I love oatmeal! The new thing is to make overnight oats. I don’t like cold oatmeal so this fits the bill for me! You can make ahead and then heat up a piece to go! Or warm slightly and eat like a soft oatmeal bar! Either way you can add any fruit or nut to make it your own!
Baked Oatmeal- taken from Epicurious and then modified
- 2 cups of rolled oats
- ½ cup nuts-I used pecans toasted and chopped
- ¼ cup maple syrup
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 ½ tsp cinnamon
- Heaping ¼ tsp sea salt
- 2 cups almond milk
- 1 egg
- 3 TBSP coconut oil-melted
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 1 ripe banana
- 1- 1 ½ cup of berries
Mix oats, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, milk, egg, coconut oil, vanilla and syrup. This is your oatmeal mixture.
Grease bottom of pan-I used Pam then layer bottom of pan with banana and 2/3 of berries-I alternated banana with berry. Cover fruit with oatmeal mixture. Sprinkle with nuts and remaining berries.
Bake at 375 in the top 1/3 of the oven in an 8 in square dish 35-45 minutes.
