Baked Raspberry Oatmeal and a Giveaway

Baked Raspberry Oatmeal from Seriously Delish...SO good!

This Baked Raspberry Oatmeal from How Sweet Eats new book, Seriously Delish is my new favorite breakfast! It’s warm, cozy and comforting…plus it’s super easy to whip up.

So I have to say, I’m a bit of a cookbook junkie. I have far too many to count.

I get excited to pre-order books…I get excited when they’re delivered…I get UBER excited to actually go to a bookstore (gasp) and browse through the aisles choosing the perfect book or 4.

And what I get mostly excited for is when internet/blogging friends are given the opportunity to pour their hearts and souls into a book…

Reading someone’s website everyday…learning about their life in relation to a recipe makes you feel like you’re friends. Even if you’ve never met.

I mean,  do I feel like I know Ina Garten after years of watching her on the food network, reading her books, and making her recipes? I guess.

But do I know Ina’s favorite color? Do I know what Ina watches on Netflix?

Do I really know how Ina feels about Kiehls or Rebecca Minkoff?

The answer to all those is no.

So yes, I do love Ina. But are we friends? Well no.


What does all this have to do with Baked Oatmeal? Well…give me a sec to bring this back around…

Jessica Merchant is the author, owner, curator, creative brain behind How Sweet Eats, and now Seriously Delish. I have read her blog for years. And over those years you develop a relationship…a kinship…a fondness. You feel like you know this person (whether you actually do or not).

Jessica is open, honest, funny and relatable. She’s a girls-girl. And as a bonus she makes pretty badass food.

So does it matter what color lipstick she is wearing? Yes. It does.

Because friends know what kind of lipstick our friends are loving.

Sorry Ina.


When I opened the pages to Jessica’s book, Seriously Delish I felt like I was opening the pages of a good friend’s book. And I think that’s how you will feel too.

And while I really love the recipes…I enjoyed the personal anecdotes before each recipe and the introduction equally as much!

So here’s the’s a good book. You will like it. You will cook from it. And you will be happy you did.

And all the while you will feel like you are cooking with a girlfriend.


When I flipped through the pages there were so many things I bookmarked, but I kept coming back to this Baked Oatmeal recipe…maybe it’s the change of the temperatures outside starting to cool off…but I just thought I needed a breakfast worth pumping my fist for.

We get into a cereal rut here in my house…so I decided to shake it up.

So glad I did..this recipe is possibly my favorite I’ve made in a long while.

Baked Raspberry Oatmeal.. LOVE this warm, cozy breakfast!

Yes, it takes a bit longer than an Instant Oatmeal, but I have even made it the night before, and just heated it up in the morning and it’s just as good!

Really all you do is whisk together you ingredients…Jessica used coconut milk in this recipe, which I would have never thought to do, but LOVED!

I mixed in some fresh raspberries…but you could absolutely use blueberries, strawberries or even banana!


Just bake it in a small casserole dish and wait!


Also, Jessica’s recipe is written to drizzle a little brown butter on top when it’s done.. and I can’t stress to you how delicious this would be. I actually omitted it because I was feeling a little lazy, and also trying to cut a few calories, but you should definitely try it!

Baked Oatmeal.. a new favorite!

The kids and I are obsessed with this stuff.



And now, I want to let you know that I am giving away a copy of Jessica’s book, Seriously Delish!

Just leave me a comment here and tell me what your go-to breakfast is…I need some inspiration!

Jessica’s recipe also suggests drizzling 2 Tbsp of brown butter on top of the oatmeal. This would be AMAZING, I just opted not to, trying to keep the fat a little lower..but you should totally try it!

    I love that cookbook – just from the picture on the cover!! Lately I’ve just been eating a protein bar for breakfast, but I am definitely trying this oatmeal! YUM!!

  2. Anna Knight

    Eggs over easy is pretty much a staple in the morning at our house. We put these over quinoa or brown rice and mix them together. Really helps curb the mid morning snack cravings! And also a nice cup of Tazo Chai tea :)!

  3. Amy

    I’ve really been loving oatmeal lately but my long-time go-to breakfast is peanut butter toast with a sprinkle of cinnamon on top. So good.

  4. Katie S.

    I love overnight oats with banana, almond milk, chia seeds and fresh fruit on top. I also really love PB&J sandwich french toast for special breakfast or brinner. This oatmeal looks great!

  5. Lauren

    This looks “so delish”! I like to vary my breakfast (when I’m not to sleepy/lazy). It’s usually oatmeal with fruit, egg scramble (love to add avocado), or a smoothy. And ALWAYS coffee ??????

  6. Barbara Stoklasa

    Well my go to breakfast is much less than inspiring… I go for the Greek yogurt and a Nutra Grain bar… That’s why this recipe appealed to me so much.

    I love oatmeal and eat it every Monday thru Friday. Saturday and Sundays are kind of cheat days for me. I have started to get a little bored with the regular oatmeal cooked on top of the stove. This sounds like a delightful change and I love the fact you can prepare the night before. Thanks for sharing/

    I try to eat a protein rich breakfast but it doesn’t always happen. When I’m being good I like to scramble and egg with onion and spinach and a little cheese. This oatmeal sounds so good and I have coconut milk!

  9. Amy

    Right now it is fresh peaches…yum!
    i have a thing with the texture of oatmeal, but this looks so good I need to try it,thanks!The cookbook looks amazing.

  10. Laura B

    My go-to breakfast is simple and basic, six egg whites scrambled with tomatoes and basil and a piece of dry multi-grain bread. Fast and easy!

  11. Lisa Fearis

    I love everything you love!
    My “go to” breakfast is a banana with peanut butter rolled in homemade granola 🙂
    Thanks for posting such yummy goodies!

    i have been making baked oatmeal for a long time now ever since my mom got sick it was one of her staple meals she use to say it heals what ails you i used to make cinniman/brown sugar pancakes as well another one of her loves 🙂

  13. Ashley P

    I have been eating toasted English muffins with chocolate cream cheese lately- the chocolate in the morning definitely helps kick-start the day 🙂

  14. Everything you said about Jessica is so true and it’s what makes us all love her! I love the book and saw that oatmeal too and now I want to make that! I have no inspiration for you because well, I don’t make proper breakfasts very often other than toast, cereal, etc.

    1. annelouise

      Pre-made Breakfast muffin.. Scrambled egg, turkey sausage, cheese, or verges, or, one favorite vegy, or avocado slice, on a english muffin, in a pita, on a croissant, with bacon, ham, and apple…all yummy for the tummy! Super easy to prepare ahead, use lemon juice for browning fruits, freeze or in icebox for a few days is a great on the lets go!
