Don’t ask me what I was thinking when I decided I need to eat oatmeal in the middle of summer! It just sounded good!
I didn’t want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen even though I wanted something tasty and delicious.
So I came up with 5 Minute Microwave Baked Oatmeal. I wanted oven baked oatmeal but I was in no way turning on the oven. It should be a rule no ovens turn on in the summer…ever!
Bring on a glass dish and some microwave for fast baked oatmeal.
That’s right no wasted time here. It’s not like you have a ton of time to play Betty Crocker
on busy days.
That doesn’t mean you don’t want to eat healthy. Don’t give up and submit to fast food. It usually isn’t going to be very healthy and its going to be more expensive to boot.
This breakfast is simple to and easy to mix together. It’s awesome because you can mix up the flavor and toppings with whatever you have on hand.
Try out this 5 minute microwave oatmeal for a budget friendly and healthy breakfast on a busy morning!
