My husband and I spent a long weekend at a bed-and-breakfast not far from our home. The owners shared this delicious recipe with me, which I've made my own after a couple of simple changes.

"Great!!! I eliminated the brown sugar, replaced it with unsweetened applesauce, used cashew milk and reduced it to 2 cups (to accommodate the extra moisture in the applesauce), added 1/4 cup of chia seeds, and added sliced apples drizzled with honey on top!!! SO GOOD, what a great idea, especially to make and keep in the fridge for a few extra days of breakfast."

"I'm usually a cereal kind of girl every morning but I've been trying to break that. This was a great change! I did use dried cranberries in place of the dried blueberries."

"Fell in love with baked oatmeal! Why have I never had this before... it has a creamy custardy flavor while the top gets crunchy and sweet. This is the perfect baked oatmeal recipe for a scrumptious breakfast - perfect for holidays to share with guests and family. Prepare the night before, pull out and bake... presto! Easy and lovely breakfast in the morning."
