Two Guiding Stars icon Two Guiding Stars indicate better nutritional value.

These little cups are the champs of make-ahead breakfast foods. Mix up a big batch at the beginning of the week and keep them in the fridge for an easy reheat option for breakfast or snacks. They’re definitely better warm as the texture is that of baked oatmeal, not of muffins. Toss in a little extra fruit or nuts to customize the recipe for your family.
