Recipe: Apple & Blueberry Baked Porridge

Apple & Blueberry Baked Oatmeal Recipe

I absolutely love autumn. The misty days, beautiful scented candles and cuddling up under the blanket with the fire on, all make the frosty weather worthwhile. It’s also a time where people (myself definitely included) tend to indulge in hot chocolates, festive treats and alcohol.

I’ve decided to do a November detox. Not to lose weight, but to feel happier and healthier in myself. So November is no alcohol and an attempt at some healthy eating. Obviously the occasional treat will still be allowed, and enjoyed, life is short!


What I’m learning is that comfort food can still be good for you. Stews, casseroles and home-made curries will all be delicious, warming comfort food throughout the colder months and are still packed full of vegetables but breakfast is where I struggle.

I’m just not that in to breakfast. Throughout summer a yogurt will suffice, but now it’s colder something warm, and more filling is required so it’s usually overnight oats with honey and perhaps some fruit during the week, but how do I make weekend breakfasts more exciting, without going straight for the bacon sarnies?

Apple & Blueberry Baked Porridge

Baked porridge. Yes I know it’s very similar to overnight oats, but it does make for a lovely warming Sunday breakfast. Packed full of fruit, nuts and spices but with a crunchy sugar top this is ideal with a pot of tea, and a good book, and feels slightly more special than normal porridge. Using spices such as nutmeg and cinnamon will fill your house with lovely festive aromas, and really start getting you in the mood for the holiday season. 

Serves 2-3

Ingredients
75g oats
350ml milk
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
