Baked Raspberry Oatmeal with Brown Butter Drizzle

This recipe from Seriously Delish makes oatmeal live up to the name of the cookbook. I just can't use the word "delish" in good faith myself, though. This recipe is not healthy, despite the oatmeal portion, but it's the perfect treat to start the day on a great note. The brown butter drizzle, which I halved when I made it, makes this oatmeal that much better.

Baked Raspberry Oatmeal with Brown Butter Drizzle
1 1/2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup loosely packed brown sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
pinch of salt
1/2 cup sweetened almond milk
1/4 cup applesauce
1 Tbsp. butter, melted
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup frozen raspberries
2 Tbsp. butter, browned

Preheat oven to 350˚F. Spray two larger single serving (1-2 portions) baking dishes with nonstick spray.

In a large bowl, combine oats, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. In a smaller bowl, combine milk, applesauce, butter, egg and vanilla. Add the wet ingredients to the dry until combined, and then gently stir in the raspberries. Divide into the two baking dishes.

Bake 25 minutes or until the top of the oatmeal is set and golden. Remove from the oven, and let cool for a minute or two. Serve with a drizzle of brown butter. (Brown butter is butter that is cooked on the stove until it gets little brown bits and lots of delicious, nutty flavor.) Serves 2 generously.
