Fall mornings are the best kind of mornings. The cool, crisp air, just makes me want to curl up in a blanket on the couch and dive into a bowl of breakfast goodness. Baked oatmeal is so easy to do and it makes a great warm comforting breakfast. Top it with some ice cream, and you have yourself an awesome dessert!
My neighbors went apple picking over the weekend, and kindly brought back some extra apples for Aaron and I. I am not one for apple pie, but I do have oatmeal almost every morning during the work week, or some form of it (over night oats, granola, oatmeal). I immediately knew I was going to bake the apples into my oatmeal for the week.
Baking oatmeal is great, it requires little prep, and you can throw basically just about anything in it to flavor it up. I have done chocolate chips, strawberries, and bananas.
This morning I sprinkled some of my home made granola on top for some added crunch and it was just what the doctor ordered. Only thing I slightly regret is putting this on a plate and not eating it out of a bowl ;)
