What I like about this recipe is that it’s a great do ahead breakfast that actually tastes good! Now, I’m picky about oatmeal & I don’t like it mushy! I like this baked oatmeal because it has a much better flavor than stove top oatmeal & the texture is just right – not dry – but not mushy! So if you are in the mood to add something else to your morning meal, this is a great choice.
2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup almonds, walnuts or pecans
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp baking powder
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp unsalted melted butter
1 1/2 cups of milk
2 tsp vanilla
2 bannas or 2 small apples
1 cup fresh or frozen berries
Bake in a greased 8 inch square baking dish on 300 degrees for 30 minutes.
Slice the bananas or apples very thin and arrange on the bottom of the baking dish.
Sprinkle the berries over the fruit. Set aside.
In a bowl, combine the oats, nuts, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg, cooled melted butter, milk and vanilla.
Cover the fruit evenly with the dry ingredients
Pour the wet ingredients evenly over the oat and fruit mixture.
