Morning Saver Baked Oatmeal

Mornings are hectic.  I get it.  I don’t always feel like making myself something to eat but I know I need to fuel my bod for the day ahead!

I love the idea of making my own yummy oatmeal that is ready to go in the morning and feeds hubby and I all week!  Plus I know exactly what is in there and I can use up all those extra bits and pieces of nuts and dried fruit I have in the pantry!  I think it turned out really well and it was like eating a piece of cake for breakfast! ….only less sweet!  If you need you can drizzle a little bit of maple syrup or honey on top.
