Take-away tips 

  1. It's better to use rolled oats for this recipe. If you don’t have rolled oats, then roast your instant oats for about a minute for better taste. 
  2. Do not overmix the batter. You might knock out all the air bubbles. 

Not only healthy, but this baked oatmeal is also labor-saving and penny-pinching. It’s a perfect substitute for overnight oats in case you want a change. Being extremely nutrient-rich and light, it can also work as a pre-workout snack that can be taken 30 minutes before a workout session.
