Vegan Overnight Baked Oatmeal
I don’t know if you are like me, but I am very busy in the morning. Since getting a great breakfast is essential to the success of any day, I have to be creative in order to manage this. I have found that if I prepare a baked oatmeal in the evening, refrigerate it overnight, and bake it while I am getting ready in the morning, I have a warm, healthy, delicious breakfast to start the day off on the right foot. I love this creamy and comforting oatmeal.
