Chocolate Raspberry Baked Oatmeal

So, apparently oatmeal is like the super food for nursing mothers...say the nursing gods or whoever is an expert on this type of thing. But regardless, I love me some oatmeal so I've been eating a lot of it these days because it's a pretty quick breakfast and it fills me up. I love playing around with different fruits, nuts and spices in my oatmeal, but one thing that makes it feel like an extra special treat is when there's a little chocolate thrown in there. Who can pass up chocolate for breakfast? This chocolate raspberry version has been a favorite of mine for some time and if you follow this recipe you'll end up with a oatmeal casserole of sorts that will last you the whole week. Just heat up a square in the microwave for 30-60 seconds and you've got a ready-to-eat meal! Also, can I get a high five for writing a post that isn't about motherhood or babies!? *Pats self on back* 

Get the full recipe below.

1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup raspberries, halved

Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, combine oats, brown sugar, baking powder, salt and vanilla extract. In another bowl, whisk eggs and milk. Stir wet mixture into oat mixture until blended. Fold in 1/4 cup of chocolate chips and 1/4 cup of raspberries.
