I'm settling into being at home and life is one big blur these days.

This tasty make-ahead breakfast is filled with all sorts of healthy goodness in the perfect gingerbread package. Tis the season after all!
Here's why you'll love my Gingerbread Baked Oatmeal Cups recipe...
If you haven't tried baked oatmeal or baked oatmeal cups before you are missing out! It's basically a combination of oats and milk that bake into easy to eat muffins or squares. This version just happens to be vegan but some have eggs in them.
The recipes are generally really easy to throw together. You can make a batch early in the week and enjoy them as part of a healthy breakfast or snack all week long. I actually ate these with eggs when I was preggo.
I love this Gingerbread Baked Oatmeal Cups recipe because the flavors are so cozy for December and the holiday season. I packed in cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and ginger so it even smells like gingerbread when they bake in the oven.
The muffins are great for portion control or even eating on the run, which is wonderful during this very busy season of life!
In fact, as soon as I get my head back above water I'm going to make myself another batch to enjoy. These are perfect for those of us who don't feel like they have a lot of time to cook.
I hope you enjoy this Gingerbread Baked Oatmeal Cups recipe as much as I do!
