Baked Blueberry Oatmeal

Oatmeal is such a satisfying breakfast and I find myself eating it several times a week. Whether it's Overnight oats, stove top oats, or baked oatmeal, it's all good to me. This is a big difference from someone who grew up thinking oatmeal tasted like cardboard. My how times have changed.
I have seen this recipe for baked oatmeal all over the blog world and knew I needed to give it a try. I wanted to keep it simple, yet sweet and flavorful. The combination of the sweet warm blueberries and the coconut made me feel like I was eating a dessert. I simply cannot get enough of this heart-healthy, fiber-rich breakfast. 
This dish makes several servings, perfect to reheat and have for breakfast throughout the week. How is that for a quick and healthy breakfast option?!
