Blueberry Almond Baked Oatmeal

This morning I decided to actually wake up a little on the early side and make the kids a special breakfast, Blueberry Almond Baked Oatmeal.  Thankfully they are all oatmeal fans, so it was a big hit!  We like to make baked oatmeal with all sorts of different add-ins, but this morning we happened to have just fresh blueberries to use.  🙂

I was also able to get a little jump start on back to school meal prep by making an extra batch and then storing it in my freezer instead of baking it.  Then, when I am ready to use it, I just pull it out of the freezer the night before and let it thaw in the refrigerator before baking it in the morning.  It works perfect and is a great treat on a chilly fall morning!
