Make it Monday – Baked Oatmeal “Muffins”

Hello! Make it Monday is back today and with it comes a new/old recipe. New, because I haven’t posted it here before (pretty sure I haven’t anyway) and old, because it is one that I shared a few years ago on an older blog I had. This recipe will be a quick favorite that you can easily add for your busy mornings during the work week or for your lazy Saturday mornings when you don’t want to make breakfast.

So, to reiterate…why should you make these???

Busy schedule in the morning? Make these Sunday night and have them ready to go for the rest of the week as a quick healthy breakfast. Have plenty of time for breakfast? Make and eat them fresh from the oven with a side bowl of fruit and yogurt. Seriously, you can’t go wrong with these little gems.

Okay…the recipe.
