There is just something about oatmeal in the morning! It’s so comforting, filling and hearty, not to mention delicious! I love the baked oatmeal because it’s quite simple to make and so it makes meal prep super easy. This oatmeal bake is perfect for fall or winter – and if you love carrot cake, it’s certainly going to be delicious for you!
