easy breakfast

whew it's 10:30 and i'm finally able to sit down and relax. what a productive night!

but honestly, i'd rather have a super busy day than a relaxing one. {i always have a list, and i always check things off that list.} some nights, like tonight, i immediately start on my to do list as soon as i get home. 'cause once i sit on that couch.. oh there is no gettin' up. i google. i check facebook. i youtube {by the way, get on there & watch family feud pork loin on ellen - hilarious!}. i check facebook. i catch up on my dvr. i update twitter. i check facebook, again.. its a sad sad cycle. it's like pringles, once you pop you can't stop.

so my to do list for this evening:
eat dinner {yep it's on there}, clean the piles of things on my desk, put crafts away, and start cleaning out & organizing the closet in the office - turns out i didn't just start this..

yep, i got everything checked off & completed. score!

ok because i know you want more than just my evening recap, here is an easy & yummy oatmeal recipe i found on pinterest...

blueberry & raspberry baked oatmeal
recipe from!

1 cup old fashioned rolled oats
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
pinch of salt
1/4 cup maple syrup   i used sugar free
1 cup milk   i used almond milk
1 large egg, lightly beaten
2 tbsp unsalted butter, melted & cooled
1 tsp vanilla extract
2-3 ripe bananas, peeled and sliced
1 cup blueberries or raspberries   i used both, frozen & a few extra

preheat oven to 375.
lightly grease 2 quart baking dish.
mix oats, half of the walnuts, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt in medium bowl. stir to combine.
in a separate bowl, combine the syrup, milk, egg, butter, and vanilla.

spread the sliced bananas in a single layer over the bottom of the baking dish. top with half of the berries. 
sprinkle the dry oat mixture over the fruit in an even layer. 
pour the liquid ingredients evenly over the oats. 
sprinkle the remaining nuts and berries over the top. 
bake for about 35 minutes, or until the oats have set. 
let cool before serving.

before the oven, after the oven. they look the same huh?

next time, i may use a smaller dish or add in more berries - or both!
this recipe was yummy the entire week and made for easy mornings.

enjoy! XO
