Rhubarb Blueberry Baked Oatmeal #SundaySupper

Blueberry Rhubarb Baked Oatmeal

Breakfast is an ever evolving meal in my house. When I was little, I ate cereal, Toaster Strudels, and Eggo waffles like all little kids.  Then by the time I reached middle school, I was super nervous before school, it was too early to think about eating a large meal, and we were in way too much of a hurry, so Mom let me eat a couple of cookies, figuring at least it was something in my stomach for the day ahead.  I rotated between Lorna Doones, Archway Oatmeal Raisin, Chessmen, and a few others.  Once I started homeschooling, I went through a strange Pretzel Goldfish and fruity yogurt phase.  Don’t ask.  I have no explanation.  This was followed by a serious Pop Tart phase.  Not much explanation for that one either.

Then I wanted something healthier and less processed, so I started making muffins.  All different kinds, I never ate the same one two days in a row.  I still love muffins and don’t think I’ll ever get tired of them, but sometimes I want something different.  I’ve already admitted this something different is often pie or cake, clearly the breakfast of champions.

But what about something lighter and healthier?  I made granola, which I can’t wait to make again, and smoothies are a new morning staple along with oatmeal.  Not the Quaker instant packs of my youth, but old fashioned rolled oats.  I load my bowl with dried figs, fresh blueberries and bananas, and tons of cinnamon.  The other day Mom asked if I wanted some oatmeal with my cinnamon.  What can I say?  I love cinnamon.  And okay, sometimes I add marshmallows.  The healthy meal, full of iron, protein, and fiber fills me up and gives me energy for the day without weighing me down.  Plus, I find it to be very comforting.

However, I wanted to mix it up.  When I saw this Blueberry Rhubarb Baked Oatmeal, I instantly knew I needed to make it.  It’s such a creative and delicious spin on traditional oatmeal.  Plus, it’s pretty easy to put together.  Mom was a rock star and made it last weekend so we could eat it for breakfast hot out of the oven.  The blueberries really take over the rhubarb, but I didn’t mind, as I love blueberries, plus this Sunday Supper is all about berries.  Many burst and bubbled up on the sides, making the dish as pretty as it is tasty.  Vanilla and cinnamon shine through the perfectly cooked and creamy oatmeal.  Walnuts add a welcome crunch and I loved the banana flavor.  I bet you could add extra banana to intensify that flavor.  Plus leftovers are just as good whether cold from the refrigerator or warmed in the microwave.  Oh, and did I mention it’s also vegan and gluten free as long as you use gluten free oats?  I can’t wait to make this again and see where else my breakfast adventure leads.

Blueberry Rhubarb Baked Oatmeal

Rhubarb Blueberry Baked Oatmeal #SundaySupper

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 45 minutes

Yield: 6 servings


1 ¾ cups rolled oats (I used Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free)

½ cup walnuts

¼ cup + 2 tablespoons oat flour, divided (I used Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free)

¼ cup packed light brown sugar

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon baking powder

½ teaspoon kosher salt

2 cups almond milk

1 ½ cups rhubarb, thinly sliced, about ¼ inch thick

1 2/3 cups blueberries

1 large banana, mashed

2 tablespoons pure maple syrup

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly oil and 8 or 9 inch square baking pan.

In a large bowl, stir together oats, walnuts, ¼ cup oat flour, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt.

In the baking dish stir together the rhubarb, 1 1/3 cups of the blueberries, 2 tablespoons of the oat flour, and the brown sugar. Spread into an even layer. Top with the dry ingredients.

In a medium bowl, whisk together milk, banana, maple syrup, oil, and vanilla. Pour the wet ingredients over the oat mixture in the baking dish. Carefully bang the pan on the counter a couple of times before poking the oatmeal with a fork, making sure to get all the way to the bottom. You want the wet ingredients to soak into the oatmeal, but do not stir the mixture. Top with reserved 1/3 cup blueberries.

Bake for 35-45 minutes, until lightly browned, bubbling, and the top is set. It should still be gooey and moist underneath. Serve hot from the oven. May be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Leftovers can be eaten cold or reheated in the microwave in 30 second increments until warmed through.
