We start with frozen blueberries. As you know, blueberries are a “super food”. Not just good for you but taste delicious. There are many ways to use frozen blueberries and Blueberry Baked Oatmeal is just one of them.

Syrups and Other Toppings

For a delicious and healthy brunch, top blueberry baked oatmeal with yoghurt, Waitrose No. 1 maple syrup and some coconut.

If you have leftover pulp from making Blueberry Syrup, skip making the compote and just reheat your pulp with a few more frozen berries and a splash of water to thin the syrup.

In a hurry? Forgot the compote and just throw some frozen blueberries in the pan, cover with the oat batter and bake.

Also, remember to try our Baked Oatmeal Cups or our Cinnamon Roll Baked Oats which are perfect for breakfast on the go.SaveSaveSaveSave
