baked raspberry oatmeal with brown butter drizzle

To think, I thought I would have nothing to write about today.

Then a mouse scurried across my apartment floor IN BROAD DAYLIGHT.

And now you get to hear about my vermin woes.

So lucky, you are.


First of all. Aren’t rodents supposed to be NOCTURNAL?!

5pm seems a little bit too early for them to be lurking around, waiting for the perfect opportunity to eat my farro.

And yes, that is definitely what he was eating. Farro.

He has expensive taste.


Second of all, how is it that none of this ever happens when the.boy is home?!

It’s like these creepy crawlies bide their time, waiting for me to be alone in our apartment because they think I’m the nice one.


Dear mouse.

If I get my hands on you, I am going to decapitate and then eviscerate you and save your subcutaneous fat pads so that my coworkers can try to use your cells to cure diabetes.

Consider yourself warned.


Also, I threw out all of your potential sources of food and/or locked it up in hardcore glass containers. I hope you starve.


Until that glorious day, I will be feasting on this baked raspberry oatmeal and feeling majorly self righteous about it.

Not only is it crazy delicious in a grand slam breakfast kind of way, but it’s also pretty good for you what with all the oats and berries and superfoods and stuff.

Also, BROWN BUTTER DRIZZLE. That will get those endorphins pumping, if nothing else.

This recipe is from Seriously Delish, the first cookbook from one of my most favorite bloggers – Jessica of How Sweet Eats. Jessica’s whimsical writing and captivating recipes never fail to leave me laughing and drooling, and her cookbook does all that and then some. If you love eating and getting creative with your food, then this is a cookbook that you need in your library.

(For the record, I bought this cookbook with my own money and this is not sponsored at all in any way. I just really love it.)


Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to avenge my lost farro.

    Wow! This looks incredible. Definitely on my menu for the weekend!

  2. I was eyeing that recipe and now really have to make it! Um, how did the mouse get to the 5th floor?! My mom spotted a mouse in their kitchen and screamed so loud the neighbors called the cops. Normal?

  3. This sounds amazing – I’ve got to try this! Gorgeous color.

  4. I’ve been eyeing this in the cookbook too! Definitely a yummy looking breakfast. And if you catch your mouse intruder send him to me! I love them for some strange reason…

  5. Johanna GGG says:

    I need more baked oatmeal in my life – and no mice thank you very much – can’t stand them (had one in my kitchen once when interviewing someone to share the house!) I just hope that mouse appreciated the good food on offer in your place 🙂

  6. You had me at baked raspberry oatmeal…but then you add a brown butter drizzle?! Oh my! Awesome dish.

  7. With a breakfast like this waiting for me in the morning I would be lying in bed just counting the seconds until the alarm goes off so that I could get up and eat it!

  8. We’ve had 2 mice in our house, and I’m always torn between how violated my home feels and how freaking cute their faces are. Am I the only one in the world who wants to cuddle up with mice and share my oatmeal with them? Prob. But I hold in the crazy and just live trap/release in the woods.

  9. I know the day is fast approaching when the mice are going to discover our house for the winter. Again. On a positive note, I think I’ll just stuff my face with this gorgeous oatmeal and everything will be A-OK in my little world. Totally loving the color and that brown butter topping! Pinned.

  10. Lynn says:

    You had me at brown butter drizzle!

  11. Mmmmmm … everything about this meal, screams comfort!!

  12. SallyBR says:

    5pm sounds about right for the first walk around the kitchenhood. We’ve got a couple of rodents with that type of attitude, but they met the trap. I hope it was a quick death.

    yes, they prefer to come out when only females of the H.sapiens species are around – I think they sense it by smell. Someone should be studying this.

    good luck getting rid of them (them, you know… there is always more than one, sorry to say)

    loved the recipe…

  13. So lucky, you are–made me LOL because J just got me to watch all the Star Wars movies!! I love the thought of this warm delicious pan to cozy up to—brownie points for having pumpkin in on the mix too!

  14. gloria says:

    Look absolutely delicious!!! and your pics are amazing Joanne!

  15. This is the most incredible baked oatmeal I have seen in a long time!

  16. Liz says:

    Yikes, we had a mouse when my daughter was in preschool. She told her class about the RAT we had in our house…LOL. I hope your varmint is captured soon. In the meantime, it would be easy to be distracted by this marvelous oatmeal!

  17. They say Folgiers is the best part of waking up, but I think it would be this!

  18. I LOVE How Sweet Eats recipes!! I need to get my hands on that cookbook! This looks delicious 😀

    And, ugh, critters indoors are the worst. I can’t say I’ve had rodents in my apartment but I DID have a major fruit fly problem and my fair share of spiders and water bugs. So, so gross.

  19. Julia says:

    Mice are the PITS. I hope the varmit goes away soon. I once lived in a house where a bunch of mice would come out at night and raid the grains in the pantry. Until we could get rid of them, we pretty much stopped stocking food because there was nothing they didn’t get into. Mice make animal killers out of good people, I tell ya.

    This breakfast bake…. UUUUUGH, brown butter me, baby!

  20. danielle says:

    This has been pinned to my “oats” pinterest board. I can not wait to try it.

  21. Heather says:

    YUM. We constantly have raspberries in the house since they’re my daughter’s favorite, so I might just need to snag some to make this.

    As for mice… thankfully we have a cat who is an excellent mouser when we have those. I’d loan him out if I could. 😉

  22. I love baked oatmeal with fruit in it! Especially drooling over the idea of drizzling brown butter all over it.

  23. Sues says:

    omg the mouse totally wanted your farro!! What a jerk. But I don’t really blame him. I had a mouse (I use the term “a mouse” loosely, for a fear it was actually “mice”) in my old apartment and it was a nightmare. I hope you get rid of it soon! In the meantime, this baked oatmeal should make you feel at least a little bit better? 🙂

  24. the brown butter drizzle is what got me! I mean come on? Who doesn’t love a drizzle of butter! this looks insane!

  25. I cannot stand mice. We’ve had 3 in the last month and they’ve all come out during the day when my husband wasn’t home. Not cool!
    I think this oatmeal would help calm my nerves! Love the brown butter drizzle!

  26. Oh dear, we just had some mouse woes of our own. Fortunately, ours was dead. Unfortunately, it was under the floor boards so it stunk up the entire house for THREE DAYS. Nasty little rodents. On another note, I am in loooove with this breakfast. I could live on this.

  27. This baked raspberry oatmeal looks melt-in-your-mouth good! DELICIOUS!!!

  28. That mouse picked the wrong girl to mess with! 😉
    I’m all for breakfasts that are waiting for me in the morning seeing as that I’m pretty much useless until 9:00 am.

  29. what an awesome oatmeal! i love ALL those raspberries! they make it so pretty & pink 🙂

  30. Kate says:

    Poor little Tucker. (By the way, the mouse, like all New York mice, is named Tucker. Because I read A Cricket in Times Square)

  31. Hotly Spiced says:

    What worries me about seeing one little mouse, is that you know they don’t live alone! He was probably the one assigned the mission of scavenging enough farro for the entire family and extended relatives! Good luck with that. I love this raspberry oatmeal! xx

  32. Beth says:

    Your oatmeal looks gorgeous. And ugh, I hate mice. Good luck to you – you are possibly even more tenacious than they are.

  33. I am becoming a believer with baked oatmeal and overnight oats. It took me awhile to catch the train, but I finally did. This is yummy version of the new trend in my life.

  34. This baked oatmeal is divine and we should be eating more these days. I love the fact that it’s made with the berries and pumpkin too! Yum!

  35. Oh no!! Mice are the worst, especially when they are in your house!! You gotta get some traps asap! At least you have this awesome dessert to comfort you though! I love fruit and oatmeal desserts and this one looks so good!

  36. I do not enjoy moments of having a mouse in the house. Can I send you one of my Jack Russell’s to kill it?

  37. Tash says:

    Joanne I an melting, this look BEAUTIFUL! I would totally choose this for dessert too! I only wish that I had some raspberries on hand right now… 🙁

  38. oh my gawd. I would have freaked out. I hate mice. like hate them. and yes, why is he coming out at 5pm?! that’s crazy. . thank GOD for brown-butter-drizzle. . and I still need to buy this cookbook. . damn, it’s like cookbook #25 that is on my list!

  39. Eileen says:

    Mice are THE WORST. I KNOW. We lived in this awful crumbling hundred-year old house in grad school, and you better believe that the local mice really wanted to escape the harsh Michigan winter by hiding in our kitchen. Call the landlords and get them on it, is my advice. Also put things in the freezer if you have space. Anyway, this oatmeal sounds fantastic! Raspberry and oat is one of my favorite combinations. 🙂

  40. Mira says:

    I’ve always wanted to try baked oatmeal, but never found a good recipe! This looks simple to make and full of flavor and deliciousness! Pinned

  41. I kinda want this breakfast for dinner right now… (I love that section on Jessica’s book!)

  42. Reeni says:

    The mouse knew where to find the best food! The oatmeal looks outrageously delicious! Almost dessert-like. How sad is it that I have this book but haven’t cracked it open yet. Boo on me.

  43. Zainab says:

    Bahhaha! Damn mouse lol! And yum!! This is bookmarked on my book too. So many recipes there that I love!!

  44. Ahhhh… mice are annoying. But I can deal with them. Other critters (I won’t name them out of fear that if I did they’d make an appearance) I cannot. I just name any mice I see (we haven’t seen any in our house but we did in our old apt) Gus. That makes me feel better.

    So, besides that… I’m going to have dreams of this oatmeal. What a gem this recipe is!

  45. Oh no for mice!!!

    These baked raspberry oatmeal with brown butter drizzle on the other hand, is impressive!!!

  46. I love baked oatmeal, but I have not had it with raspberries before. This really looks amazing. So sorry to hear about the mouse, I you can get rid of it.

  47. Kelly says:

    Hahaha this mouse certainly has great taste. I always find bugs whenever the hubs isn’t home too – eeks! Hope you catch it soon. Oh my gosh, this looks incredible girl! I’m totally going to gather the ingredients so I can have this for breakfast tomorrow! Pinning!

  48. grace says:

    YUM. baked oatmeal doesn’t get nearly enough attention! i like this version–it’s as beautiful as it is delicious.

  49. Susan says:

    That not only looks gorgeous but sounds so delicious, Joanne! This the time of year for all young mice to find warmer living quarters – much to our dismay.

  50. Megan says:

    When I was a kid, my brother decided it was a good idea to have a pet mouse that he caught in the backyard. It got out in the house and we’d see signs that it had been snacking on lentils and peanut butter chips. Farro definitely takes that up a notch. Sorry about your vermin woes. But the oatmeal looks amazing!

  51. Julie says:

    I’m making this for a group tomorrow. YUM! Wondering if you’ve ever doubled the recipe? I’m thinking a 9 x 13 pan would work. Any suggestions?

    • joanne says:

      Awesome! This is one of my favorite healthy breakfasts. I think doubling it and making it in a 9×13 pan will be perfect! Just watch the cooking time, because it might take 5 to 10 minutes longer to bake in the larger pan.

  52. […] Recipe adapted from Joanne Eats Well With Others […]

  53. I just made this with blueberries & peaches instead of raspberries. Ahh-mazing. I love this!

  54. […] made this baked oatmeal but swapped raspberries for blueberries and looooved it. I added flaxseeds & brewers yeast to […]

  55. Paula McDonald says:

    I cannot wait to try this! Cold winter mornings seem so much warmer when piping hot oatmeal is waiting!

    Sorry to hear of your mouse problem. I could write a book about all of my “mousecapades.” Once you catch your intruder, buy a bundle of steel wool and stuff all the holes under your sinks, in your closets, etc. Does the trick! And don’t forget that they can scurry right up the front of your cabinets in a jiff; saw it myself. And jump straight up out of heater vents…saw that too. They are WAY too athletic! Good luck.

  56. Cyndy says:

    I’ve made this twice now and it’s excellent! Found it looking for a dairy free version for a friend. It’s forgiving too, I just made it at my mom’s where we were short on vanilla and only had cinnamon sugar but it still turned out great. Also, both times I’ve made it the night before to save time in the morning and it’s so easy to pop it in the oven in the morning! Thanks for a recipe that will be my go-to baked oatmeal!!!
