I find meal prep to be the easiest way to navigate being a busy, working mom of two littles less than two years apart. So Baked Oatmeal comes in handy for those busy days, like this Sweet Blueberry Oatmeal Bake.

My toddler eats everything and anything, we top our Oatmeal Bake with some plain Greek yogurt for added protein and a dash of cinnamon for good measure and devour it! Also, this recipe is freezer-friendly.

HOW TO SERVE BLUEBERRY OATMEAL BAKE

We like to serve our Oatmeal Bake with plain Greek yogurt and a little garnish of cinnamon to bring out a more rich flavour. I love the combination of the tartness of the yogurt and the sweetness of the blueberries.
