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!

PicMonkey Collage

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!

  1. 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!

  2. 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 πŸ™‚

  3. claudia

    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 πŸ™‚

  4. Lisa Fearis

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

  5. 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!

  6. Bailey

    Ooo Im gonna try this tomorrow! Omlet sandwiches with ham/turkey, cheddar/Gorgonzola and avocado have been my go to breakfast recently!

  7. 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.

  8. Terri C

    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. yvonne terry

    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/

  10. 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.

  11. 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 ??????

  12. 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!

  13. 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.

  14. 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 :)!

  15. Terry O

    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!!

  16. lisa

    This looks amazing. I am an oatmeal lover,so i will definately be trying this one. We share a common interest in books. I have an abundance of cookbooks. i would love a new one. I swear the only thing on my bucket list are all the recipes I need to I will never get to die. Anyways I was totally inspired by a recipe I found today on for “Golden Brown Maple Granola”.
    Healthy and amazingly yummy. I hope I have inspired you enough to check it out. Love your blog and congrats on your cookbook deal.

  17. LauriM

    I’m in a cereal rut too. I have to eat Dairy-Free, so this recipe would be perfect for me! I can’t wait to see what other great recipes are in Jessica’s book!

  18. Sally Munson

    My grab and go breakfast is honey wheat toast slathered with peanut butter, but I love oatmeal and you better believe I’ll be trying this recipe.

  19. ariana

    It may sound weird, but my go to breakfast is tuna and pureed winter squash. It is filling and keeps me going for hours! Not to mention it has plenty of protein for my afterworkout recovery!

  20. AmyT

    Baked oatmeal is the current go-to breakfast in our house now that school’s back in session. I make up a big pan on Sunday and it makes breakfast quick and easy for 2 or 3 mornings!

  21. Harriet Guajardo

    I’ve been following your blog for quite a time is awesome and inspiring! Love the cover of the book!
    My to go breakfast these days is coffe obviously, whole wheat toasted bread with creamy peanut butter and sliced banana, it’s sweet and satisfying, it keeps me going for about 3-4 hrs.

  22. Colleen

    Each morning I grab a greek yogurt, bottled water from the fridge and sometimes I add some granola for crunch.. Ive learned to start my day off healthy. I grew up on Oatmeal every day in winter my mom served it, Sundays Dad cooked.. never thought to bake it, going to give it a try now, thanks!

  23. taryn

    My new go to breakfast is Masala oatmeal (rolled oats, veggies and Indian spices cooked in chicken broth) and a fried egg. Savory breakfast ftw.

  24. Gloria Furgason

    Well, I’m on the boring side. I just have a banana and toast and coffee unless we go out, then I have bacon and eggs with hash browns and toast

  25. Melissa

    My kids love “omelette muffins!” Whip up a dozen eggs, mix in whatever you’d put in an omelette, divvy up into a muffin tin and bake. Easy breakfast for several days πŸ™‚

  26. I have been eating oatmeal made with a stick of cinnamon evaporated milk and 2% milk with a pinch of sugar with wheat toast and butter. I use the bread to scoop up the oatmeal and it’s delicious.

  27. Christie

    Sadly due to busy mornings, our go to breakfast here is either cereal, eggs, or pancakes. However, my daughter loves m&m’s in her pancakes and I love chocolate chips in mine. I have a bag of white chocolate chips now that I’ve been using. Yum! Guess I know what I want for breakfast tomorrow πŸ˜‰

  28. Debra

    my go to breakfast of late is a yogurt parfait I get at work. I could make it myself, just to lazy! Yogurt, berries and granola (I typically go for the blueberry) YUMMM!!
    This oatmeal sounds good too!

  29. Amanda Pen

    I usually throw fruit, a banana or some berries, in the blender with 1% milk and a Carnation Instant Breakfast packet for a quick breakfast drink.

  30. Christina M

    I’ve been making overnight oats with almond-coconut milk, yogurt, frozen fruit and ground chia. It keeps me going until lunch time, which is hard to do considering I get up at 5am. I’m a loyal follower of Jessica’s blog and man I’d LOVE to win this cookbook.

  31. Cindy Wheatley Holland

    Nothing special for breakfast…almost always yogurt and sometimes cereal with banana…BORING! πŸ™‚ I will have to try this Baked Raspberry Oatmeal…Thanks for the Great Giveaway! πŸ™‚

  32. katie

    This looks like a seriously good cookbook to look through and try from! I often do instant oatmeal in the mornings but your raspberry oatmeal looks so good I must try it. Thanks!

  33. Sarah

    In the winther I love to eat oatmeal with lots of cinnamon on top, but in summer I usually pour some yoghurt into my popsicle molds. It’s great days as a snack too πŸ™‚

  34. Cara

    Oh my goodness,we’ve recently become obsessed with baked oatmeal too! The recipe I use is slightly different, and I add raisins instead. It’s this incredibly moist, dense, chewy, sweet, addictive deliciousness. Our family of five can go through a full 9×13 pan in 2.5 days flat, and that’s restraining myself, ha! I recently made it for two friends who immediately begged for the recipe. Sooo Yummmy! Definitely revolutionized breakfast in this house. πŸ™‚

  35. My go-to breakfast most days is about a cup of fresh, cold red grapes and a cup of coffee. Maybe not the most healthful and certainly not inspirational, but it’s the way I enjoy starting my day. I also, in the cooler weather, love steel cut oats with some fresh blueberries and a touch of honey. I use almond milk if I put milk on it-lactose intolerant like so many others. Sounds good-maybe I’ll fix that tomorrow. πŸ™‚

  36. Lyn

    I usually have coconut greek yogurt or peanut butter on toast but every now and then I’ll make a baked blueberry oatmeal and that lasts me for several days.

  37. I`m not sure if it`s because I recently graduated college, but my go-to breakfast has always been some sort of sweet buns, sweet rolls (Hawaiian sweet rolls), or pastry bread from bakeries with a cup of milk.

    I love baked oatmeal and can`t wait to try this!!

  38. Silvia

    I can’t really say I have THE Perfect Breakfast. I like to change, but usually I stick to a very Italian home breakfast: cereals with cold milk or milk (hot or cold, with or without coffee and/or cocoa) with some cookies, and sometimes I switch to tea. But there are two kinds of breakfast that will never leave my heart. The first one is the one I always had when I was a little girl at my grandma’s, the same thing I gave to my great-grandma with a little help, and that’s “fette biscottate” (dry semi-sweet toasts like melba toast) in hot milk with A LOT of sugar. Well, I put a lot of sugar in it because I am quite sugar-naughty. The second breakfast, that for me is quite perfect, is hot tea or milk with a slice of homemade ciambellone (Ring-shaped cake maybe like bundt cake with eggs, yoghurt and lemon zest but not glazed) or crostata (tart with shortsrust pastry, not very buttery, with delicious homemade jam), and maybe a fruit or two. The best thing is to add a nice freshly squeezed orange juice. Oh, that’s quite perfect.

  39. Bethani

    We love German pancake at our house. We also do muffins pretty often, as they can be changed up easily, and the leftovers are portable for lunches and snacks.

  40. Jane

    I love vanilla Greek Yogurt with Kashi granola and fresh strawberries. The yogurt lasts a long time in fridge so I don’t worry about nothing available for breakfast! (And I don’t grab donuts)

  41. Nicole

    Does anything that you can eat on the way out the door count? Lately, frozen waffles (I know, I know) with a little cinnamon! This recipe will definitely beat that!

  42. Pat Vasil

    My breakfast depends on the weather – oatmeal if it is cool, yogurt and honey if it is warm, english muffin with cinnamon and sugar, and for some reason I just love mini wheats.

  43. I’m definitely trying this! My go-to lately has been overnight oats because I usually don’t have too much time in the morning to prepare anything before running out the door!

  44. Patricia

    I just found your site and I love the smattering of recipes! My “go to” breakfast during the week consists of 2 slices of toasted marble rye bread with very little butter. On weekends we enjoy poached eggs on toast.

  45. Julie

    I’ve read Jessica’s blog for years, too. Would love to win a copy of her cookbook. This oatmeal looks fabulous! I actually had oatmeal (instant) made in the remnants of a peanut bar jar for bfast yest. Today was frozen french toast warmed up in the toaster. Are you sensing a theme here? (quick & processed) πŸ™

  46. Juliann

    We are always in a hurry here, so cereal or fruit is usually a go-to, but I also make a batch of pumpkin or banana pb muffins every now and then and throw them in the freezer for a quick yummy breakfast.

  47. The timing of this post is perfect! I have some strawberries that really need to be used and I’ve been trying to eat more oatmeal as I recently read about how it expands in your gut to help you feel full. Since I can eat pretty much any time, I need all the help I can get convincing my stomach that no, it does not in fact have to have more food less than two hours after breakfast. I had oatmeal this morning and so far so good!

    But when I’m not eating oatmeal, my go-to healthy breakfast is three scrambled eggs with a little salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper. Not too exciting, but relatively quick, tasty, and filling.

  48. Colleen

    Just came across your blog and i love it!!I I would love to win the recipe book. I need ideas…my go to breakfast is usually a banana smeared with peanut butter ????

  49. Eleasah Allard

    I’ve been eating baked oatmeal for years but I love that this one has coconut milk in it.. yummm! My breakfast go to lately has been apple pumpkin bread with some natural cheddar cheese. ‘Tis the season for pumpkin!

  50. Cecilia

    My go to breakfast is plain strawberry PopTarts…just something about them πŸ™‚ But this dish looks YUM, YUM, YUMMY!!! Making it tonight for breakfast in morning…can’t wait!!! Thanks for sharing!!!

  51. Alyssa Cattanach

    My “go to breakfast” lately has been Hard Scramble Pancakes for the kids. It is an absolutely delicious pancake made with oats. It is so different and so good – my kids and I love them. I try to add at least half whole wheat flour and my kids don’t even flinch, they are that good.

  52. Lisa

    My work day breakfast is usually 1 slice of whole grain bread with peanut butter. No jelly. Never jelly. A quick fold in half and I bring it to work. I love peanut butter. Kind of in an unhealthy way!

  53. Karen Frost

    I’ve recently been hooked on overnight oatmeal in a jar, with 1/4 C instant oats, 1/4 C greek yogurt, 1/4 milk. Throw in some Chia seeds, cinnamon, vanilla. Next morning at a dash of salt, sunbutter and fresh fruit. YUM! I can’t wait to give your recipe a try for tomorrow morning. Now if I could just get my kids hooked on oatmeal.

  54. Amber W

    My go-to breakfast for fall is a pumpkin, banana, vanilla smoothie. I use frozen bananas, almond milk, cinnamon and vanilla protein and hide πŸ™‚ a handful of spinach in it -my hubby, 2 and 4 yo LOVE it and I love them loving it full of so many fruits veggies and protein!

  55. Hannah

    My go-to breakfast is not near as exciting as baked oatmeal…I usually have a couple hard-boiled egg whites, as well as a banana and homemade cinnamon almond butter!

  56. Kathleen Eaton

    Thank you for sharing the oatmeal recipe, its just what I need to take to Ladies Bible study tomorrow morning. Sad to say my go-to breakfast is too simple…just cereal and milk or a bagel, I know, not original at all. I would love to win the book….good luck me!!:)

  57. Ok I’m a total fitness and health nut at breakfast time, so I either make a bowl of oatmeal cooked with egg whites for added protein, or I make pancakes out of Vega protein powder, banana, egg whites, almond milk, and spinach blended together. Top with nut butter and fruit. Yup, I’m that person.

  58. Julie

    My go to breakfast, and i’m watching calories too, is a rice cake with Justin’s Maple Almond Butter, topped with sliced bananas… delish! But I plan to try this on the weekend!

  59. Erika

    My go-to breakfast is a green smoothie – almond milk, peanut butter, spinach, a banana, frozen raspberries, and plain Greek yogurt. So good!

  60. Alisha

    Usually it’s two eggs…scrambled, boiled, or over easy. I’ll occasionally make a smoothie, or go REALLY wild and have toast with my eggs. Oh, but if it’s a busy morning, and I have to eat on the go, it’s always a banana and greek yogurt.

  61. Rena

    Wow the way you described jessica and her book is exactly why Id love a copy! Been a huge fan of yours and hers for a few years now and so excited for you both on your cookbooks! Baked oatmeal is a favorite of mine and this recipe is my next to try. Last night for dinner I made a strawberry german pancake in the oven, was delicious and would be great for a quick breakfast too! Another great idea is egg muffins! Would love to hear some more ideas if you try πŸ™‚

  62. Penelope

    When I get the chance to eat breakfast, it’s yogurt. If I don’t then it’s nothing at all. Terrible I know but I can’t wait to try this oatmeal since I can reheat it!

  63. Jaime

    I have 15 pounds to go before reaching my goal weight of 100 pounds down…so…every single morning, it’s plain Greek yogurt and a little raw honey. But I am so bookmarking this for a splurge meal!!!

  64. Lysa Christopher

    My go to breakfast is egg whites with spinach and feta cheese scrambled together. You can use fresh or frozen spinach. I also enjoy a piece of whole grain toast. It gives me the energy I need to move through my crazy day!!

  65. Elizabeth

    Nothing fancy, a small bowl of Grape Nuts which I eat in small portions so it stays crunchy in my milk. But it is so delicious to have that crunch in the morning.

  66. Vicki H.

    Three cheers for Jessica! I do feel like we are friends…and I haven’t actually met her!

    Lately, my go-to breakfast is protein bar with some watermelon from our garden (actually had a 30-lb watermelon!). However, I LOVE breakfast burritos (turkey sausage, eggs, green peppers, little cheese and wrapped in tortilla, sometimes add in a couple tater tots). I tend to either buy the sausage precooked (I know!) or I brown it and keep it browned in the freezer. I like to freeze some burritos and heat them up too!

  67. Marcia

    My weekday and weekend go-to breakfasts are 2 radically different things. My weekday go-to breakfast has unfortunately become my pen cap at my desk at work, or my cuticle – or something equally nutritious.
    Weekends however, I love a toasted english muffin with ricotta and blueberry jam and a good cup of strong coffee. Nothing elaborate – just easy and good!

  68. Kate W

    I have been in a smoothie rut for the last few months, but now that it’s cold in the morning I am find myself wanting to go back to the instant oatmeal. I should try to make this baked oatmeal the night before so I can just re-heat in the morning!

  69. Wendy Schatz

    My 3 favorite breakfasts are either yoghurt or oatmeal with fruit or left over homemade soup. I make an effort to mix things like chia seeds and bran to the oatmeal or yoghurt to increase the nutritional value. This is the start of my favorite time of the year when I often have extra winter squash to puree and add into oatmeal or soups.

  70. Debbie

    On work days, I’m lucky to just throw a yogurt in my lunch bag. On weekends, I love to make scrambled eggs with grape tomatoes and spinach. And maybe some cheese if I’m feeling like a rebel.

  71. Autumn Gardner

    My go to breakfast is my favorite meal of the day! I am in love with it & it’s super healthy! Egg White Omlette w/ chicken, zucchini, sweet peppers & a small amount of salsa! Sometimes I also add Oatmeal & fresh fruit as well.

  72. Robin Christine

    My go-to breakfast is actually oatmeal…so this recipe sounds awesome! I add vanilla almond milk, blueberries, and a dash of cinnamon to mine for a little bit of sweet πŸ™‚

  73. S. I.

    Lately I am into cream of wheat (NOT the instant kind) poured over a Tbsp of honey and coconut oil, then stirred together with blueberries. YUM. When I want to be bad, I stir in a (heaping, ahem) Tbsp of crunchy biscoff in the plain cream of wheat…hmmm, its like a whole bowl of biscoff, allllmoost.

  74. Kathi Spence

    My go to breakfast is fruit, cereal during the week – a more heartier breakfast of grits, bacon and toast on the week-end. Jessica’s book sounds like it could help me get my healthy on – where it needs to be. Thanks for the chance!

  75. Simone

    Not that I make it for breakfast – but a breakfast food that’s a dinner go-to is some version of a sweet potato hash with some waffles or pancakes and eggs. Pretty sure my sweet potato hash is a recipe of Jessica’s!

  76. Teija

    Workdays my go-to breakfast is usually a banana and a yogurt. I found a delicious crescent roll/sausage/egg cheese recipe that is my special go-to on the weekends. I have to tell you, I discovered your blog yesterday and went home and mixed up a batch of your favorite choc chip cookies and baked some at noon today – WOW!! They are the BEST choc chip cookies I have ever had. My co-workers devoured the dozen I brought in!! Am anxious to bake the rest up for my boys and get their opinions πŸ˜‰ I am looking forward to trying more of your recipes!

  77. Heather

    My go-to is home made McMuffins. Eggs in the egg poacher (not a true poach I know but convenient), english muffins in the toaster, and a slice of cheese on top for a perfect little egg sandwich.

  78. Robyne

    I would like to say that I have a good wholesome breakfast of a boiled egg, yogurt, etc. but I usually have a bowl of Frosted Flakes or Frosted Mini Wheats.

  79. Sue

    This oatmeal looks amazingly delicious and easy. I think I need to try it. Sounds like a plan for this weekend. Thanks so much for all the yummy recipes you share.

  80. I can’t wait to try this recipe. Oats and raspberries go so well together! Would love to win book to find more delicious recipes! When working, my morning breakfast is a cup if tea. I know that’s bad but I can’t eat first thing in the morning! Thanks!

  81. Kelli

    My go to breakfast is cold cereal. I have 6 open boxes of pretty healthy cereal & each day I use 1/4 cup of 4 of them. I mix & match depending on my mood. I sprinkle w/cinnamon & use skim milk.

  82. I admit, I’m not much of a breakfast eater–at breakfast time anyway. However, I am a HUGE fan of “brinner”: breakfast for dinner! This usually consists of 2 eggs (scrambled with cheese or sunny side up), 2 pieces of turkey bacon, and 2 slices of toast (buttered–regular or homemade concoction, jellied, or cheesed). For breakfast at actual breakfast time? COFFEE. πŸ™‚

  83. Lindsay

    I love making German pancakes… Or as my family calls them, “roller coasters” because they puff up in the oven. Just blend the flour, milk, and eggs in blender. Pop in the oven with some melted butter, and 15 minutes later you’ve got delicious breakfast! Yum!

  84. Patricia B

    my go-to breakfast lately has been either cereal, oatmeal, or cream of wheat with fruit… on colder mornings I tend to go with the hot stuff πŸ™‚

  85. KathyL.

    Most days at work I make oatmeal; however, on Wednesdays is Donut/Bagel Day. I haven’t met a donut I didn’t like. Bagels with cream cheese are a close second.

  86. My go-to breakfast lately has been smoothies! There are so many options depending on your mood that day — you can do anything from a peanut butter banana smoothie to a kale and peach smoothie!

  87. Linda

    Most often steel cut oats, cooked in the microwave for 20 minutes, then topped with brown sugar, chopped walnuts and dried cranberries. Sometimes Greek yogurt topped with cinnamon and sugar. Weekend breakfast – lean bacon or a smoked pork chop, fried eggs, baking powder biscuits with strawberry jam, home fired potatoes. Growing up on a farm, this was our standard breakfast. After all, Dad had to go milk the cows, gather the eggs, slop the hogs…

  88. Carmela C

    Love oatmeal and will definitely try this recipe. My go to breakfast is sliced potatoes, spinach and egg frittata. I love it and it is filling and tasty.

  89. Karen Dilworth

    This recipe caught my eye because one of my favorite breakfast dishes is called Hot Cranberry Salad. A dear friend shared this recipe with me and I make it all the time in the fall and winter. I take it to breakfast potlucks and people scrape the crock pot or dish that it is in! Delish Dish….Here is the recipe – ENJOY!

    Hot Cranberry Salad
    From the kitchen of Marilyn Rogers

    1 stick of butter, melted
    1/2c. brown sugar
    1/2c. white sugar
    1c. oats(regular oatmeal)
    1/2c. chopped pecans
    3c. fresh cranberries(1 bag)

    Mix above ingredients in a bowl – toss until mixed
    Add 3 cups of unpeeled apples cut in cubes(Granny Smith or red)

    Spray a deep round casserole dish with Pam, pour mixture in, cover with foil and bake at 325 degrees for one hour (or a bit longer)
    May be mixed up and refrigerated the day before you cook it. (I have also used dried craisins, dried blueberries and dried cherries – super good!)

  90. Kristen Young

    My go-to breakfast is a whole wheat wrap spread with half peanut butter and a little bit of jelly and a banana rolled up like a burrito! So delicious and SOOOOO satisfying!

  91. Natalie

    I only have time for cereal on weekdays, but weekends are much better! I make Swedish pancakes (crepes) and homemade applesauce as filling. Sometimes, we fill with strawberries and pour melted Nutella on top. Yummm πŸ™‚

  92. Misty

    Does cereal count as a go-to breakfast? If we are talking something that requres more work than dumping some milk into a bowl, then at our house it’s biscuits and gravy all the way.

    I mixed 1 cup of my favorite dry cereals (mixed ahead of time in a big cereal tuperware), plain fage greek yogurt, cup of blueberries or your favorite fruit and a sprinkle of flax seed. Love the crunch from thecereal and is much more filling than just yogurt!

  94. Amanda L.

    My go-to breakfast is two eggs (scrambled but cooked like an omelet and flipped instead of stirred) rolled up in a flour tortilla with a little cheese.

  95. Julie F.

    My early work morning go-to breakfast is a wheat bagel with peanut butter slathered on top (or almond butter) and then sliced bananas on top. Easy to carry while running from the house to the car and the car to work. πŸ˜€

  96. Rachel T

    If I have time, I generally do a quick yogurt bowl with fruit and whatever granola/cereal/nuts I have laying in the pantry. If I’m in a rush, just coffee until an apple at work. If only breakfast would magically appear in the morning…sigh πŸ™‚

  97. Stephanie

    If I had the fastest metabolism known to man, I’d be eating doughnuts for breakfast every day, but, sigh, that’s not the case. My healthy go-to is usually a grapefruit with coffee and a bagel thin with Laughing Cow cheese spread on it. NUM!

  98. Cathy

    Eggs on a whole-wheat high fiber tortilla with some mozz keeps me full until lunch! They’re even good cold, so I make my breakfasts for the week on Sunday.

  99. Jessie

    Now that it’s cooling off outside, I like to make pumpkin steel cut oats in my slow cooker. I put the ingredients in a metal bowl and fill the slow cooker with water about halfway up the side so there’s no dried oatmeal in the slow cooker :). I add pecans and some almond butter to the mix for protein. Great heated up, too!

  100. Dee Fedor

    My go to breakfast for the last 6 weeks or so has been a handfull of homegrown tomatoes and some Coke Zero.(Faster than Coffee and toast)!

  101. Ann Umland

    Well, I was on a cereal kick, but since school has been back in session, I’ve been back to work in the school kitchen. The last two or three weeks, I’ve been doing junk from the convenience store, or a breakfast burrito, with egg, bacon & cheese or a croissant sandwich. If we go to the local family restaurant, I get ham & cheese omelette, always, always, always. Guess it sounds like I’m all over the place. But since fall & winter are coming, I’ll be eating oatmeal. I LOVE oatmeal. I will definitely be trying this baked oatmeal & raspberries recipe. SOUNDS DELISH!

    Every week day morning I take 1/4 cup Bob’s Red Mill 10 grain cereal, with 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk and one mashed banana and microwave for 1:30. I add 1/2 tbsp cocoa powder, 1/2 tbsp protein powder and a sprinkle of cinnamon and mix. I then stir in 1/2 tbsp all-natural pb and top with fresh berries!

    Hi! I LOVE cookies and muffins! This recipe came from a lady’s site; Suzanne’s Kitchen. Giant Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Breakfast cookie: 1/2 c. uncooked oats (I use quick oats);1/4 c. egg substitute or egg white; 1/2 c. mashed banana; 1/2 tsp. cinnamon; 1/2 tsp. vanilla; 2 pks. sweetner; 1/2 tsp. baking powder; and 1 Tablespoon mini chocolate chips. Mix all and allow to sit a few minutes before spreading in a small flat baking dish (mine is 5 1/2″ across and 3/4″ deep). I bake it at 390 for 20 minutes. Heavenly! Very filling for breakfast! Hope you think so too!!!

  105. Dawn

    I love oatmeal with raisins, brown sugar, a little butter and a little milk. My mom makes oatmeal with chocolate and peanut butter. My kids (all college age) LOVE it (even my daughter who doesn’t like chocolate. )

  106. Susan

    Something quick and easy, english muffin with peanut butter. We love baked oatmeal and can’t wait to try this recipe. I always look forward to your new recipes.

  107. Brittney

    I love a really good toasted bagle with a fried egg, bacon, avacado, and cheese. It is so good! I also love maple brown sugar instant oatmeal, but as Jessica of How Sweet It Is says, I like to trash it up! I stir in a spoonful of peanut butter, a dash of cinnamon, and a touch more of brown sugar. I also sprinkle a few mini chocolate chips on top. The peanut butter makes the oatmeal super creamy. Mmmmm. Yum!

  108. Shana

    Cream of wheat. I have loved it since childhood.

    Also, I have not loved How Sweet Eats since childhood, but it has changed the way I cook! So excited for this giveaway!

  109. Claudia

    I really want to get my hands on that book – all the recipes look delish (and if you like it, I believe that it is good). My go to breakfast at the moment is a big bowl of fruit with yogurt, a handful of muesli and a drizzle of honey.

  110. Jim R

    My favorite is a crust-less quiche. I first brown 1 lb of ground pork in a pan. Drain off excess fat. Then grate a zucchini, red onion, 2 carrots, and any other veggies from my garden. To save time, I put them all in my food processor. I then beat 12 eggs, add a splash of vanilla, very little salt, and some fresh ground pepper. I then place the drained pork in a 9×12 casserole dish. Add the eggs to the grated veggies, Mix all together, and bake in a pre-heated 325 oven for 40 minutes or until the edges are golden. brown

  111. Lisa

    My go to quick breakfast is greek yogurt with 1/4 cup old fashioned oats – let sit for 30 min – Fabulous! Jess’s food blog was the first blog I discovered and as a result found other wonderful blogs like yours. πŸ™‚

  112. Maggie1025

    Irish oatmeal made the way they taught me in Ireland. Allow the oats (they can be steel cut or Irish oats) to soak in milk a minimum of 3 hours…overnight is best. Cook in the milk and serve. It takes 15 to 30 minutes to cook stirring frequently. They just can’t be beat, especially if you have stomach problems!

  113. Chris R

    My favorite breakfast is oatmeal pancakes! I take 1/2 cup of quick oats mixed with 1/4 tsp of baking powder, a dash of cinnamon, a pkt of Truvia, and a 1/4c of water and 1/4c of egg substitute. Mix it all up and it makes 2 delicious huge hearty pancakes! Low fat, good fiber and very filling when drizzled with my favorite reduced calorie syrup

  114. Jeanette Carter

    Love your site! and this oatmeal looks amazing. My go to breakfast is usually Greek yogurt with granola and a coffee…..definitely a coffee!!

  115. Emily Andersen

    I like to make a big 9×13 dish of breakfast casserole at the beginning of the week (it usually ends up lasting only a couple of days after my husband gets to it though). πŸ™‚ It has eggs, bacon, milk and some torn bread in it! So good!

  116. Dawn Horner

    I make a big pot of Steel cut oatmeal on Sunday evening for the boys and myself. Since we all have different morning schedules and we all love different fixings, I pack up the oatmeal into individual microwavable containers and store in the fridge. We also place the fixings into little snack size baggies and grab, heat and go! It really makes a busy morning a whole lot easier.

  117. Jenna Langford

    This sounds so good and that book looks so beautiful! My go to breakfast is a peanut butter banana smoothie with some chocolate carnation breakfast or protein powder in it. It’s delicious and perfect for people like me who are not big breakfast eaters!

  118. Katie T.

    Avocado toast, peanut butter/nutella toast….yogurt, oatmeal will all sorts of add ins, eggs, done any way. Things that are quick and easy but hold me over.

  119. Joelle Weaver

    Our go-to breakfast is usually scrambled eggs, bacon, & toast because when I ask my husband what he wants for breakfast he always says, “eggs & bacon”! I do try to mix things up though and am anxious to try this raspberry baked oatmeal!!

  120. Lisa

    I absolutely love good oatmeal, and will have it everyday during the chilly winter months. And I will throw in whatever I might have in the house! Fresh cut-up apples with cinnamon is my favorite – love the texture. Add walnuts and I am a happy camper! Bananas and walnuts are also good. Granola adds some hearty crunch. And for days when I need a sugar high – plain ole brown sugar!

  121. Laurie Maestas

    I kinda dont like raspberries, so I substitute it with blueberries and or strawberries, blackberries. Please enter me in the drawing, and God Bless

  122. Claudia

    Well, I hardly ever eat breakfast & unfortunately I have no easy go to recipes. I have tried making pancakes & defrosting them the night before & heating up in the toaster oven or griddle in the morning.

  123. We eat baked oatmeal like it’s going out of style in our household! My favorite on the go breakfast item is a whole wheat tortilla pan toasted so it gets a bit crisp with peanutbutter and sliced strawberries! If the strawberries are tart I add a drizzle of agave! So so good…though this past week my breakfast has been apple crisp….everyday. Still counts as a serving of fruit right!?! Great blog! Looking forward to trying some recipes.

  124. michele

    I tend to go in phases… but it still usually goes between smoothies and oats/overnight oats. pretty excited to get some pumpkin, because that seems to find its way into my oats all through fall/winter!

  125. This looks delicious! I am going to try making it with some pumpkin, pumpkin pie spices and chopped apple…and maybe a drizzle of maple syrup over the top… And the idea of making it the night before and heating it in the morning means it can be a weekday go to breakfast! Weekday got to for me is usually a scone, seasonal quick bread, or toast on really good bread with equally good jam. For the weekend, my go to is always something sweet…pancakes with seasonal ingredients or French Toast (Cinnamon Roll French Toast if I’m being really decadent) are my favorites. Thank you for sharing the recipe and for the giveaway opportunity! πŸ™‚

  126. Jean Leong

    My boyfriend and I are currently on the “Whole 30” and it’s a real challenge cooking meals sans sugar being a self-confessed sugar-holic but I’ve been making this omelet that’s making him fall in love with me all over again. It also takes less than 10 minutes from start to finish! πŸ™‚

    It’s an Indian inspired omelet take a couple of eggs and whisk them up with some salt, pepper, cumin, coriander as well as chili flakes (Depending on how spicy you want it to be!) and you can use leftover roasted chicken as a filling or a mixture of different colored bell peppers (I love using all 3 – red, yellow and green!) as well as some onions and mushrooms. I’m sure you could use cheese too which I will after this challenge is complete. For now, I’m happy!

    Serve it in bed with some napkins!

  127. Nancy

    Yogurt Parfait is my favorite go to breakfast! Vanilla Yogurt with any fresh fruit on hand topped with Vanilla & Flax Granola! Layer & refrigerate overnight to meld flavors…granola chewy! Delicious with a fresh cup of coffee,oj????

  128. Alexandra

    lately, just a bagel. that’s what you get when you have a baker for a neighbor, bags full of bagels! and a coffee. always coffee…

  129. Jenny

    Right now, my sweet little girl and I are enjoying having oatmeal together many mornings! But I should mix it up and try this baked version! Thanks!

  130. Marie

    A breakfast taco with scrambled eggs and sauteed peppers, topped with feta and hot sauce, in a toasted (over one of my gas stove burners) tortilla! I eat these almost every day for a protein-packed breakfast. The toppings and veggie fillings vary, of course.

  131. Anne

    I’d be lying if I said my go-to breakfast was anything other than a bowl of cereal with milk. And even that is sometimes too hard to put together first thing in the morning. One way around that is to bake something, so all I have to do is pick it up and put it in my mouth. We often have muffins made with seasonal fruit (this morning’s were pear muffins) or soda bread, which I bake in a beer-bread bowl.

  132. Lisa Oberdick

    I’ve made this twice now – when my husband saw all the ingredients out on the counter, he looked positively gleeful! However, he insisted on adding more raspberries. I’m leaving it unbaked overnight in the fridge to bake in the morning. Thanks for sharing this!

  133. Joanie B

    Love baked oatmeal, thanks for sharing another version. I am rigidly hooked on Nature’s Path buckwheat waffles right now. Toasted extra crispy. Every day. Don’t even need maple syrup on them, they are sweet enough without any. AND a glass of Organic Valley 1% milk please!

    Thank you!

  134. Anne F

    My go-to breakfast during the week is a Cliff Bar or granola bar. Super easy grab and go item for when I’m off to work. But on the weekends, my dh makes me the most amazing things for breakfast – an eggy in a basket (fried bread with a fried egg in the center), homemade corn beef and hash, eggs benedict or eggs with chicken and green sauce. He’s so good to me! πŸ™‚

  135. debbie

    I love taking whole wheat bread that is baked with oatmeal, seeds and nuts, toasted then warm with peanut butter, sliced bananas, then drizzle honey on top. you may need to warm in a toaster oven.

  136. Carley

    I love baked oatmeal and I love Jessica so I need to try this one! I also love Two Pea’s Cinnamon Apple Baked Oatmeal! hmm…my go to breakfast is frozen muffins, easy and semi-healthy!

  137. Linda

    I love reading what everyone else has for breakfast. If I have guests I live making a quiche with Bisquick that makes it’s own crust, bacon and broccoli, topped with cheddar cheese.

  138. Annette

    My go-to breakfast is leftovers. I’m not a morning person, so I just want something that doesn’t require much preparation. But if I do have to prepare breakfast (or if I want to eat breakfast for lunch/dinner) , then I love fried eggs with caremelized onions and bacon.
