Who says you can’t have pie for breakfast? These blueberry pie oatmeal bowls are a delicious AND nutritious way to start your mornings. They’re packed with fiber, whole-grains, antioxidants, and even a bit of protein!
These oatmeal bowls comes together in just 20 minutes. They’re such a fun way to switch up your breakfast game! You can use the creamy oatmeal as a base for any topping, but I love this simple blueberry compote on top. It’s a perfect way to use up those old blueberries in the back of your fridge.
They truly taste like a deconstructed blueberry pie, but without all of the excess sugar.
I’ve been craving more hearty breakfasts with the colder weather, and oatmeal bowls always hit the spot. They also hold me over for hours, which is perfect for when I have a busy morning in the kitchen.
How to make a simple blueberry compote
For the blueberry topping, you’ll need blueberries, lemon juice, maple syrup, and chia seeds. You cook the blueberries in a small pan with the rest of the ingredients, and let it simmer until you’re left with a thick, blueberry jam.
Chia seeds are highly nutritious, and provide omega-3 fats and a little protein to your meals. They’re an easy nutrition boost to add to your smoothies or oatmeal, and play a vital role in thickening up the compote for these blueberry pie oatmeal bowls.
Other ways to enjoy your blueberry compote
If you wanted to double or even triple the recipe to the blueberry jam, here are some other ways you can enjoy it:
- serve it over toasted bread with a little butter
- use is as a jelly for a classic PB&J sandwich
- mix it into your plain yogurt for a little bit of sweetness
- eat it over vanilla ice cream!
Whether you have a little extra time in the morning, or are just looking for new breakfast ideas, you’re going to love this simple recipe!

Aww thank you! 🙂

So good! Made it exactly as the recipe stated and it was delicious. The blueberry jam/compote is especially tasty. I’ve never thought of adding lemon when I previously made something like this. I’m definitely making this again. This is such a good recipe!
Thank you, Manpreet! So glad you enjoyed it.
Just made this, but used fresh cranberries and lime juice (leftover from the holidays). Really great idea adding yogurt for creaminess and protein. I used nonfat Greek yogurt. If you prefer sweeter oatmeal but want to use Greek yogurt, you might want to add some sweetener of choice. Great recipe, and bonus that it looks pretty. Thanks!
Appreciate the review, Natalie! I definitely agree about the sweetness, and even left a note about it on the recipe card since everyone has different preferences 🙂
So delicious! I never thought to add yogurt to my oats while cooking before. I also topped with sliced almonds.
Sounds delicious- I love the addition of almonds for a crunch!
