I am so excited to have partnered with SPLENDA® Stevia Sweetener to bring you this belly warming recipe.  

Easy Blueberry Baked Oatmeal

We know breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day. A meal that fills you up and gives you energy for the morning is the perfect start to any day! As much as we like oatmeal, we LOVE baked oatmeal and this recipe tops the list.

Making baked oatmeal is really easy, we just combine oats, eggs and almond milk (or traditional milk) with fresh fruit or berries.

With all of that goodness going into this baked oatmeal, I try not to load it up with added sugar so in this recipe I use SPLENDA® Stevia Sweetener. This no-calorie sweetener is a plant based sweetener, and gets it its sweetness from the stevia leaf. I love it because not only does it taste great, it contains no added flavors or colors, no preservatives, and only non-GMO ingredients and it has no bitter aftertaste.

A hint of cinnamon and a splash of almond extract really make this breakfast sing!

Once it’s all spread into the pan, I add some extra blueberries on top making sure every bite is bursting with flavor.

When I make desserts that contain fruit, I often top it with a delicious streusel topping.  A streusel topping is a sweet and buttery crumble sprinkled on top (almost like you would put on top of a  Berry Crisp) and baked until golden.

I love to add oats and nuts (or coconut) to my streusel topping for extra flavor and a little bit of crunch.

For breakfast, we serve this baked oatmeal with a splash of cream or milk and extra fresh blueberries.

Can you bake oatmeal?

Yes!! You can definitely bake oatmeal and if you’ve never tried baking it you’re in for a real treat.

Oats are such a great breakfast, they’re perfect served cold as Overnight Oats or boiled on the stove but best of all is baked oatmeal!

The texture is different than a regular oatmeal boiled in a pot as the oats hold their shape better.

Can you freeze baked oatmeal?

Baked Oatmeal can be prepared and frozen before baking.  To cook, remove from the freezer and defrost in the fridge overnight.  Bake as directed.

This blueberry baked oatmeal recipe makes 9 servings. It’s a great breakfast to make on a Sunday morning and enjoy throughout the week. It reheats perfectly in the microwave to enjoy for breakfasts all week long.

If you’d like to keep it longer, I would suggest cutting it into servings and placing each serving in a freezer bag.  In the morning just remove one serving and heat on 70% power until heated through.

What is the Difference Between Quick Oats and Old Fashioned Oats?

This recipe uses Old Fashioned Oats.  There is a difference between quick oats and old fashioned oats so you’ll want to make sure you’re using the right variety.

Whole oats are rolled flat to create Old Fashioned Oats where as Quick Oats are cut into smaller pieces so they cook faster.  The smaller pieces of the quick oats soak in more liquid and don’t hold their shape as well in this recipe.

Changing the oats will change both the cooking time and texture of this recipe.

  1. How would frozen blueberries hold up in this recipe? I was planning on thawing them and pat any juices off before using.

    • I think they’d work just fine, I wouldn’t even worry about defrosting them. You might like to toss them with a small spoonful of flour before adding. The color from frozen blueberries can sometimes run more but they would still be great!

  2. Any suggestions as a substitute for the eggs?

  3. Loved this recipe

  4. Can you please provide all the nutrition besides the calories please. Evie

  5. I noticed that the recipe does not say what size pan. I looks like and 8 X 8 from the pics. Could you please verify this.

  6. I was wondering if steel cut oats could be used instead of old fashioned oats? Thank you 

    • I’ve only made the recipe as written. Changing the oats will change both the cooking time and texture of this recipe. Let us know if you try it with steel cut oats Bonnie!

  9. How much sugar should I use if I don’t use Stevia?

  10. Hello….This recipe looks super as all of your do. As for the use of Splenda/Stevia do you have
    a bulk measurement ie; 1 Tablespoon etc vs ’12 packets’? Thanks and keep those fun and delicious
    recipes coming.

    • I’m not sure what the bulk measurement would be. According to my package, 1 packet of Splenda Stevia = 2 teaspoons of sugar. This means 12 packets = 1/2 cup regular sugar. Hopefully your bulk package has a conversion chart that you can use to replace 1/2 cup sugar.

  11. Hi Holly,
    Thanks for sharing, love your recipes. I have tried a few they always turn out great, and my family loves them too.

  12. *recipe*…not song!  ‍♀️

  13. This recipe just what I’ve need for my mornings before work!  I had gotten in the habit of fast food and am determined to eat at home!  I’ll be making this over the weekend and freezing portions!  I love your blog!!  ❤️

  14. Can I sub maple syrup or honey for stevia?

  15. The blueberry baked oatmeal looks delicious. Can I use regular sugar or brown sugar (or a mix of both) instead of Stevia? Equal measurements?

  16. I love baked oatmeal and it’s so much easier to me than standing around a pot of oatmeal…which I always forget about and then it boils over. lol
