Raspberry Almond Baked Oatmeal

Raspberry Almond Baked Oatmeal:  A healthy way to start the day! - Slice of Southern

Happy New Year!  Let's have a healthy breakfast to start off the new year.

Oatmeal is full good nutrients and fiber.  It's great for breakfast as it keeps you full until lunch time, plus during these cold winter months oatmeal is a warm comforting food to eat!

We typically eat a nice breakfast on the weekend and this dish fits right in with our Sunday breakfast plans.  Plus, you can put this dish together the night before if you choose and just bake it in the morning.  However, it doesn't take very long to put this together.

Another plus is that this should you have leftovers this dish keeps well in the refrigerator for 3-4 days making this a great take along dish of leftovers that you can just potion and heat up in the microwave.  Add a splash of milk for a creamier dish if you want.

We love baked oatmeal.  I like it because it's moist and creamy without being overly mushy.  MGG on the other hand likes to add a little more milk to his portion for extra creaminess.  I also love that this dish is a little tart from the berries, a little spicy from the ginger, and little sweet from natural honey (healthy stuff here!) and a little crunchy from the almonds.  It's a winning combination.
