Oatmeal is good for you. It can also be really bland and boring. The store-bought instant packets are also filled with sugar. So, I resort to baking my oatmeal. It usually add some combination of fruits (fresh or dried) and/or nuts –but the base is always the same; oatmeal, yogurt, almond milk, honey and eggs. I bake it in a casserole dish, or in a muffin tin; it really depends on what I am in the mood for. I found some off-season figs and just had to buy them. I also had half a bag of walnuts left from baking a walnut cake . So, this week, my breakfast will consist of oatmeal, walnuts and figs ! I hope you make this recipe and remember, feel free to add any kind of fruit and/or nut that you like.
