Blueberry Chocolate Chip Baked Oatmeal

A few years ago, I worked at a bakery that made blueberry chocolate chip cookie bars. Everyone always thought it was a weird combo until they tried them — and then they were hooked. They were one of the most popular items on the menu even.

While the cookie bars themselves were great, the combination of the blueberry and chocolate is never far from my mind, which is where this recipe came from. It’s got the same vibe, only a little healthier, with oats, and flax, and nuts — it makes a perfect breakfast. I like to top mine with vanilla yogurt, but you could add a little milk or eat as is. Either way, it kind of tastes like dessert.

I like a combination of rolled oats with steel cut, as it gives it a heartier texture, but this recipe will work fine if you just use regular old rolled oats. Just don’t use instant, as they will likely end up mushy.
