Mother’s day is this weekend so I know that everyone is going to be searching for some new and awesome recipes.  I decided that this was a really great idea for anyone who wanted to try something new while even putting their own spin on it because you can use different spices and whatever toppings you please.  Baked oatmeal is a really interesting idea because you just set it and forget it while you prepare whatever else you need for breakfast or brunch that morning.  Some other variations on this recipe could be adding raising, cranberries or even diced apples, really whatever you would normally put on-top of your oatmeal would go great in this dish.  Serve this dish with some of the yogurt waffles from the previous article or the crepes from the archive recipes and your mother would be very proud, enjoy!

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats (not instant)
  • 1/4 cup cane sugar or maple syrup
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons melted unsalted butter
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 ripe bananas, cut into 1/2-inch
  • 1 blueberries
  • Non-stick cooking spray

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F with a rack in the middle of the oven.  Spray the inside of an 8-inch square baking dish.
  2. In a bowl, mix together the oats, sugar, and cinnamon.
  3. In another bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, and the vanilla.
  4. Arrange the bananas in a single layer in the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle two-thirds of the berries over the top. Cover the fruit with the oat mixture.  Drizzle the milk mixture over the oats.  Scatter the remaining berries and remaining across the top.
  5. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes, until the top is golden and the oat mixture has set. Remove from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes.
