It wasn’t until a few years ago that I first tried baked oatmeal and now I’m totally hooked!

Just like stovetop oatmeal, it’s so versatile, but the texture is so different.

So the people that don’t normally like the runny porridge-like oatmeal love this!

And I’m obsessed with this cinnamon, apple and cranberry, walnut combo.

Plus it’s sweetened with real maple syrup instead of sugar and uses coconut oil instead of butter so you can feel good about eating this for breakfast! Or lunch, or dinner. That’s cool too.?
