make this this weekend

...and eat it all week. 

This is almost a joke that I'm even posting a recipe (my oven didn't even work for the first three months I lived here), but I just had to share the wealth. This *almost* vegan oatmeal casserole will rock your world and simplify your weekday breakfasts. It's basically desert masquerading as health food. my fave.

recipe after the jump.


The original recipe came from here. I took out some of the sugar, butter, milk'll see. 

Dry Ingredients
3 cups oatmeal 
1 teaspoon baking powder 
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 6oz package raspberries
1/4 cup chocolate chips (you could go dark and make it vegan, I only had milk)

Wet Ingredients
3 cups almond milk (I used vanilla)
1 banana mashed 
1 tablespoon vanilla extract

1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup chocolate chips
1 banana cut in slices
1/4 cup blueberries 

Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl. 
Mix the wet ingredients in a separate bowl. 
Pour the dry ingredients into a greased (I used EVOO) 11 x 7 pan. 
Pour the wet ingredients on top, and slush it around. Add more almond milk as needed. 
Decorate with toppings. 
Bake at 375 for 35 minutes. 
I put mine in the fridge and cut a square out each morning. Zap it in the microwave for a minute and pour almond milk on top. DELISH.
