Customizable High Protein Baked Oatmeal

This is a great breakfast or snack. There are plenty of ways to customize this one!
I have been wanting to make one of these for so long and have been too lazy to do it. So, anyone that is sitting here reading this thinking that you can't do it because it's "too much work", I've been there and know that feeling. Let me tell ya, being able to eat all the dishes that we prepped ourselves this week was incredibly rewarding. We took the time to make some healthy dishes to make our days easier and to fuel our bodies in the right way.

Y'all, this bake was freaking delicious!! We will absolutely be making it again and I will be eating this as dessert, at times! 😆 No kidding, it's that good. It also is a great way to get your protein, fruits, and healthy carbs! Not only does it taste great, but it isn't as difficult to make as you might think. Didn't even need a mixer. Whoop whoop!

You have several options for add-ins for this bake and that I LOVE!! We chose to add blueberries, blackberries, bananas, and protein powder. You could add dried cranberries or raisins, any berries frozen or fresh, mini chocolate chips, drizzle maple syrup on top. We added Vanilla Vegan Shakeology from Beachbody because of the added benefits this protein powder offers. It's packed with protein, antioxidants + superfoods, pre + probiotics, adaptogens, supergreens + phytonutrients, and vitamins + minerals! Hell yeah!

If you would like to make this dairy free you can use coconut, soy, almond-based yogurt and a non-dairy milk alternative. There are usually ways to alter recipes to fit your specific diet.
