Baked Oatmeal for a Quick and Easy Breakfast

I could live on baked oatmeal. Seriously. I’ll take it over regular oatmeal or oats in a jar any day of the week.

Although I’ve been making these for breakfast for years, I’ve never even mentioned them until a few days ago in my Icebreaker Indoor Marathon Relay recap.

Brenton’s mom was the first person to introduce me to baked oatmeal. Before then, I didn’t know such a thing existed. The recipe she used was from I’ve adapted it heavily over the years to make it healthier (I cut the sugar in half, substituted the butter and added some fun extras, like flaxseeds and wheat germ).

This dish is perfect for a quick and easy breakfast during the week or a special treat on weekends.  The best part? It’s guaranteed to keep you full until lunch. Feel free to substitute any dried fruit you like. Dried cherries and cranberries are my favorites, but use whatever you have on hand.


Question: What’s your favorite quick and easy breakfast? What’s your favorite way to eat oatmeal?
