How are you guys doing today on this Monday morning? It’s been a while since I’ve shared a recipe but I’m excited about this one.

It uses my absolute favorite ingredient: sweet potatoes. They just seem to appear in like 75% of my recipes. I’m okay with it and I hope you are too.

My Australian sister came to visit this weekend. For new readers, I should clarify, she’s not really Australian but she’s living there for the year. In grad school. Just living the life as the little nomad she is. So, it was precious for her to finally meet her niece. Our weekend was actually rather low key, considering she had like 24 hours of travel to get here. And who knows how many time zones she crossed.

We went to a coffee shop, got some donuts, went to a brewery, and got some custard. And spent lots of time enjoying the back deck vibes and getting baby cuddles.

She agrees that you’ll like this recipe, though.

Okay, back to this Sweet Potato Blueberry Baked Oatmeal.


It’s Great for Cool Weather

I know in the summer time, hot oats can move to the wayside. I still love them, but others may resort to the cooler overnight oats, or baked oatmeal. Baked oatmeal is great any time of year because it’s easy. You make it once and then reap the benefits for days. You could make a few and have them last for a week. This is another one of the recipes I made “pre-Camryn” and froze. Sadly, I ate the last of it last week but already made some more this weekend.

I just think sweet potatoes and blueberries go together SO WELL. I don’t know what it is but they are made for each other. Almosssst as good as PB&J. Remember my blueberry sweet potato bread? This is a fun twist on that. Ultimately, both have the same purpose: to be slathered with peanut butter and devoured.

You agree?

We also have hints of cinnamon, butter and some maple syrup in here. So every bite is literally, the best thing ever. I say it’s great for breakfast, but to be honest, I like it for dessert too. So much natural sweetness from fruit and maple syrup. Top it with ice cream and you’ll impress anyone.
