For some reason since I’ve been plagued will all day pregnancy sickness, regular oats just don’t work for me. However this baked oatmeal recipe is able to settle my stomach for a little while. Since my body is used to eating just bagels and cream cheese, it was probably excited to get all these nutrients from oats, almonds, apples, chia seeds, cinnamon, etc. Not to mention it was one of those meals where neither kid made a single peep and inhaled their breakfast in 2 minutes. Nothing beats that.
You can swap different fruits, nuts, and flavors to switch it up.
