A healthy baked oatmeal loaded with blueberries, flaxseed, almonds and drizzled with a Maple Cinnamon Yogurt Cream! A super easy recipe to add to your weekly rotation.
This recipe is from a brunch from this summer.
I love breakfast! It’s always been my favorite meal of the day and I eat the same thing every morning, yes, I am that person! I panfry 1 egg with 1/2 cup of egg whites, a piece of whole grain toast with ghee, some fruit, a cup of tea, a big glass of water and I’m ready for the day.
I am also that person that if I’m going somewhere and it’s a special occasion, in this case, my father in law’s birthay, I like to take over breakfast and make brunch to make their day extra special. For his birthday brunch, I made this Baked Blueberry Oatmeal, with Wild Newfoundland Blueberries, but instead of plain maple syrup I made a Maple Cinnamon Yogurt Sauce that took this dish from good to WOW! So much flavor from the cinnamon and maple and the greek yogurt added some protein to up the nutritional value.
The oatmeal was just as good or better reheated the next day so make a big batch on the weekend and you have a quick, healthy and yummy breakfast for the week. I served the oatmeal with a frittata, some bacon (because what’s a brunch without bacon) and some fresh raspberries.
This recipe is super healthy with rolled oats (gluten free, protein, fiber, vitamins) , flaxseed meal (omega 3), roasted almonds (protein) , fresh blueberries (a superfood, antioxidant), almond milk (dairy free) , maple syrup instead of refined sugar, and greek yogurt (protein). A healthy breakfast to serve your family any day of the week!
