Cinnamony Baked Oatmeal Bars with Blueberries

By Krimkus

Baked Oatmeal and Blueberries-3-compressedI’m a collector of baked oatmeal recipes of all kinds, and completely fun plates.

As a child, my mom would serve bowls of oatmeal with brown sugar and milk, or cream of wheat topped with real butter, sugar and cinnamon.

I loved the oatmeal, and can still picture Mom stirring oats at the stove.

But these days, I opt for baked oatmeal for a variety of reasons.

I’m a fan of adding as much nutrition as I can to my breakfasts, and baked oatmeal bars are the perfect vehicle for a protein packed, healthy fat, antioxidant rich start to my day.

And they’re completely portable!

I add egg whites for a low fat protein, a touch of coconut oil as a healthy fat, and blueberries for a punch of antioxidants.

And the beauty of baked oatmeal bars is that you can add all kinds of healthy ingredients. Imagine these bars with strawberries, raspberries, chopped apples, dried apricots, or chopped walnuts.

Sounds great right?

But don’t forget to make a creamy pot of oatmeal on the stove every once in awhile. I love that warm and fuzzy feeling of happy memories.

Thanks Mom!
