Oats are the base of your recipe and are a great source of vitamins, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants. You can choose to use any type you’d like but for most of my oat recipes I like to use the regular Old Fashioned Oats by Quaker Oats. I like having oats in the morning because they keep me full for hours and I can power through my mornings.

Blender Bottle Tip
I’ve been using my blender bottle for mixing liquids for a while now. It’s faster, less messy, and easy to pour once it’s all mixed together. I even do this when I’m scrambling eggs. I crack the eggs into the blender bottle, give it a good shake, and pour them into the pan or baking dish that I am using. I also do this with my egg whites and it makes them nice and fluffy! So, for this recipe, I put all of my wet ingredients into the blender bottle, gave it a good shake, and poured it over my oats mixture. Once everything was well covered, I popped it in the oven, set the timer, and patiently waited for these to be ready.
I have a bit of a sweet tooth and love dessert like items any time of day. If you’re looking for another healthy, on the sweeter side item to quickly put together then you might want to check out my Easy Grilled Cream Cheese Sandwich Recipe. It’s packed with protein and delicious.
