First things first. Jessica’s book is OUT on shelves you guys!!! Words cannot even express how genuinely excited I am for her. She is a powerhouse in the kitchen and in the blogging community so it’s no surprise that her book is absolutely spectacular. I’ve literally read every recipe and poured over every photo. It’s inspiring. Jessica’s amazing. I’m hungry.

The moment her book fell into my hands I immediately snatched a pad of post-its and marked easily 40 recipes to make. There’s SO many to choose from! With recipes like slow cooker short rib breakfast hash and BBQ chicken & sweet corn pizza OHHHH and pistachio cream cake with chocolate ganache {I die} you can clearly see what a tough job it was to pick one recipe to share with you. But my eyes, heart and stomach kept coming back to her raspberry baked oatmeal. And all of a sudden I had visions of sending my girls off to school, skipping home to make a cup of coffee and sitting down to this baked oatmeal.

So that’s exactly what I did.

It’s currently baking as I’m typing and my stomach is growling and I literally can’t take another second. There is 3 minutes left on the timer and it’s killing me, slowly. By the time I reach the end of this post I’ll have eaten a bowl or two and I’ve never been so excited to eat oatmeal. Ever.

This oatmeal has raspberries and coconut milk in it AND it’s topped with brown butter. For the love.

In a bowl measure and add in 1-1/2 cups old fashioned oats, 1/2 cup loosely packed light brown sugar, a teaspoon baking powder and then a 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Oh and just so you know I’m all about the Bob’s Red Mill extra thick cut oats… they’re my fave.

Whisk those together and scoot this off to the side.

In a separate bowl crack in one egg.

Give it a quick beating…

…before adding in a half cup of light coconut milk. Liquid gold right there.

Then add in a half cup of applesauce.  I used the unsweetened variety. I always have this on hand and use it in baking instead of oil. A lot.

Add in two tablespoons melted (not hot) butter.

Then lastly add in a glorious teaspoon of vanilla.

Give it a whisk until blended.

Then pour it into the bowl with the oats.

Stir…

Until the oats are just mixed in.

Add in 2/3 cup of raspberries. I may or may not have skipped the measuring and just added the whole container. #noregrets

Jessica notes that you can use whatever’s currently in season… Like blueberries, strawberries or mashed bananas! YUM!

Gently… and I mean GENTLY stir the raspberries in to the oatmeal. One harsh stroke and you’ll bust up a berry or two.

Pour the raspberry-oatmeal-goodness into a  2-4 person baking dish that was sprayed lightly with cooking spray {I used my Misto} and then slide it right on in to a preheated 350 degree oven to bake for 25 minutes.

Let it cool for what feels like a zillion years. Really it’s a minute, two tops… but still it feels like eons.

Lean on in…you have to smell this!

I snuck a quick bite of the oatmeal prior to brown butter and coconut drizzling and holy-oatmeal-dessert-wrapped-in-one-amazingness!

But a drizzle of brown butter AND coconut milk sends it over the top. This baked raspberry oatmeal was everything I hoped it would be. It’s not too sweet, not too cinnamon-y and the raspberries are bright and add just the right touch of tart.
