Cinnamon Raisin Baked Oatmeal
If I had to pick one thing to eat for breakfast for the rest of my life it would be oatmeal. My family has it at least twice a week and it’s something we eat year round. Whether it’s overnight oats or a bowl of warm oatmeal (my go-to). My current favorite is Cinnamon Raisin Baked Oatmeal.
CINNAMON RAISIN BAKED OATMEAL
Have you ever had baked oatmeal? It’s such a great meal prep hack. I will often make baked oatmeal on the weekends and portion it out for the upcoming week. Simply heat up a bowl and breakfast for the week is ready! I also love baked oatmeal for a weekend brunch. So delicious right from the oven and it makes for an easy way to feed a crowd.
INGREDIENTS FOR BAKED OATMEAL
Cinnamon Raisin Baked Oatmeal couldn’t be more simple. My guess is that you already have a lot of the ingredients in your pantry! It’s a simple line up:
-old fashioned rolled oats
-almond milk (or your favorite milk)
HOW TO MAKE BAKED OATMEAL
As you can imagine this recipe is super simple! It’s simply a matter of mixing all the ingredients and pouring them into a prepared pan. Bake for under an hour and voile la! Breakfast is served! My favorite way to eat it is drizzled with a bit of cream and some sliced banana. The oatmeal is sweet enough that it doesn’t need anything else. Fresh berries would be nice on top, too.
MAKING BAKED OATMEAL AHEAD: HOW TO STORE IT AND REHEAT IT
When the oatmeal is fully cooled, cut it into portions….roughly 4-inch squares. Store the oatmeal in a glass container with a tight fitting lid. When ready to re-heat put an oatmeal square in a bowl, cover with a damp paper towel and reheat int he microwave for 30 second increments until it’s warm. Drizzle with a splash of cream and maple syrup if desired!
It’s really that simple! Enjoy!
