Blueberry Baked Oatmeal Cups – when you need a healthy and easy breakfast, these blueberry baked oatmeal cups are the perfect way to start your day. They’re perfect for making ahead and enjoying on busy mornings!
When my husband and I first started dating, I learned quickly how important breakfast was to him. One of our first dates was to Waffle House where he polished off the All Star Breakfast platter, and that was just the first of many more visits to the Wa-Ho together over the years!
Back then, though, breakfast wasn’t even really a meal for me. I’d maybe grab a granola bar as I ran out the door to class or work, or possibly eat half of a pop tart while taking notes in class.
I had never been much of a breakfast person until I met my husband, but just like he has in so many other ways, he helped me to see the light! Ha! And now, just like him and our three kiddos, I’m a breakfast lover!
But even so, that doesn’t mean that I get to enjoy breakfast the way I’d really like to everyday. A lot of times now it’s a hardboiled egg or a banana as I shuffle kids to school, but after learning the beauty of make-ahead breakfasts like these Blueberry Baked Oatmeal Cups, I’ve got lots more options and so do you!
These Blueberry Baked Oatmeal Cups are actually a pre-portioned, make ahead version of this recipe from way back in the early days of my blog! Please ignore the bad pictures, but the recipe itself is a good one!
I usually make these on Sunday, then pop them in the refrigerator once they’re cool. To warm them up, just pop microwave on high for about 1 minute.
If you’re enjoying them at home, they taste great with a little bit of vanilla Greek yogurt over the top. Otherwise, they’re delicious on their own if you need to run out the door!
