This week’s menu and Urban Nester’s Gluten Free Baked Oatmeal Casserole

Posted Jul 30 2012 6:54am

I’ve been spending money like crazy so I have to remind myself to keep making food whenever possible. Last night I made the Urban Nester’s Gluten-Free Baked Oatmeal Casserole so that breakfast is a little more special this week!


Urban Nester

Total Time: 50 minutes


  • 2 cups gluten-free rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup walnut pieces
  • 1 cup raspberries {any berries work}
  • 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ripe banana, peeled, 1/2-inch slices


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F and spray the inside of a 10-1/2 by 7 inch baking dish with cooking spray and place on a baking sheet.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the oats, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, half the walnuts, half the strawberries and half the chocolate. (Save the other half of strawberries, walnuts and chocolate for the top of the oatmeal).
  3. In another large bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, butter and vanilla extract.
  4. Add the oat mixture to prepared baking dish. Arrange the remaining strawberries, walnuts and chocolate on top. Add the banana slices to the top then pour the milk mixture over everything. Gently shake the baking dish to help the milk mixture go throughout the oats.
  5. Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until the top is nicely golden brown and the milk mixture has set.

As for dinner here is what I’ve planned the following (I’ll post the recipes later this week!):

  • Sunday: Fish Tacos and Cucumber Apple Salsa
  • Monday: Crock Pot Mediterranean Chicken and Wild Rice
  • Tuesday: Bombay Shrimp
  • Wednesday: Pasta and meatballs (Go-to easy meal!)
  • Thursday-Tuesday: TRAVELING TO CHICAGO!!!!!!!!

I need to have easy but tasty meals in order for me to be good about making my dinners. I don’t mind doing something a little more time consuming on the weekends, but during the weeks we already don’t eat until 8 or 9 PM most nights because we are so busy, so something easy is a must!

I’m working out after work so I’m looking forward to my already made crock pot meal!!  This morning Dave said it smelled like we live in Redbones !  Well I’d rather it smell like Redbones than some other places! :)

Do you usually do easy meals during the week and be a little more adventurous on the weekends?

What is your go-to easy meal?
