This Blueberry Lemon Baked Oatmeal is a great option for breakfast!
If you’re tired of eggs, this is a great option for you. Plus it saves well so you can enjoy it for a few days in a row.
It’s also pretty low in points. If you are following myWW purple it is 0 points per serving! For blue it is 3 points per serving and green is 4 points per serving.
This baked oatmeal has blueberries and lemon in it. If you don’t like lemon, you can leave it out.
Personally, I love the smell of a fresh lemon! When I started to zest the lemon for this recipe I was in heaven.
There are a few things I did to lighten up this recipe. One is I left out the butter, and used unsweetened applesauce instead.
I also chose to use almond milk instead of regular milk. One cup of almond milk is only 1 point!
I also used granulated Splenda for the sweetener. I know not everyone likes using artificial sweetener, so you could always replace it with real sugar. Just make sure you adjust the points!
You use equal parts sugar to granulated Splenda so it’s easy to convert the recipe.
I store this baked oatmeal in the fridge if I have leftovers. The next time I eat it I pop it in the microwave at 50% power for 30 seconds. It tastes like it just came out of the oven!
I may have added fat-free Reddi Whip to my baked oatmeal, but that’s our little secret!
