Strawberry Baked Oatmeal Cups

Recipe by Chung-Ah of Damn Delicious

As mom said, breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but sometimes there’s not enough time to whip something up before heading out the door. Fortunately, these strawberry baked oatmeal cups can be made the night before (and stored in the fridge overnight) so you can just pop these into the oven in the morning while you’re getting ready and voila, breakfast is served.
