Need a healthy, filling breakfast that the kids will actually eat? Its become a First Day of School tradition in our house to make Oh My Heaven. Guests of 5 Corners Bed & Breakfast are often treated to this yummy baked oatmeal; only its like no oatmeal you’ve ever had! Our favorite way to serve it is with fresh strawberries or blueberries and a dash of milk but if you want to give it an extra protein boost add sliced almonds; an extra zap of fruit then add dried cranberries or raisins. The options are endless. If you want to take a little something special in to the teacher’s workroom to get you through the first day, you can easily double this recipe and bake in a 13×9 pan.
