This is my third recipe variation of baked oats and it might be my favorite! I have a lemon blueberry version and a berries & cream version as well. I am just loving the convenience of this meal on busy mornings. It’s portable and although I enjoy it warmed up you can totally eat it cold as well! I pair this meal with a protein coffee to make sure I’m getting plenty of protein in! This is a great macro friendly way to get in oatmeal. Typically oatmeal is really high in carb and has minimal protein. Give it a try and let me know what you think!
