So we’ve definitely made baked French toast oatmeal before, yeah? And it was super good, right? Well, let’s kick things up a notch. Let’s add more nutrition, more sweetness, and more FRUIT! Because that’s what we do. We fruit SO hard. 😉
So let’s make some baked blueberry French toast oatmeal!
It’s just as good as I hoped it’d be. If not better! Really, I love adding blueberries to lots of things, so I’m not surprised that this was a totally fantastic idea. I love it. Husband loves it. And I’m sure you’re gonna love it.

A perfectly sweet and spiced baked blueberry french toast oatmeal made with natural sweeteners and actual bread. Topped with walnuts, it's a nutrition bomb that tastes like it's bad for you!
- 1 ripe banana*
- 3 tbsp water/unsweetened plant milk
- 1 tbsp nut/seed butter (I used powdered PB)
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- (optional) 1/8 tsp turmeric
- 1 tbsp ground flax/chia (I use a combo of both)
- 1 slice of bread of choice** (cut into chunks)
- 1/4 cup oats
- 1/4 cup blueberries, divided (fresh or frozen)
- (optional) 1-2 tbsp crushed walnuts, divided
Preheat oven at 375 degrees F (190 C) and ready your ramekin (either with parchment paper or nonstick spray - I choose to bake this oatmeal without either).
In a medium bowl, mix mashed banana, water/milk, nut/seed butter, maple syrup, cinnamon, (optional) turmeric, and flax/chia well.
Add chunks of bread and mix them well so they soak the mixture up. Then add oats, blueberries (save some for topping), and walnuts (save some for topping) and stir to combine.
Pour mixture into your ramekin and place blueberries and crushed walnuts on top. Then bake for 18-22 minutes, let cool slightly, and enjoy.
*This recipe can be gluten-free if your bread is gluten-free.
**A thicker bread is preferred, but I've made it with the end piece of sandwich bread and it was still superb. I've even done it with a hamburger bun for a thicker bread.
