I feel that oatmeal is a very personal thing. Everyone likes theirs prepared “just so”. For example, my dad’s oatmeal swims in evaporated milk, a ton of cinnamon, and some sugar. I like mine drier, with nuts, fruit, spices, and a [tiny] splash of almond milk. Sometimes I add applesauce into the mix, too. Oatmeal is a great breakfast but I found it difficult to meal prep with and/or eat on the go. Texture is paramount and neither the texture nor the temperature of overnight oats really jive with me so I gave up on making more than one bowl at a time until I was introduced to the idea of baked oatmeal. This is a GENIUS way to make oatmeal because it’s portable, can be eaten hot or cold, and you can add whatever you want to meet your desired texture, taste, etc. I have made this with nuts and raisins, craisins…the possibilities are pretty much endless! This should definitely be in your breakfast rotation. It’s breakfast for a whole week in 30 minutes. Thirty. Minutes! That’s even easier and quicker than my breakfast hash. 🙂 Try out this apple cinnamon baked oatmeal the next time you meal prep or maybe need to make a quick and filling breakfast for the whole family.
I hope you get to try this out and make it your own. Thanks for reading!
