The $10 Food Day: Berry Baked Oatmeal Recipe
Looking for a really cheap breakfast recipe that feeds four? Give baked oatmeal a try. I’m pretty sure you’ll love it.
This was my first time making baked oatmeal, and I quite liked it. Once complete, it almost has the texture of a muffin or a baked energy bar. I’m excited to try it again with different ingredients – I imagine it would be good with bananas and walnuts, or apples and cinnamon.
