baked oatmeal



Slightly adapted from Super Natural Every Day

Serves 6

2 C. rolled oats
1 C.  almonds, chopped
1 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp.  salt
2 C. almond milk
1/3 C. maple syrup
1 large egg
1 T.  unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
2 tsp.  vanilla extract
2 bananas, sliced into 1/2-inch pieces
2 C. mixed berries

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Add half of the butter to the inside of a square or round 8-inch baking dish and place in oven for 5 minutes.
  2. In a bowl, combine the oats, half of the almonds, the baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.
  3. In another bowl, whisk together the maple syrup, the milk, egg, half of the butter, and the vanilla.
  4. Spread a single layer of bananas across the bottom of the buttered baking dish, followed by about two-thirds of the berries on top.
  5. Pour the oat mixture in the dish over the fruit and then drizzle the milk mixture over the oats. Scatter the remaining berries and almonds over the top.
  6. Bake for about 35 minutes, until the top is golden and the oats are set. Let cool for a few minutes.
