This recipe takes your favorite bowl of oatmeal and bakes it into a delectable muffin! Oats are full of soluble fiber, which can lower your cholesterol and keep hunger at bay. Oatmeal makes a delicious, healthy breakfast, but it’s also high in calories. To help me watch my portions, I love making these individual muffins. Top with your favorite dried fruits, nuts, or chocolate chips. One of my favorite combinations is dried pomegranates with pecans.
