Raspberry Baked Oatmeal

It’s no secret that I love baked oatmeals.  I love them in any form:  Apple Pie Baked Oatmeal, Pumpkin Spice Baked Oatmeal, Peanut Butter Baked Oatmeal…you name it.  And I often make them when I know we have a busy day the next day.  I get them all prepared the night before and pop them in the oven before I jump in the shower in the morning.  That way breakfast is being made while we’re all getting ready for the day.  Love that.  Not to mention the house smells amazing while we’re all getting ready!

Last night was one of those nights that I felt like having breakfast ready for the morning, so I decided to try something a little different than our usual standbys.  We love raspberries so I thought I’d make a Raspberry Baked Oatmeal, basically just tweaking my other recipes to include berries.  And if you don’t like raspberries you could use any kind of berry:  blueberries, strawberries, blackberries.

To say that we loved this would be an understatement.  It’s creamy and bursting with the flavour of fresh raspberries.  Really, really good.  Even the pickiest of the bunch loves baked oatmeals and he really loved this one…he said “mmmmm, Mom this is really good”  :)

All it takes is about 15 minutes of prep the night before and you have a hearty, healthy and delicious breakfast made!  You don’t even have to break a sweat with this one!  Plus, it feels good to start the new year getting back on track with good food doesn’t it?

  3. Yum! I don’t think I’ve ever made baked oatmeal before.. Going to pin this and try it out :)

  4. Gina Antignani says:

    Can you. Make them into a cookie? Also, is there a possibly to leave out egg? My daughter has sever food food allergies and egg is one. My mother in law recently Made a dessert and instead of egg she used plain yougurt and oil. However, I love help on baking a granola or oatmeal such as this bit grass are a problem. Can’t used substitutes because they all contain the egg proteins. Please help!

    P.S.
    Do you have to sit it overnight

  5. Gina Antignani says:

    Grass should read egg sorry. I also wouldn’t mind making this into a baked granola.

    • Hi Gina!
      I have never made these oatmeals without the eggs, but it’s something I would definitely like to try. If I were to make this without eggs, I would instead of the 2 eggs, add 1 mashed banana, as it may help with the binding. And I have made them without having them sit overnight – they tend to be a little drier without the overnight soak, but they are good too!

      Good luck!

  6. This looks amazing! I adore raspberries and oatmeal together, especially when cooked. Thank you for sharing this ! I also love the oranges in the photo. I practically CRAVE them in winter:)

    • Thank you Heather! This really is such a great breakfast – it’s perfect for this time of year. And I SO know what you mean about the oranges…we’re going through them like they’re going out of style right now!!

  7. This sounds like the perfect breakfast option and a great warm to start the day with something to warm the tummy.

  8. Ok, yum! Love raspberries in my oatmeal! This recipe sounds perfect for a quick saturday morning breakfast and LOOKS DELICIOUS! Great pics Jo-Anna!

  9. Wow…this oatmeal looks wonderful! I will have to try your recipe soon. I’m your newest follower on FB. Have a great night, Jo-Anna!

  10. Wow this looks & sounds delicious! My new thing is having breakfast ready ahead of time too.

  11. Hi there! This looks great!
    I have two questions: the baking dish isn’t greased or coated, right?
    And when you mention the cold oven, so you just put it in, then start the oven to get to 350, but the 40-45 min is the full time of baking, from cold oven to getting to temp?

    THANKS!

    • Hi Lucille!
      I don’t grease my pan and haven’t had any problems with the oatmeal sticking. And yes, I just stick it in the cold oven, then start it up and it’s ready after about 40-45 minutes after this time!

      Happy Baking!
