Baked oatmeal is my new breakfast addiction. I mean, I cannot stop experimenting with new flavour combinations! Ask Vicki, each week she looks forward to a new oatmeal bake that we sit and madly devour after our shoot. Seriously people, if you love oatmeal as much as I do (you have it basically every single day) you need to try this. Baked oatmeal will change your mornings!! I love this recipe because you wouldn’t even know there’s veggies in your breakfast. Bring on the fibre!
