So with the start of the new year, like everyone else, I decided to try and get rid of some of these blogger pounds. Starting a dessert blog is like starting college, you are destined to gain the freshman 15.

So between starting the blog and having little to no will power, my muffin top is more like a full on 10 inch cake. It’s just not pretty. I wasn’t going to give up baking or treats so I am just going to add in a few healthy ones every once and a while.

Oh and I’ve started getting back into running again. I don’t like doing it but I love the way I feel after. When I leave the gym or get back from a class I am energized and ready to take on the world. I just need to keep remembering that on the days when I would rather do anything but get but chubby butt to the gym.

So this baked oatmeal is on the healthy side. I did add a tsp of Cookie Butter to the top and it was amazing. It wasn’t even like eating something healthy. And what was even better is that it’s already portioned. That is a big bonus.

    I think a breakfast item that tastes like cookies would help me avoid eating a few of the real things

    What a great recipe! I’d eat it for sure, which would be a miracle. Love the cookie butter on top, of course!

    Yum, that looks delish! Even I’d eat that! ;) Since I don’t have cookie butter, I guess I’ll have to slather my oatmeal with peanut butter or Nutella. It’s the breakfast of champions!
