Last weekend, my good friend had us over for Sunday morning brunch during the LDS General Conference, it’s one of our favorite weekends! She made this baked oatmeal that everyone loved! A friend recently shared the recipe with her, so the source is a friend of a friend. My boys went nuts for it though so I’m glad I got my hands on the recipe. Thanks Jess! Owen is my big oatmeal eater and he couldn’t get enough of this. He’s been asking for it every morning for breakfast this week!
I adapted the recipe just a little, but made notes of the changes in the recipe below so you can choose your own adventure. For best results you should chill the oatmeal overnight before making but I’ve skipped this step and it still tastes amazing. So if you have time to prepare it the night before go for it. But don’t stress if you don’t and just whip it up the morning of. It really doesn’t take long to prepare though….like five minutes max.
This seriously tastes like dessert though.
Like strawberry shortcake in oatmeal form. Heavenly! And I feel like I can’t get full eating it….must.have.more. Unfortunately the boys feel the same way.
Let me know if you love like we do!
Also….how is it already Thursday? We have friends visiting for their Spring break so we are playing right along with them like it’s ours too. Skipping school, breaking bed times. There will be hell to pay as soon as it catches up to us. But we’re having the best week! Hope you are too!
