Guys, I seriously think I could start an entire blog dedicated to breakfast. I just love breakfast foods. Every time I decide to share one of my favorite chicken recipes with you, I think… nah, I have a muffin recipe that I’m dying to post! Who needs a meat and potatoes dinner when you can have buttermilk pancakes or french toast? It’s true… I’m hopelessly in love with breakfast, and so naturally, I have another delicious new breakfast recipe to start your morning!

I love a good oatmeal, especially when it’s filled with lots of yummy things! On busy mornings, I’ll throw together some instant oats with blueberries and almonds, and I know that I’m getting a good, healthy breakfast that won’t leave me feeling hungry in an hour. Quick oats are great, but have you ever tried baked oatmeal? Yumm-o. This is definitely my favorite way to make it!

To make the oatmeal, I like to use almond milk, which typically has 50% more calcium than dairy milk, and no cholesterol or saturated fat. I switched to using almond milk a few years ago, as a healthier alternative for my smoothies and cereal, and now I use it in all kinds of recipes.

Fun fact: I am a HUGE cereal lover. Someday I dream of having an entire pantry stocked with every type of cereal imaginable. Is that normal?

For my smoothie recipes, I like to use Silk Unsweetened Almondmilk, which has only 30 calories per serving. It helps cut calories and fills my body with good, plant-based nutrition, and I actually prefer the flavor of almond milk. Try my Strawberry Banana Oatmeal Smoothie or Blueberry Pomegranate Smoothie and see! Drinking one of these spinach smoothies everyday keeps me feeling healthy, energized, and ready to take on the world! Or at least ready for a day full of blog work, kids’ homework, laundry, dinner, dishes, and the rest of my daily chore list. 😉

For this oatmeal recipe, I used Silk’s new Almondmilk Protein + Fiber, which has a whopping 5 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber. All good stuff! Try this sweet and creamy Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal for breakfast soon!
