{dairy free} Nutritious Baked Oatmeal

baked oatmeal

One of my absolute favorite, go-to recipes for my family’s breakfast is baked oatmeal.  The first recipe I received was from a very dear friend, at an informational class I attended.  I have since modified it just a tiny bit for my family, because we have two children with dairy allergies, we make a dairy free version.

So, I will include those options for my readers that are dairy free as well.


My daughter asks for this recipe several times a week; she and the tot devour it!  We like to enjoy it with eggs, or another protein and some fruit.
