Baked Raspberry Oatmeal Casserole; Just Like Grandmother Used To Make, Only Better

A satisfying "stick to your ribs" breakfast perfect for the frost filled mornings: Raspberry Oatmeal Casserole

As I have explained time and time again, I am a person that needs to constantly be on the go.  I thrive on the stress of balancing a busy schedule.  With a lack of new recipes on the blog, there is no question my life has been nothing short of organized chaos.

With a house in desperate need of being vacuumed, an empty fridge and my comfiest sweatpants on, I am about to enjoy my first night at home in a while.  My plan:  prepping meals for the busy week to come, a Blue Moon, and "The Bachelorette Wedding".

Sometimes the simplicity of a quiet Sunday night in is what this busy girl needs.  With the craziness of the week beginning again at 7AM Monday morning with nurse residency, followed by a trip to NYC I can only expect another week of late nights and early mornings.  I am a firm believer that breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

Growing up when the winter months arrived and the frost began to creep in, my grandmother would also make sure we started our mornings with a bowl of oatmeal, as it "sticks to your ribs and keeps you warm and full."  This deliciously sweet oatmeal casserole has done nothing less than stick to my chilly ribs.

Raspberry Oatmeal Casserole (Serves 6)

  • 1 cup of quick oatmeal
  • 1/2 cup of almond milk

I noticed you left out in the nutrition part how much sugar it has in it. I can only imagine!!

I'm thinking that's why I'm going to like it ... I'm imagining how much sugar it has in it. =)

It's six servings, so that's not a "lot" of surgar. Looks like a healthy easy recipe that I am looking forward to trying. Thanks Taylor for posting this recipe, I like raspberries and oatmeal, too!
