A lot of people despise oatmeal, they think it “tastes like cardboard”. First of all- so they’ve tasted cardboard?! And second of all – oatmeal is an awesome power breakfast if made with the right stuff!
This Baked Oatmeal recipe is one I’ve used over and over again. I discovered baked oatmeal my freshman year at UC Irvine, in the dorm dining hall. It was sweet, warm, and filling.
I use vanilla soy milk instead of dairy milk and I ran out of raisins this time so I used cranberries- feel free to swap in nuts and other dried fruit.
I love baking it a little longer than the directed time because I like the oatmeal to be extra dry and crispy- creates a great texture when you mix the milk in.
Baked Oatmeal is easy and fast to serve in the morning…..scoop some into a bowl, zap it in the microwave until it get extra hot and pour some cold milk on it. You are good to go for the morning.
