Whether you’re Canadian or American, the time leading up to Thanksgiving is full of excitement and stress. There's the promise of going home, seeing friends and family, and enjoying a meal that didn’t come out of a can.
You can see Thanksgiving weekend as the light at the end of the school-work tunnel, but you know that there’s plenty of work to get done before you can go home. Leading up to Thanksgiving, you’re busy but you want to be festive. You want to embrace the fall season, including the fall eats, but you have an 8:30 lecture and a test you haven’t studied for at noon. You want the Thanksgiving pie, but you need to put in work first.
That’s where these pie-inspired baked oatmeal cups come in. They’re simple, easy to make, and taste pretty darn good. You can take them on the go, heat them up for breakfast, or munch on them while doing readings. Anything is possible with pumpkin, blueberry, and apple pie.
