Nourishing Baked Oatmeal

You can prepare this healthy breakfast dish the night before, then refrigerate overnight and put into the oven when you get up for a warming, homemade morning treat. This recipe is highly adaptable. You can add a few frozen berries, sliced banana or nuts to the mix for something different. Serve with a dollop of plain Greek yoghurt.
