Baked Oatmeal with Collagen
The winter holidays are officially coming! If you’re hosting family, the holidays might mean figuring out what to serve for breakfast to house guests. And what about once the holidays are over and you’re back at work, needing a tasty, quick breakfast you don’t have to make every morning? Surely one breakfast dish can’t solve both of these conundrums, right? Wrong! Enter: baked oatmeal.
Baked oatmeal is a yummy twist on an old breakfast staple. It’s easy, tasty, and a simple way to make several servings of breakfast at once so you can serve a group or have several mornings of breakfast ready to go in just one prep-time. Plus, you are free to switch the recipe up! Not a fan of cranberries or almonds? Try it with blueberries, chopped apples, or any of your favorite oatmeal toppings instead.
Add Collagen to your Oatmeal
The added benefits of incorporating Traditional Tonic Nourishing Collagen to the recipe allows you to feel good about eating it, too! Adding our collagen to this recipe doesn’t change the taste at all and it makes it possible for you to get your collagen in without even having to think about it.
If you’re making this oatmeal just for yourself or a small family, cut the leftovers into portioned squares and freeze them. Then the next time you need a quick bite before work, school, or the gym, you can pop a piece in the microwave on a damp paper towel and have breakfast ready in seconds. If you’re looking for a breakfast to help you feel gym-ready use our Gym and Tonic instead of Traditional Tonic.
