I eat microwaved and stovetop oatmeal all the time, but there’s just something about baked oatmeal that feels extra fancy. In actuality though, baked oatmeal is just as simple and easy to make, so it’s special without the fuss! This recipe was created as a way to use up the leftover pulp from making almond-goji milk (you could also make muffins!), but rather than being snuck in and hidden, the pulp is really the star of the dish. The sweetness of the goji berries are accentuated by a touch of vanilla and honey, while the crunchy almonds give the oatmeal a richness that no joke tastes like butter. So if you’re in the mood for a warm, cozy, spoonable breakfast or brunch, get baking!
