Like I’ve shared before, I love making breakfast the night before, so that all that needs to be done the next morning, is to pop it in the oven! This has been a lifesaver during this postpartum season. It has afforded me long slow mornings in bed nursing my newborn, while the older children slowly trickle in after eating some breakfast that was all ready for them when they awoke.

This blueberry almond oatmeal bake is something we make 1-2 times per week because it’s so easy to throw together, has a good amount of protein, and the kids love it. We’ve also swapped out the frozen blueberries for frozen cherries, which is delicious as well! Whatever frozen or fresh fruit you have on hand should work!
