Did you know, breakfast is the most important meal of the day? Well, I'm sure you do. We all do. That is why we like to start the day right, with a good breakfast.
This is a simple and easy recipe for baked oatmeal. This is my daughter's recipe. She made it for us one morning while she was staying with us...Thanks Honey, for a great recipe!!
I have to say, I'm not really an oatmeal person. My husband likes to make oatmeal, as a porridge, with nuts and Dried fruits oatmeal...He always says, "eat, it's good for you", so I will eat it. On the other hand, this Amish oatmeal is something I really enjoy!!
Serve it topped with fresh berries (or frozen ones) or other fruits you like. Try adding a few spoons of chopped pecans, walnuts or almonds. For a sweeter taste, drizzle top with maple syrup, or Agave syrup. If you find it dry, (or even if not) use some milk over top. My hubby likes it with almond milk.
Delicious and...it's good for you! :-)
My choice of fruit for the day; papaya, cantaloupe and strawberries. Yummy!

Amish oatmeal served with fresh blueberries. Love blueberries, and they are one of the best antioxidants.
