A Healthy Start to your Day: Baked Blueberry Oatmeal

Before we closed down shop in the kitchen for a couple of weeks, I snuck in to make the BF’s favorite breakfast this past Sunday: Blueberry Baked Oatmeal. Of all the breakfasts I’ve cooked, this one is by far his favorite. It’s the one he proudly talks about to his friends at parties as he boasts of my skills as a breakfast chef.

The best part is that it’s 100% healthy and extremely easy to throw together. When I have friends over for brunch, I’m always tempted to throw together an elaborate, decadent and unique dish, like Fruity Pebble Pancakes (I said elaborate…not elegant). Sometimes, however, it’s nice to cook up a warm, comforting and healthy dish for my guests. Enter Blueberry Baked Oatmeal.

Packed with fiber, this healthy comfort food breakfast draws upon the flavors of maple syrup, honey and blueberries to achieve the perfect of level of sweetness. Cook it for a group of people or simply to impress your significant other (leftovers can be reheated in a pinch!)

Doesn’t it look positively scrumptious? I also like to test other fruity combos, such as apples and raisins, strawberries and bananas and even peaches! If you want to get a little Sometimes Healthy, you can go ahead and throw some chocolate chips into the mix…but I would NEVER do that.

I have been working on a fun workout to share with all of you, but it’s not ready yet. So, this week you’ll just be getting a recipe from me. Feel free to checkout some of my printable workouts on the blog. By far, my “Create Your Own Bootcamp” Workouts and kickboxing workouts are the most popular on Pinterest, so maybe you should give one of them a try on this dreary Friday?

Before signing off, I wanted to share a picture that my best friend, Becca, texted me last night. She thought I might get a kick out of what her son, Brody, was having for dessert.

Ice cream topped with Goldfish and sprinkles. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: this boy is a culinary genius.

I am also very proud of the fact that my dessert choices mirror those of a 4-year-old.

On that sweet note, I’m off!

YOUR TURN:

Favorite healthy breakfast?

Favorite kiddie foods that you eat? (Mine is obviously Goldfish!)

Favorite workouts that I’ve posted?
