Sliced strawberries and dried apricots

It’s been weeeeeeks since my last baked oatmeal post. It’s also been weeks since I’ve had some.

This must change. And pronto.

Because this stuff is seriously delicious. And it’s still seriously cold outside, making anything else for breakfast seem crazy.

With strawberries showing up at the store—and actually tasting pretty darn good—this flavor combo is the perfect go-to as Mother Nature tries to get her shit together in the weather department.

Speaking of getting your shit together, this meal will totally help you do that.

Don’t have time in the morning for a hearty breakfast? One batch will get you through an entire week. No cooking involved breakfasts, or suffering with a bowl of cereal. You can even bring it with you to work, and enjoy it there.

It’s foolproof.

      They have been so hit or miss lately that I think it’s a good decision. Though, you could totally use frozen strawberries and it would be delish.
