Blueberry Lavender Vanilla Honey Baked Oatmeal

gluten free Blueberry Lavender Vanilla Honey Baked Oatmeal | almost getting it together

I have had a jar of dried lavender in my spice cabinet for approximately a year and have used it twice, the second being for this recipe (and the first for these meatballs). I think I bought it to make vanilla lavender hot chocolate or something and never got around to it or stopped eating sugar or something dumb.
If there is anything lavender on the menu, I have to buy it (i.e. lavender iced chai from Allegheny Coffee Company). Lavender is also my favorite scent and hell hath no fury than me when L’Occitane is out of lavender shower gel. I think lavender appeals to my love of all things French and France and that forgotten minor in college. (My favorite live flowers are tulips, in case anyone is wondering.)

I can’t think of anything that goes better with lavender than honey. When I was trying to decide what to make with lavender, suddenly I thought – blueberry lavender something. Then I thought “add honey”. When I was mixing this up I realized it could probably use some vanilla, too. Hence, Blueberry Lavender Vanilla Honey Baked Oatmeal was born.

This is gluten-free, full of protein and fiber and really makes your house smell good while it’s baking, too.

Mmm, boy do I love oatmeal and this one sounds delicious! Smart idea using dried lavender, because I went on a two day search for fresh edible flowers!

I almost thought about making lavender granola! OF COURSE. I don’t know if you knew I minored in French… because I’m a few credits short of the actual minor. Whoops.
