Lemon Blueberry Baked Oatmeal

Delicious baked oatmeal laced with lemon and beautiful blueberries. It is soft, flavorful and the leftovers reheat amazingly well!

     This baked oatmeal is so fresh and delicious! It is sweetened with honey that mixes so wonderfully with lemon juice and blueberries. It is a perfect spring breakfast. You'll find it is good enough for guests or perfect to make on the weekend for easy heat and eat breakfasts throughout the week.


      Baked oatmeal is one of our ultimate favorite breakfasts. It is so quick to put together and the flavor options are endless.

       Once I found a base recipe I loved, I couldn't stop playing with flavor variations. It's been a while since I shared a new version with you, so I thought it was time for a new one.

      MiMi actually suggested doing a lemon, honey and blueberry oatmeal version some time back.  So when I got a pint of blueberries from our CSA, it seemed high tome to finally do it.

     Of course lemon and honey are such a perfect pairing.  Lemon and berries are another natural match.

     So it makes perfect sense that this combination was good. Even after all of the baked oatmeal recipes I've tried, I think this is a new favorite!

    Don't tell the recipe for brownie baked oatmeal though. I don't want that one to get jealous!


Why baked oatmeal is so great


It's a one bowl recipe that mixes together in almost no time at all. You can have it in the oven in just a few minutes with very little effort.

This particular recipe makes a nice light and fluffy oatmeal.  It is not dense or stodgy.

Baked oatmeal is great served warm or at room temperature. I even enjoy it cold in a pinch.

The leftovers keep well. It will easily last a week in the refrigerator or 3 months in the freezer. Just quickly warm it up in the microwave and you are good to go.

Topping ideas


This baked oatmeal is wonderful on its own, in fact that is how I enjoyed it.  However there are a lot of fun ways to dress it up.


  • Drizzle of honey
  • Dollop of yogurt
  • Dollop of whipped cream
  • Additional fresh berries
  • Pour over some milk
  • Toasted nuts
