The best part?  Single serve!  Grab and go!  I don’t know what it is, but there is just something about individual servings.  My kids think they’re the bomb.

We like to eat these warm, I would definitely recommend warming them up, even if you’re on the way out the door.  Pop them in the microwave for 40 seconds and you’re off!

If you’re eating in, take the cupcake wrapper off and put the single serve cranberry baked oatmeal cup in a bowl. After you warm it up, give it a splash of milk.  Vanilla yogurt is really good on it too.
