Yup you read it right – up at 5am on a Sunday so why not bake and create?! My breakfast go to is a yogurt bowl which I like to layer with some sort of oatmeal muffin or breakfast bar. I was able to use up some brown bananas (which I have on purpose every week lol!) and created this blueberry oatmeal bake!
Trader Joe’s Old Fashioned Oats are a staple in my pantry (which are gluten free too) along with blueberries were my go to but feel free to swap any fruit you like. Walnuts I always have on hand but any nut will do or keep them out if allergies. For a little protein boost I added in Collagen powder from Vital Farms.
Super universal where you can swap ingredients to your taste. Yes! I added in chocolate chips too – totally optional but highly recommended! I was able to get 12 bars so I froze half for my breakfast next week.
