Having breakfast ready and in the fridge makes our mornings go so smooth. My boys don’t particularly enjoy this oatmeal, but myself and my baby girl love it! It’s perfect to make once a week and place in the fridge.
I prepare ours by adding 1 Tbsp of butter and a generous drizzle of honey. Brown sugar is also a delicious addition! If you want a more traditional oatmeal texture, and some milk or cream to the heating up process. It’s also delicious topped with fruit. Microwave for 30-45 seconds.
The original recipe calls this Amish Baked Oatmeal. It also encourages it be served warm same day, but I promise it’s fine to store and eat on. It takes us about a week to eat through, and I’ve had no issues with it.
