Baked Apple Blueberry Oatmeal
 
A delightful change from plain oatmeal. This dish is quite sweet; if you don't like sweet oatmeal, you can easily half the sweetener.

Ingredients
  • 2 cups non-dairy milk
  • 2 cups applesauce
  • your choice of sweetener -
    1/4 cup honey
    OR 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
    OR 1/2 cup raw sugar
    OR 1/2 cup chopped dates (see note)
    OR if you'd like to reduce the sweetener, replace some of it with chopped apples
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon melted coconut oil
  • 2 cups regular rolled oats
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries
Instructions
  1. Stir together all ingredients, except blueberries and oats in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Add oats and lightly mix. Do not over mix. Mixture will be soupy.
  3. Gently stir in blueberries.
  4. Pour into an oiled 2-quart baking dish.
  5. Bake uncovered at 375°F for 45 minutes or until lightly browned.
Notes
1. If using dates, they should be chopped small so their sweetness is distributed throughout the dish.

2. While the oil is optional, it does add a bit of a buttery flavor to the dish. However, it also adds calories and can be left out without negatively affecting the final product.


Make Ahead Tip:

This dish can be baked the evening before and kept in the refrigerator until the next morning when ready to reheat.


Variation:

Stir 1/2 cup chopped nuts in with the oats.

    This is truly delicious! We were fortunate to have the opportunity to eat what you see in the picture, and it was the best oatmeal We’ve ever eaten! This will become a regular on our menu.

    Quick oats will work in this recipe, but the end result will be a lot mushier. If you don’t mind your oats a bit mushy, then that should be fine. But if not, you may want to wait until you have some regular oats.
