Overnight Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal – Perfect Make Ahead Breakfast!

During the busy school season, mornings are the hardest in our house – it seems we are always rushing to get everything done, so often breakfast is a fast & quick meal – cereal, toast/bagel, etc. However, I know it’s so important for my girls to have a hearty, healthy breakfast to start their day, so I’m always on the hunt for new ideas to try. I love this Overnight Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal recipe as it’s a great way to provide a healthy & substantial breakfast for your kids before school without having to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. Since you make this the night before, all you have to do is heat it up in the mornings and your kids will have a hearty breakfast to start their school day off right!

Baked Oatmeal is so versatile too- you can top it with berries or seasonal fruit or milk and sugar.  My favorite topping is with brown sugar and cinnamon.
