This hazelnut and blueberry baked oatmeal is warm, comforting and so flavorful! And a fun twist of flavors too!

I fell in love with a flavor combo.

It’s true. Roast-toasted hazelnuts and dried blueberries and cardamom in oatmeal with a touch of honey… oh my word.

Hazelnut and Blueberry Baked Oatmeal

I’m a huge fan of baked oatmeal. And in my opinion it’s 800 times easier than the stove-top or microwave method.  You don’t have to babysit it, stirring it, making sure there’s not an oatmeal boil-over, which always seems to happen by the way.

Okay so have you heard of dried blueberries or am I the last one to hear about these gems? Are we calling them blasins now… I mean, these are things I need to know. Anywho a few weeks ago I was at Costco and there they were! I’m like… oh heck YES these are going in some granola, some cookies and oatmeal YAYAH! Then we checked out with the most hodgepodge cart Gatorade, dried blueberries… a winter coat for me. I’m so not ashamed.

Remember how yesterday I roast-toasted hazelnuts right? Well in the midst of roasting I spotted those dried blueberries errr-ah blasins and the thought just clicked and baked oatmeal was on.

ingredients

As you can see it’s pretty simple ingredients. Old fashioned oats (not quick cooking), hazelnuts, dried blueberries, whole milk, brown sugar, buttah, my favorite spice ever… cardamom, nutmeg, a little salt and a final drizzle of honey seals the deal in the end.

Next, chop up a mess of hazelnuts. This is about a half cup.. give or take.

finely chop

Thenchop half of them into smaller pieces (about a third of a cup) and kept some larger pieces for sprinkling on the oatmeal afterwards. I’m always thinking ahead.
