Baked Oatmeal

Want to eat healthier but don’t want to break the bank? Oatmeal is a great way to get both of these worlds to collide.

Among many great health benefits it’s also a great time saver. Microwave for just a few minutes, add your toppings of choice and voila.

This recipe bumps it up a couple notches by taking a bit more time to prepare but lasting all week for you to indulge in. Say goodbye to showing up at work hungry, at least for this week.
