This is the version we generally make.)
Recipe Notes

I wish the baked blueberry oatmeal took a better picture! It just comes out so ‘blue’ from the blueberries popping when baked. Take my word for it that it tastes a heck of a lot better than it looks. We’ve actually started serving it in ramekins as it looks a lot better that way.
