresh blueberries (optional)
*Feel free to use salted butter— just omit the 1 teaspoon of salt included in the recipe.
Preheat the oven to 350 F, and place a rack in the center of the oven. Prepare an 8×8 OR 9×13 baking dish by greasing the inside with softened butter or oil. (Either size works, I’ve made it in both!)
Combine the rolled oats, cinnamon, and baking powder in a large bowl.
Whisk together the following ingredients in a separate bowl: 2 eggs, coconut milk, melted butter, brown sugar, vanilla extract, and salt.
Pour the liquid ingredients over the oats and mix well.
If using nuts and fresh blueberries, stir them in now.
Pour the Bonne Maman INTENSE Blueberry Fruit spread on top, and fold to streak throughout the casserole.
Spread the casserole in an even layer in the greased baking dish. Bake at 350 F until the aroma of warm berries and oats fills your kitchen, and the edges look dry and are starting to brown, about 35 minutes.
Remove from the oven and serve.
Serving suggestion: For those who want even more fruit, you can serve with more Intense Blueberry Fruit Spread. For those who like a creamier oatmeal, you can serve in a bowl with a little milk or cream on top.
