Baked oatmeal with bananas and blueberries
1 Cup Old fanshioned rolled oats
1/4 cup chopped nuts- if you want them, I don't use them
1/2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp cinnamon
pinch of salt
1/4 cup of maple syrup
1 cup milk
1 large egg- slightly beaten
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1-2 ripe bananas
1 cup blueberries
Pre-heat your oven to 375 F. Lightly grease a 2 Qt. baking dish. In a medium bowl, combine rolled oats,half of the nuts ( if you are using them) baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. combine with a fork. In a measuring cup combine maple syrup, milk, egg, butter, and vanilla extract. Spread your banana slices in a single layer on the bottom of your dish, top those with half of your blueberries. Next sprinkle the oat mixture on top of that, then top with the liquid mixture. Put the rest of the berries, and nuts on the top of that. Bake for 35-40 min, until the top is brown and the oats of set. Now if you have the patience, let cool for 10 min before serving.
You can use any fruit you would like. Unfortunelty this can't really be made in advance, but it makes for really good leftovers. But like I said, Adam and I can finish a whole pan!
Oh yes, and I'm still pregnant. Graham seems to have missed the memo that the second baby is supposed to come earlier than the first. Oh well!
