Baked Oatmeal

If you love oatmeal cookies, try this quick and satisfying breakfast.

While the meal itself is great, I’m not going to lie, I think the house smell might be the best part. An hour after we have finished I can still smell the waft of heavenly aromas in the air.

If you’re looking for an unhealthier version of the one I am posting, you might try the original (link on the adapted from part of the recipe below) which calls for butter and twice the sugar. 

I personally don’t like the idea of starting off the day with the most amount of sugar possible.

AND, if you’re using fruit, that’s a better way to make something naturally sweet.

You can get experimental with the toppings, anything from berries to granola, heavy cream or almond milk.

I like it with peaches and regular warmed up milk myself.

It makes about enough for about 3 people to have full bowls, 4 if you go smaller on the portions.

I hope you enjoy this yummy breakfast and if so, please let me know in the comments!

Coconut oil will add a slight coconut flavor to the oatmeal. You might also add coconut flakes to the batter if you'd like a bit more coconut flavor and texture.

If you don't like coconut, use butter instead.
