air fryer camping blueberry baked oatmeal

One of the best parts of camping in our camper van is starting my day with a wonderful hot breakfast, like an air fryer camping Blueberry Baked Oatmeal. It’s an easy bake that the whole family will love.

It’s great to make on a busy morning for a day full of adventures. It even is great the next day, if there is any leftover. It’s definitely one of our favorite breakfasts.

I don’t have an oven in my camper van, so I either use my air fryer or my Omnia Stovetop Oven.


Baking without a traditional oven

The thing about a small space like a camper van is that there really is no room for an oven, and I like to bake.

When we lived in our 40′ Foretravel Motorhome, I had an oven and all the room I could ask for. But not when we downsized to a camper van.

I had to be more creative about having the ability to bake in such a small space as a van.

The way to do that is to use an air fryer, and I have been amazed at how much I can do with an air fryer.  I also learned all about the Omnia Stovetop Oven.

Between these two appliances, I was able to make anything that I could make in a traditional oven.

Blueberry Oatmeal Bake

A blueberry oatmeal bake is a delicious and nutritious breakfast or brunch dish that combines the flavors of blueberries and oats.  

It’s always nice to have a nice hot breakfast on a beautiful cool morning in Autumn around a toasty campfire.

This is a recipe that I have been making for our camping trips for many years.

Of course, this can be made with any type of fresh fruit or frozen.

The ease of an Air Fryer

My air fryer goes with me camping every time.  It’s like having a full-sized oven right on the counter that can be stowed when you’re not using it.

This batter can be placed into small ramekins or just line the air fryer with parchment paper.

The recipe is the same for whatever way you bake it.



We like to make a full pan full of this hearty breakfast because we know we’re going to eat it all.


The convenience of the Omnia Stovetop Oven

This is an appliance that I found a few years back.  It kind of looks like a bundt pan but bakes up a store right on the stove or over an open flame.

The batter can be just put into the silicone insert of the Omnia, or you can line the metal insert with parchment paper.

For me, the best part is the crispy edges that happen in the Omnia.  Paul and I actually have to fight over them.

Breakfast or Dessert

This is a very versatile item.  It can be enjoyed with a hot cup of coffee or tea.  You can also make it for dessert after a hearty campfire meal.

One of Paul’s favorite things is to top it with some nice cold vanilla ice cream to make it more of a dessert.



Whenever you want to have a hot breakfast, and you have had enough of the same old bacon and eggs, this is a great alternative.

It’s a very versatile recipe, easy to put together, and even easier to bake.  

This comes out great and is really a party or family pleaser. Whether you have electric hookups for your air fryer or just want to make it out on the campfire in the Omnia Oven.



Nibbler Tip:  Always make sure that you are checking the batter while baking to make sure it is not burning.  The Omnia usually bakes at a consistent 350°, and you can set the air fryer at 350°.
