{BAKED OATMEAL}

This recipe is so yummy (thanks to Kelly Shradley for the recipe years ago!) Seriously. I know the name may sound not so appealing but try it and I promise you will not be disappointed. I like to make this for breakfast when we have overnight guests because 1. it’s a crowd pleaser, 2. it’s easy, 3. it’s inexpensive to make, and 4. I typically have all the ingredients on hand.

It had actually been awhile since I made this delightful breakfast goody and was reminded of it when my 4 year old nephew said “auntie ashlee how come you don’t make me oatmeal anymore?” haha. He definitely has me wrapped around his little finger because I went out right away to pick up the ingredients so I could make it for him this morning.

Try it and let me know what you think!
