I love feeding my kids a nice hot breakfast, but let’s be completely honest. I am not a morning person. I am not June Cleaver and I will not wake up at 5 AM just to put a hot breakfast on the table. Most mornings it is cold cereal, granola bars, or microwave oatmeal on my table. If my kids eat a hot breakfast, it is usually because I am cooking it for dinner.
Now this recipe is something that is right up my alley. Baked oatmeal is not something that I had tried before, but it sounded delish and I was intrigued. So I tweaked the recipe a bit for my family and whipped up a batch in less than 5 minutes. Tossed it in the oven and my house smelled like a fresh pan of Oatmeal cookies.
My son is my pickiest eater and typically will not eat oatmeal, let me just say he ate this up and wanted seconds. It is that good! So if you are looking for something nutritious to feed your little ones for breakfast but don’t want to get up early. Bake a pan of this the night before. Heat it in the microwave with a little bit of milk and you have an amazing breakfast on the table in no time!
