Sweet Potato Baked Oatmeal

Pre-baked oatmeal is a genius plan that I wish I’d thought of earlier. :O This is awesome for portioning out food too! Since sweet potatoes have been so awesomely cheap lately, I got a whole bunch and have been steadily making recipes with em’ ever since. Due to the colder weather, my freezing cold protein shakes haven’t been such a pleasant thought in the mornings. They’re delicious, but like I said, they’re cold. ;_;

This made me around 17 “muffins.” (They can seriously just be eaten as muffins.) I adapted the recipe from here. I didn’t really add any sweetener, so I’d recommend you do that if you want a sweeter, more dessert-like baked oatmeal. :] You can make an “icing” of sorts with Greek yogurt + protein powder, drizzle with some honey, throw in some nuts and dried fruits…
