I’m always on the hunt for something new and delicious for breakfast. You know the saying, “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day”. I’m not sure if I agree with this saying, but everyone and anyone I’ve know has always ingrained that saying my brain. So I always try to have some sort of breakfast. No matter what I eat, I try to keep it on the healthier side.
Now I’m not gonna lie. It’s very hard to have breakfast in the mornings when kids have school and the hubby has work. There are times where the kids will just have a quick bowl of cereal or fruit and my poor husband will grab a granola bar on the way out.
Since we’re still in the first month of the new year, I feel like I have to try to be creative and good. I have to give it at least a month of eating healthy foods, right? Needless to say, I’m counting down the days until February 1st, so all the rules are out the door. 🙂
I’m not always the healthiest of people. I like my fair share of fried foods, breads and desserts, but there are items that I try to make healthier in our house. Almond milk is one of them. I love almond milk. Don’t you? I’ve noticed with anything healthy or non-healthy, you’ll have your preferences of brands. Our favorite brand of almond milk is Almond Breeze. The taste it spot on and we can’t get enough of it. And trust me, I think I’ve tried every brand in the book.
This past weekend I wanted to prepare for the coming week, so I wanted to think of some new ways to have a healthier breakfast. I also needed to make sure it was kid friendly. I have a picky 8-year-old and she will voice her opinion when she doesn’t like something.
This baked oatmeal turned out so good, that I had two helpings the day I made it. Don’t tell anyone k. That’s kinda of embarrassing. 😉
I threw in some frozen mixed berries and it made this baked oatmeal taste like a fruit crisp. Yum!! If it wasn’t morning, I would’ve added some vanilla ice cream on top. This oatmeal is perfect to make ahead of time and just reheat it the next few mornings. Be sure to add a little more almond milk when reheating. Makes it creamy and tastes even better in my opinion.
