Sweet oven baked oats

Picture perfect breakfast, yet so simple to make.
Oatmeal will forever stay one of my favourite ingredients, like ever 👌😋. I found this recipe by DelishKnowledge and it’s a perfect fit with all the seasonal fruits right now. Whether you mix it with strawberries, blue berries, raspberries or blackberries, it’s goooood. Also, if your kitchen cupboard isn’t filled with walnuts at the moment, just throw in any other kind of nuts you have laying around right now. Just chopped or crunch the almonds, cashew nuts, parents, hazelnuts or whatever you like before throwing into the mixture. Oh, the original recipe calls for 1/4 cup maple syrup instead of 2 tablespoons. But combined with all the other sweet ingredients, I decided to cut down in the liquid sweetener. Feel free to add it nevertheless. The simple things in life don’t take that much time, enjoy!
