The first time I heard “baked oatmeal” I had to stop and think about it. Was that a good thing or a bad thing? Well, I couldn’t make an informed decision without trying it first – GOOD THING!!
It almost felt like I was eating dessert for breakfast, but with some really good things for you in it. It is a very hearty breakfast with some good brain food for the kiddos. It is important they get their protein in the morning and this oatmeal has at least 8 grams of protein.
The best part of baked oatmeal is that it is easy to put together, the leftovers can last a long time, and it smells great! In fact, I can smell it now as it is baking in my own oven. Nothing better on a chilly Texas morning.
