Healthy Baked Oatmeal

Protein-Packed Blueberry Banana Almond Oats — No Dairy or Gluten!

I know what you're thinking. You could easily make a bowl of oats in the microwave or with boiling water, but there's something special and amazing about baking your oats in the oven — you've got to try this recipe to fully understand the depth of flavour and texture.

Sweetened only with banana, applesauce, and blueberries, this gluten-free breakfast follows the perfect formula for weight loss. At 350 calories, it offers almost 16 grams of protein and 9.3 grams of hunger-satiating fibre. Each serving tastes perfectly sweet, even though your bowl only has 14.2 grams of sugar per serving.

The juicy blueberries complement the soft and creamy oatmeal and the crunchy almonds, and it's such an amazing flavour combination! This is a delicious make-ahead breakfast you can serve or bring to a brunch, or bake it on Sunday to have a healthy breakfast for the week.
