I had never tried baked oatmeal until I made this raspberry version. Once again, I was up to my old tricks of shopping avoidance, and trying to make something to eat with what I had laying around. I always seem to have oatmeal on hand. Its a good staple.
These raspberries were nearing their prime so I knew had to use them up. A dessert was not going to cut it in terms of satisfying my hunger, so I thought perhaps a breakfasty item would be more appropriate (and less guilt inducing).
Eggs, oats, flax, almonds, fruit…….sounds healthy to me!
Throughout the course of a day, The Hubs and I ate the whole pan of this. A little for breakfast, a little for second breakfast (TM), a little sweet treat after lunch…..it was really, really delicious. I think the only thing that would have made it better would have been the addition of coconut. Drooooooooool.
Sometimes I feel like I’m on that show Chopped minus the weirdo ingredients. For example, if you look in my pantry right now you’ll find peanuts, dried hatch chiles, marshmallow fluff, canned beans, oatmeal (of course) and popcorn kernels. Ready, set, prepare a meal! My friends I’m traveling with tomorrow are in for one weird travel snack.

This looks so yummy. I just love raspberries and oatmeal is my favorite choice by far for breakfast. Thanks for sharing! Have to make it on Sunday!
Hello! YUM. Pinning on my community Oatmeal Board and sharing like heck. I can’t wait to make this. Thank you.
Hi there, I thought this was a fantastic way to use leftover cherries (I didn’t have 2 cups of raspberries). I think I did something wrong, because I thought it was kinda dry. 🙁 Have you tried this idea with cherries, or noticed a similar issue, and if so, do you have any suggestions? Thanks so much!!
I’ve never tried with cherries, but the raspberries I used were very juicy so that may explain it. YOu can always increase the milk by 1/4 to 1/2 cup depending on how dry you thought it was. That should help!
