My family has been on a baked oatmeal kick for breakfast. I’m not a morning person and I can prep this the night before and bake the next morning while we are getting ready. I’m a huge fan of coffee cake so I incorporated some of those ingredients to make a yummy healthier on the go breakfast option.

I prefer to use these rolled oats and always add butter on top because I’m as Southern as they come. You can double or triple this recipe and heat up for breakfast all week!

Happy baking, friends!
