Oats have long been a breakfast staple. They're easy to prepare and always filling. However, oats are not always a joy to eat. While oats may be the healthier option, many would opt for cereal for its wide variety of flavors. Enter baked oats.

Thanks to TikTok, boring oats have gotten a makeover. After viral videos of whipped coffee and pancake cereals, TikTokers have brought oats into the spotlight. Shape reports that #BakedOats now has nearly 80 million followers.
