These freezer friendly Blueberry Steel Cut Oatmeal Pucks are the easiest breakfast to make and one of my toddler’s favorite meals! Make a huge batch and freeze into single serving “pucks”.
My toddler wakes up and wants food before I’ve poured my first cup of coffee, so having these on hand is a lifesaver! It’s quicker than cooking them on the stove that morning and I can reheat them to the perfect temperature for her.
The best part is, I control the amount of added sugar in this recipe! My daughter enjoys it without any added sweetner, so I usually skip this step. I recommend making them unsweetened and then they can be sweetened individually after being reheated.
I grab a large 112 ounce bag of the Bob’s Red Mill Organic Quick Cooking Steel Cut Oats and it lasts us for awhile.
Blueberry is our favorite flavor, but you could experiment with other fruits and flavor combinations! Apple cinnamon, strawberry, or maple and brown sugar would all be delicious. You could even make a batch with no fruit at all and simply add in frozen or fresh fruit once reheated!

These fully customizable blueberry steel cut oatmeal pucks will make your morning a breeze and make sure your family is starting the day with full bellies.
I highly recommend using silicone muffin liners to freeze the oatmeal pucks. Once frozen, the pucks easily pop out of the liners and make for easy cleanup.
For storage: I store the frozen pucks in my glass Pyrex Snapware containers. I am OBSESSED with them containers for meal prep. Since they are glass they hold up well in the dishwasher, freezer, and can even be baked in. They help me cut back on extra dishes during the week due to them being multipurpose! I purchased two sets from Costco a few years ago and already want to invest in another set.
