Baked Blueberry Oatmeal Recipe

I don’t know very many people who are absolutely crazy about microwaveable, prepackaged oatmeal. And yet, it continues to be a go-to breakfast choice in our house. Mostly for the fact that it’s filling, quick to make, and cheap to buy.

When I stumbled upon someone talking about just how easy it is to make your own yummy oatmeal that’s actually baked, and without all the yucky preservatives, I was definitely interested. And what better time to experiment when I had an entire carton of yummy blueberries on hand!

Craig and I definitely considered this simple recipe a win! Not only was it incredibly easy to make and yummy to eat, but it also became breakfast for the entire week. Every morning, just spoon yourself some, nuke it in the microwave for 30 seconds, and you’re good to go!

  • It’s been a long week, but there’s nothing that a little coffee and relaxation can’t fix, right? ☕️❤️

Happy weekend, friends! ✨
  • There’s just something about this time of year.

The twinkle of the Christmas tree, flames from all of the delicious candles dancing around, a hardy homemade dinner baking in the oven — and the subtle sense that a new beginning is just around the corner.

Yes, this time of the year is my favorite. And I hope that I won’t take a single moment of it for granted 🎄
  • Sunday nights mean lighting a few candles, and curling up with a hot beverage, snuggled up next to my hubby. It really is the little things. ☕️🌿

  • THANKFUL.

Our life has been anything but conventional. Getting married at 19 and 20, multiple cross-country moves, embracing our little family of two knowing that we should be a family of three and chasing a toddler around right now.
✨
But as unpredictable as our journey’s been, I am so thankful for this man and the life we’re building together. Here’s to the lifetime of Thanksgivings we have ahead of us, handsome ❤️🦃
  • We had our first snow of the season, our Christmas tree is up, and I’ve switched to drinking hot coffee — ‘tis the season, y’all! ☕️❄️

This season I’m learning to come back to the basics and focus on my foundation. For me, this starts with gratitude.

When chaos inevitably breaks loose, taking a few moments to count my blessings has made all the difference.
