Ok, I would like to start this post off by saying that I am addicted to this oatmeal. Like it’s really an issue. I’ve made this stuff 3 days in a row! and for the first two days I ate the whole thing within a few hours or I ate the whole thing in one whole sitting. Today I maintained self control though, only ate half this time 😀 saved the last half for tomorrow’s breakfast 🙂

This baked oatmeal is quickly turning into one of my favorite meals. Mostly because it’s super nummy and really easy to make. I love easy recipes because, let’s be honest, i’m pretty lazy 😀
