Baked Oatmeal

I try to eat oatmeal for breakfast every day, but I really don't like it. I can manage if it's dry, but if it comes out real runny.. yuck. I don't have time to make old fashioned oatmeal on the stove every morning, so I use instant.. but unfortunately, instant isn't as lactogenic as the regular stuff. So I decided to make this:

4 cups oatmeal
1 cup brown sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter
2 eggs
1 cup milk
Frozen raspberries

Preheat oven to 350. Mix dry ingredients first, then wet ingredients. Pour into a 9x13 baking dish. Add raspberries. Bake for about 40 minutes.

I added more oatmeal than the recipe I found called for to ensure it wasn't too moist. I also used less milk because the frozen raspberries add a lot of liquid, and the original recipe called for dried cranberries. It was super easy to make and came out just right. I much prefer this to instant oatmeal. Next time I'm going to try it with diced apples and cinnamon, or maybe blueberries. I was tempted to add some chocolate chips to it, but I stayed strong.
