Try baked oatmeal for a unexpected morning treat. It’s a mix between an oatmeal bar and traditional creamy breakfast oatmeal.
Having family dinner time is important in our house, and most nights we eat dinner as a family. But breakfast is a meal that we rarely eat together.
I’m partially to blame because I’m not a big breakfast eater….but I’ve found if I actually cook breakfast, they will all get up and eat with me! Like, Baked Peanut Butter Oatmeal
Sometimes if I tell my daughters the night before what I plan on making for breakfast, one of them will get up in time to help me. But it has to be something really yummy to get them up for that! haha
Oatmeal would not be something they would get up for, much less help me with…….but spike it with peanut butter, tell them it’s baked and will taste like a giant oatmeal cookie they can cover in milk……..and they’re racing to the kitchen to help!
Sneaky me…….oatmeal is both nutritious and deeply satisfying and a much better alternative to cold sugary cereal.
Have the kids grease the pan, and measure out dry ingredients.
Summary: like eating a cookie for breakfast!
- 1-1/2 cups quick cooking oats
- 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
