Raspberry Almond Baked Oatmeal


This weekend I modified by Blueberry Baked Oatmeal recipe slightly to use the berries we had in the freezer since our blueberry stock has run out *sad face*.  So I decided to use raspberries instead.  I swapped out for raspberries a few weeks ago except Gord found the oats a bit too tart with raspberries so this time I added a touch more maple syrup and it's absolute perfection! 

I personally love the raspberry almond combo so I'm looking forward to our breakfasts this week.

With that done it's time to move onto meal planning for the week!  Be sure to check out this weeks meal plan and all the others here!
