Baked Steel Cut Oats with Apples, Blueberries, and Walnuts

Ever since I discovered how to make steel-cut oats in the oven, I've making them for breakfast once a week, usually on Sunday morning. I use whatever fruit and nuts I happen to be in the mood for and when I saw the handful of fresh blueberries left in the fridge, I knew they'd be perfect in baked steel cut oats. The juicy blueberries pop when you bite into them, and are a great contrast to tart, slightly crunchy apples and nutty oats. I tossed some toasted walnuts on top for some richness and crunch, drizzling homemade blueberry syrup over top just to gild the lily a bit more and creating the perfect lazy weekend breakfast with a maple latte and the paper.
