baked oatmeal in a mug

Doing “baked” oatmeal in a mug at first felt strange, but after giving it a go, I was surprised at how easy it was to whip up with little to no effort quickly. On top of that, it also tastes fantastic however I am not sure if it is better than the real thing, but it would come pretty damn close!

This oatmeal is a perfect breakfast for anyone who doesn’t have a tremendous amount of time in the morning but would love a cooked breakfast to enjoy on the way to work or just at home.

You’re able to change this recipe to suit your tastes better. For example, if you can swap the fruit out for something that you prefer or add more sweetener if you prefer a sweeter easy breakfast. Don’t hesitate to tweak the recipe more to your liking! If you have a combination that you love then be sure to share it below in the comments section.

There are a quite a few other cooked breakfasts that you’re able to do in a mug. If you’re looking to keep on the healthier side of things, then something like an easy omelette or even scrambled eggs might interest you. Otherwise, french toast in a mug with some maple syrup is certainly a breakfast that you need to try out.
