Blueberry & Pomegranate Baked Oatmeal

Here at house Macheesmo we eat oatmeal almost every single weekday morning for breakfast. It’s a healthy and easy way to start the day, but I have to admit that I get a bit bored with the standard. Also, our 1-year old little girl won’t eat the stuff.

So, I’ve been working on some alternative to get her to try it. She’s a fruit fanatic and, I think, would eat exclusively blueberries if we let her. So I figured I would try to jam as much fruit as possible into a delicious baked oatmeal and see how it goes.

The good news: The baked oatmeal is seriously delicious. It’s just sweet enough and I love the little pops of flavor and texture from the blueberries and pomegranate seeds.

The bad news: Darby still didn’t eat it. She’s determined to be a picky eater despite all her Dad’s efforts.

Pomegranate Baked Oatmeal

This is a really easy oatmeal dish to toss together. You can make it the night before and then just bake it in the morning OR completely bake it and then just reheat in the microwave for super fast breakfasts.

It starts with a little brown sugar, eggs, milk, and spices.

A good start.

Then add in some rolled oats. I’m normally a steel cut oatmeal fan, but rolled oats works best for this version.

Oatmeal stuff!

Then there’s fruit! Pomegranates are beautiful right now and add perfect little pops of texture and flavor to the oatmeal. You can seed them yourself or buy already seeded ones.

TIP: Break apart the pomegranate in a little bowl of water to prevent red splatter all over your kitchen.

Love the color.

Mix in the fruit with the oatmeal and drizzle some melted butter over the whole situation.

A little butter.

Ready to bake!

Bake this beauty for about 40 minutes at 350 degrees F. It’s done when the oatmeal is just set in the center.

I like to serve this with some Greek yogurt but you could also spoon it into a bowl and add a little milk to it.

This pomegranate baked oatmeal got three YES votes here at house Macheesmo and one NO vote, but let’s not base our recipe decisions on the finicky natures of one year olds right, team?

  1. This was delicious– I mixed it together last night & baked this morning, and it’s a new favorite. Funny enough, my 4 year old son refused to try it but my 1 year old was obsessed. Kids are crazy!!

  2. Has good flavor but came out a bit too gummy for my liking. The only change I did was substitute the milk for 1 cup almond, 1/2 regular. Perhaps too much liquid all together? I did not let it sit overnight, though.
