MCLV Mange | Healthy Baked Oatmeal

While trying to come up with some fun new ways to enjoy my oats, I stumbled on the idea of baked oatmeal! It’s a healthy dish that you can add any toppings you want to, plus you can make it in advance and eat all week. I do love my meal prepping. Also – It’s so delicious and decadent tasting that you could definitely make it into a dessert.

MCLV Mange: Hearty Breakfast Oatmeal

I didn’t eat breakfast for years and when I reintroduced it into my diet I noticed a few changes. While my energy levels didn’t waiver much, my endurance did increase. Long workouts, longer runs.

Now that’s worth committing to!

One of my favorite breakfasts has become overnight oats or a hearty oatmeal.

I like playing with ingredients and trying new recipes – Stay tuned for my mouth-watering peanut butter oats! – But this super nutritious version has become a staple of late.
