  • Whole grain oatmeal will work best for this recipe. You can use quick oats but typically the dish will be a bit more dry if you go this route.
  • You can also use this recipe to make baked oatmeal cups! Lightly spray a 12 cavity muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray. Portion batter into the tin and bake at 400°F for 20-25 minutes until muffin tops are a nice golden brown color.
