When it’s cold outside, a bowl of something warm in your stomach is the best way to instantly warm up. It’s not only the best way to shake off the chill later in the day, but it’s also a great way to get you started in the morning before stepping into the frigidness of winter.
Quaker® Oats knows the importance of waking up with your best bowl, and want to hear your idea of the best bowl of oatmeal in less than 5 ingredients. This national “Bring Your Best Bowl” promotion is called out on select Quaker® Oats products, and easily found with mix-in ideas on an endcap at Target.
Our best bowl? A bowl of Blueberry Cinnamon Roll Baked Oatmeal. It’s like everything good about a cinnamon roll in a hot bowl of baked oatmeal.
Now, I have to say that this recipe for Blueberry Cinnamon Roll Baked Oatmeal has more than 5 ingredients. If you had the cream cheese icing and the cinnamon topping, then quite a bit more. So I won’t be winning any contests. Except the contest of love, because your family will love you for this one.
Mix your Quaker® Old-Fashioned Oats together with cinnamon, brown sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add that to an egg, melted butter, milk, and vanilla. Toss in some blueberries and raisins. All of these ingredients are so easy to find at Target, by the way. After you pick up about 50 items you didn’t know you needed, but Target is just that good of a store.
Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes or until the top is browned.
While that’s baking in a warm cinnamon infused Blueberry Cinnamon Roll Baked Oatmeal bowl of goodness, mix together your cinnamon topping and cream cheese icing. Then drizzle and eat. You can even drizzle some more if you want. Because we’re all about the love here. Now that is a great bowl!
